Then again, Robin Lawrence from GMPP had the LSA in his camaro, and he was saying it was heat soaking like a bastard, so they probably decided to upgrade.

PS: OM NOM NOM!!!!
I'm pretty sure the LSA intercooler has more core volume than the ls9 does.

Why? It's not like the Z28 will handle better than your SS.

We need to start guessing the EPA mileage ratings. I'm gonna say 12 city 19 hwy.

With the current setup, which is one GREAT car, we have the weight of the supercharger and very large intercooler in front of the wheels. That extra weight forward and restriction on air flow to the radiator hold us back on track. With an LSA the weight will be better distributed and the cooling air flow cleaner. If we are to stay cutting edge I have to move to the latest and greatest from GM.

This is really bothering me because I love my current Camaro. Every sneak release picture of the car that doesn't exist is like a poke in the side saying, sell your car and get the car that doesn't exist...

Maybe, if it has 3.73 gears. A little better MPG with 3.45 gears. But I am not buying it for gas mileage anyway. I would like to see 15 and 20 if possible.

thats exactly how i feel. i dont want to get rid of mine. i love it and have alot of plans for it but this z28 is looking so good to me the more i see about it.

why not ditch the pro charger for the magna charger? get rid of the over axle weight and put it on top of the motor like the lsa. yeah you get some heat soak, but get a hood like they obviously did here on the z28, and youll be good.

So 1000 more for the tires and wheels, 7000 more for the LSA over the LS3, maybe a 1000 more for the body kit all over stock.... So MSRP not more than 10K over 2SS or 1SS interior package...

Might be worth it if they figure out the wiring and not have it all stuck into an ugly ballast. Otherwise I'll find a wrecked CTS-V and Camaro with a blown engine and do it myself.

I guess they have a year to figure it out.

I would bet it's a Zeta exclusive intercooler. To be used on the Z28 and holdens. It has to clear the cowl and cool efficiently. I'm sure it is different than both the current LSA and LS9 coolers.

If and when a more potent version of the 5th Gen Camaro arrives, it should be more than a just a motor change...

So how is the weather?

Great minds think aloud and alike. Do you think Chevrolet is listening?
