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.

Welp, maybe I can sell my Blower to put a deposit down on the limited edition Z28 (1LE+LS7)...

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?

Here's another thought to ponder.

Either a NA LS7 as part of a Z/28 option package, or.....

A ZL1 with a SC LS7 to go up against the GT500?

I remember that thread and the tone was more geared towards people warning you that people could get into major trouble from what you posted. Technically, you haven't been proven right yet, though I hope you are.

What rear end would it need? Would the 1le rear hold the power?

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.

Thanks. Wrote it off because I just saw LS3. Still don't think the H.O. means anything like a HP increase but you never know these days.

Correct me if I'm wrong guys, but most are assuming a 2014 Z28 with an LS7 and probably a 1LE type suspension setup. But that is all an assumption. Which may be along the lines of something that I would pay for.

Nope. The LSA is still on there.

The 5th Gen has been a steady sales success first because it was a ground breaking design and had a legion of fans waiting to buy. The success was supported with special editions and the introduction of the Vert. That was followed by the much anticipated release of the Z/28 which turned out to be the LSA powered ZL1 loaded with electronic genius. The addition of the 1LE for 2013 keeps excitement high and sales moving. So what do we do for 2014? We just happen to have a handful of LS7 production motors available. We have brakes, drive line, suspension and more to go with an LS7. We just happen to have another revered name plate we could use. Why not build a 427 LS7 powered Z/28 in 2014? That will keep the focus on the 5th Gen headed into the 2015 model year. What can you expect in the 15? My guess is a knock you socks off LS9 ZL1. That keeps the 5th Gen new and exciting for the release of the Alpha 6th Gen as a 2016.

I don't think the Camaro TEAM needs my future product schedule advice, but I do enjoy reading the tea leaves and knowing what they are going to do next. The real luxury we have is if they don't follow our strategy we can all blame them later for not giving us what we wanted
