    Correct, and the c5 z06 has a more agressivly geared tranny. So if that guys uncles 01 vette is a z06 then yes the gearing is a little different thanks to the tranny though.

    Does anyone know the fastest time for an ls1 vette. Fastest f body was 12.8 at 108. So the Vette must be mid 12's right?

    Yah, the first 3 gears of the M12 are lower in the Z06. Makes the 3.42s feel approximately like 3.90s... Ask me how I know this...
