I don't think I'm quite forward-thinking enough to accept a significantly smaller engine in Z28; that may be my biggest hang-up.
but a DI engine might be a smaller DI engine but still an 8 count

I didn't want to say I was talking about any ideas of a TI-4 or even a TTV-6; sorry. Yeah - I'm not going to beesh too much about a smaller DI V8; let's not make it smaller than a 5-liter though

Okay, not smaller than a 4.9L (i.e. 302 ci). 5.7L sounds plenty good to me. LT-1, LT-1, LS1, LS6; shoot; can't go wrong with that one

Any comments Number 3?

That is my thinking and exactly why I'm doing the same. Hey - there's nothing wrong with discussion on sharing of thoughts

Amen to that! And I'll add that a DI 4.9L with a handling package would work just fine for me. LOL, I post alot about the "Z" but a lot has changed since I was a younger man buying my Z-28 in 1984...like the high price of the cars...I'll be lucky to eventually get a 1SS, add a CAI, an exhaust swap, and add Pedders suspension parts.

...unless GM gives me a cheaper 1LE option. Sorry, I just had to say it again!

I only tire from the posts when the people who post the most don't even own a Camaro yet...much less actaully want/buy a Z/28!

I have my car, supercharger and a few other goodies...there is little if any chance I could buy a Z/28...there is little chance most on this site who have a Camaro already would/could trade it/up for a Z/28.

I guess my point is...while there is a lot of talk here about the Z/28, I honestly wonder how many people here, on Camaro5, would actually buy one, could afford one, or would trade their current Camaro for one? Not many I don't think...it's like asking a kid what do you want in your chocolate...you're going to get answers, but not alot of eaters!

I hope it does eventually come out...I think heritage wise it's a good move. But, stick to the heritage of the Z/28 and make it an all around track type car. The SS is, was and always will be the higher hp of the two...the fastest in a straight line as well.

My opinion...bash away!

I selected all of the poll options because I do feel that there are plenty of threads for this sort of discussion and new ones should stop but I feel that they are useful for expressing Camaro5's collective interest in a particular product. I also feel that the idea of a Z28 is so specific that Z[insert performance badge] may be a better description when considering the high-performance history of the Camaro ZL1 as well as the race-inspired Z28.

This site has thousands of threads. If you don't like Z28 discussions, talk about something else. If you do want to talk about the Z28, use the search because there is likely an existing thread to discuss your thoughts. If you don't know what a Z28 is, please go away.

Many Threads & Polls evolve with new information. However, some have posted Polls that are very much like existing Polls.

I voted yes and no. I want it to stop ... but I'll voice my opinion anyway. lol.

Honestly though, doesn't it take you back to the good 'ole days of the site? Where there was nothing but speculation? And we couldn't agree on which car would have the most performance so we went with "base V8" and "top dog" in place of "SS" and "Z28"

good times

perhaps we should create a poll, asking if people like responding to new polls regarding the Z28
