A stock ZR1 or a 415ci Ligenfelter ZR1. I already have the ZR1. So if I had a choice it would be the the 415 over the Callaway. More fun and less moving parts.

Callaway Corvette.

Proven performance
Emissions Compliance
Proven history of HIGH residual values


That's why - :upthumbs


Having owned an LPE powered car, it was a PITA w/ the big cam to get it through emissions. I don't want a ZR1, but my reasons are from a collector point of view. :beer

The version on e-bay is a 350ci version, nice but not a 415. There were two versions the 600hp and the 620hp. I believe the 620hp was the one with the choppy idle. The 600hp was with a smooth idle. Either one was a handful. Emissions what's that.

Most states have testing these days. I know FL is an exception :beer

Kansas is another, I've never had to emission test any vehicle .:L

Thankfully we’re free of it here too in Columbus, Ohio. Sooner or later I expect the powers that be will impose it upon us.

As for which of the three I would purchase? It would be a bone stock, as delivered, 100% OEM, ZR-1.

Out of the C4 line up, I’ve felt the proportioning of the ZR-1 body features the best balance and “completeness” in design. The base C4 body seems as if it didn’t spend as much time in the gym compared to the Z. The way the Z’s wide back end flares out and covers the larger tires is nicely done. The overall esthetics of the engine compartment are also my favorite too. The LT5 is visually the most striking engine to be lowered into a Corvette since the Big Blocks IMHO.

I appreciate it, that sounds like a respectable car. :upthumbs

I’m on hold with a ZR-1 purchase for now. I’ve been on the fence about a convertible or ZR-1 at some point. It would have to be one or the other as I’d like to hold onto my ’96.
