    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.

    I'm not sure looking up the definition would help this guy.
