Buy what you can afford and then don't have buyer's remorse or publish stupid comparisons to prove how right your decision was.

It doesn't make a difference to me. I just wanted the best blue (LMB) to ever be on a Corvette. I could have just waited a couple of months for the LS3 but I didn't like the baby blue color of the '08.

I have to assume he's just playing around with everyone now. At least I hope so because I stopped taking him seriously after the points of his rationale continued to appear.

Nope. Not even once. Have people come up to me all the time to tell me they love my car. The pile of car show trophies I have indicate many others agree with them.

Ed is that kind of guy that shows his car. A car that will not increase in value nor will it ever become collectible because he did not get a LS7 or a LS9. He decided to go with the little LS3 (the smallest compression ratio of the C6s). When asked why he did that, he got all mad and began telling me it was none of my business LOL. All the rest of us on this forum: we daily drive our vettes. Meanwhile Edward can be found in his garage, OCD cleaning his car with nurse shoes and nurse gloves on.

Your LS3 envy is deafening.

Nah I'm just more realistic, rather not spend so much more money to get a car that is just BARELY better. The LS7 and LS9 are the giants. I like how you did not disagree with my previous statements. Get back to polishing.

They just weren't worth justifying with a response other than the gif I posted.

As I said, your envy is deafening. Your continued arguing of pointless facts have become so asinine it's laughable, but go ahead and continue to make a fool out of yourself.

So wait, you are now agreeing with everyone, saying it IS better now?

You have issues. I still don't get why you're hung up on compression ratio when even with a lower compression ratio, the LS3 makes more power everywhere in the power band compared to the higher compression LS2.

If the LS3 is "little", then what is the LS2? Little-er?

What you're doing is like saying if a sports team wont their championship in a jersey color you didnt like, you still think the team that lost is better.

What drugs are you on dude? There is essentially no price difference between 2006-2009 now in the used market since it is so flooded. So much more money? You mean like $500?

You have some deep rooted issues.

Woosah. Go whack it to some LS2 videos and breathe. Relaxxxxxx.

It's not even laughable. His stupidity about compression ratio trumping power output is laughable. His stupidity about real world data proving the LS3 is faster yet still claiming the LS2 is just as fast is laughable.

Now it's getting to the point where I feel like he's going to start going around and stabbing anyone who drives any vehicle with a LS3 in it out of envy.

The LS3 is better than the LS2 but by only a car length (such a little amount). The difference between the two with similar mileage is 4k to 5k. The higher compression ratio allows the LS2 to make more low end torque over a broader spectrum than the LS3.
