Unless something has drastically changed, fbodfather and those with him told me there would be no LS7 5th gen. The only way I see it as a possibility would be a LS7 option for a COPO car.

That can't be right can it?

Could the LS7 equipped Camaro be anything other than a Z28?
I'm sure many of us here know that the Z28 was originally a trim, the RPO being Z28. I think the last year for that was 1974. There was no Z28 for 75/76, then the 1977 1/2 Z28 cam out as a model, not a trim (RPO). I'm pretty sure this is correct.

From what I understand, the LS4 is slower.
That's an understatement. the LS4 is the sideways front wheel drive V8 in the SS Impala. 5.3 303 HP

Didn't realize so many people on this forum are just now hearing about what an LS7 IS!!!!!

Oh buddy...I WOULD trade my very well loved Camaro for that exact combo right there. Time to start saving for the 2014 MY Camaro.

It's a no no. But heads, cam, headers, intake can get you 550 - 600 RWHP (Mainly depending on the cam). Just need to watch out for the valve guide issues. I'm putting aftermarket heads w/ solid SS exhaust valves on mine this winter.

A 1LE + LS7 would be one bad ass Camaro.

My question is what do you guys think the cost will be for one? I'd imagine it'll be close 50k.

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"

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.

Fen, have you seen these vin cards before? Have they ever been used as a source for new information before? I'm thinking this wasn't a "leak" but rather a calculated release of information by GM themselves.
