    I'm not going to lie, that makes me want to buy a Z06. Screw factory delivery options, now there's a factory operation option.

    Wow that is really really cool. Something like that could really add personal value to buying new instead of saving the 10-20% and buying it slightly used.

    Yep, having a plaque with your own name on it as the engine builder is just a nice touch. When will BMW let us do this? Never.

    Cool idea but probably only feasible with a SBC, try that with a M156 or S65/S85 LOL!

    That is extremely cool, I don't care if the motor is 'less sophisticated'. I had a part in building it, and that is something you will never forget.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Agreed, and the LS7 is a great motor no question, just a lot easier to put together than a European 4v.
