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.

Being that the 2SS / RS runs 37-38 grand, I couldn't see paying over 45 for one. You know that the #'s get bluurrred after 40,000...lol. But I can't see the Z28 but in 1 model - FULLY LOADED!!!!!

x2.. if it stuck true to heritage I wouldn't want to pay more than the current SS for it. If it's bloatware like some people want expect to see people buying up 'a base corvette' well before the Z28. (except those that truly just want the Z28 and will pay anything)

$50k + would be an insane price. Think about it, you buy a 2SS for 37 - 38K and could drop in a supercharger for about 7K that would put you at about $44K. I think the Z28 should start at the low to mid 40s with few options.

It will be interesting to see how dealers will advertise the Z-28 at first. Im sure there will be plenty of attempted price gouging. But it wont take long for dealers to realize that they arent production limited, and like it was stated above, the 2010 GT500's are already being sold under MSRP.

Truthfully, there isnt a whole lot of market for a 45k supercharged V8. While we on this board all bow down to such line items on a new car sticker, the general public wants nothing to do with them.... which makes them harder to sell than a Toyota Camry of course!

That being said, I cant wait to see how they look when they come out. But if I had the option of buying the Z-28 or SS this year, I still would have bought the SS because I was in the market for a Daily Driver... not a supercharged 6.2L V8. Im totally happy with my car, it makes great power, I honestly dont NEED 550 hp! I know that sounds crazy to some of you! But... When the Z-28 comes out, I'll join the rest of you in bowing down in awe and respect of the newest badboy in town, GT500's beware!

Plus it will give us SS guys new options for possible upgrade from the GM catalog depending on what GM changes makes cosmetically for the Z.

It's insane the gt500 is 50 too ,but it is. You could say the samething about buying a mustang gt and supercharging it. People will pay that,so they'll charge that.
I would pay $48,465.23 and not a penny more.

You're assuming the Z will just be a supercharged LS3. I think Chevy is planning on more than that... they would have to be to complete with the GT500 from a handling standpoint.
