I'm quite positive that the Concept is a bottom breather, just like all LS1 4th gens... the neat coverings on the Concept just make it look different.

honestly, I dont expect that the production car will have a front scoop that feeds the air box directly... more likely, it will be a way for air to enter the front of the engine bay and channel air over the engine and out the back of the cowl hood... this would benefit the engine's cooling ability and give a certain functionality to the scoop, but I would much rather the air come from down low where the air is cooler and denser.

while I'm talking about hoods and scoops, I want to also address that the LS1 SS hood wasn't that great at getting air to the intake... there are folks that have plugged the SS hood opening and still had the car run just as fast as it did with it open... the LS1's ability to suck air in was FAR greater than what the hood could have ever hoped to keep up with... so most of the air was from down low with just a touch of added air from the scoop.
Which is exactly why I cut that big rectangular peice outta the bottom of the air box and tossed in the cold air intake...much better for breathing.

The trailer hitch will be optional for people who have friends that drive Mustangs. This way the Mustang friend can keep up with his Camaro friend (if the Camaro friend decides to tow his Mustang friend) while at the same time staying right where he belongs and will always stay, behind a Camaro.

Without the attachment, the Mustang friend will never be able to keep pace.

The camaro will most likely be on the front corner of the engine bay behind the headlights simular to the V6 Camaro Spy Pics.

Don't count on a Pontiac version, I think the G8 maybe it and you may see a future GTO but no more Firebirds, sorry to say
I agree "RAM" Air is not a a real performance application. I'm really approaching my argument form a cold air perspective. And the fiberglass hood isn't central to routing the air into the intake. That's a function of the duct from the cowl or vent to the air cleaner. And I admit some glass hoods have molded ducts in the hood designed to mate to the existing airbox.

I'm sure Volant will have a cold air intake for the Camaro. So that's what I'll get. No biggie.

Why put restrictive, ultra-curvey ducting for your intake air right over a hot engine block?

Anyways. I think the vent out front, and the ones in the back will serve ONE purpose. further beautification. Say what you will about functionality and whatnot - but I like'em.
Yes, the ducts are in the engine bay. But when the air flow is captured outside that engine bay and routed to the intake the temperature is much cooler. The same theory (sort of) as inercoolers. So I really don't care which of the two (cowl or front clip) vents are functional. I think one of them should be.

And I agree they look great and want them on the car whether they work or not. I concede they do look great.

Well, the '96 and '97 Trans Am WS6 did, in fact, have a funtional hood scoop. I'm pretty sure it was the same case for the '98-02...I don't know why they would change something like that.

This is a '97 Trans Am WS6...it shows where the hoods scoops feeds the airbox.



And Tag, thanks for the pictures of your hood!

Whenever posting new spy photos with those non-production headlights I suggest putting into the title "NOT PRODUCTION HEADLIGHTS"
People do read the title of the thread first so maybe that will stop all the headlight comments...

The trailer hitch is for when you beat the socks off of a Mustang on "Pinks" you can tow their car home with ya!

Yeah, just looked to double check before I posted and my Ram Air vents on my 1996 WS6 are open. It looks like the air is routed up and over a partition of some sort that is all molded into the hood and then the air flows into the airbox. Maybe it's like that because of rain or something I don't know, but the Ram Air is open regardless.

I totally thought that too! I think it looks better like that then on the concept.

Yeah but I dont mind the anntena at all. Remember it is also the radio anntena as well. Speaking of radios. Alot of my local stations are switching to the HD format, do you think that GM might have that as an option?

I don't mind the antenna...It's really not that big of a deal. Plus it's kinda cool lookin' I think it's neat that we can have one antenna for everything.

i love functional hood scoops... i hope that front scoop and that huge air dam do something other then just look good it would be amazing if those rear slits were functional... id rather have no slits then non functional slits... and that front scoop pretty much eliminates any idea of aftermarket hood...

You've seen they type of sneak previews that GM gives dude! The super clean, super sharp, super hi-res, glossy white car whipping around the track in two carefully chosen views. I really don't think GM releases something like that that show's 90% of everything first, and then fill in details with crummy, blurry shots of older, dirty, half disguised, beat up, test cars on the backs of trucks. Test cars are actually out there being tested. Photographers see them sometimes and now with camera-phones everyone's a photographer. (except GM employees that can't have camera-phones).

Let's be honest about the pics of the white car for a second.

Did Lutz make that order due to "aerodynamic and thermal needs" or did he do it to stick a thumb in the eye of the spy photographers who had repeatedly taken advantage of his car like it were a drunken prom date? Or did he also maybe do it to make the job easier on the engineering staff, since nearly the whole car had been exposed anyway?

thats what i planned on using it for. or if my buddy gets the challanger, ill probably have to use it to tow him too. or at least give him a pull to get his 4100lb ass movin.

I'm not sure what you're talking about... If the vents do feed the airbox then how are the vents closed?? That statement contradicts itself. I've had the pleasure of driving and examining a few different examples of the '97 Trans Am WS6...and I can ASSURE you that the "nostrils" were open (they were not modified by the owners) and fed directly into the airbox...thus the opened slits in the top of the airbox.
