If the LS7 car is a reality and in the 40's I would jump on it, because it's always what I wanted. I don't think the 1LE guys are getting shafted, because it's an awesome package added to the SS. It's all about price points, you can almost always get your current car up to the performance level of the next step up for less than the extra cost, so I wouldn't worry about it.
