May be a hood option where as the existing hood would still come on the a 'base' Z?

I have been heir lurk around here for some time now, and if the Z is a drivers version of the SS with an LSA under the hood it has an honest chance to catch back up to it's less portly adversary pre Alpha Camaro.

I like where this is going. I just hope they make it so the hardcore want the Z's and the people who want the comfy, pretty darn well performing car stick to the SS. If that is case, the sky is the limit with the Z
AMEN!

Thanks for the pics of the engine I realize they are still testing and I hope they take thier time to work out all the kinks.

I speculate that the different versions are testing different components.

I hope that it is a good cooling system (engine/brakes/etc.) for us deep south owners.

GM has to juggle with the Z though and that's one thing they are kind of in a pickle with.

They cannot make it outperform a Z06(which I don't think they will even come remotely close)

But it needs to be a legit player STOCK with the GT500(make it a drivers race pretty much) and make mincemeat of the 2011 GT.

They need to make it hardcore enough so the hardcore guys will go for it, and make it honestly better than a Corvette Coupe(at least in my opinion) but less than the Grand Sport.

There's a lot of marketing that has to go behind this because if they eff it up they will kill sales of another car.

you hit the nail on the head...

also pay attention to the hood "scoops" cause from what I see they look to be rear facing. More of a heat extractor hood than a hood scoop for fresh air..

Question

The Z28 has been hiding in plain sight for the longest time.
same shot same angle pretty much all the same cues are there...




now question is..are those 4 hood vents just to throw us off so we dont see the scoop? Maybe cut there so that it will still work since the cover might be directing airflow over the scoop and this is the best area to pick up air untill the black cover is taken off.

To me the Z28 and Bumblebee match up pretty well..with all things considered for movie vs. production car. Thay all match up.

It does look like they are reverse scoops but yo ucan see the front facing scoop also on the hood matches up with BB's hood very well.

The reason Bumble Bee looks like the Z28 is because it was the concept proposed for the Z28 design. Had the GM bail-out stuff not occurred, they had originally hoped to release the Z28 around the same time that Transformers 2 came out. Movie was to have been a preview of the Z28 model. Bumble Bee 2 nose shown is about 95% accurate.

I'd love to see that hood from the top ... should help with getting hot air out of the engine bay ... so far so good. I too would have liked to see a ls9 in there to fully compete w/ the GT500, but the LSA is still a nice strong engine

The 'scoops' are rear facing for heat extraction, not air inlet. The air flowing over the hood creates a low pressure area at the openings plus the air in the engine bay has a slight amount of pressurization due to the air coming in the grill. This draws hot underhood air out. Just look at the late model Shelby GT500 for a similar design - and it works very well.

Thanks for the updates.

The LSA engine IS correct, however, the horsepower will NOT be 556, that's all I can say.
Afterall, we want to exceed the GT500, not pace with it.
