An engine oil tank takes the of the battery against the firewall, and the LS7 a double oil pump with two G in a common housing. The pressure draws oil from the remote and lubricates the engine while the rotor scavenges returning oil the collection pan and sends it back to the There’s a large oil cooler in of the radiator.

And while the engine has a filler cap, oil is checked and through the 8-quart tank.

With a 7000-rpm redline, the 505 bhp at 6300 rpm offers a 105-bhp over the base 6.0-liter; it 470 lb.-ft. of torque at 4800; and to the wonders of electronic engine fuel mileage is exceptional for an of this displacement and power

Electronics also plays a in the exhaust system, allowing backpressure to be kept to a minimum still safely passing the noise test. The stainless-steel diameter has increased from 2 1/2 to 3 in. and are welded to a pair of larger-volume These mufflers each the familiar pair of exhaust but the inboard ones are normally by vacuum-operated butterfly valves.

They are allowed to open when their electronic system senses the throttle-plate and engine rpm have reached a point that is well the range of normal driving.

For the part the existing driveline is up to the job the clutch requiring only damper springs. As with the Z06, only the Tremec manual transmission is available and gets a one-piece countershaft, drives an oil-cooler pump the Z51 version but has the base car’s gear ratios. The 3.42:1 drive ratio stays, but the and pinion set are larger in diameter, means a new rear axle that also gets its own oil cooler.

Starting with the C4, RPOZ51 has the Corvette’s performance handling and for the sixth generation it becomes the far comprehensive Z51 sport package taking the place of the last-generation Even so, the 2006 Z06 goes a further with stiffer a larger-diameter rear anti-roll bar and Sachs shocks. Suspension and the aluminum control arms unchanged except for the upper arms.

Like the fronts, these now aluminum bow-ties extending their bushings so camber can be with shims, making more racer-friendly. The larger brake rotors have and 13.4-in. diameters, are thicker and are by more powerful monolith calipers at the front with pistons used in the rear.

To get all of the power to the road and improve on the already considerable lateral the Goodyear F1 supercar EMTs get in fact, the rears are the widest to find their way onto a Up front the 245/40s become and at the rear 285/35s are replaced by mounted on 5-spoke alloy reminiscent of the last Z06. wheels are manufactured with a ring on the back of their which is heated and stretched a spinning mandrel to form 9 front and 12-in.-wide rear
