I am waiting til I get to be behind the wheel of the 1le before final judgement. What ever I get its gonna get the full intake, heads, cam, exhaust treatment.
I am a ZO6 owner and at 9,000 miles no problems. A lot of people are having problems and it is not a joke. I am selling my ZO6 and waiting to buy a C7 when they make a comparable car. But I have two 2SSRS 13 Camaros, wife and I, auto and stick, I like both.
I know 2 Z owners that have the valve problem. But they have the warranty to fall back on. The bad thing is you are afraid to modify the car.

I know its a real problem but not as bad as the internet makes it out to be. I have 5 people in my corvette club that not had an issue with their valves. On has 65k and the other around 59k miles. The others are.sub 20k mile cars. If anything it gives you a reason to get the heads reworked and beefed up and while your at it might as well to do a cam etc.

The thing I love about the camaro is its looks, power(as long ss the 1le feels like it has it), and back seat/room. Do I need a back seat now....no I do not..but it is nice to have just incase for storage etc.

Ok, a bit off topic but want to hear the dumbest reason ever why I choose a Camaro over a Corvette (regardless of model)? Wait for it... Because I am a Transformers Nerd and my kids love Bumblebee. I would have bought a Vette but they don't make a Corevette that looks like Sideswipe yet. I know it sounds stupid but that was the reason. If they hadn't of used a Camaro in the movie, I'd probably be driving a vette. There you have it. GM's Marketing plan (2 hour commercal) worked. Now that I've owned one, I'd buy another one for 100 different reasons but the movie and the fact that was a fan of Transformers were the main reasons.

Lol wow ur right that's the dumbest lol. I actually steered away from yellow bc I didn't want it to look like a transformer. I steered away bc the wife wanted a backseat??? Now that it is modded she said no kids of hers can get in this car! So now what do I need a backseat for!!!
