In 2014 the camaro will have all new powertrains and one will be a LF3 vvt which means a twin turbo v6 and it should have around 350 to 360HP its going to be a beast but everyone is going for the LS7 camaro but a twin turbo setup will be alot better with bolt ons and tuning look it up

Where did you get those numbers for the LF3? 360 HP is not 505 HP. You would have to do some bolt ons and tuning just to hit the LS7 power stock.

Besides, how do you know the Camaro is getting an all new power train for 2014?

A twin turbo v6 will not be lighter than an ls7.

Doesn't bother me at all, I'm quite happy with the 580hp of my ZL1.

Even if they came out with a SC LS7 for the ZL1 to bump the power up, I still wouldn't care. 580 is more than enough to put a smile on my face for a looooong time.

However the question in my mind is still the same. If the new LT1 is coming out, why not just use it?

Maybe since the Vette won't be using it

And the Vette always gets the new engine for a few years first.

not true the c6 vette got the LS2 its first year, 05,and the GTO went from the LS1 in 04 to the LS2 in 05. and the new vette is getting the LT1 as the base engine, so it would not be surprising if the camaro moved to the LT1 for 2014.

Your ZL1 is an awesome automobile. The attraction of the LS7 is less weight and heat. There is no blower. Heat soak will not be as intense. i.e. The LPE Pedders L/28 from the factory with a warranty.



Just short a few ponies of the L/28

Rumor has it that the ATS-V will be a twin turbo V6. Due next year I think. We would likely see that before the twin turbo z/28.
