    Birthing an LS9

    http://www.autoblog.com/2008/07/16/v...rthing-an-ls9/

    Only 7 minutes, its a good watch if you want to see the ZR1's engine built from start to finish. I know it's not the LSA, but the whole process should be similar...

    I believe the LSA motors are built by multiple people rather than by one person like the LS7 and LS9. Hence, no signed plaques in the engine compartment.

    If I have 7 minutes and 26 seconds to watch the ZR-1 get driven around the 'ring like a bat outta hell, then I guess I have 7 minutes for the building of the engine...sorry for the non-v media...but JEEZ!

    Everybody read the story carefully, they mention that the video was speeded up and actual build time is 4.5 hours. Still fun to watch.
