Default Finally got a C6Z

Hey guys,

I finally got a C6 Z! Yellow 2006 with only 26k on the clock. Pristine condition and bone stock with a Chevy warranty.

I got some worked heads coming in from Texas Speed just to slap on for peace of mind. Iím so happy and just wanted to share with everyone here. I donít think Iíll be modding it moving forward. I donít drag/track it so I donít think I would even use it to itís full potential currently.

I have been coming to cars n coffee for a while without a car since I sold my G8. Once the heads are on, Iíll bring my Z.

26k miles? Warranty? Stock? Holy grail right there.

Congrats man!!! Saw a black murdered out C6Z on one of my 35 trips to home depot today. I think the C6 widebody is one of the best looking vettes ever.

Absolutely awesome man! Congrats on the purchase. I got a chance to drive one of these a while back and it was the best car driving experience I have ever had.

Haha I negotiated it in with the cost of the car... they can do anything if you give them money.

I didnít know it was a possibility until a week ago.

sweet jesus! Grab a case of beer and head over to the corvette forum! It looks like its a series of things and GM refuses to admit it, shocking, I know. Linmar fucked up the machining of them for one. Then it gets tricky from there; some point to the PM guides being the cause and since the exhaust valve is a two piece sodium filled, it cracks and grenades the LS7. People have thought that the exhaust valve generated more heat causing excessive guide wear. But once intake valves started popping up with wear, it pointed to a geometry issue with the run out of the valve seat by linmar (and another theory that a 1.8 rocker was causing side loading on the guide) So now a certain vendor said that a one piece exhaust valve with a bronze guide was the solution and we all jumped on it like a dog in heat. But there was one very respected vendor, Katech that swore up and down the finish on the intake and exhaust valves were too harsh for bronze guides. Guess what ugly mofo is peaking around the corner; those one piece exhaust valves,bronze guides with a valve job to correct the geometry issue are coming back with excessive guide wear. My take on it, if you are not going to get the proper coating Katech suggests for bronze guides, you are going to eventually see guide wear. Another company, American Heritage Performance has a Moldstar guide that can handle the rough finish of OEM and aftermarket valves. American Heritage and Katech are the only two not being reported as having excessive guide wear.............for now. Im one of the people with a bronze guide, one piece exhaust valve and valve job done by "that" company. Needless to say, my heads are coming off in the fall and being sent to American Heritage. The LS7 goes down as one of the most expensive engines to replace, fuck that.
