I've owned a 1999 Pontiac Firehawk T/A and a 1994 Z28, both with 6-speed manuals. I have to say, the torque difference feels huge between the older 4th gens and my '10 1LT/RS. I almost feel like if this 2010 had a 5-speed manual instead of a 6-speed manual it would feel more powerful. Something I hate to say.
Don't get me wrong, it's great fun to drive. And fast. Just doesn't have the *punch* that the older cars had. Honestly though, you shouldn't expect it to. Go out and test drive a 2007 infinity g35s and you will have a similar driving (not interior quality) experience to what you should expect from a 2010 V6.
