I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for it being naturally aspirated.

That's an interesting point. Have not heard any rumor of a larger version of the LT1 engine but there's been lots of talk of twin turbos and I believe there was a picture of a boost readout on one of the prototype C7's. Also, GM updated the trademark on "L88" not long ago. Guess we'll know for sure soon enough.

Yeah, I know there was a lot of "Z07" talk and lots of turbo/supercharger speculation with it. It's just that Z06 has always been a road course package and NA is just better. Generally runs cooler, torque curve more predictable, etc etc. I'm not in the market so it won't break my heart if they go forced induction, but I'd just still love to see that focus and purity out of their product cadence. Strap the blower on the next one and call it ZR1 with 700hp, that's a different beast altogether!
