Let Them Build it and They Will Come
The Engine Build Experience (option PBC) comes with a suggested retail price of $5,800. The extra cost allows the owner to assemble, under the close guidance of the regular assembly technicians, their own Z06 or ZR1 engine. After assembly, a personalized plate with the customer's name is placed next to the signature nameplate of the full time assembly tech. The price includes lodging but not transportation to the Wixom, MI PBC (Performance Build Center), where the Z06 and ZR1 engines are built, although a Chevrolet concierge will assist with travel and other arrangements. While it takes about four hours for the production engine builder to create a LS7 or LS9 engine, the customer participation in the Engine Build Experience is estimated to take six to eight hours. The program is possible because of the hand built nature of the Z06 and ZR1 engines. Engine Build Experience engines are covered by Chevrolet's five year / 100,000-mile transferable powertrain warranty.
