I am planning on selling my 2010 SS for the 1LE. Luckily I just have basic boltons and coilovers.

Well for me personally it is. I mean, yes I would LOVE a Camaro with an LS7, but knowing how much more expensive that engine is I'm good with the LS3. A bit surprised there is no HP bump with the dual mode exhaust but hey, if the car is fast and fun to drive I'm in. I just have to change some cosmetic things to make it MINE but yes this is without a doubt the Camaro for ME.

An LS7 would be absolutely awesome but it isn't going to cost under $40k. I'm content with bolt-ons and lightweight flywheel for putting more power to the ground and a cam would be really great addition.

After driving a V-6 fourth gen for the past ten years I think 426HP will be enough for me for awhile. I won't do many performance mods until shes paid off. I also have a feeling I'll be spending my mod money on tires.

With the dual mode exhaust and deletion of a power steering pump/pulley from the 10-12 cars I know there is a HP bump....GM just isn't going to make any claims about it....Ford would have been all over it(flame-suit on)

Motor Trend ran 12.7 @ 111.8. I think that is the fastest magazine LS3 time to date. I wonder if the new gearing requires a shift to 4th in the quarter, or if the 1LE can run 112 in third.

With the lower gearing I think not, so that is a good time.

1LE is best bang for the buck and easy on the eyes.
