Maybe 2014, new "Vette slated to come out with a DI, <hopefully shared with a Camaro in a HP upgrade like in days of old> Question, will the "Z" get it's return then? I'm starting to think so....<or speculate so>

They're the same folks that developed the wet-sump "conversion" available from GMPP...

They KNOW their LS7z! IIRC, they built the LS7 for the all-conquering Solstice featured in Hot Rod Magazine...

One thing I'd like to point out: the ZL1 out handled the Mustang largely because of the stiffer chassis, better weight distribution, and an independent rear suspension. I'm sure the MR shocks played a role too. Hmm ... where have I seen that before? That a lot of the mechanical stuff that makes the Camaro heavy, also improves its handling? That the Camaro is a better platform than the Mustang to make a great handling car? I'm not sure, but I think it some moderator on a Camaro website that has been saying that stuff for quite some time now.
remember me

Would the clutch be upgraded on the 1LE? I've heard the one in the SS can be an issue.

In the 1LE concept, I would have to imagine the clutch remained the same as the SS - as was the rest of the powertrain.

NO "confirmation" on what specific trans/diff/gear. Personally, I would have thought that a car with "sporting intent" would welcome the ZL1 HD upgrades... Pay for it once, up-front, and then "fugetaboutit"...

They mention a "6-speed Close Ratio Manual Transmission"...is that MG9?

And instead of HD driveline, they want to include the Leather Trim...

<Bump>....refresh...moving the once preferred and heavily posted one and Z only thread back to the top. Hmmmm, leather refinements? We don't need no stinkin' leather refinements!!!!'LOL <> Give us the HD drivetrain, MRC & lowered ride height with variable rate springs, heavier dampers and sway bars <whatever Pete recommends>...19" square rubber all around, MG9 with wet sump LS7.<can't we just baffle the pan?> and a cold ram air package from the hood. We're talkin' leather? Leather???? Howz about a 5 point harness and some racing buckets? 1LE as it's lookin' from my porch may be a gussied up SS, with "leather" and decals<trim level upgrade gosh tell me no>...albeit MRC and some other potential upgrades, but the LS3 is not my weapon of choice in an upgrade level. I would prefer to buy a 1SS and do it it my way with boxes of gear showing up in my driveway. I'm now seriously thinking the Z will return in Epiosde 6.

Pete,
How much $$ and work would it be to replace an MRC with Pedders Supers? Would the MRC be saleable afterwords?
