Um, the need HAS arisen! Just ask anyone here!
I think Chevy DOES need to put a 500+hp engine in the new Camaro just to keep pace with Ford and Dodge...
The new Mustang GT (2009) will probably output 350-375hp
The new Challenger will put out 435-450hp
The new Camaro HAS to put out something competative, and the LS7 is a ready-made, proven solution!
That being said, I WOULD shell out some serious $$$ for a supercharged LS7 (even if it meant eating RAMEN noodles for a year or so)... its just going to be SO worth it!
