Any chance the z28 would get a high revving 5.5 DI V8 from the c7 vette?

i know i am trying to read between the lines (i watched the whole 'chat' live), but i think they might have a 302 planned for the z28. kind of taking it back to its roots, as it were.

No comment on the Z28 then? The Z28 was brought out to battle the Boss Mustang back in the Trans Am days.

KentWatkins.. I think it is very interesting to note that history of the Z28 and its comparison to Boss 302...

That would be fine with me. I also hope that translates into a more affordable performance package.

Me too. I'm sure they didn't read all of them though.

And to think, they could have answered my tire question.

I see some of the usual historical mis-information made it into the chat yesterday:
"[Comment From KentWatkins KentWatkins: ]
No comment on the Z28 then? The Z28 was brought out to battle the Boss Mustang back in the Trans Am days."

When the Z/28 was brought out there was no Boss 302, Ford was still racing the 289cid engine. Then Ford came out with their Tunnel Port 302 Trans Am engine for the '68 Trans Am season and it was a failure. It was then that the Boss 302 was brought out.

My local tuner has gotten over 600rwhp from the CTS-V's he's worked on from those exact mods.

+oo

Side thought: Id be happy with a 330hp 5.3L (roughly 327) L33 aluminum truck motor in a 1LE esque stripper car on aluminum18s if they priced it under the SS. A starter v8 for those who like to mod but have a smaller budget and dont need 500hp but hate how the 6s sound.

Im sure anything new will be well above the SS benchmark though. Slam away.

Exposed carbon fiber hood insert

Maddmark54

My intial order accepted January 5th was with the exposed carbon fiber hood insert. 2 1/2 weeks went by and my dealership was told they were on constraint and if I wanted the car, I would have to change my order to the flat black. I contacted Chevy, recieved a case number, and was contacted by phone. The first rep assigned had no power to do anything and I was assigned a district rep. This rep initialy told me she looked forward to working with me. She told me she would call me back after investigating. When she called back, she told me I can take the car the way it is, or give up my allocation. ( I put a deposit down 2 1/2 years ago) I asked her what happened to working with me? I explained that "the carbon fiber insert has a projected price of over 2000.00 dollars and that it it's unfair that I should have to pay any more than the 600.00 option price, on an option that was initially accepted by the factory. It's not my fault that Chevy has a problem with their supplier. All I ask is for you guys to be fair with me." I had thought that Chevy would do something to work with me, but so far, no solution, no working with me, no nothing. They sell #1, #2, and number 69 to Hendricks, but they can't make good on this? I guess the little guy doesn't matter.
