I'm pretty sure it's still there...just not shown, I guess.

Just for my own assurance...the reluctor wheel is the thing on the Crank that tells the computer where the shaft is in it's rotation...right?
if not, then disregard the above...and I'll delete the post.

yes, dragoneye, thats what it is and the LS9mhas one just like every other v8 GM uses now. its mounted to the rear of the crank in its normal position. look close, youll see how theres a portion of material visible near the floor in the pic when the counterweight is closer to the ceiling, thats the reluctor wheel, notice it has holes in it

I'd LOVE to build my own engine!!! I know that I couldn't do as good a job as the machines and employees at the plants, but that would be so awesome!

That would be an awesome project. I don't know if I'd trust my life or my car to an engine that I built myself though.

Looks like fun. Knowing me...I'd have those leftover parts we all ask about..."what's this? where's it go?" lol....No. That would be just plain fun to build.

They make everything into a crate motor, I think. Ecotecs, Northstars, V6's and the LS series are all availible through GMPP

I can guarantee that it will be a crate motor... because if the engine goes into a GM car or truck, they have to make replacements for it in case an engine part fails and blows the engine while under warranty... all GM engines are/were available as crate motors... its just that some are priced so high that nobody in their right mind would want one unless you were getting it for free under warranty

Shouldn't be all that difficult swaping a chevy small block for a chevy small block. And from what I've seen the engine bay for the Camaro is massive, though the wheel wells seem a bit big, there is lots of space up front. Now, craming one into an Solstice or a Sky would be a bit of a stretch. But they did it with the LS7 so anything is possible

haha yeah ... I seen a guy pack a LS7 in his camaro on youtube. How awesome would it be to have a "Sleeper" and look like a v6 on the outside, but burn the paint off the car behind you when you take off

I wonder if there are going to be any supercharger upgrades through GMPP. For example (assuming there will be an SC model,) if the car comes with the same blower that's on the CTS-V, will one be able to obtain the SC off the 'Vette and stick in in the car? Will there be pulleys available to spin the SC higher?

I can't friggin' wait!

GMPP has offered SC upgrade kits before -ecotecs and 3800's for example, and so I'm sure they will again on this new breed of supercharged cars

But i have a source inside GMPP that says these will be available as crate engines 2 months before the camaro launches.

how sick would that be in a camaro.

Dude I am either buying this or the LS7 for my camaro in like a year and eight months if they don't do a factory Z-28 for 2011! Because I'm tired of waiting! Anyone guess how much it would cost?
