I have my doubts with a 5.5L engine at 9000 RPM. Those cylinders would need a massive bore to keep the stroke short. Not to mention the challenges that flat plane crank brings.

I'm gonna take a guess and say it's closer to 8k than 9.

It's practically the same displacement per cylinder as a GT3 4.0L. Ford's Voodoo was 5.2L with an 8,250 redline and was saddled with all sorts of compromises like a single sided intake and didn't have direct injection. I'm betting the redline is closer to 9k if not all the way there. And FPS will always rev higher, that's their very purpose.

I don't really care either way it goes. I'll never be a customer of the C8/Z06 regardless. I just think 5.5L V8 at 9k RPM on a budget conscious street car is wishful thinking.

If they pull it off, great and good on GM. I'm just making a prediction just like anyone else. I'm sure it'll sound great regardless.

Although it'll be interesting to see if it's accepted by the same demographic normally buying corvettes, or if it'll be targeting different customers looking for a budget Ferrari. I have already spoken with a few Corvette enthusiasts about this and they're not really sold on the flat plane crank sound. But in all fairness they're not really crazy about the C8 to begin with, myself included. I'm a little more open to change though. The C7 GS was probably my favorite vette though in all honesty.

It has been said by GM that C8 customers are wealthier than C7 buyers (average median income was higher by $76,000 compared to that of C7) and that the car overall has been reaching a new clientele, I wouldn't be surprised if the Z06 were to as well.
