You are forgetting the C7 will start being buit in 2012 and will go up in price point.

I would buy it at any price up to about $50 grand MSRP.

But I think they're going to come in closer to 45-47k to directly compete with the GT500.

I've said it before...and don't think I'm nuts...but an interesting marketing strategy would be to release in 2012...call it the 45th anniversary edition z28...and sell it for $45k

As long as it's with in 5 grand of the gt500 + or - and it's faster then I'm on board.

Since I don't race (street or otherwise,) quite frankly, 400 hp is enough for me. I really don't know how to answer the poll, though. I don't think I'd pay over $40K for a Camaro, no matter the specs, but I plan on keeping my 2SS/RS for at least the next 15 years - so who knows how I'll feel in 15 years?

So do I put "not interested," because I'm definitely not buying a Z for the next 6 years while I pay off my current car - or "not over 40K?"

If the only major changes for the Z28 is the engine, other then minor appearance stuff I could not justify paying over 40K for it, any day of the week. Its simply not worth it. You can get a well set up 2SS/RS for 36K. For an additional 4K the only major component you would be getting is a different engine, most likely the blower engine from the CTSV. Wich IMO is a pile of crap, who wants a cast internal shortblock on a factory blower engine? Not me. So figure it this way. 2SS/RS going for 36K, figure the stock LS3 is worth about 4500? So add additional $4k for the blower engine out of the caddy....

But we all know it will be some crazy ass inflated price. Personally I think if you buy a camaro for 50K instead of a C6 there is somthing wrong with you. Vette is quite a bit lighter and rides a whole lot nicer. Granted it wont have any over the top options for that price but the cockpit of a vette is nicer then the camaro even in base form in my oppinion.

.... I thought the LSA was forged? The LS9 I am pretty sure is forged, I had thought the main difference between the LSA and LS9 was choice of Blower.

The LSA is not forged... Hyper Aluminum Pistons... The LS9 is a different animal.

If it cmes the way I want it to, I'll pay as much as I can afford, which won't be more than $50K.

Yes and no. The crank and rods are forged, the pistons are hypereutectic, for NVH. But the pistons ARE stronger than stock LS3 pistons...so don't think the engine's just an accident waiting to happen. Read the LSA thread I put up for lots more information.

As I said above, Cast aluminum pistons. Im aware of exactly what the crank and rods are. I had a 09 CTSV prior to my camaro, I traded it in for the SS.

Although a tad stronger then a stock LS3, it is not what it should be. Any stock forced induction engine should have forged rods and pistons at very least. This is where GM NEEDS to take a lesson from ford.

I never would have felt "comfortable" taking that LSA shortblock over 600rwhp. Although people do it everyday with stock LS1,2,3,6 engines, it doesnt sit well with me.... This is why when I went turbo on the SS the first thing to go in the car was a 6.0 LQ9 Iron block with a callies/wiesco rotating assembly.

That is kinda what i was tinking, but i wonder if GM would do that since the Camaro was out of production for a couple years. You know that will be the target of most Fan boys and magazines.
