12 + is just a guess on my part, but it wouldn't surprise me. ....Forgot to mention the 3" hooker headers w/dumps. It is funny....on gravel where the tail pipes point down at idle the smaller gravel gets puffed away by the exhaust......fun to drive!!!!

So I got to drive a new LS3 Corvette today...
Oh my god.
That thing was amazing.
I didn't get to drive it for long enough to get a really comfortable feel of it, I just kept it in auto (as opposed to paddle shift). It still kicked some major ass.

I haven't gotten to drive a Corvette before, so I don't know if it's the extra HP or just the fact that it's a Corvette. Either way, I just know I need to have something like it.

over on ls1tech fbodfather replied to this guys post about the new camaro having an ls2 instead of an ls3. here are his words plain and simple...
"And you heard it here FIRST that you're wrong.......

..........and just atwixt us....what would you like on those words when they're served up?????"

I don't think we need to speculate anymore...seems pretty clear to me we are gonna be getting an ls3.

Good. Haha!! I'm now so much happier about this car. I mean, I was before, but I'm even happier now!

Dark Knight, could you possibly post up a link to that conversation? I want to read the whole argument that drew Scott out of hiding .

Thx! I loved that! haha! gotta love Scott. I'm glad that person was shut down. If Scott didn't do it, I would have registered just to do it...God, "3 V8's"?!?! He's on crack.

"G8 is basically the Camaro" must've switched to weed...

What a fool.

Good find though, that entertained me.

Autoblog: Have you guys arrived at a final decision for the top powertrain?

Ed Peper:
No, not yet. We will have a V8, a couple of V6s -- you know, we'll have a fuel efficient V6 and we'll have a high performing V6 and we will have a high performing V8 but we haven't settled on the engine in that yet.
This was posted by the Admins a while back. But I think we've over looked it...

he said it kinda "slurred", but maybe this means 2 V6's (definitely), and 2 V8's (depending on how you read it)
Perhaps both the L76 and the LS3 will make it into production?

Oh, btw...this is how I read it; minus his explanation of what 2 V6's meant...

Quote:

So, they have the base V8 decided on, the 2 V6's are decided, but they have yet to decide on the Hi-Po V8...this was before the LS3 was released in the Vette.(January 8th, 2007) - so can anyone say LS3?

I hope you were joking. Because I in no way was claiming to have "official" information. You just asked if anyone can say LS3. I did...because that's what I want. Although it's pretty much probably going to happen that the LS3 goes into the Camaro.

the "" and the ":bellyroll" didnt give away that I was joking?

Of course I know that you have no official info. I was jabbing at your "grammatical enthusiasm through the use of underlineing, and bold-font"

There won't be an LS7 with S/C unless someone aftermarkets it. GM feels the cylinder walls are too thin to support it. The LS9 and LSA use the LS3 block and mod up from there.

The LS7's compression is too high and pistons aren't forged either. The head bolts are smaller than that of the LS9 among other things.

I think that if we can get the LS8 or LSA, we'll be doing pretty good with the 500. If we start heading toward the LS9, the price will go through the roof, and I'm sure GM made that specifically for the ZR1.

I'm holding to LSA or LS8; please please please

http://www.pontiac.com/g8/
that is true i don't see them getting rid of the ls2... it's like they had the ls1/6 around when the ls2/7 were out now i think it'll be more like the ls3/9 with the ls2/7... also are they switching to letters instead of numbers b/c the new 09 or 10 cts type v is getting a LSA??

I don't think I've welcomed you to the site, yet....Welcome!!

That's a +8 month old quote...the LS2 isn't in the G8; its engine is named the L76. The LS2 is pretty much dead already, so no LS2 in the Camaro.

As for the LSA...it's really just another designation. I don't think anyone knows why they called any of them what they did.

LS2 is dead, except to LS2 owners.

as far as calling it the LSA, its just a variant of the LS9. they use the diff naming structure for diff sub companies. LS9-Chevy, LSA-Caddy, the LSA has a smaller s/c and a few other minor differences but is basically the same motor. just like the LS2-LS7 are the same block, the LS1-LS6 are the same block setup, and the LS3-LS9 is the same block, just throw a s/c on it and call it a day.


side note, there are other differences not listed between the motors, such as the LS1-6 are of the Gen III family, while the LS2,3,4,7,9,A,X motors are all Gen IV.

now if you really want a big motor for the new camaro, go with the LSX 511cubes.
