What is GM going to announce at SEMA? Stop by and Find out!

Exactly as the title says: What do you guys anticipate General Motors will be launching/announcing at SEMA?

Anyone have any theories, insider info, wishes for what GM will be unavailing? If so, post them up here! We want to hear what you have to say! Anyone think there will be anything groundbreaking? Or business as usual? We have already seen some sneak peeks, but what is next?

There will be plenty of surprises in-store for SEMA. Can't go into any details, but BE SURE to stop by and see Pfadt Race Engineering at GM's fantastic exhibition booth. There are a couple major announcements taking place and we will be sure to get the word out!

I hope they are finally releasing their Cold Air Intake. I really want to see what they have come up with. It has taking forever and is beyond ridiculous.

When did they start working on it? About when the Camaro first came out?

Initially they had one out, but it did not perform well at all. They went back to the drawing board and no one has heard anything since. It is supposed to be released in October, but it does not look like that is happening. I'm in no hurry, so we will see what they offer. If I don't like it, I will buy elsewhere.

To me it looks like it might be more of a stripped down version made for race. Based on the fuzzy pictures looks like different wheels, smaller steering wheel, spoiler, and the red seen through the windows in the bottom pics--could that be a roll cage?

Something tells me Pfadt might have something to do with the SSX.

Maybe a track package with racing seats and 18" or 19" wheels..

SSx in the past was a dealer/conversion trim package that was offered on impala's, tahoe's, suburban's, siverado's and full size vans to name a few. I remember seeing an impala lt and suburban at the nearest stealer a few years ago.

I hope chevy is not going to start offering tacky stripe packages for the camaro, the camaro is a classy muscle coupe that imho should not be tricked out unless it is a limited run production camaro like a ZL1 type performance pac. We do not need strips getting the non enthusiast confused with the true SS and not just an added on stripe pac. jmho
