Went to Columbus, Ohio auto show today. Talked to a man who was displaying the Z06.
He travels the US auto shows and talks and answers questions about the Z06. He was very knowledgable about the car.
I asked him what changes we could expect for
2002 and he said "none". I asked if there were any problems with current production and he said "no".
I asked again about changes for 2002, and an additional 20 hp and he said "no".
I forgot to ask about a color change which we know is true (electron blue).
Any ideas on this?

Frank, he works for GM and travels to all the shows with the Z06.
He was convincing. Almost

They could want to sell as many of the lower hp cars as they can, so they would deny any changes. Thats just what i think

I was at the Chicago auto-show and they said the same thing. But i have heard from many reliable sources that the 2002 Z will have 405 hp. (head + cam)

Dave,

I went to the Cleveland auto show last week and spoke with two guys from Bowling Green sent to help answer questions about Corvetttes. Both commented about the changes for 2002 Z06's. They basically confirmed the same rumors we have been hearing about the Z06.

- 20+ more HP
- Electron Blue replaces NBM
- Different wheels
- Investigating HUD

Xtreme Z06 rolled exhaust plate, GM bra (road trips only) and lots of Zaino.

Corvette Dave....
Take a deep breath.....now heed this! Another Forum member who wrote and said this "person" is just trying to sell as many 2001's as he can...was correct! Take it to the bank...there are going to be chnages for the 2002 Z06 >>more HP..more Torque..and that is as far as I can go with this..
