Lightbulb 2010 Camaro engine bay showing DI 3.6L V6 LLT engine ?

You decide.... I think yes!!

First engine bay photos.
Also featured on homepage.

CLUES:
-- "LLT" letters on some hoses indicate GM's LLT engine (the direct-injection 3.6L V6)
-- throttle-body size / shape and bolts holding it on
-- three fluid reservoirs in the same locations

so does this mean the v6 is not going to be direct injection?

I'd say the engine cover and exhaust says nothing about DI, only that it is the 3.6L.

I believe with 99% certainty that that engine IS the Direct Injected V6:

Note the two main similarities:
1: the hump at the rear of the intake manifold,
2: and the vacuum tube going into the manifold.

Direct Injection

Does the non DI have the vacuum hose (can't tell with the covers on)? The hump...now that is something I missed. By George, I think you are right.

Another thing to look for is the Throttle-Body size and shape and the bolts holding it on. Also the three fluid reservoirs are in the same locations. Lots of little cues. Including the servo-looking mechanism on the side of the throttle body!

Hower, one unrelated thing that's cool to see is that the hood is NOT supported by a prop-rod! Cool! I like that! Prop-rods scream "cheap" to me!

Never thought i would be so excited about a hump on top of the engine.
I do think it is the DI 3.6 not only because of that but the disciples wouldn't have stressed the performance of the V6 if it wasn't around 300hp.

What are the chances they will put a nice cover on the Camaro's V6 like that?

That looks like DI to me - look at the intake casting flash and TB. Looks very encouraging

Awesome, great pic....Engine bay seems to not be too cramped, at least for the V6..I also don't see a spot for the battery, so it might be in the trunk...yay

It's Black

Thumbs up

one thing i see under the hood that i like is the positive + battery terminal to jump the battery instead of the battery which means that the battery is in the trunk like it is in the G8, i love it!

So, in the germany vid alot of folks were saying that the car with the small wheel/tires was still a V-8 because of the exaust sound. I wonder if them folks were fooled by a V-6. Interesting.

My bad I was only looking at the pic of the engine in hood where you can see the reflection. The other pictures didn't show up the first time..lol.. Just look at the top pic and you'll see that it is hard to make out the color, and if you had to guess, you probably would guess a greyish color..

I figured the G8 engine would make its way into the V6 Camaro..

I guess we know that the scoop is not functional, at least on this car.

I think the V6 is a pretty large engine (outside dimensions). It may be deceptive.
