Do not think it would be advantageous or cost effective for that to be an option

I think the Recaros should be an option for anyone who wants them. If someone wants to spend more money - let 'em. I didn't know they weren't available for the V6.

As far as the 1LE, if someone actually wanted to pay extra to add a lot of that stuff to the V6, why not let them?

All money is good money. But I own my own business

If anything it would only bring the cost of the seats down, better quantity discount for GM.

If you have the money I don't see why it shouldn't be an option.

Would have been less work buying it with 1le instead of installing after the fact lol and yes we are a 1le'd (suspension only) V6
And of course anyone would love those seats

There used to be a performance package that upgraded 4thgen V6s to V8 suspensions. It's not crazy to think that this kind of package could be provided with a smaller engine. It certainly would fit.

..there is no worth in doing that. There is not enough torque or HP in the V6 to warrant it.

Why do you believe there is not enough torq? In an auto cross event the stock FE2 suspension will not handle the cornering. And before you say something a V6 can actually be just as fast or quicker than a V8 at an auto cross event with the right driver.

I think it would be great if a v6 owner can upgrade there car to a 1le package and maybe a Brembo brake package would be nice. The Recaros are a must package but I think the reason why they are not on the v6 is that Recaro can not produce that many seats.

Shurely you are joking....the stock SS was weak with it's underpinnings for the LS3 motor. Hence, they introduced the FE4 1LE package, now, the torque and HP from the LS3 powerplant can be transpanted to the ground in a more form and fit function where it can utilize the power. The addition of this package to a V6 is nothing more than an overpriced dress us addition to justify a bridge to nowhere. In otherwords, having something to brag about nothing. The end does not justify the means.

Ford has a V6 performance package on their mustangs, so why don't GM follow suit? Not everyone wants to buy a gas guzzling V8.

OK. A performance upgrade may be warranted for the V6 model. But it is not the FE4 1LE package that the SS has.

At the fest Al O. mentioned to me there is a v6 version equipped with 1le like parts that is being tested.

I would find it interesting that one would want $5000+ worth of options (1LE + Recaros), but not want to at least get the 1SS.
Most dealers have a hard time selling $2000 seats because most regular car folk are not willing to pay that for them.

I remember reading something about this a while ago. GM has made every possible package in the 5th gen Camaro except for a V6 Camaro suspension handling package. All they really need to do is install 1LE suspension parts (plus wheels/tires) on a V6 Camaro. I bet it would sell well and have similar track times compared to a modern 1LE (due to lighter weight).
