So how much would a Z-28 LS9 cost $58,000 to $65,000... that would be out of my price range!!

The cost to actually put the LS9 in a Camaro would easily eclipse the price of the Camaro itself. It would be cool, but it's just not practical. The best application in my opinion for this motor is in the Factory Five GTM. It is already based on the Corvette drivetrain and this would propel it into the record books.

This is some serious shit... You think putting 2 heavy dudes in the back seats and having that mamoth on would make the Camaro pull a wheely? LOL

It would be nice if they could take into consideration the possibility of "upgrading" an SS with an LS9. 20K is no small sum, but a possible "discount" by taking back the installed engine for an X amount will probably be more than enough for some people. Actually... maybe most of the SS owners?

On a side note... If I remember correctly, once upon a time there were statements from big heads in GM that "the Corvette engine would never go in a Camaro". We may not get a Camaro with this pre-installed these days, but offering a complete package as an upgrade is for sure a step in the right direction. And since no one ever said that "we will NEVER build a Z28", but instead they said "if we do build one we will make sure the name will deliver what is supposed to deliver", having already the LS9 as an "option" (for any car) and giving it a year+ of Camaro sales... who knows...

Ok, this may be a dumb question to some but any major work I've done to cars has been on carbureted motors. It says you need an ECU, but I'm assuming that that's based on the fact that it doesn't come with one. Will you be able to re-configure the existing ECU in the Camaro or other similar Chevy V8 cars to run this?

My dads friend has a 2007 jeep wrangler and put a 505 hp viper engine in it, lifted it and got a bunch of other stuff done for 60K. So im guessing that engine would be pretty expensive... at the least 20K maybe 30K. Way to much for me... most people would still just see it as a camaro.

That's the best part of it all! You'd be the perfect sleeper. Most people think that the Camaro is going to perform well enough to beat a Challenger, but it won't be smacking Ferraris. One day, you'll post single digits in the quarter mile, and the ones who underestimate you will brown their pants.

It's just a Camaro with the heartbeat of the LS9.

Especially with well done electronic cutouts... give it a less aggressive rumble during staging, and right when you get up to the line open those bad boys up and let the roar of the LS9 shake the stands...
