Something else to consider, the LS3 makes close to 500HP with a cam change, and headers. The LS7 makes 550 (probably underrated)...Even if a dealer discounts an install and buys back the LS3, it's still not good bang for the buck even at $5000 premium after LS3 buy-back. Having said that, that LS7 is one seriously cool motor.
(edit) I take that back...that's NOT BAD bang for the buck but it will void your drivetrain warrantee, like most engine performance part installs.

Maybe if someone like Tom Henry was willing to do a LS7 swap for about the same price as an add-on supercharger it might sell very well.

I'd have to see it in person, but I prefer the chops that show it blacked out in a thinner strip. Are the cogs turning Tag???

The show just started, there should be alot of info released over the next few days. If you have questions ask them, maybe someone at SEMA will read it and answer...Or get an answer. Patience is a virtue so they say.

The only thing I would suggest is having the V6 front end on this car if the intent was to pay tribute to a '69 COPO Camaro. The original cars had the exterior of a non performance model but the drivetrain of an animal.

I agree. Maybe oversize steelies also with hubcaps to cover the 6 piston calipers and oversize rotors

I don't care for the black hood, either. Looks like they forgot to paint it.

Paint that hood red like the rest of the car and you have a winner!

^^ the hurst shifter is pure sex. even tho the ball is black and not the classic white

i basicly love everything about this car. the color, the rims, the blacked out rear bumper, the hood is a 50/50 for me it adds character, the interior with red gauges is simple spectacular, the exhuast tips are perfect they fill in the holes so nicely, and the motor omg i just have 1 question WHY??? are u not doing this gm???

so their is like 95% of no chance that this camaro will be like the olden days that i can buy a camaro send it to the central office production order (COPO or in this case GMPP) and get it fitted with a aluminum 427 motor(ls7)? if its possible the ls7 camaro will be at my house no doubt about it. and i cant see this toping 60k of the cts-v as ones a luxary 4 door with a lsa while the camaro is a bare optioned camaro with a ls7 if lucky i can see a ls7 camaro reaching 50k. yes im still dreaming, please dont ruin that for me kthxbye

Look how small those gaps are between the body panels. GM sure has come a long way since my 87 Grand Am.

If the hood were actually "painted" black, it would look a WHOLE lot better imo..
I'm making my car like my sig anyway, but hmmm...an LS7? Now things are really heating up. Maybe I'll get an LS7

JohnnyCamaro told us a while ago that the shifter will come without a knob (unless this has since changed?). You can add your own, or use the standard knob that the 6M comes with.

I'm with you. These pics all look great...but, it's now time to sit down and make my final list of what I want to order. I'm hoping the rest of this week will provide some definitive answers on REAL product.

Is it a coincidence that the camaro is getting ready to be released AND GM released the 427 as a crate engine?! No its not sorry dont expect GM to release an LS7 in a camaro if you want one your going to have to buy and install the ls7 yourself! And if they do make an ls7 camaro Im going to be sending lots of hate mail to GM for not producing the 427 Silverado SS!
