    A zr1 with under 20k miles for 20k is a good price.

    First ZR1, for the C4. Came out in 1990. I think there was a ZR1 for the C3.

    Yea that was what I was trying to figure out why a used car lot had 5 new maro's, and everrett didnt have one while I was on leave in july and beginning of august. I was like wtf this is booshit, but the 92-94 was the only years they used the lt5 it was the only dual overhead cam v8 chevy ever made, hence if you read the history of why they decided to go with the old school pushrod v8, instead of the dual overhead cam. Was mostly because the throttle response. The higher ups in gm drove two different corvettes one with the lt5 and I believe the ls1 if im not correct. But they liked the ls1 with 345 horsepower, over the 405 horsepower zr1.

    All the years of c4 zr1 had the lt5, even the late 80s through 91 models. The lt5 is an amazing engine, it just has a few issues the pushrod engines didnt.

    Then your grandpa has a rare testing zr1, only 100 or so were made in 89 for testing purposes and in 90 the number was bumped to 2000 production cars per year.

    What i thought was cool was the valet key feature, there was a hidden switch under the radio that limited teh zr1 to 200hp in normal mode. When you wanted to get on it you would then switch it to the 375hp mode.

    last I read about the lt5's was they were 405 at the flywheel. And they tested them in the 89's, but they only were run threw up to 94 I was also told. But the specs I found on the net might have been wrong so.

    89 through 91 or 92 was 375 crank, then the heads and some valve train was upgraded in the later years of c4 zr1s and it made 405hp. And yeah they stopped making the c4 zr1 in 94 or 95, cant remember. I was just saying the 89-94 zr1 all used the lt5. But it was better in the later years as was the suspension.
