Forgive me if this is a repost, I searched and didn't see that anyone had posted on the subject.

I came across this yesterday and immediately thought "What a great way to bring a V1 up to the performance level of a V2 while retaining all factory GM parts..."
Has anyone else seen this/does anyone have plans in the works for stuffing one into their V1?

:yeah:

I am sure the LS9 offered as a crate motor will piss off the ZR1 owners:stirpot:.
Then again, the price will be in excess of $20K, which brings up my favorite point---you can do a lot more for that type of money.

options options options. Just keep getting better. Build an LS2? How about crate LS7? Now an LS9? too many decisions!

20K = nice down payment on a 09 V.
