Doing my best Obi Wan "this is not the 427 you're looking for". You want the LSX.
look i was there. i remember... and I know numbers matching Z28's. i know exactly what they are meant for. i also know the name was used and a 350 was put in them later. (why, i have no idea).
this is a fauxe Z28. you wanna talk historical. ok, let's...
z28 should be LIGHT, have a 5 liter engine with 400hp. no frills, no nav, no 427, no irs, none of this stuff the fauxe Z28 is gonna hve.
chevrolet built a 427 hammer to bludgeon a 5 liter BOSS. just, there is no boss anymore.
call it a 427 camaro, and call it quits.the new car is NOT a Z28....in the original iteration.
you bring up the original intent, not me. the 69 427 camaros were epic.

1) The Z/28 was built to run in Trans Am ROAD racing
2) The Camaro was a pony car, not a muscle car. Now that it weighs 2 tons, it doesn't fit the pony car class.
3) Buy an SS and drop in a 427.
I get it, you clearly don't. This is the Z/28 forum. If you don't like the Z/28, why post here?
so, if i have a different opinion that is not lock step , you have a problem? ive been on C5 long enough to remember all of the fanboishness when the SS was introduced.
i have a right to display disappointment in being left out. i wanted a DAG-blamed 427 factory camaro i can never get. yes im on the right forum to post an opinion about the 2014 Z28. all of my posts are relevant just not ones you personally like.
