Now flame away for suggesting no V8 in the Z28.
only flame I can say is why the focus on the 3.6 TT? there are many engines in the generals arsenal that they could through at the car. including the new engine that will debut in the base v8 c7 vette. or heck why not a TT 4 cylinder? the C7 will be out next year. It's suppose to get a DI V8. and may also get that TT v6 you are talking about. I could see the SS getting the v6 TT and then them sliding the Z28 in with the V-8 while keeping the ZL1 as king.
