SS in Heaven

Well then , we will have to put my SS up to the GT500 ! I cannot do the 556 HP, I actually got 546 RWHP on the Dyno! I was preying for the moderately strong 500 ish HP when Camaro was first prototyped but never we mind. I will have to stay with my SS unless I move it on up to a 500 HP Z06 or ZR1 ! That's not cool though.......I think when I get my CEL dilema sorted out I can go look for a GT500 ......it would be an interesting race!

The thing they have to take into consideration with front facing scoops is creating lift at high speeds.

If(and I am SURE they will) they whore it out to the Ring, they will need to pay attention to front end aero.

That was the first thing I noticed (the SC I mean). I think we're definately in for a bump in power over CTS-V. I know that LSA's upper plenum didn't fit under the cowl, however, I'm suprised they went with LS9's upper plenum/intercoolers straight-out. Hmm... I definately like the looks of this plenum though; it's all bulging or something - more aggressive. I hope they're getting the 2300 rotors though

I hope it rips-up the corners as good as I'm sure it's going to tear down the straights, too

At first, I thought the hood extractors were a little much, but I like that it looks like the TF2 hood scoop is still there. After looking more at the images, I'm definately loving it more!

I disagree with the bump in power over the CTS-V. The LSA plenum doesn't fit very well. It has to be trimmed and therefore inhibit airflow. There is going to have to be something else done. Mine is purely speculation though.

From what I can see from the hood it appears to have extractors like the GT500, the extractors in the center of the "scoop".

I love the horsepower wars. I'm hearing from an inside source at Ford (Flatrock Mich, where they build the Mustang) that the GT500 for 2012 is going to up the HP level as well - it is reportedly going to be nearer 570-ish and a little lighter once again. Should be interesting if true.

Anyone have any weight numbers - real or rumored - for the new Z?

Im not impressed unless it is a ls9 engine (with perhaps a lsa blower). The gt500 will be lighter, will have the stronger drive train setup (solid rear), and the the engine in the gt500 is forged. In other words its good for a lot of additional horsepower. Ford even went out of the way to make sure the new gt500 engine will take to modder's abuse. GM needs to do the same.

Huh, GM must have been working on this project for a looooong time.

This body has a "chicklet" Any guesses that the vin is under the 50,000 first produced bodies? I.E. it was pulled from production and had an engine swap.

Brake fluid is leaking from the cap. Too bad they don't have a sensor for that.
