Crazy?! Z07???

Discussion in '2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06' started by KroutCarsRule, Mar 30, 2004.

  1. Am I crazy or what. Driving down the freeway I see a red blur to my right and look... I spot a corvette and dismis it due to its common presence... (And being the corvette hater I am) But I notice something different... The badge.... Not a standard looking Z06 badge but black... So I look closer and it is a "Z07" so I mouth the words questioningly to the driver and he floors it and takes off ahead... It had a different sound... It was very loud with 4 pipes as exhaust... Must of been 4 1/2 in diameter.... The sound was not smooth but rattly is I guess how i would explain it... I don't know what to think... If I could compare it to anything I guess it would be this current bodystyle Lingenfelter Corvette I saw on a video of kazaa... It was a ZR71 or somthing of that style. It was hard to read, it was a bad quality video... And I watched it take off and on the back I saw the liscense number of "REV R UP" (texas plate). As for the driver he was in a button up white collared shirt like a executive or something. Is this possible that there is a Z07? What did happen though is I looked up his liscense plate on a database I have signed up for and got this I don't think it makes much sense but It could be out of date and the liscense plate carried over to this new car, this new "Z07"...

    The Z07 is an aftermarket kit offered by Motorsport Technologies Incorporated ( They advertise the Z07 as 550+ hp from a 427 aluminum LS6 block, ported and polished heads, custom cam, 4340 forged crank, and lots of other exotic stuff (I won't ramble on that long), all with a 2 year, 24000 mile warranty. They have suspension and brake upgrades depending on preference as well. They show an example of their work, a black C5 that really looks sharp, that runs the quarter in 9.74@147mph. Beyond the badging, they look like real sleepers, too.
    (Also, the exhaust is listed as being 3", just so you know)

    Do you have the 0-60 time and mabey the cost of the package... Does any corvette qualify?
  4. Re: Crazy?! Z07???

    The package costs $18K, plus there are some extras you can get for a little more cash. I'm pretty sure you can get the conversion for any C5.
    As for 0-60, their website and ads don't have that posted, though the site has a dyno sheet for the engine and the ads gave that quarter time I posted earlier. I'd imagine its rather quick, say perhaps around 3 flat if its running mid to high 9s for a quarter mile.

    Yea the Z07 is a after market kit.
