    c5 engine timeline?

    could somebody walk me through what engines came in when? thinking about buying a c5 and the only thing i got [i think ] is the ls1 ran from from 97-01, then it was the ls2.[?] what about the z06 also. i dont know if i'll be looking as high as 04, but that depends what kind of deals are around.

    Ls1 was 97-04 on base vette. the c5 z06 has the ls6 405hp.
    C6 vette started in 05, base model had the ls2 and the z06 had the ls7. I beleive the 08+ base model vetts now use the ls3 and the z06 has the ls7 and zr1 has the ls9.

    I believe the 1999-00 was the FRC timeline. Fixed Roof Coupe. Got the look of the Z06 with the top, but not the price or LS6.

    an FRC would be a prize but just in preliminary looking around thats not an easy thing to find. i might end up with a ZO6, or a drop top, but its too early to tell.

    I'd like the performance advantage of the Z06, but the look of the regular coupe.

    everybody has their personal preference. i like the look and the trunk of the FRC and vert [with the top up], but i dont need more performance than the basic car. now when i drive a Z06, i'll probably change that tune though.

    Im exactly the same way. i like the frc and actually think the convertible with the roof up is dam sexy as hell. If I get a newer gen (from a c4) it will definitely be an 01 -04 vert.

    don't forget that the first year Z06 had 385hp not 405hp
