Well I've come over from the dark side of having an 03 Cobra, and while it's for sale, I just bought a Red 2003 LPE Z06. It has the 350 CID N/A package. I was told it's one they stopped offering. I was told that it's a 525 HP package, but the car dynoed 431 rwhp with a larger cam than what came with the kit, donaldson blackwing CAI and air bridge, LPE long tubes, and 3.5" GHL Exhuast. It's put as the "Top End Kit" on the receipt from LPE. I'm gonna try to post a picture, but I don't know if it will show up.

Oh, and BTW, I'm 18 years old. But I pay for the car myself.

...and I just looked at GHL's site and I don't see 3.5", so I'm assuming that it's actually 2.5", but I was told 3.5". Seemed kinda big to me. It defiantly has GHL Mufflers though.

I didn't think LPE made a 525 package for a 5.7L N/A. That's a lot without boost. Car looks real nice though. Welcome aboard.

yeah, like I said I don't know much about the package. But I have the receipt from LPE for $9,200 and it says "Top End Kit".

CannibalCobra Welcome Aboard the Good Ship Z06 :z: :z:

The 3.5" GHL system referes the the size of the tips. They (GHL) also make a 4" system.

I know a local guy that has the 500hp lpe kit and he made around the same numbers. Anyways nice buy, I got a 2004 stock instead of this 2002 LPE Heads/Cam/Blower setup now Im debating on putting on this dumb nitrous kit I have laying around left over from my other ls1. BTW I am 20 and got the z06 when I was 19.
