I'm pretty sure the LSA intercooler has more core volume than the ls9 does.

Isnt heat soak common with all roots style blowers... i was in a KB GT500 (684 rwhp)and after 2-3 hits the power loss on WOT is very noticeable..

but i dont have to worry about that I went centrifugal. Name:  IMG_2368.jpg

I'm sure GM has some stuff up their sleeve to have the Z28 look a little different than the SS Camaros. The front facia looks to be somewhat different with the splitter and possible air ducts. There could be a different rear spoiler yet. I would wait to see the final product.

so far only major exterior difference seems to be the hood...
And the fascia is different. Exhaust is different. Wheels look like they'll be different. And that is a lot more than the difference between the LT and SS

The people at GM never thought we would be so hard core as a group to track the 5th Gen at above 150 MPH. The current fascia doesn't like those speeds. It would make sense that the next level Camaro have a fascia that is more track friendly. In my book that means the look will change with the improved function. Everyone will read this as my knowing more than I do. The fascia issue is well known. The conclusion is my own and nothing more.

Heat soak is common to the entire LS range

I wonder if they will ever come out with the hide-away headlamps like the 67-69 Camaro's, now that would be cool !!!

Sub frame and radius bushings maybe? A good place to start anyway. I know that you have outfitted a bunch of GM specialty cars, maybe they already have your knowledge at their fingertips.

Agreed! Hope they offer a medium blue again!

the thing is this. people that know cars will immediately be able to spot a Z28 over the rest of the 5th gens. Same with the GT500. Just like 99% of the population can see a ZR1 and their thought will be their goes another corvette.

I forget what FbodFather said, but hideaways are a no-go these days.
