Talking One request if there ends up being a 4-cyl turbo option...

I only have one request for the new Camaro if there ends up being a 4-cylinder turbo engine option.....


Please, please, either make the exhaust note sound like a v8 or make it super quiet.


I don't want a kid sitting next to me at a stop light rev'ing the engine and having it sound like a lawn mower. I can deal with the fact that the Camaro "might" be built with a I4 engine, I just don't want to be reminded of it when I'm looking at the beautiful exterior of the car.

they will be able to make it quiet, but you cant make a 4 banger have the rumble of a v-8.

You could always loop a CD with the V8 rumble and turn the stereo way up!

Some I4s have a cool burbly noise. Sure its not a V8 rumble, but it is cool in its own way. Then there is the dreaded dentist's drill sound. If GM allows that, I will not be happy. We should start a fund to buy back any Camaro that gets riced out.

Surely such blasphemy will not occur?!?!


I do NOT want it to have the soup can on the back OR sound like a pissed off bumblebee! We can HAVE a Bumblebee Camaro that's a V8 and yellow with black stripes... But it can't SOUND like a bumblebee! That's just wrong!!!

omg you people are being children about this. can't you just accept that some people have their preference for their car's sound? the people with those huge tail pipes love that "weed whacker" sound, and personally i think it is cool in its own . it is fascinating that you can get in some cases 1000+ hp from a V6 (see Toyota Supra) that normally get about 220-250 hp or 600+ from a 4 banger. we love the rumble/gurgle of our gigantic V8's and some people find that to be annoying so why not just get over the news? i see it is interesting to say the least.

and i also think it'll make the car really upset when handling hard. the nose is going to be so light unless they use something to weigh it down some. i personally want a V6 SC with a possible RS package on it. if i can get that stock i'll be in heaven. the V6 version is going to make it nearly 50/50 and the SC won't do too much to upset that. i just hope with a DOHC engine that will work!!!

please just try to some people's preferences and argue about things that actually matter. i hope the I4 (if it is produced) brings a whole huge market to our beloved camaro and keeps it alive for years to come!

Also, add some bass shakers under the seats. You'll be set.

I can respect that people have different preferences. I started this thread to add a little humor into the recent posts so that everyone would hopefully return to normal and get over the comments made by Lutz. That's all. I'm guessing you missed the that accompanied the original post?

I personally don't care what a turbo car will sound like, because I'm already plotting on how to get sidepipes to work on my car, so I won't hear the other car anyways.

LOL; I'm not talking about crappy tack-on-looking ones though. I'm hoping someone can come out with a bodykit or something for the rocket panels; something like I've noticed on older Roushs and newer GTOs. I'd love to have molding rocket extensions and tips poking out just in front of the rear tires. Even if no one comes out with anything, I'll be seriously looking at fabricating something. I would've tried with my '02, but my SLP SFCs are in the way and there isn't really any place for the mufflers. Maybe, with dual exhaust, and IRS, there won't be crap like torque arms in the way to make it easier.

Please, please, please...

are you runnin a cat back system? swap to true duals and route them down each side, instead of going straight to the back, get a low-profile muffler, you could even get oval exhaust tubing to save space under the car as well, then route them out the side

If I'm confused, I apologize...

Regarding my '02, I am running a Borla catback. I don't like the clearance of true duals, and my Spohn TA just adds to the clutter under the car to make true duals possible. I wish I could, but there's no room.

I'll definately be considering the set-up you described for the new car though

but like I said, go oval.

I heard that they will offer the big exhaust tips, a HUGE spoiler on the trunk and some SICK graphics on this 4 banger.

No seriously folks, I owned a escort with a four cylinder and it was a "peppy" little car.
They are trying to apeal to every one the can, I can say I don't blame them.

I agree too, some things are just not meant to be. Taking this Camaro back to it's muscle car roots and then putting in a 4 banger and a fart can is just plain blasphemy!

What's next........are we going to put pants on the statue of liberty?

ugh.
for those of you against the 4 cyl. You are so missing the point.

The camaro needs to dominate the market. And by market I mean the entire market. Not just the GT500 class, or even the broader V8 class. This car has the potential to be all things performance. Whether its the Ricer crowd, the 30 something economy minded crowd, or the SS / Z28 gang. You tell me another car that has a legitimate shot at crossing over into so many other demographics. I don't think you can. Certainly not one that has a price range from the high teens to the low forties.

If a company came to any of us and asked, "We think we should make the camaro as diverse as possible so we can be the most sought after performance car on the streets, We want all types of performance junkies to see something they like in this camaro, what do you think?" You all know that your answer would be, "Brilliant!"

So quite acting like a bunch of freshman frat boys who think the camaro is an exclusive club.

We complain about the inability of GM to meet CAFE requirements, and when they finally hit one out of the park we bitch about how they swing the bat.

If it were me, I say GM needs an entire ad campaign dedicated to the ricer crowd. Build on the cobalt customers they already have and try to win over the Neon crowd left hanging by Dodge.
