Chevrolet announced in early September that it plans to bring back its "Build Your Own Engine" program for the Corvette Z06 starting in the second quarter of 2023.
The program, which allows buyers to come into the factory and help workers assemble the engine before it goes into their car, will only be available for Corvettes utilizing the LT6 powertrain, which, for now, only means the Z06.
"This is a real challenge for us because this is such a new engine and it's much more complex than what we've ever done in the past," plant director Kai Spande said at a 28th-anniversary celebration for the Corvette Museum, recorded by Corvette Blogger.
"We've done some things that I think will be very much appreciated by those that build their engine," Spande continued.
Previous iterations of the Build Your Own Engine program meant buyers would join assembly-line workers to help assemble their motor. For 2023, though, the Bowling Green, Kentucky, plant has designed a specific area of the plant where participants will be able to help assemble their engine alongside professionals without having to go down the line.
The Build Your Own Engine program was a $5000 option in the past, according to Corvette Blogger. Considering all of the new accommodations the factory has made to add this option back to the floor, we're betting it's going to be a lot more expensive this time around.
