it is a beautiful car and a blast to drive.
And the V6 auto is made in France But it's a good unit anyway

Does the v6 have enough power?

No it doesn't ,but neither does the V8. Hell, I've never seen a car with enough power. LOL

Well I saw a report on TV where gas is going to be over $4.00 a gallon by summer. for regular!.. I don't know about you guys but I will be very happy with the power and 30MPG I get in my Camaro then. You gotta admit it, it's a good compromise power and economy wise.

Like I said before if you are unhappy with the power buy an SS and stop complaining... Oh then you would think the V8 needs more power. admit it most of you would never be satisfied no matter how much horsepower you had. Another car out there will ALWAYS have more than you.

Check the Market place guys!!

A member is offering to trade the V8 for a V6.

Also, I can see a lot of Wanted threads for LTs !!

I got a phone call from my dealer asking me to spend a couple of minutes to chat with SS owner who hates his car and wants to switch to a V6.

In the end, be logical in your desires.... Track or road .... daily usage or occassional usage?

Its your choice.

All of the above. That is why I got the V6 and have made a few mods.

Performance, Mileage, and looks, What more could you ask for.

Wow plenty of power, any one would be proud to drive and own it.

Just remember"Drive what you can afford" and do not keep up with the JONES.

Good luck, let me know when you get it.
I think this is the only SS owner that I respect =D

I think most of them are great. There are really only a small number that bash the v6.

It's not the new engine that I'm excited about, it's the new ECU. The preliminary report on the front page a couple of days ago said they were dumping the Bosch ECU in favor of another brand. If it's any easier to tune, we might see a significant up-tick in the V6 Camaro FI Aftermarket.
