    Z06 from FRC????

    Is there any for sure way to know that a Z06 is really what the guy or dealer says it is. I only ask becuase you can buy the badges and the brake ducts and the wheels and make it look like a Z06 but it would have the extra value or HP. Is there any #'s or letters in the VIN# to look for?

    also check the gauges Z06's have a checkerboard pattern and is lit up by black lights slightly visible at an angle by sitting in the passenger seat

    also it'll have Z06 stitched into the seats

    and it'll have electronic cutout/butterfly thingys on the exhaust (if it's factory) so it'll get noticably louder at a certain RPM when revved up

    plus it has a stock titanium cat-back unlike any other production vette

    yea they do have the butterfly

    the procharged 02 z06 i drove (buddy owns a dealership) had them can't remember what RPM's they opened at but yea they were definately there

    yea the gauges will say Z06 too and the MPH and RPM numbers are written in a different font....kinda italics shaped but not really
