Or we can continue intelligently discussing what are allegedly spy pictures of the still rumored Z28 and use prior rumors to substantiate hopes on what lies down the road for said rumored car.

And yea, it was for some of the higher end SUV's but was supposed to also be for the higher end camaro. All before it was dropped.

Via older left lane news article, for what it's worth.

Quote:
LS8

This is another 6.2-liter, smallblock V8 with a supercharger. It also features an intercooler integrated into the intake manifold. This will be the motor going into the top-end Zeta platform cars. The most premium Camaro, probably called Z28, will get this motor.

That said, original plans had this motor going into a Denali SUV or truck, however, those plans now seem to be canceled. Again, this maybe a result of CAFE.

Some of Holden's vehicles may also get this motor eventually. Initial specs have this motor at 475 to 500 horsepower with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions.

When the LS7 dies, the Z06 will get this motor. Possibly, slightly uptuned from the version the Zeta cars would get. This motor will start production in first or second quarter of 2010.

I can see a LS8 using the ZR1 2300TVS but with non forged pistons. However, I would rather have the fully forged bottom end of the LS9 with a smaller blower. That way, much like the GT500, the bottom end doesn't have to touched much to hold solid power.

Looks like they redesigned the supercharger to fit under the Camaro cowl like Robin Lawrence did.

Having a forged bottom end is awesome

GM did it with both forced induction Ecotecs

Hey, we're all dreaming here right?

I hope they ditch the pad for a piston design.

Carbotech makes a single pad to replace em though so all is well.

Can anybody read the tires sizes on the sidewalls?

LoL at some of you guys complaining about a Camaro with more than 556hp.

From a previous post:

The wheels are 20" SP550 anodized black - 20x10 front and 20x11 rears. Wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires.

I know we can't see the hood real well ,but I'm not really feeling it at this point. I will however reserve judgement until the real deal is out. I'm about ready to abort at this point and just get a convertible. I'm getting too old for this much power anyhow.

I get that the pictures come from a "spy photographer" what I don't get is who let them get so close to the car and take pictures willy nilly??? I mean if this is some top secret tester, you would think security would be tighter than just letting some random person walk up and snap some shots while the hood is open??

they're allowing people to take pictures so the hype can build. it's not by mistake we have seen a clear succession in the pictures. first an entirely camoed front on that white one a WHILE back. then the gt500 testing, then some camo is shed, then this. It's all for a reason. I suspect the final "unveiling" will come early 2011. Don't take my word for it, though

Why would they use a less efficient blower, rather than a more efficient blower that gets the same horsepower as the bigger one?

Have you seen some of the lenses that Brenda Priddy and Chris Doane use? They have zoom lenses that make stuff that's a mile away look like you're standing next to it.

There's an article here:

http://abcnews.go.com/Business/newes...8353139&page=1

about how Brenda Priddy gets her shots. You can see one of her foot long lenses in the second pic on the story.

Does anyone think they may go back to the red "performance" bowtie for the Z/28? Bumble Bee has one. Unless there is some change to the badging, I don't see the point in covering it up. My 5 year old would know that was a Camaro badging or no.

if you follow vehicles at all you know its all marketing and such. all cars start heavily camoed and by the time they are ready to be revieled for real we have basically seen everything. they strip away layers, get people excited and talking. and they have crazy lenses as others have talked about so this is all very normal stuff

Look how dusty and dirty that engine bay is, hope they use some kind of filter on those scoops to keep that out.

the vents look like they are for heat to help cool the blower not for cold air induction.

I have known that and you know that. Its just funny that its out in the open and people are wondering what it looks like.

I still say after looking at those scoops..its just to get air in while the cover is on the hood..but it might be in the final product but Im just speculation.
