THAT's wxactly what mine looks like too, can't be for anything other than tower brace? Could be the same liner as used in V cars?

Actually the V engine sets lower and doesn't have a clearance problem, thus their Z06 bar.
Anyone have a picture of the hood liner from the V?? BUT I think your right Bob, the Z06 bar is further forward??

Yep, the Z06 bar is farther forward than this new design. Item of interest: At the Ohio Meet we all gathered around each others car with our hoods popped. 75% were V cars. We picked minute differences in our cars. Thats how I saw the hard radiator A/C Cover on one of the V's. I ordered it. But to the point, no one picked up on any differences in the hoodliners. Sure not solid proof but..
