Looking for a C6 Z06


Hi All,

In the market now for a C6 Z06 and was wondering what to look out for?

There is a few for sale on autotrader/pistonheads currently but none are ticking the boxes, particularly price. They seem to vary a lot and I may end up looking to import one.

The only worry I have with them is the valve guides, has anyone experienced any problems on here?

Thanks,
Dan

Re: Looking for a C6 Z06


When I brought up that issue about 4 years ago nobody knew what I was talking about lol and I also did bring up rocker arm needle bearings failures. Again, my response was ..what? never heard of it lol


My advice would be look on the American Corvette forum if you want to know what to look out for as they will be able to offer loads of advice

My advice would be if you do buy a C6 Z06 buy new rocker arms , you can get a complete kit with the bearings installed for about $450

Re: Looking for a C6 Z06


I have just replaced the heads and cam on mine due to the guide problem.
So at the moment I have a set of heads that need a refurb, (all parts available
from AHP or other vendors, inc new guides in Moldstar 90)
A used approx 19k mile cam, lifters and two sets of pushrods, one set OEM, the
others hardened and a different length, would need to check it.
A good set of OEM pistons, had them changed as well, would need new rings.
The original Z06 air filter and housing, will fit LS3 as well.
Also have the original clutch out of her if anyone wants it, only changed
as the engine came out for the piston change, was working without problems.

Don't take life too seriously, after all, your not coming out of it alive.

Thank you for the responses. Id like to find a car that I could rely on. Is there a year that was more reliable?

You will need to factor in getting the LS7 heads done, and when I was looking
I think maybe there was some gearbox improvements after first couple,of years?

Re: Looking for a C6 Z06


I may be interested in selling my C6Z if the price is right. Looking to step up to a Gallardo and start some work on that.

Its a highly modded N/A car with all the goodies to go with. Let me know if you're still interested.
