2010 Camaro engine bay showing DI 3.6L V6 LLT engine ?

You decide.... I think yes!!

First engine bay photos.
Also featured on homepage.

CLUES:
-- "LLT" letters on some hoses indicate GM's LLT engine (the direct-injection 3.6L V6)
-- throttle-body size / shape and bolts holding it on
-- three fluid reservoirs in the same locations

so does this mean the v6 is not going to be direct injection?

Sphinx002 05-22-2008 11:18 AM

I'd say the engine cover and exhaust says nothing about DI, only that it is the 3.6L.

I believe with 99% certainty that that engine IS the Direct Injected V6:

Note the two main similarities:
1: the hump at the rear of the intake manifold,
2: and the vacuum tube going into the manifold.

:bow: Direct Injection :drool:

woah, didnt notice that, badass.

Thats the answer I was waiting for.

But damn, where are all these pics comming from.

Sphinx002 05-22-2008 11:51 AM

Does the non DI have the vacuum hose (can't tell with the covers on)? The hump...now that is something I missed. By George, I think you are right.

Captain Awesome 05-22-2008 11:54 AM

Another thing to look for is the Throttle-Body size and shape and the bolts holding it on. Also the three fluid reservoirs are in the same locations. Lots of little cues. Including the servo-looking mechanism on the side of the throttle body!

Hower, one unrelated thing that's cool to see is that the hood is NOT supported by a prop-rod! Cool! I like that! Prop-rods scream "cheap" to me!

AirGoya 05-22-2008 11:56 AM

Never thought i would be so excited about a hump on top of the engine.
I do think it is the DI 3.6 not only because of that but the disciples wouldn't have stressed the performance of the V6 if it wasn't around 300hp.

Captain Awesome 05-22-2008 12:01 PM

What are the chances they will put a nice cover on the Camaro's V6 like that?

ToneyTone 05-22-2008 12:09 PM

I hope this photo wasn't suppose to get out because there is a reflection of a face in the car.

radz28 05-22-2008 12:16 PM

That looks like DI to me - look at the intake casting flash and TB. Looks very encouraging :D

Supermans 05-22-2008 12:24 PM

That is a very shiny silver camaro color that we have not seen. This could be a final production vehice shot... The first one seen :)

Captain Awesome 05-22-2008 12:31 PM

Looks black to me.

Awesome, great pic....Engine bay seems to not be too cramped, at least for the V6..I also don't see a spot for the battery, so it might be in the trunk...yay

It's Black:thumbsup:

Dave McFly 05-22-2008 12:42 PM

one thing i see under the hood that i like is the positive + battery terminal to jump the battery instead of the battery which means that the battery is in the trunk like it is in the G8, i love it!

:thumbsup:

So, in the germany vid alot of folks were saying that the car with the small wheel/tires was still a V-8 because of the exaust sound. I wonder if them folks were fooled by a V-6. Interesting.

My bad ;) I was only looking at the pic of the engine in hood where you can see the reflection. The other pictures didn't show up the first time..lol.. Just look at the top pic and you'll see that it is hard to make out the color, and if you had to guess, you probably would guess a greyish color..

I figured the G8 engine would make its way into the V6 Camaro..

CBR9Seadoo 05-22-2008 01:20 PM

I guess we know that the scoop is not functional, at least on this car.

Nexus6 05-22-2008 01:39 PM

i thought the engine bay would be bigger on these,still not as bad as the 4th gens though.

I think the V6 is a pretty large engine (outside dimensions). It may be deceptive.

AH17708 05-22-2008 02:21 PM

Smoking!
 
Its looking like Chevy will be retaking the lead!

fad1 05-22-2008 02:36 PM

Today, Success is scored with Camaro, Tomorrow GM again takes the leader for best cars and leaves Toyota in the dust. THIS CAR IS SICKKKKK ! Good job GM.
