Brings back a lot of memories! I got my drivers license in 1989 and remember seeing the new ZR1 in all the car mags.
I'll have to check this one out later.
Man that guy must be loaded by now been doing these shows for decades
haha the wet vet!! Love that ZR1
Wasn't one of the cobra R's engines a mercruiser or derivative?
I think Ford used marine blocks for the 95r but they still made them.
Timing chain setup is interesting. Looks like a conventional pushrod chain is still used and it drives the chains to the heads.
Ha! Cool info!
Interesting! Never knew the Mercruiser made those engines.
Funny how GM made (or had? Was it their design?) a great DOHC engine for the ZR-1. And the ZR-1 was abit of an unknown beast, atleast over here in Europe.
Despite that, it's all pushrods still.
Just think where GM would be now if they had kept developing that engine instead of the LS series. That said, the LT5 has a huge foot print, and probably would fit in the F-Bodies without a decent amount of work (I've never looked into the possibility).
I believe the engine was actually designed in conjunction with Lotus.
Well the modular engines are huge aswell. All DOHC v8's tends to be quite enormous in size.
Now that you mention it, yes I think I've read somewhere that it was developed in conjunction with Lotus.
They should've continued on that track.
The LT5 is even bigger than a mod motor. I'm believe it's larger than a Vortec 8100.
Great, great video and thanks for sharing! Wet Vette was awesome.
I would love that wet vet boat.
I have wanted one of those for a while. They are actually reasonably priced right and and pretty easy to find.
