The LS7 might tear a sonic in half.

Yep,same here....I also mentioned an LS7 was coming,and guys thought I was nuts.
I also knew and mentioned about the Hot Wheels edition way back in the Spring,and was told I was crazy about that too!
And for those who don't remember....I was the first to post about the 1LE going into production as well

We know enough about FI in the LFX to know it is capable of those numbers without a doubt. But I do agree, that with the NA V6 already making 323, 380 doesn't sound like much for a TTV6....just have to remember there is A LOT more untapped potential there (and a very strong flat TQ curve!)
As DGthe3 mentioned in response to an earlier post of mine, the 380 hp TT3.6 is likely tuned more for FE than performance. Although I would hope to see a high output version for select applications (e.g. ATS-V, Alpha Buick Grand National [if they make one], etc.)

Yes....in the Corvette,they didn't say anything about the Camaro though

I think it's a cool idea but a waste since it will be slower then a zl1 so what's the point? Track car sorta like a 1le would make sense but to many people are hung up on the lack of straight line speed offered by the zl1 so how would this be any different?

I guess that it is a NA engine and not a FI engine. Also the characteristics of the engine will feel great as there is instant torque!!!

From a recent interview with Engine Labs.

"If you’ve been paying attention over the years, you’ve noticed that all of GM’s engine codes start with L, while all the transmission RPOs start with M. Suspension packages all start with Z. There are no more hyphenated designations, either, which is why the new LT1 is not LT-1 – although there was a strong push internally for the hyphen, according to Read. Only in the case of the Small Block engine, however, did anyone outside of the RPO naming group have input on a new code name. For you bread-and-butter Ecotecs and V-6s, the RPO group names them and that’s that."


The original RPO was for a handling package. It only became a trim option in the neutered 70's & 80's cars.

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.

It's about time. The snake will probably have 900 horsepower by then.

Looks like the 2014 VIN cards have been pulled from the website.

More fodder for the rumor mill!

There is no LS7 in the C7 Vette. Confirmed. That is the ONLY reason those LS7 motors are available for the Z/28. Don't forget that it is the EPA tlimits number of LS7s GM can install in production cars for the MY 2014. As a 5th Gen addict I'll take those LS7s C6 Vette leftovers in a 5th Gen all day long.
