I OWN THE SAME FUCKING CAR. How about you don't even try to pretend like I don't know what I'm talking about, what with your vast experience on this subject. :rolleyes
NOBODY takes a LS_ (not LS7) to 8000 RPM. NOBODY.
A few crazy fuckers run 7200 routinely (as the biggest cam you can think of will not be useful if spun above here), but you won't find anyone running near 8000.
The engine in that car is probably a Cartek, etc., build, probably 427-441 ci built to the extreme, and probably still not running much over 7k.

I'd bet 7k at most.

Sorry. Just annoys me when people act like I don't have a clue, ESPECIALLY when owning the car in question.MrKevIsMeToSlow said:Nathan, i got much respect for you man but you gotta relax & calm down on this board
Max obtainable without instantly blowing up and what people run are two different things, man. Nobody would dare take a C5 Z06 engine (that retains ANYTHING stock) to 8000 RPM. There are very few reasons to rev over 7200ish on an LS1/LS6. LS7 is a TOTALLY different motor. Huge valves and a little titanium go a LONG way. Even though the displacement is way bigger, people are taking that engine higher than the LS1/LS6. It's just better. No one (outside of $30k+ total engine builds) will be safely exceeding ~15% over stock rev limits on either engine, though. And there's just no need to, either.MrKevIsMeToSlow said:actually a average cammed, pulley, full bolt on 2001-2003 ZO6 or 2006 C6 ZO6 can actually rev to 7,600 probably @ max...I work on a lot of Corvettes all day & mustangs, i work part time at a shop mainly building mustang, corvettes, vipers, etc....SILVERstatestangs.com
