The z/28 parts on a no option gutted V6 Camaro would probably be TOO much fun.

Are the Recaro seats that same seats that are on the 2014 ZL1? Or are the Z/28 seats different from those Recaros?

Recaro's will be awesome, along with the rear diff. Both are going to be really pricey though..

The Recaro's are different. Manual adjustment, no motor for less weight!

This really interest me. Any Idea when these will be available.

Me too. Hope it's available for sale uninstalled by dealer.

I'm curious to see how much they are going to sell the 'Tri Y' exhaust manifolds for. I can't see that being a hot item. I'm sure I could go Kooks for as much or less with superior performance.

As a 1LE owner, I'd like to have the • Camaro Z/28 Helical Differential, and the manual Recaro seats.

Everything else I'll count on the aftermarket thank you very much.

The aftermarket does a good job of supplying alternatives to OEM parts....Now the same R&D and testing is not applied in the aftermarket, but if the price point for OEM surpasses that of quality aftermarket pieces most consumers will look to the aftermarket.

My predictions: (no basis, just guesses)

Intake: $500 (Too many proven alternatives to set the price any higher)
Z/28 Suspension Package: $3500 (Good coil overs can be had at this price)
Recaro Z/28 seats: $1799 each (No competition for a seat with airbags, but race minded individuals can get a good Recaro race seat installed for less)
Z/28 Manifolds: $750 (again, too much competition out there to price them any higher and expect them to sell.)

Matt
If the suspension is $3500 thats not that bad. However, how will it work with with our heavy corners and tires?!?!? Hmmmmmm.... I wish we could see some laptimes or data showing how they perform on our cars.

I have to have that diff and cooler...... what an awesome time to tell my wife that my diff blew up!!!

Excellent question. I would like to see the recommended tire setup for that kit.

Yes. Cause it's not available. It is a restricted part available to Z/28 owners only. CTSV brakes will be plenty of upgrade for me.

Glad I got the Recaros when I did. I can't live without them and would be butthurt if I waited for these soon to be prices
...
I'm in the market for headers and CAI and I'll just wait for the prices to be revealed. I'd love to keep my warranty and have these parts warranted thru GM. It's a win-win for me.

Good coilovers can be had at that price, well kind of but honestly very few if any suspension manufacturers valve their coils good enough for the Camaro as GM does. Not many are going to be a good match for ours cars at 160 mph.

Very interesting option: Speedometer calibration would be needed and not sure if computer changes required for ABS integration. Would like to see dragstrip time difference between stock rear ratio and the 3.91. Available with automatics?

one thing to consider about the header package is im sure they would have to tune it and you will get to keep the gm warranty.
I know at least that's the only thing holding me back from buying an aftermarket set.
with only 1200 miles on my car im hesitant on buying a set and having to tune and something going bad on me so early.
