1.6T is apparently going into Verano next year. I wasn't aware of that but...all right.

It'll permeate its way into more cars soon. Malibu and Equinox are both slated to receive it.

CTS and XTS are the first applications I believe. And it was one of the two choices for the ATS-V engine. The decision has been made, just nobody outside Engineering really knows (pretty sure it's the LF3).

the LS7 is a great engine, but it does have siamese cylinders. Does anyone know how it holds up to the LS3? I know stock it blows it away but how does the LS7 like boost?

It will probably be priced below the Zl1, by how much I don't know, may even be pretty close.

I've heard GM tried using it for forced induction and the engine blew up...

I just checked for price of new Crate LS7 is double the cost of the LS3, so add at least $8k on the price of a new Camaro....that's a lot of money for 80 more HP....

Ya, I mean I would love to have one, but the thing is, this is probably the perfect car for someone who will never modify it. It will no doubt perform great stock. Its probably a Z28 and it will be a 1LE with the LS7.

I'm thinking 1LE+LS7=Z28. Sounds good.

Agreed...theres a good reason we're all using LS3 blocks and actually did the first 429ci on a LS3 block.

The 7 is a good motor non the less and gladly I'll snatch one up.

I've heard from several different people around here and even on various forums that the LS7 & boost do not mix well...

You can make ~650rwhp and be pretty good. They are definitely more fragile than an ls3 and have head issues. I would avoid them unless you plan on dumping $3-4k into headwork/mods to keep them reliable. I rather have an ls3 with a blower than a ls7.
