Identifying a First Generation Z28:
From the looks of the emails we get on this subject we can sum it up by saying the best place to start to try to verify a first gen Z28 is by checking the engine codes and dates. We hope more people read this before buying a Camaro not after buying that so called Z28. All had a 302 cubic inch engine with a suffix code MO or MP in '67, MI or MO in '68 and DZ in '69. To get the 302 engine Chevy took a 283 crank and put it in a 327 block. Some people say Chevy put the crank in a 350 block but since 1967 was the first year for 350's and 302's and both used the 327 block it is better to say they used a 327 block. A 302, 327 and 350 block are exactly the same except for the number of main bolts which would depend on the application and the year. The 1969 302's had 4 bolt mains. The 1967 and 1968 302's did not have 4 bolt mains. They were in fact 2 bolt main blocks used in '67 and '68 302's. In 1967 they are small journal blocks and in '68 and '69 they went to large journals. The reason for the Z28 was to compete in SCCA Trans-Am Challenge Series. The engine requirements to race in SCCA was limited to 305 cubic inches. All had 4 speed Muncie manual transmissions. All had power front disc brakes at least. All had 12 bolt rear ends but didn't have to be posi. None had A/C. None were factory convertibles except one beautiful '68 Z28 was a convertible which was made for the head of Chevrolet at the time (Pete Estes) and if you own it email us a picture and all the info you can please! Just remember badges do not a Camaro Z28 make.



I got this from Camaro Z28. There was no 350's in an orginial Z

Z24 FTW!!

What I'd love to see is a benchmark V6 model that is more than just a trim package. Have it be a formidable option to its V8 brethren and have it be the destroyer of the 370Z, G70 and the Genesis and even V6 Mustang. I'd still like to see the NA V6 up around 350 HP stock. I'd like to see the FI V6 sportin around 480-520RWHP with M3-Boxster- like handling and braking. That to me has more appeal than the SS or even the ZL-1.

Heck SIXJAK did you just pull that straight outta my brain? lol

I agree very much!

I will be dissapointed if they release a TT V6 with only 400HP or so, now that we know how super easy with low amounts of boost is is to get to that number (I'm talking crank HP) Now, I can see them releasing a lower HP TTV6 for other vehicles, but a TTV6 in a Camaro should be at least as powerful and fast as the SS.

I'm telling ya, I know its all smoke and dreams at this point, but the more I think about the next Gen Camaro on a lightweight ATS-like Alpha platform the more giddy I get. I can't imagine how fun these cars would be if they were just a smidge smaller (not much!!) and about 3 or 400 lbs lighter.

LOL Just saw this. Yeah it would be cool. If fuel gets to 4.00 + a gallon I think GM and a lot of guys addicted to 8 cylinders will start rethinking things. Don't get me wrong I'd live to see fuel drop to .99 a gallon and see GM still be motivated to produce some cool six banger stuff. I just love the sounds they make-they seem so anti establishment-counter culture-outside the box to me.

Historically and traditionally 8 cylinder Camaros were always THE performance option and the 6 cylinder Camaro was just the economy option for the broke or for the poseur or for daddies and husbands to buy for their girls and that's a tradition I don't mind seeing going the way of the doe doe bird.

The high revving DOHC LLT is a hoot to drive and it would be sick if it put 450-500RWHP to the pavement. With that you could mess with just about anybody.
