I thought the Camaro LLTs had upgraded timing, air/fuel mapping and other changes that made more power.

Or...I am talking out of my ass.
yes they do, the actual engine does not upgrade that stuff, its all in the tune

I am just saying that the car was sold to me as an "LLT" and everything I have read says it is. I originally thought it was the LFX as well. Maybe I am wrong - but so far what I have to compared points to the LLT.

Is it possible you bought a 2011 in 2012?

All 2012 models were LFXs.

Will do. I will try to post tonight.
Edit:
Didn't mean to hijack the thread.
Edit II:
I was out running errands and stopped by the Chevrolet dealership. They confirmed it is the LFX engine. Glad that has been settled and happy to be proven wrong! I was seriously confused but trusted the place I bought it.
Guess the dealership I bought the car from had no idea what was in the 2012 car.

Sorry for the hijack..

No need for that.

Coolant cap will be up front in the middle on the LFX.

Didn't get the car back yet. It needs a new windshield. They knew that entire 3 weeks it has been there. Even said the body shop tried to come do it a few times but the car was up in the air. Dealer called yesterday and said its ready to go. I asked if the windshield was done and said oh crap, it will be ready tomorrow then. Well I took a trip to the base to get some work done (I live two hours from base and dealer) and to be close by to get the car. Whole day went by and I called and he said the windshield was delivered to the wrong dealer but assured it would be ready tomorrow....so I get to drive all the way back there tomorrow...I bet they forget to fix my radiator fans...after they changed the timing chains the high mode stopped working and I have had to constantly remind them and every time the service tech acts as if its the first time I am mentioning it. I just want everything taken care of so I don't have to come back. Since owning the car it has had about 70 days of shop time..40 within the first 6 months.

I'd be trading it in on something that isn't a mechanical disaster. Good luck, OP.

Don't get me wrong. The dealership has always been great. Never questioned warranty, always gave me a brand new loaner even when I was too young for a dealer car they would pay for a rental. Treat me very well. They just kind of dropped the ball the last few days about the fans and windshield. Which they are a huge dealership with a lot going on. They only have like 5 service guys that organize it all.
