I was two phone calls away from being a test mule for a TT for the V6. I'm glad I didn't now.

I'm speaking just with FI, if you're going to spend that much time and money on an FI for the V6, why not just get the SS? Thats what I'm planning on doing now. More options for the V8's and after all the mods you can do with the V6, it still won't add up to the SS.

Don't get me wrong, I love my 1LT RS! I wish I could be driving it right now.

In what respect? I'm putting out the same HP at the crank as a LS3 on only 4.5 psi. The difference between the 1SS and an LS is about the same as a turbo kit for the LS. Then it doesn't cost anything to turn up the boost (until you break something). You would have to do full bolt ons and a cam to get the LS3 in a range where it puts out more power than the LLT at 9-10 psi. Then you can spend the money you would have spent on those parts lowering the compression ratio and getting forged pistions and bigger fuel pump for the LLT and up the boost some more. Basically, if money is the issue you have to be shooting for > 700+ HP at the crank before the LS3/L99 become the more cost effective route. Until then it isn't a big enough difference to worry about.

Do you guys think this is the nail in the coffin for possible superchargers for the LLT? Or maybe the two engines will be similar enough to share the same mods?

it only puts out 11 more hp, a CAI and exhaust can match that. The LFX engine should be tuned to 350 to make it a worthwhile upgrade. These measly hp #s game between Ford and GM is starting to get old. If you're going to bump up the #s(HP/torque), make it substantial(50 @ a time, imo)...up the ante a little more

Huh...

The displacement is still the same and just guessing form the picture, the placement is the same too... That said, any turbo kit built for this should work for the engines in our cars too... Not to mention that with the v6 you still have less weight and better mileage then the v8 (even better if you turbo it). So chin up my friend... something better always comes along, you gotta learn to be happy with what ya got . I think TT kits are not coming to us quickly enough not because a new engine is coming out, but because on average v6 camaro owners dont have the money to install one. If they did, they prolly would have bought an SS lol. If you purchased your v6 in the hopes that a TT kit costing 4k with install would come out... then you prolly should have saved a little more and picked up the SS. Just my 2 cents.

The question is, how different will the computer be? That's the problem most people are seeing when it comes to the LLT.

Except for the integrated exhaust manifolds. I'm not saying you couldn't modify a current TT setup to work (still has to have a pipe), but what we have right now for the TTs won't just bolt on to the LFX.

I love my 2010 RS. I would not change a thing. I do wish it got better gas mileage in town. My Red Camaro still turns heads... MS.05 (Pronounce Miss 05, my stock car number in dirt track racing)

Welcome aboard!

Any word on them opening up the road course in Memphis. I'm glad the 1/4 mi. is open again, but it is a pain to drive to Tulsa or Dallas for the road course!

Thats true... I didnt see the integrated exhaust manifold. That could be problematic. Well... it seems like there is nothing we can do now... I think cheap bolt-on TT kits are gonna be out of the question. But there is still hope for SC kits.
