GM offers a brake package for the V6

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).

Those options would push a V6 Camaro into SS pricing territory but if somebody wants it, why not? If this was offered on the upcoming 6th gen I would definitely go for it.

Chevrolet Performance now offers a variety of street-level performance parts for the Camaro, both V8 AND V6, including the 1LE suspension system, ZL1 brakes, SS brakes for V6 Camaros, the underhood crosstower brace and more.

Best of all, unlike aftermarket parts these components won't void your factory warranty and they are designed, engineered and validated by the team that engineered your Camaro. The Camaro community asked for these parts and Chevrolet listened!

You can download the Chevrolet Performance catalog at: http://www.chevroletperformance.com/Parts/catalog.jsp

I don't see why there shouldn't be such options available for the V6. Plenty of people I know gave me a hard time b/c the 1SS I ordered was 38K. I can't tell you how many times I heard, (and still hear), why didn't you just buy a 2SS? As if somehow the 2SS was faster.

I always reply the same way, that I do not like leather, especially the leather GM uses in the Camaro. I also don't care for the 4 pack gauges. I like the open space below the audio and HVAC which is where I put my phone. The only plus for a 2SS was the heads up display. Which even though cool, is kinda gimmicky.

It's stupid to suggest that GM should not make Recaros and performance suspension upgrades available for the V6 b/c doing so would increase the price to the level of a 1SS.... and your point is? So what if adding these things make it the same price as something else. If you were to add the 1LE upgrade to the SS it would still be more money than a V6 with those options, right? That's as dumb as saying, why add a 1LE pkge to a 1SS, you could buy a 2SS with that money?

Buy what you like.

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.
I am not kidding at all. Just another proof that the V6 can use it is At the fest for the ride and drive event they had a V6 vert with the 1LE suspension and the ZL1 break kit and that thing had no body roll what's so ever and was very resposnive. The stock FE2 suspension that comes on the V6 does not handle worth a crap and has a ton of body roll. I am not talking about having the suspension for planting the power to the ground on a hard launch but for using it when you go through curves quickly. You have to remember that a V6, SS, and 1LE can all go through curves as the same exact speed the 1LE suspension will just keep it composed.

With all of this being said if a package like this where to happen they also would need to add the Brembos to the package since on the V6 you can not add the FE4 sway bars without being very close to rubbing to the breaks.

Just sayin', there are plenty of inexpensive suspension up-grades for the V-6 either after-market, SS parts new or used, sway-bars, ...whatever...Anything can be improved....

Actually I may help my V-6 buddy put on SS springs and shocks this weekend...

He doesn't really need them....Stock he's faster on auto-x than a lot of us SS guys...lol...
