Default Who built your LT5?

Well, We've done this in the past for LS7s and LS9s, so let's see those signature plates from the good folks at the Performance Build center!

My gem was built by the talented Mr. Anthony Terry. I'm trying to get the break in miles on it asap so I can hit the track at CoTA.

As you can see from the avatar, I have a real soft spot for ZR1s, dating back 30 years. Still hard to fathom that the new LT5 more than doubles the power output of the original.

I still remember my first chassis dyno at MTI.....344 rwhp was quite an achievement in a day when your new $65k ZR-1 still was equipped with both a cassette player and one of those newfangled CD slots.

The C7 Corvette ZR1 Registry over at the Corvette Action Center has a running list of engine builders at the bottom:

Hey Ron, I sold my C6 ZR1 to a friend, but might buy it back in the future. All great cars. Glad you are well.

Shane Parker built mine on VIN 666.

Funny to note—he built my 2015 ZO7 LT4 also!
