For those who've ordered... Transmission/Engine Choice

So I'm just kind of curious and didn't see a poll elsewhere. Sorry if I missed it. For those of us who've ordered a Camaro (or more?), which engine/transmission combo did you choose?

Mods, if this is better suited elsewhere, feel free to move it.

Holy crap you guys are fast!

Edit: I guess I should mention that I pre-ordered the LS3, if that weren't apparent from my signature.

It's not that hard. It shouldn't be that difficult to get the hang of with the power/torque Camaro makes Either way, the auto' is certainly not a bad choice

Might want to learn how on a cheap car while you wait for yours to be built. I learned how to drive stick because I was sick and tired of all the stupid things that would go wrong in automatic transmissions. Servo springs, shift sensors, etc. You'll have a ton more fun driving manual, be safer and not have to worry so much about blowing heaps of cash when the technology controlling the shifting breaks down. If so much as a single sensor goes, they'll have to pull the entire transmission just to get to it. Learned my lesson on my V6 1998 Camaro Convertible. I learned how on a Honda Civic, while my Cobalt SS/SC was being built in 2006. Ultimately it was preparatory for the Camaro later on. Do yourself a huge favor and learn manual.
