They would be adding a lot of weight to the nose of the car with the LSA.
'reduce weight elsewhere' is a common call for this problem, but that adds up to dollars that people are unwilling to spend in today's economy.
If the LSA does really make it into a Camaro 2 years from now, look for the car to top 4100 pounds.
Man, that is quite a weight difference for the front. Current weight of the SS is what, 38XX lbs. Just this engine alone and whatever heavy duty parts they u/g on a Z28 from an SS. It doesn't sound like 4100+ lbs. would be out of the question. That thing will be a tank.
