Pete-

I recall the "reveal" of the L28 @ SEMA '09...and I recall seeing the car in clay, Aug/09, along with the clay mock-up of LPE's "Trans Am" package as well, in Troy...

Now that you've "spilled the beans"...WOW!

Sorry the "tip-off" posts from Page 33 were removed...and I'm glad Post #820 was made when it was...

Congrats all around, Pete/Mike!!

It's going to be an "L" of a CAR!

I wonder if this car is going to start out as a 1LT or 1SS before they start the conversion process.

Good question... seems like with all the mods they are doing, they should be able to use a base model V6

An L28 was revealed by LPE @ SEMA '09...this is a "freshening" of that model/concept based on an SS, which, if accepted by customers, can be duplicated/marketed to those who want "the real deal".

The L28 can be found on LPE's website...Silver with Gray LPE cladding and orange-accented wheel hoops...like Pete's red-accented wheel hoops...

2cc, put me down for...ummm...ahhh...lemme see...CEE...for ZEE!

Pete,
L/28's 0-60, 1/4, skidpad, slalom? Real or guesstimate is fine.
Thanks

Sorry, I just don't believe all the marketing hype. I work for corporate N. American, and nothing is ever what they tell you.

I know a 427ci. can produce a huge amount of power, and doesn't take electronic trikery traction controls to keep it together.
So, give me a custom job anytime over the tame stock stuff.

I suspect the groundwork laid by the L28 and its contributors will be closely scrutinized by the Team...and many others...and I suspect the results @ Pahrump will surprize/shock more than a few...

The cool thing will be, IF (capitals, italics) an LS7'd ZEE sees the light of an Oshawa day, the L28 is only "just beyond" for those so inclined...

We know what we did the last time out at Spring Mountain and expect to be significantly better in every measurable performance category.

Of that, I have NO doubt...

My "sig" is/was not the result of a recent dream/nightmare, and for those who scoff at the possibilities/capabilities of an LS7 Gen-5, OEM or otherwise "augmented", this lil example will clearly supply the answer:

"STFU"

It's not too late for Camaro Performers Magazine, a perennial observer of the Optima Challenge, to put together their own lil "Camaro Tuner Challenge"...in the same location...at the same time...as a "side bet" to the Optima deal... After all, all the "hitters" will have their prettied-up best @ SEMA...but are they "runners" or simply "angel hair'd damsels"?!

There's ONE sure way to find out...

Oh, and if they can pry the ZL1 mule out of Leno's mitts, bring it too...

Pete,
I hear another LS7 based car is going to the Optima Challenge. Goldbergs 70' TA. But it has only 636 HP. It's nice to see the LS7 is still very popular.

Final track testing, final adjustments and then ship to SEMA. Working with LPE is just awesome because they are so professional. Create a plan and execute. It is LPE style. Then we have other companies that run differently. They are exceptionally creative, but a little more notice would be good. Phone call TODAY --

Hey Pete, you got a minute.

Sure. What's up.

I have FIVE SEMA bound vehicles in need of suspension. Can you help.

What have you got?

XXXXXX and nobody has suspension for it yet, but I figured you do.

We do have ONE last set of coilovers, but no lowering coils.

Pete, I HAVE to have five sets. One will be built before SEMA and FOUR at SEMA.

Uhhhhh, I'll figure something out for you.

Cool. I knew I could count on you guys.



Is SEMA over yet
