Dont know how much its been discussed, but if the 08 LS3 vette is putting down 390rwhp. Id imagine at worse the new SS is going to be 370rwhp. Not to mention a few mods bringing it over 400rwhp

Bro the LS3 for the 2010 Camaro SS is putting out 422 rwhp, not 370 rwhp. Estmated to do 0-60 in 4.6sec.

actually, from what i know your both wrong.
the 422 is Bhp( base hors power) not rwhp wich goes strait to the tires.
the engine has its power rating(bhp), then theres the power that actually gets to the wheels(whp).

correct me if im wrong. but please prove with info, dont just state as fact.
thank you.

New render and details on the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SSPosted on 4-09-2008 by AndreyLeave your comment Category: Chevrolet, General Motors


Recently General Motors have put on their site the first official render and performance data of their top-spec SS (standing for Super Sport) version of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. And this version really deserves the Super Sport badge, being powered by a 6.2 litre V8 which comes with a choice of either manual or automatic transmission, both with 6 speeds.

Here start the differences, if you opt for the manual transmission, you’ll be getting the 6.2 litre V8 LS3 engine which can deliver up to 422 hp with 553 Nm of torque (or 408 lb.-ft.). Instead, if you choose an automatic gearbox, you’ll be gettin the 6.2 litre V8 L99 engine, which has, besides the standard LS3, GM’s Active Fuel Management system, which enables the engine to run only 4 cylinders on normal driving conditions, like in the city. This engine is capable of 400 hp and 535 Nm (395 lb.-ft.) of torque. Coupled with the automatic transmission, the SS will achieve an average of 23 mpg or 10.2 l/100km.

Sorry, as a Mustang owner I feel obligated to point out the fact that Ford still has the factory top dog amongst the big three. I really wish Chevy would just flat out tell us if there's going to be a Z/28 or whatnot, I'm getting impatient with all this "could be/might be" stuff.

Ill give ford credit.

they own the big dog from the factory.

That being said. modded car threads are worthless so Ford still gets big dog kudos.

But if you think the SS wont spank the GT500 after 3k worth of mods, none of which include a supercharger, than your in lala land.

520 hp 3800lbs vs. 500hp 3950lbs

That being said. Modded car threads are worthless. Ford still has the big dog here, so kudos to them.

430 is with the optioinal exhuast. 422 is NOT the rwhp number, it is definatley bhp. Agreeing with someones post above, I do believe the SS will have between 370-390rwhp STOCK. LS3 FTW
