This is going to be a long list of problems so I may as well wait till the car is done and back home till I explain the world of shit thatís happened.
Top cats tho, without doubt the best place... but my car has been a nightmare!

Thing is - Z06 in OEM terms is a far as GM would take things at that time with a 'big cube' small block engine without customer complaints about drivability etc. After-market performance is a little different and customers will accept drivability issues and zero warranty. With the Z06 already being such a complete package you'll be spending serious money to make significant performance gains. IMHO its more cost effective to keep the standard engine configuration and improve the engines 'breathing' - so turbo or supercharger Yes

Re: Heads/cam


Whats the plan for the car once all tbe work has been carried out?
As well as possibly detracting its resale value, compared with a stock Z06, losing the value of the aftermarket parts as well is a big hit to take.
At least a supercharger can be removed and the motor returned to stock later, and the blower possibly sold on or reused on something else.

Re: Heads/cam


No problems with the engine work. All the stuff was fitted without any major issues, itís everyhing else I had a problem with lol!

Really looking forward to driving it. Definatly want to keep the car NA.
Iíve had a fair few cars before and none were kept stock. Stock is so boring, not bothered about resale or keeping the mileage down. I drive it as much as possible.
