I'm shocked that they didn't use the Twin-Turbo V6. Would have been lighter, preformed like a V8 and handled like a V6. Hmmmm maybe the 6th Gens?

My guess is the new twin turbo 3.6 V6 is not much lighter than a LS7 v8. My guess is it could be even heavier.

I always wonder why people think a twin turbo v6 will weight less then this v-8. the ducting and turbos add weight and it's not like the v-6 weighs that much less then a v-8 anyways. oh well.

I knew this day would come. to you chevy.

If you are referring to the new LT1 then probably. I didn't read up on the SS revamp. This is what I want. lol. but the ls3 and the current v6 are only 100lbs apart. that's my point.

I had one of those 302 DZ motors back in the mid seventy's. Only small block chevy I have ever owned that I came off the line at 10,200 RPM. Yes you read that correctly

Yes the new LT1. You and I would go back and forth in the Z28 threads regarding the Z28 having an LT1 or LS7.

That would be correct, the 302 shared the 4" bore and blocks with the 327 and 350 engines, the 302 ci displacement was obtained by using the shorter stroke 283 crankshaft. Whoever did that article for the LS7 needs to do a serious re-write!

Awesome car. I think if I wanted a car I did nothing but track I would have one. For a car I can drive every day, and rock the track with I will take a ZL1 however.

Then you must have had a '69 as that was the only year for the DZ version, '67/'68 302s were not the DZ version.

I wonder if the Z28's LS7 is going to come complete with the Z06 LS7's crappy valvetrain. Lots of unhappy camper Z06 owners. I hope the general gets it right on this one

The Z is Back!

Hmmmm no HID, no LEDs, no cushion in the rear seats, no speakers and they even removed the wiring to save a pound. So it’s not going to be easy to retrofit. Did I miss something or couldn’t you always order the Z28 RPO with all trim levels and an automatic?? What about a Z28 Vert?? Finally after waiting for what seemed a lifetime for the Z28 to return it comes in only one limited model flavor… If one can only afford one Camaro, and one wants to take it to the track and make use of it for anything else I guess one must rough it! Seems to me what should have been done to the ZL1, the Z28 was more of a masses car. It just seems flipped to me..

First gen. Z/28 could not be ordered with auto tranny, air conditioning and not available as a vert.
