Integrated exhaust manifolds? I guess that means no more LT's for the v6 crowd without a head swap...
Probably the cat conv is integrated into the manifold. Not the head/manifold.

Talk about the #1 fugly feature that needed to be addressed! As far as the new one is concerned, GM definitely should have spent another $30 and put the CAMARO logo on it, I at least agree with that, instead of a generic look, but that round turd of a wheel is the primary thing I can't wait to throw in the dumpster and put ANYTHING on that will fit!
Hell, disable the airbag and shove a Grant on it..anything. It's the first thing I noticed when I first saw a Camaro, and it's the one thing I absolutely disdain on my car. (well, clutch sux too...)

I know it's all about personal taste and opinion, so there's my $.02 worth.
..and yes, not buying the stripes on the car either.

BTW, the Passenger seat "fix" should be considered a Service Bulletin so we can get that addressed in our current cars. It's not an enhancement or a cool new feature. It's a problem that was addressed and should be a warranty issue.
i would have to say that i agree with you on the pass.seat issue,my wife nor my son can see over the dash while sitting in it,a person would have to be probably 5ft.6 or so to see the front of the car,..oh and it would be GREAT if g.m. would offer a HUD upgrade for the 2010 2lt and 2ss at a discounted $

I would be willing to bet that U could not thin the walls of a 3.6L anymore without suffering some serious head and cylinder cooling issues

At a current 270HP in the 3.0L and the now dead and ancient 2.8L Turbo pushing out 325HP without DI.. I'm thinking a 3.0L Di TT will easily get 400-425HP. Essentially we are only talking about enuff Boost to pick up another 130-150HP
The 3.6L can be punched out to 4.0L's as designed. So the cylinder walls are probably strong enough to withstand turbo'ing in a 3.6L. But it will probably make 500hp with modest boost levels-maybe GM doesn't want that?

I wont go as far as saying I dont love my Camaro anymore,

BUTTT

these new changes are almost too much to overlook...

WOW - I think I need to consider swapping up to a 2012...glad I didnt do anything motor-wise to mine yet. I can just swap my wheels on to the new one

Best thing I have read on here this year!!!!!!
DUDE. Same here! Our camaro's are nice but this is awesome. I may have missed out but its excellent that GM didnt just sit on its laurels. Its fixed what most "expert reviewers" complained about the cars.
These changes are good enough for me to consider trading up :-D

Any guesses on how long will it take for an enterprising person to retrofit the back-up cam/rearview mirror and the power passenger seat to a '10 or '11??

Probably a couple of weeks to a month from release.

Great changes for 2012, except for the 45's all over the place. 50, not 45, would be a good milestone to produce an anniversery edition. Just my opinion.

They'll probably do both. My '02 is a 35th anniversary.
