That gm 260 hp engine is a turbo
im asking these questions because i am seriously considering an SS camaro as a daily driver for at least five years.
I like how you manage to not mention that the honda engine your talking about (I'm assuming it's the 237hp engine in the S2000) gets 25% worse gas millage while having one hundred less lbs of torque!!!! and 23 less hp...
(when comparing it to the turbo charged I4 found in the colbalt ss)
each engine is engineered differently, i'd rather have more gass millage, more hp, much more tq and a turbo then to have the pride (?) of knowing my engine is mediocre and NA....
the ls3 is a hell of a motor... it's base wouldn't be used in the ls9 if it wasn't. go educate yourself, then be impressed. "car person" hah.
