All I can say is holy sh#%!
I didn't think it would be that much different from my 2001 MN6 vert which ran the 1/4 in 12.6 @ 114, but it is. It is a completely different car with a different feel. The Z is just plain angry. To think with just one or two mods these cars will run in the high 11's. Incredible!

That was the same feeling I had, cuz I had only test driven a LS1 engine prior to driving the Z.

Finn,

Congrats on the Z! Nice color combo.

I'm sure your following the break in guidlines closely and are just
speculating on the potential power this car makes over 3000RPM!

Have fun and enjoy! :)

FINNO1,
I also had a '01 Z51 6 Spd. convertable that I traded in on the '02 Z06, and yes, I was amazed at the difference too! This car is a different animal. Enjoy!

Yeh, big difference between "regular" C5s and Z06. I had test-driven a few C5s and was lukewarm to them. When I drove the Z06 that I bought, it was like night and day. These cars are truly great.

I "foundly" recall the efforts I had to go to get my '75 Firebird to go low 12s, and now I get a warranty and 18 MPG to boot.

They sure don't make them like they used too...thank God.
