Yeah. My feeling is the ls7 crate is overpriced. Look at the 5.0 coyote engine. It is Dohc and has more parts, but is far cheaper.

My guess is $42-44k for a 1SS.

I doubt they would prove it above the ZL1 but it could be in line with the marketing "take your pick"

Sorry I meant "price it" and I am of the same opinion as you. I would definitely think of trading mine in as well

I would think 525-530. Think about the LT1 vs LS3 it is said to be 450 hp, about 20 more then the LS3.

I am conflicted, as a Z06 owner I love the LS7 and my Z, but part fo the reason I love it is the LS7 was always only offered in the Z06. Now they offer it in the 427 convertible and that has diluted the breed a bit. Now with it appearing in the camaro not quite as special.

Although, by the time this car appears, I will be looking to pick up a new DD and this would compliment the Z perfectly.

I will say a lighter, track ready ZL1 would be cool.

Guys, with all the excitement about the engine....

Couldn't this be like the C6 427... The swansong of the current Camaro generation?

OK, I know, I'll get my coat...

No stock for stock the LS7 will not, however, it will feel different because of its displacement.
