:yeadog: I agree. I bought an '01 Z, so you can understand my trepidation. Let 'em get the bugs worked out first anyway. As for the power level, I think there's still more left in the LS7. Think about it, it's ONLY coming in at 500/475 at the crank. That's only 425/405 at the wheels. A lot of us are making that with HC and exhaust set ups on our 346s. I'll wait and see what happens in years two or three. I don't see the need to be the "first one on the block" anymore.vinman said:Plan on waiting 2-3 model years. We will have 300C SRT8's with 425hp running around here soon. I don't think 500hp is going to last too long. I extremely like all the performance go fast goodies they have added as a total package.
I'll take an '08 in Red!
I never thought we'd be saying "500 stock HP isn't enough". :usa: Great time to be a car enthusiast!2K3ZO6 said:And I agree with the previous post, A year ago 500 HP seemed like a lot. But a lot of the german sedans are pushing close to 600HP. And the dodge station wagon has 425. Hell, even the plain jane GTO has 400HP now.............. The 500 HP might be a day late, and a dollar short.
If you visit Kerbeck's site and use the price calculator, a loaded vert comes out close to $65,000. I would guess that a Z would be even higher.carzzy said:I have a good idea that the new Z06 will be priced at around $65,000. Will you buy one at that price?
I will not....as it will be too much for my not so deep pockets?
