"LS2, Shenanigans"

Have we been told otherwise by the fbodfather himself? Well yes, I think so. But again, I think they need to remove the ls2 reference from their literature.

Just my .02.
I don't remember if Scott ever said specifically "No LS2", but there are a few pretty bold clues that it won't be there.

Obviously, as Dragon said above, the LS2 is dead and out-dated. Why put something like that in the Camaro?

As stated, GM puts LS2 in every piece of mainstream literature about the Camaro. This is because every piece of mainstream literature about the Camaro is about the Concept Camaro. However, when referencing the production Camaro, they refuse to tell us anything. If there were going to be an LS2 in there, why would Scott refuse to tell us after all these fliers. It's just NOT going to happen.

Scott has told us to forget what we think we know about engines, so I try not to even bother guessing what's going to go in there. I'm sure I'll be pleasantly surprised:

The LS2 is 400 HP + they are not going to use the LS2 + they are going to replace the engine with something better =




P.S. Dragon, I think you need this smiley in your post above:

Personally, I look at a picture of this beautiful car and the future looks pretty bright!

I think all of this sudden doom and gloom can be attributed to the recent addition of depressing and aggressive smileys. People just want an excuse to .

Since we all know the LS3 is a better option than the LS2, they're just trying to hype up the LS2 so we all can act surprised when it's something better.

that says the ls2 is in the CONCEPT. it says nothign that the ls2 is going to be in the production version. the ls2 is in the past and the new performance motor is the ls3. so with that being said, the ls3 has more chance of being in the camaro than the ls2. and this is given the fact that they dont make another motor to go in other than the ls3.

as far as the v8 no one knows yet BUT the first guess would be the ls3 6.2 that the 08 vettes have .

True, he did state "forget everyting you have read about the power plant due to recent changes"... That could mien two things in my mind; more horse power or less horse power...
