...all this good stuff is gonna keep us busy here for some time. Maybe the end result of this information will be at the Detroit Auto Show next month as one of the big releases scheduled.

I have a feeling the LS7 is for the COPO Camaro. Although a Z28 would be awesome.

Quote:
Highlights of the new COPO Camaro program include:

A sequenced build number matched to the engine but sold without a Vehicle Identification Number and cannot be registered for highway use
Three racing-class engine are available, including a naturally aspirated 427 (7.0L) and two supercharged 327 (5.3L) V-8 engines
Engine assembly at GM’s Performance Build Center, where the buyer can opt to participate in the engine assembly similar to Chevrolet’s Corvette Engine Build Experience and the Chevrolet Performance Build Your Own Crate Engine programs
Engines pairing with a Powerglide automatic transmission designed for drag racing
Five colors: Flat Black, Summit White, Victory Red, Silver Ice Metallic and Ashen Gray Metallic
A COPO graphics package similar to the one introduced on the concept vehicle available in Metallic White, Semi-Gloss Black, Inferno Orange Metallic and Chevy Racing Blue
Pricing starting at $89,000
A special collector’s package offering the purchase of all three engines with the COPO Camaro – including one installed in the car at delivery – with each engine serial number matched to the car

The COPO 427 is not the LS7. It's an iron block LSX variety.

COPO doesn't have a VIN or VIN card that applies to it.

Why? Ever see the price of anything with an LS7?

You got a great car, great engine, at a quite reasonable price with an LS3 ss. I bought a few Z06's back in the C5 day. Awesome car, great LS6 engine.... then the C6 Z06 came out with the Ls7 and the price shot through the roof. No more Z06s for me after that.

I wish they'd do a 427, wet sump, non titanium, cam'd with a tq range for the heavier Camaro, priced below the ZL1. Without the titanium, the rev limit would have to come down a bit, but for an affordable price - I'd love a 427 Camaro.

I'd consider trading my LS3 for an LS7 powered Camaro
One small request... can they put some 427 badges on it. I think that would be pretty cool

Te COPO is not a production car. It is a crate motor that ships in a Camaro.

I love how I posted a thread about this about 2-3 months ago and everyone called me a liar and said I didn't know what I was talking about.

I have to agree. It's been said that the 427 will no longer be offered in the corvette after 2013. If this is the case, there is no way it would be offered in the camaro.

Interesting though.

These motors are still used in a lot of race cars. Just because the vette doesn't have it doesn't mean it won't be in a camaro. If anything we have seen a lot of x vette motors in camaros. Lt4?
