I'm thinking a Mustang Boss equivalent.

Vacancy lights are on at Wixom for the LS7, let's order them up. From the pics and relased details about the ZL1 rear axle housing, axles shafts etc..., I'd say grab them up from the parts bin. Trans...etc..., modified TR 6060 MG9 from the ZL1. Why bother to invest R&D $ when it's been already done. That's the beauty of GMPP and Chevy design and engineering. Chevy Runs Deep. The only thought I can come up with beyond the already shelf available hardware, would be tinkering with the tranny gearing and rear axle ratio to optomize screw spin and keep the driveline within the power band for the ultimate factory road racing experince. Granted EPA, MPG, and associated luxury taxes...etc...prohibit fully unleashing the beast. I say unleash the beast. Make 3,500 units and we will gladly pay the fine.

Body style-TF3 minus the ricey spoiler. Basically a 1LE with a tweaked LS3. Outfitted with LS trim package should start at 40k, 2SS at 44k. Also a new style rim and spoiler.

Interesting thoughts. T3 hood would not be practicle for a N/A motor. I like cold fresh air, ducted cold air intakes should be located at the optimal locations. That hood will not serve any legitimate purpose to achieve that end. Sans the rear wing. ZL1 style dove tail or equivalent rear spolier with special rear diffuser and front splitter with F/X package a must <ala ZL1>. Specially designed wheels....why not? Cad Cam now a days can make anything from computer to lathe. I like the look of CF though...it is soooo mesmerizing...!

Great thoughts in your reply, lots of other good thoughts in this thread. Absolutely the rear gears and tranny ratios need to be optimized, about the only thing I see that's not already in the Chevy parts bin is Z/28 emblems.

Agreed, so from Lowdown and 2ndChance's blueprint all that we need to do is figure out what the emblem should look like?

I don't see much else that is needed, the Chevy parts bin is overflowing with options to use! A refresh of the first gen. Z/28 would do it for me, I'm sure there are plenty of other ideas out here though.

Well, being the odd duck that I am, I'll suggest "badge- and stripe-delete"! Something akin my avatar. I've always been drawn to the "sleeper" look...

For aero I think the ZL1 front-end, front spoiler, rear spoiler, and side skirts would be perfect given all the hours spent developing them. It will also help spread the cost of the ZL1's development. That being said to differentiate it from the ZL1 I would not use the same hood or grill. The hood as Old School has mentioned should optimize the (dare I say it) LS7's intake. Personally I love the Hot Wheels hood. The grill should be a more flattened design less angled to each side. This should provide better aerodynamics. The grill area should be blacked-out like the Hot Wheels Camaro, along with the tail area.
