Harley:

Yes, the LS6 is made in St. Catherines, Ontario, near Niagara Falls. Mrs Zippy and I frequently stay at the "Inn at Lock 7," motel. This motel overlooks the Welland Canal's Lock 7, which connects Lake Ontario and Erie. Ocean going ships and pleasure craft must use the locks to travel between these lakes....anyway, GM's St. Catherine engine plant is only 3-4 miles from the motel and last year I drove around the plant trying to get a glimpse of a truckload of LS6 engines....no luck, maybe this year I can get an invitation to visit this facility somehow.

Maybe Raj could post this over on the BMW forum so they can whine some more about the Z06.

The most striking aspect of this is that GM's performance claims for the 0-60 are dramatically different from what every car magazine (and virtually every test reported on forums) has shown.

OK be honest just because you haven't seen it, whose figure do you quote when asked, "What's the zero to 60 on this thing?"
I thought so......

Decent compilation, but for afew errors.

1. C&D's 1/4 mile ET is listed as 13.7 - should be 12.7
2. MT did not test 0-30 in their November high speed shootout. Have no idea here that 2.04 came from???
