Of course it will go away, as does everything eventually. The 6th gen may be the end. Hell, honestly the 5th gen may be the end...who knows! It's sad to see it go, but times do change.

I think Chevelle comes back as some sort of SS.

the thing doesn't even have a/c or radio standard and you are expecting it to have caddy interior?

You're acting as it if its not available...come on now. Its an "option" (A/C), yes its cut dry, 1 speaker yada yada yada....but for the cash...you can get something a tad slower that has it all A/C, speakers, etc. If anything in my own opinion GM should have waited and released it on a shorter and lighter wheelbase. sheding 300 lbs its still a tank on wheels.

They COULD have, but they didn't. It was within their business plan to release this car for a large number of reasons, and IMO it is to set the precedence. They are grabbing the bull by the horn this year with all the High Performance releases, Corvette, SS, Camaro Refresh, and the Z/28. I think it's a smart decision to have released the Z now before the new Mustang comes out. You'll see, the car will be hard for Ford or Dodge to even touch.

Hopefully, I hope it is hard for Ford and Dodge to touch or compete with it. I mean, I may not be on the wagon for the new Z, but I am a Camaro lover...I've owned 3 of them.

With that I would think a LS7 can be built for about $4500!
LS3 has powered metal rods that cost very little to manufacture compared to the TITANIUM con-rods found in an LS7.

Example: http://www.crower.com/connecting-rods/titanium.html

You can buy 8 SBC rods for LESS than ONE titanium rod...

Compared to: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=164272

Now I'm sure GM doesn't quite pay $600+ per rod...but they don't get 'em FREE either.

Your task, should you accept, is to call your local Chev dealer and ask them the cost for EACH rod, LS3 AND LS7...and while you've got them on the phone, ask them how much each respective complete cylinder head and block sells for, and the dry-sump system for the LS7...then go back and rejig your assumptions regarding LS7 engine co$t$...

Please refer to the Sam Foose quote, below.

^....LOL, and may I ad in the absence of facts, it's always popular to theorize, hypothesize, postulate and make conjectures out of one's hat just for the sake of passing time it seems...., I for one can not wait much longer for facts, figures, and pricing to come out for the Z/28. That will thin out the herd significantly.

Here's some filler in the meantime...Will the Z/28 have Hill Start Assist?...lol...

(Might be a pricing factor, and someone's first manual transmission!...lol)

Back up camera?

Rev limiter?
