I am going with yes, and here is why. Not only was the last engine they built for corvette was dohc.

And this is the bigger one...

GM engineers kept being quoted that "the z28 nameplate is for naturally aspirated engines." If there will be one in a camaro, you know there will be one in a vette.

Before I laugh at this guy... I have not changed the plugs / wires in my c7, but the spark plugs go in the cylinder head like every other motor in the world, right?

That's the top of the exposed supercharger housing. Obviously a casting with raised lettering and rows of raised ribs to draw heat from it. The design is consistent with the supercharger top on the C6 ZR1 LS9. Blue Lettering was on the LS9 lid and most likely will be on this new LT5 blower lid as well. You can see that the photo was taken of the top at the rough casting stage before the proud surfaces were machined down. Check out the image of the LS9 blower lid below.

Well it's obvious from the posts here that the dealers have been notified of the release date and other particulars so the announcement should be pretty soon. I'm guessing within the next four weeks.

Hopefully we will know more soon. But, not like Iím going to pay the price they most likely will be asking for the ZR1.

A 2.65 L supercharger poking it's top out of the hood. I have a photo for evidence when they were testing at Laguna. Hope they have a beautiful machined alloy top (ala C6 ZR1) showing a designed ribbing (ala Bugatti Chiron).
