i know im gona HAVE to get a ss version of the camaro. i dont have a complete understanding of the difrent motors in the two versions. if i wanted to modify the stock motors,,,which one could be pushed harder without any modifications to the bottom end? and how far can they be pushed?

Basically there are three engines offered, a V6 and two V8's, an L99 and an LS3.
The two V8's are offered on the 1SS and 2SS packages with the L99 paired with the 6sp automatic and the LS3 paired with a Tremec TR6060 6sp manual transmission.

As far as I know, the LS3 would be the best base to customize with power-adders.

Gotcha. Well I think you might have to wait until some 2SS owners get their cars and play around a little bit or maybe some one a little more engine and tranny savvy could come in and help. Until then you can check out the HPE700 Camaro with 705 HP an 717 lb-ft torque by hennessey here

Ok... either way do you mind me throwing it out there so he can look and maybe just maybe make his own decisions? Thanks. I dont care either way because I could never afford it. He did ask for vehicle limitations though and that kind of gets him poitned in the right direction. Relax..

welcome, research as much as you can to make a reasonable choice. Most of us here are power junkies and the V8 is the weapon of choice. The V6 is is no slouch and as milk says, there will be all kinds of mods for that motor that will make a lot of V8's look retarded.
I find it funny you drive a boob

The SS emlems do not go away, the badges on the exterior will be red instead of chrome. The mail slot is on all SS's and is not on any non-SS's

no if they take off the mail slot and the ss on headrest it means they are downgrading you to a LT/RS

You should be able to get a SS/RS without downgrading.

the SS has white SS emblems
the SS/RS has red SS emblems NOT RS emblems

Yes you need to change it to the RS. All the chrome badging will still be there, just it will be red, and the embedded SS emblems in the seats will be there RS or not. I would guide your salesman to this forum, it sounds like they could use some info!
