I'd go with the 2LT interior and the Z51 package (if there is such a thing...)

The LT1 is a great engine, but my only concern is that the car would be too similar to my C7 in some ways if I go with the LT1.

However that does not preclude a 4.2L, also a 32 V, DOHC V8, however with with some parts differences (most exterior to the engine), which GM calls a “LTB” (or “LT11” or whatever) , from going into the 2020 ME Corvette.

Imagine for a sec, GM using the 4.2L engine as the base engine for the next gen FRONT engine Corvette.

That way they can put some distance between the higher priced 5.5L engines. If the C&D article is correct, the LT1 in the ME will only be for the beginning so the 5.5L will eventually become the base for the ME.

I'm always in for more choices for the consumers.
