Yup. Traded a Grand Sport Corvette for a 6.4 P-stroke.

AND NO REGRETS!!! Traded my car for an 09 F350 4x4. Love this thing. All the ammenities I was used to@1/3 the price! I already have an H&S Mini(Race) in route and a DPF/CAT "go byebye" pipe on order. Im really likin this truck. This is my 2nd P-Stroke, coming from Cummins and AGAIN, I think I made the right choice. Just gettin reaquainted as Ive been absent about 2yrs.

If it was me I would go for a C6 Z as they are flat out nasty with a cam, intake, full exhaust, and a tune! since I got rid of my S/C cobra thats what I want to replace it with.

And to the OP welcome back! I miss my tuned 6.4 power wise all the time but not the emissions BS that went along with it!

It was a C6 GS. I wanted a C6z but they are just to damn rich for my blood($45k for an 07 w/high miles or for an 11 w/next no miles?) and, the LS7 is a real crapshoot it seems so far as engine integrity. Most of that seems to be dependant on if they were AutoX'd. The dry sump system was inadequate and starved the engine. Thats is the theory at least. The LS3 in the GS is MORE than capable and responds well and safely to a S/C setup. Which was the plan initially. I just wound up needing to reduce some debt. Anyway. I had traded a C5z for the GS. The Z WAS quicker. But the GS was faster. And soooooo much nicer. No comparison.
