Someone has that for about $5700,
It would be a good choice,
405hp,406 torque,
Gm warranty is ?
I don't think it could be pieced together at that price

That's what I was thinking, Thank you for your response. I believe I'm going with it. zz6 with 700 r4 behind it I think it's going to be fun.

Auto trans are pleasant. Manual trans are fun.

Just an alternate opinion.

An auto trans is for those who want transportation. A manual trans is for those who want to drive.

Blueprint 383’s are cheaper and more powerful with a warranty. Just FYI.

I'm not really into racing, so I think theZZ6 will provide more power than I'll ever use. But thanks for the info.
