Starting with the 2002 model year, the LS6 engine output was increased to 405 hp (302 kW) due to a larger CFM air intake, stiffer valve springs, lighter sodium filled valves and more aggressive camshaft lift and timing. The Z06 is 38 pounds lighter than a standard C5 hardtop thanks to weight-saving measures such as a titanium exhaust, thinner glass, lighter wheel, non-EMT tires, reduced sound proofing, fixed rear radio aerial, and a lighter battery.

With Keith Snook mod is unbeatable!Reviewed May 06th, 2012 by hermespanGreat potential with upgrading options to world class power amplifier with a small investment in the quad 405mk3 circuit board and inserting new wiring, terminals + the opamp from Burr Brown. This article’s lead section may not adequately summarize key points of its contents.
Festivities included gatherings in Nashville, Bowling Green, and St. Louis. Connected to the all-new LS1 engine via a torque tube, the engine/transmission arrangement enabled a 50-50% front-rear weight distribution. Not all loudspeakers can safely accept the full output power of the Quad 405, and the amplifier is provided with a power limiter which is fitted internally for use in such cases. Chevrolet engineered several modifications for the Z06 to best use the increased power.
The Quad electrostatic loudspeaker can be used safely with the power limiter in. The LS1 engine initially produced 345 hp (257 kW), subsequently increased in 2001 to 350 hp (261 kW). The 4L60-E automatic transmission carried over from previous models, but the manual was replaced by a Borg-Warner T-56 6-speed capable of a 175 mph (282 km/h) top speed. Сохранив прежние характеристики, в новом двигателе были внесены конструктивные изменения, в первую очередь коснувшиеся головки блока, где были исключены каналы системы холостого хода — её функции взял на себя электронно-управляемый дроссель. Also in 2003 the yellow paint was dropped in favor of a special red, white, and blue color scheme to commemorate the Corvette’s 50th anniversary. The high power output makes it suitable for use with many of today’s high quality loudspeakers and provides opportunity for farther loudspeaker engineering development with less emphasis on efficiency. Please discuss this issue on the article’s talk page. (February 2017) This article is about the fifth generation Chevrolet Corvette (C5). For general Corvette information, see Chevrolet Corvette.
