If there are "two" V6's then I'd wager to bet that one of them will be the DI V6 w/ 300hp debuting in the new CTS.

But what the hell do i know?!?!?
I only thought there was 1 V6, but I don't follow Ford that closely.

I thought there was only one Ford V6 offered in the Stang as well. I think we'll see two V6 options in the 5th Gen.

Like i said i might be wrong cause i don't follow Ford that close either. I'm pretty sure their are different options for them though cause i see all different kinds of 6'ers driving around that look nothing alike.

I don't think there is anything special about the 30 Camaros that will be built in October 08. Those are just probably the first of the first that we will see in Jan 09.

Then the Camaros built in Oct, Nov, and Dec will simply make up the initial stock of Camaros you will see on the lots in January 09.

There is only one Ford V6 offered in the Mustang.

Ahem...(cough). Even IF they put the L76 in it. 367hp (or something like that) is nothing to snort at!!!. I myself have fallen into this world where anything under 400hp seems like crap to me; "WRONG, Self!" I mean, sure 367 isn't a LOT of hp, but it's still a big number. I keep forgeting to put it into perspective.

Good things come to those who wait. I can be patient if it means getting just what I want. If I have to wait even a whole year, it's worth it. After all, I would want to keep it for a long time.

I've got to agree with Dragoneye. At first when read there was only going to be one v-8 I got a little ticked after all the build up from all the boards here an other sites. Then I got to thinking, there nothing set in stone that this is gonna be the only v-8, I thinking Base v-8 with more to follow shortly. Now if the Base is going to be the L76, from what I've read on it, I could be happy with it. 367hp at 87 octaine isn't to shabby (besides, it's over 130 horses more then my 4.7 v-8 in my Dakota)and if you read up on it if you use higher grade gas it'll get a boost of 20+ horses that's close to 400.
But then again the cars still two years away and a lot can change between now and then, maybe the LS3 will be the base(Fingers crossed).

Honestly, but don't quote me on this, I really, REALLY believe that the LS3 will be the base, and "high-end"(possibly superchraged) V8 for the Camaro, I mean, how can you follow an LT1, and then LS1 car, without an LS-series engine? You can...but you shouldn't. . And from what TAG said, it's supposed to be relatively cheap...about half the price of an LS7. So, I really think the LS3 will be in the base V8 Camaro. There's no solid evidence against it being used, anyway.

Hey, you be careful now, I hear them there black suburbans are scarry things You've got a very good point, they'd almost have to go with the (whispering) LS3. I just hope that from what I've been reading here that the prices are going to stay affordable. I'm looking at (fingers crossed) between 28k to 31k for my Camaro. If it's less great, if more I'll have to see what options I could live without, though my option list isn't that big.

I agree with the comment about the first 30 - at least some of those seem destined for the press fleet to go out and continue building hype. A friend of mine was an auto reviewer and I remember cruising in both a Prowler and a Signature Series SST (we took it to see Dio, Motorhead and Iron Maiden ) before either one hit the dealerships. Talk about headturners. We couldn't go two blocks without someone asking what they were, how much they cost and if we'd smoke the tires for them (poor Prowler couldn't - Plymouth!).

Same kind of thing likely to happen with our beloved Camaros.
