Plus a pushrod valvetrain will almost certainly be lighter than a multi-cam/multivalve setup.
Maybe I am a bit biased but I love how flexiable my bolt on LS3 motor is in my 2008. Cuising on the highway in 6th at anything less than 80mph yields MPG between 29 and 31.
Oh BTW i'm 36 so I guess I'm really not an average corvette owner...
