Awhile back when I talked to fbodfather, he said he didn't think so but anything could change. From what I have been told, just in the same factory colors as the other Camaros.

This pissing match is getting old. I'm super happy for everyone who's mod'd their car into exactly what they want. That's no the topic of this thread, so get back on topic , don't post, or find another Thread, Section, etc. It's the same people and reading most of those posts are giving me the runs...

Pretty soon...it'll be classified as trolling (ie posting about the same stuff over and over again to bug people)...and I do believe we have a rule about that...

Point taken, and very wise though.

Camaro with an LS7 would be plenty for the Boss! They'd be using an engine that they already have and that could be the Z28 Track version! I'd vote for a stick only version of that one though!

Look how that engine works in the Z06!

If I had money to get a ZL1, I would have to sell both of the current Camaros but keep the block from the fourth gen and throw that in place of the 6.2L block in the ZL1, aftermarket exhaust, forged internals and crank the boost up

3.73 gears was announced then, but I'm sure the thread was recently updated with the auto tranny announcement yesterday. As facts come out, radz28 usually updates and is on top of it

But, of course because your mod'd ZL1 suggestions are much more positive than my negative facts nobody will bash you on this thread with rants about no warranty and such.
Some of us future ZL1 owners aren't worried about warranties...same as you. Also all you have to do is look at what CTS-V guys are doing to their cars. To see how you can mod a ZL1. That's my plan.

This is what you post in your sig.

Supercharged at over 540 rwhp

If you plan on blowing doors off ZL1's 11.7@117 aint gonna cut it...and if the ZL1 is even slightly modded. Game over.

As I mentioned in this thread http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=150606 it was obvious with that carbon fiber hood vent that the ZL1 was going to have more than 556 HP. Great news! Go ahead, astound me Chevy!
