Lets keep up. The answer: LS5.

5.5L. Direct Injection. New block design. New head design. More power. Better economy in the 450bhp vicinity for the entry level V8 of this design to be used in trucks and cars. AND HOPEFULLY DOHC so that changing cams could be like changing underwear. Cant tell if its a DOHC motor since its covered by the CAIs. Here is a picture of the motor in a C6R. Thanks again to corvette racing engineers for what looks to be another beast since their LS7 behemoth creation.

It has a name now?

The Gen V engines won't feature DOHC, based on the most recent rumors/info. And they scrapped the Northstar replacement program, too...

The had the LT series, then the LS series. Perhaps the first Gen V engine will be the LR1?

Well, its not the first time that gm used the LT and LS RPO codes for their engines till they wore them out. The original LT1 was factory rated the most powerful small block motor (eventhough i think the 302s in the first Z28's might have something to say about that) and in its second coming in the late 80s, through mid-late 90s, it didn't disapoint with either the LT1, LT4, or the rarest of gems, the LT5. and it seems that GM has always made the LS series engines the ones that strike terror on the "other" two companies. Just do your homework on the original LS5, LS6, and LS7. (You know that roar when its raining that society has named "thunder"??? Those are actually LS6s and LS7s talking to us from motor heaven) I vote for an LS5 name or, LT5!!!

My instincts tell me to wait...but I an getting impatient.
Same here...I decided to wait for the 2012 ZL1's to go on closeout...so that will be about 18 months from now. If I still haven't heard anything on the Z/28...then that will be the time to strike... (unless they announce significant improvements for the 2013 ZL1...in which case I'll wait 12 more months for those to go on closeout...and if they still haven't announced anything maybe it's just not coming ). The Camaro6 has some huge shoes to fill if its going to be as iconic as the 5th gen, so I really think the current Camaro is the car to own if you're a collector. It would simply be a tragedy for there to be no Z/28. But we know it's coming almost maybe certainly for sure.

THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME!!!
