Modern turbo BMWs have been under rated due to an assumption of worse possible conditions. Not the case with their normally aspirated engines especially from over a decade ago.

28% stiff while at the same time being lighter is going to be a big gift to the racing teams that race the 5th generation Camaro. I know in World Challenge there are a number of teams running Camaros.
