Not to be a party pooper but I think we have a 2nd gear grind, there are a few threads and as far as I know, there are no recalls from GM.

I love GM, but just saying, and yes, I want a LS7!!!!!!

Anyone?

I know there will be some difference, I'm just wondering with the increase in torque and all how it would feel. It should be lighter than a ZL1, actually it should be about the same weight as the SS so I'm wondering how close it would come to a ZL1?

We don't know what they will do but I seriously doubt a Z28 would weigh the same or less than an SS. Bigger rear end would add weight. I don't want them to worry about weight too much because that would drive up cost.

I jI can't convince myself that a Z/28 is worth it if. Super-charged SS will match it and it's apparently difficult to mod the LS7.

LS7 is more difficult to mod, and because if the siamese cylinders they are not that good under boost.

If I were to get one, it would just be cam/headers/intake which would give you one heck of a street car.

It seems common for the LS7 with cam/head/CAI/exhaust/tune to make in the 600BHP range. LPE has a 660BHP LS7 package, Katech offers a 630BHP LS7 package so this seems to be something that the tuners have gotten down.

That can't be right can it?

Could the LS7 equipped Camaro be anything other than a Z28?
Samething I was thinking...

Sounds like you need to change your username. $5k mark up? Order one, or you can find some for below invoice.

A 1LE + LS7 would be one bad ass Camaro.
1LE + LS3 is bad ass too, no?

"It is not the final document, as it does not include a complete or accurate list of models or content. As you can imagine, the VIN card requires a tremendous amount of collaboration to verify the production information for each model across all four GM brands sold worldwide.

Rest assured, when we finalize the 2014 VIN card, it will be complete and factually accurate."


So that adds one more piece of information to chew on and what this all means, if anything....
It means that, that VIN card is accurate for the Camaro.

notice the highlight area???? The Book code for the camaro is 8E, and the Camaro VIN card shows the LS7 as does it correlate with the passenger car engine table!!
I don't see the LS3 in that....
