I love you

Punk_rider 09-03-2008 03:32 PM

I may be stupid (highly possible) but I don't find the article

radz28 09-03-2008 03:33 PM

What am I missing? I don't see "Supercharged Z28 Saved"...

13F20 09-03-2008 03:35 PM

one thing I did not write. It is saying the car may not come out till 2010 so chances are is might be 2011 or 2012. Nothing set in stone yet fellas.

Camaro_Corvette 09-03-2008 03:35 PM

Where does it say LS9???I know it says it at the top of the page but it says nothing else about it.

radz28 09-03-2008 03:36 PM

OH, I just typed it into search and found it. It's an older article, but nice to see it again. These were one of the first to report it was dead though...

Regardless, thanks for the info'. If and when you come across more, please post up ;)

13F20 09-03-2008 03:37 PM

Ok guys. Do this.
Google: chevrolete LS9 Crate Engine
Look for " The LS9 Z28 has been Temporarily saved- Super chevy Magazine.

Should be the first sellection.

Camaro_Corvette 09-03-2008 03:39 PM

These articles should have dates of when they are written! Always!

Oh...and a BS meter that way we can gauge whether or not it could be true, or is possible BS.:D :D

I didn't see that, however, if you just type "Supercharged Z28 Saved" the article link should come up :thumbsup:

It says the Z28 is still alive, but it doesn't say the supercharged Z28 is still alive. I heard from a little birdie...that the supercharged one IS dead...but....the LS7 is still hanging on.

:word: There is no evidence of a supercharger at all.

I am willing to believe that Super Chevy has a well-placed source in GM. It is a long-term specialty magazine featuring only one make with an enthusiast audience. Unlike most magazines, I can believe Super Chevy's claims.

Keep the faith.

The_Stache 09-03-2008 04:52 PM

LS9... keep dreaming not going to happen..

Z28.. who knows and really i could care less.. the SS is fine enough for me..

GTAHVIT 09-03-2008 04:53 PM

The LS7 is going away. GM has publicly said it won't be produced after this year.

LS8, LSA, LS3 with hot cam.... Hmmmmmm.

As good as this news is... may possibly might be...

I'm waiting for GM to say it officially. Then I will :woot:

fbodfather 09-03-2008 04:56 PM

Not true.

Sorry.


CAFE is making it VERY HARD to justify what we'd planned.

You might want to write to your elected officials and tell 'em what you think about CAFE........

I can totally agree with you on this. I just get hung-up on my previous post and what they first reported. Regardless, they've been around a long time, and if anyone had a reliable source within GM, I would think it would be them or CHP. I like both mags' so I'd be more willing to trust them than the rags' out there. JMHO.

X2 That's what I though.

Like diarmadhi said, LS9 - nah. I could see other options, but we have to wait. I need more than 420+ horse :D

As much as I'd like to do that, I don't think that's going to do a bit of good. Liberals in congress are all convinced that the public wants fuel efficient eco-boxes. They'll consider our group a minority. It's a shame. Government should have no place to regulate a market driven industry like this. Safety is one thing, but something like this; heck no! If people want fuel efficient cars, it would be in GM's best interest to supply these cars to meet demand. However I don't think they should be punished when they want to build a low volume niche car such as this. Odds are you're not going to see 100,000 Z-28 units sold a year.

I've never been so happy and then so sick to my stomach in one thread in my life....


A definitive answer sure would be nice....

MajorTom 09-03-2008 05:51 PM

It seemed more logical to me for them to possibly put an LSA into it. It'd be great to see a GT500 fighter. Or killer in this case. But I couldn't afford it anyway.

I can look at this in a couple of ways.

1. that the z28 is dead.
2. That the supercharged z28 is dead. and plan B could be implemented


I'm going to pray it's the second one.


and let me say plan B could be just about anything. my personal fav is

race tuned suspension with double adjustable shocks
hot cam in the ls3.
lighter materials used through out.


but oh well all I can do is write my congressman and keep the faith.
