I guess I didn't realize the rear rotors were that large. I was thinking they were in the 13" range.

I think it is highly likely that we will for two reasons. 1) v6 was updated in 2012 and v8 update is long overdue. This is a great way to keep the line up fresh for 2014 and 2015. New engine every two years after introduction. 2) Hard to see GM passing up on fuel economy improvements with the new CAFE standard.

Yea I feel the same way and I believe Al recently was quoted saying we should expect something soon to refresh it or keep the Gen5 new. Also, he's said they're not done with this generation.

2013 corvette production is only 9 months long. Production ends February 2013 and the plant will be down for a few months. It's possible the 2014 Camaro could get DI, but the it would be strange for GM to have an all new engine in 3 cat/truck lines right off the bat.
But it is a different world and the new fuel economy standards will really be in full effect for 2016.

I would love to see the new v-8s for the 2014 model year but I'm thinking either 2015 or they will wait till the sixth gen. I don't think they would bother with all the testing costs to only put it in a fifth gen for 1 or 2 model years. The other side of the coin is that they can recoup the development costs of the gen V V-8s themselves by putting them in as many models as possible as soon as possible. Mentioning CAFE is a good point I just hope the fuel economy improvement is substantial. The ATS EPA ratings were just realeased and are not very impressive. 22/33 for the base NA 4 cylinder. The turbo 4 and V-6 are within a few points city and highway if I remember right.

How much lighter are your 19" forgestars than the forged 20s?

Wheels are pretty close in weight, maybe 1/2 a pound, it's the tires that make the difference, the 20" tires add 3-5lbs more weight per corner depending on the sizes/brands.

Yeah, I put 19s on my GTO and fitted re11s and then found out they were 3-4 lbs heavier than michelins or just about everything else. Still an awesome tire. Going back to 18s to get about 7 lbs of weight off and gain some ride quality.
