    I'm sure everyone has seen the specs on the new ZR1. LT5 engine with a 2.65L Eaton blower. 755 HP, which they say is conservatively rated. The most interesting thing, at least what I saw - it's going to use DI and port injection. Surprised they didn't stay only DI since they have hit such high power numbers in the aftermarket.

    Also interesting was that it is NOT a DOHC like the speculation.

    The DOHC engine is going in the new mid engine platform, not the outgoing ZR1. I forget who got confirmation on that but I did read it a few weeks ago.

    Yeah, I was referring to the speculation that the LT5 would be a DOHC.

    Sometimes I wish I had more money (or less responsibilities) to play with toys like these.
