I need your guys help. I am look at vettes to replace my german "sports car", ha.
Anyway heres the dilemma, I have a convertable now and want another. But I've got the Z06 vs. "regular C5" convertable decision. My whole reason to go to the vette is to eat a few reptiles and burn some 0-60 0-100 runs. Yea I am addicted to acceleration, what can I say.
So the real question is how much would I have to invest to bring a C5 some where past the Z06 at about 4sec 0-60. Which I know is easily obtainable with a Z06.
I mean Halltech's got that LS1 to LS6 conversion for 2K+install which may or may not get me to a stock Z06. But then there are the other mods besides engine on the Z06 that are appealing. I want this thing to handle decently also!
HELP me oh vet experts!

Hi there, and welcome to the ZO6 forum,
As for your decision, I would say an 02 ZO6 is your best bet, as there are more than just the horsepower increases to consider.
They have done work on the suspension, programming, and many other speed parts have been put in to the 02s, that I safely say that this is the way to go, and you will not be sorry.
If acceleration is what you want, look no further, as the acceleration, handling, and the entire package is second to none.
Personally, I like the balance of this car more than anything else, as I am able to outhandle pretty much anything, including Viper, even at triple digit speeds, so best to you, and welcome once again,
I remain, c4c5

If you're addicted to acceleration, the Z is the car for you. If you want wind in your face, just stick your head out the window:).

If you are addicted to acceleration, it seems like you could get more performance for the money by modding a less expensive car.

Also, my 99 Viper *feels* stronger from a seat of the pants metric then our Z06. I think that feeling is because of the low end torque of the Viper. The Viper is just effortless. I definitely need to run the Z06 harder to get a similar feeling of acceleration. Once I get to 4000 plus rpm, the Z06 pulls very well indeed, although I still do not think it's high end acceleration can match the Viper.

However, if you want very good performance, outstanding handling, great brakes (at least for street use), and a nice ride (better then the Viper for sure), the Z06 is an excellent combination.

Or you can have the best of both worlds and have a Z converted into a vert.
