Talking Z lovers, don't worry

so this is called the zl1 (which makes sense in terms of power) no reason to bash it because it not called a z28 because just in a year the z28 will probably be out if not earlier than a year. Why do i say that? because, the camaro trims seemed based on the transformers movies for example: the concept bumblebee is our beloved v6 while in transformers 2 its the zl1, so after seeing how the styling of bumblebee in t3 is I'm sure that its the z28 *jay leno* it makes perfect sense.

but the boss is a waste of money IMO. my friends 5.0L with some mods is already faster then the boss. if the z/28 turns out like the boss then that will be a waste to i feel like. it would have been so epic to see that z/28 with a supercharger

I still expect a Z28, especially after the discussion pointed out that there isn't anything in the Boss-fighting spot. The GM reps acknowledged that point and suggested that they might be interested in going that route in their classic, cryptic way.

I don't think the Boss 302 is a waste of money at all. I personally think that's its reasonably priced.

IMO you can't compare the Boss to a 5.0 because there's allot of features the Boss have that the 5.0 doesn't. Like for example the Recaro Racing Seats, Dual Mode Exhaust, Track Ready Suspension, and a factory Race Tune. thats just a couple feature the Boss have that the 5.0 doesn't. and the best part you get all that with a Full Factory warranty.

I don't think a moded/stock 5.0 will be faster than a moded/stock Boss 302.

The Z/28 should be a car with 475HP, suspension capable of over 1g, weight reduction, lighter rims, great braking, short throw shifter, special seats, new hood/spoiler, full length racing stripes mandatory, (like convertible concept) splitters, wider tires, special exhaust, and anything else to make it a true attainable top-level drivers car. That right there is enough to make people forget about the Boss and run to the Z28.

A nice LS7 in a Z28 would rock. Do not supercharge it but have be full of low end torque for road racing. And put a great track handling package on it. Would then put a price right between the SS and ZL1.
