This beauty had a Lotus designed engine. I was DOHC, 4 vpc. That technology makes cars expensive, but it is good that GM took the desition of improving once more their pushrods because they were really eating shit!!! The Z06 is my dream corvette, it is a pushrod and it has the same hp/liter of this one being DOHC. Pushrods use technology from the late 40's, so that is why they are so cheap. I would like to see Chrysler build a competitor for the Z06. That Viper sucks.. come on, it is like puting a 10,000 pound truck engine into an old Toyota Celica. Only displacement, no technology or improvement. Chrysler could bring back their Hemi's and get 400hp out of a 5.7L. I love corvettes, except the one from 1981 to 1990... that was the worst age for corvettes, I thought it was going to to to a Cavalier level or some shit like that. The ZR1 revived its image, then the C5! then a modified C5, the Z06... good choice GMC!!
