Didn't the LS7 5Gen have a rating of 550HP?

The LS7 crate engine (part number 17802397) uses a high-performance replacement camshaft from GM Performance Parts (part number 12480033) to help it produce approximately 550 horsepower. Complementing upgrades include GM Performance Parts-developed headers and air intake system that will be offered at the Camaro’s launch in early 2009. The LS7 also is modified with a wet-sump oiling system; the production engine features a dry-sump system that requires an external oil tank.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, said "concept". Also probably trying to do a little marketing for GMPP. This is an indication of what YOU AND I can do with the LS7 if we owned one. I've heard there isn't a lot of room with what GM can do as an OE on the LS7...................but that is just a rumor.

I agree with you Pete.

I wish that ZL1 car was tearing up the streets so the Z/28 announcement could be made.

I did speak with an an anonymous source at GM about the ZL1. His exact words "It is track animal. People are going to love it. It looks best in white." This source is an engineer who does not usually get this enthusiastic. The car must be really good. Before anyone asks, I did NOT ask him about anything Z/28. and would never post anything that was part of a private discussion meant to stay private. Accolades about a product that has been announced are a different matter.

What does this mean to the Z/28 we want our 5th Z/28 and we want it now group? It means that a 5th Gen with a bit less weight in the nose (LS7) and a bit less weight overall would be an even more aggressive track animal by inference.

Pete, I know it has been mentioned before but it's always good to hear again that I and the other Z/28er's truly appreciate your knowledge and input.

Sooooooo......get crackin'!"


Folks we really need to start voicing our opinions outside of this forum!
I'm all for it! There are electric cars out there that will blow your V8 off the road, any road, all day, any day. The Z28 should be the Leno Camaro.

Additional vehicle sales. If Chevrolet believes they will sell more total Camaros by adding the Z/28 to the line they will find a way to build one.

So would filling in the price gap 40k+ assist in the sales-ability of the Camaro?
And what about the marketableness of the Z28 being added to the line? Wounldn't it provide more interest and excitement for the Camaro? Is the Z28 the most familiar model in the Camaro line?
After all in sales isn't marketing king?
