IMHO - if you're starting with a car that is only a few ticks slower than LT1 cars were from the days of yore, I don't feel that's a bad thing one bit. It should be all about what you want, and not what others think. Obviously, that plays a little role (otherwise - why do many people spend so much time and money going faster and looking better ) but if you like how the car felt, and it fits your needs, then go for it, IMHO. If you have no intention on having a little safe fun at the occational stoplight, and don't plan on going to a track, and just want a great car that runs really good, then get the V6. It's less expensive and you can equip it, trim-wise, with everything the SS has.

IMHO - get what's going to fit you, and no one else. It's your $$$.
