Why not. I know no other GM cars have them but the type of people who buy this car will likely be very into tracking their cars and will want this feature, the Boss has the, aslo.

Adjustable shocks and coilovers are very different items. Coilovers adjust height as well which changes crash worthiness.

Unless we see something soon, we should start building the 6th gen Z/28.

I had thought of going to Pete and Becky and saying offer a 1LE with Pedders, ZL1 brakes, ZL1 side skirts and an LS7 option calling it a 1LZ. The ZL1 emblems will work (just reverse them)

I'd like to see a LS7 dropped in a 1LE just to see how it would run.

I find it unusual that no one has mentioned competition from the new model from Dodge....the Core Challenger SRT... a no frills, cloth interior, 470 hp 392 6-speed Challenger for $39,995.

This is a Camaro site, so that's usually the main topic. There is a "Camaro vs" thread for comparisons to other makes.

I realize that, but there have been several mentions of the Boss Mustang in this thread....as competion to the Z28 (or 1LE). So as long as we are speculating about the Z28 (and its competition) then some should be aware of a budget Challenger. I for one like the idea of a less expensive (and possibly lighter) LS7 powered Camaro. I think getting the weight down below 3800 lbs with an LS7 would sell like hotcakes. In the "other makes " section there is mention of the Core Challenger SRT. I just thought people interested in an LS7 Z28(as I am) would like to know about the competition.

I already mentioned it (included a link) a week or 2 ago in Shno's thread.

....my vision is, since Pete is such a force in the automotive performance world, showing GM a Pedders full Monte Becky upgrade ride, going onward to achieving an OEM supplier status, and then ultimately breaking out to an RPO dealer installed full performance package for our beloved next Gen Camaro. It's gonna happen, mark my words.

..the skinny is there may be a 427 CID retro esque LS style "LS7" type Gen 5 DI motor coming...be carefull what you wish for! Funk and Wagnel says it may be in the works for the C7 Z06 Vette. Oh, sorry, thats the not too distant future, the old LS7, in short supply, will be available for a limited run for the Camaro5 line before the line change. They moved the Wixom works next year to Bowling Green.

I meant I'd like to see someone drop a crate LS7 in, not a factory option.

...I imagine someone has already done it, but since we are a small microcosim of the HP world here we haven't read about it on C5.

The problem with the SRT8 even though it is a 1/4 mile beast is that its weight and suspension dont hang with the Boss and 1LE on a road course. When the LS7 Camaro hits the streets I believe it will own both competitors at the strip or track.

I'm sure if it hasn't happened, it will.

....plug and play...today, with the internet and networking available as if it were in a phone book....it's a no brainer. Research and or trial by error has gone by the wayside...for the ones wanting the knowledge....it's only a click away.
