Glad the board is here....I've had lots of Vettes over the years and there is no comparison with the Z06...If some people are waiting for this engine to be put in a regualr C5 ...it won't be a Z06.

Welcome to the Forum, Steve!!
I feel the same as you...there won't be an LS6 in a Coupe or Vert for a few years.

True. It will just be a C5 with an LS6. Many people just don't realize how much more there is to a Z06 besides the engine. IMO, the biggest gains are made through the higher gearing of the transmission.

I don't think you'll see the LS6 in a C-5 unless it's a Z06...

I've also had LOTS of Vettes over the years and agree that there's nothing like the Z06.

I have to agree the M12 pins you in the seat.
The MAF and larger intake help though.
