Learning quickly that a Z06 (LS7) have another type of issue with the valves, and can also lead to major repairs when the "valves drop". Aie.

I will keep researching.

N54s are bullet proof compared to the Cayman's boxers and the LS7. But that weight.........

the only way is to find an engine that has problems which cost the least amount of cash to fix. then again you might have to deal with other issues even if you find a car with no engine issues... think bout subframe failures, brake system weakness, suspension links failing, weak differentials, etc.
