I think you nailed that one on the head.

When I read it it just works.


Not that I wouldn't want more; I just rather not be let down. :o

No I'm talking crank hp/tq. 480/480 sounds good to me, it would still allow the C6 Z06 to be the better performer between the two with lighter weight, more power, and larger contact patch, and it would give the newest generation Z(whatever) vettes lots of room to grow in the power department.

My honest guess, for the big dog vettes when they do come out, is going to be 600+hp, plus much bigger tires than what they offer on the base car (255/285).

There is some logic to my madness. First, you don't add DI, higher CR and VVT to an engine and only see 20 HP. On top of that the C5 Z06 was 405 HP and the C6 LT was 430 HP. So, doesn't seem like GM has a problem with the base model making more than the prior generation performance/track model. Would be nice, wouldn't it?

I like your logic. I do get your drift and certainly hope your right

It's tough to guess.
DI, high CR, and VVT are good for power. However AFM is bad for power.

But I have a hunch that we will be pleasantly surprised.
