      Interesting that the C5 427 from Lingenfelter is about the same cost/performance/power as a C6 427 from the factory.

      I'd rather have the LS6 it came with, assuming that 150lb increase is from the engine alone. The C5 already had a front biased weight distribution, this engine would just ruin the balance of the car even more.

      Also

      The fastest acceleration runs came by skipping second gear! Once the turbos spooled up in first and the tires broke loose, shifting into second resulted in wheelspin all the way through that gear.

      This car is so fast that even after bypassing second, the twin turbo Z06 managed to equal the time of a 911 Turbo to 60mph: 3.9s.
