All depends on pricing of the car and engine options and when they will be available. Won't know for sure until Indy. Thats when I'll start making decisions.

I agree with the pricing issue. If the Z is in the mid $30's I think it will work. But the idea of the LS3 with the LG Motorsports mods is sounding pretty good. I saw a thread on it in the engine section.

I'd prefer to just go with the top dog model. It would already have great powertrain and chassis. I wouldn't have to do much, if anything, except an intake, pulley, tune, and catback. Please please please...

yup, whether it's a V6 or the V8 that I get, I'll be seriously looking into STS.
Who wouldn't want the added mileage when you don't need the amazing power. (ie. cruising around for the helluvit)

I say STS will have a kit out before if not much after the Camaro is released for the public, i personally plan for a big single turbo or twins, but i was also looking a twincharging, sounds out of the ordaniary, but a Whipple and a custom turbo kit sounds like it will make some serious hp, just like the Hellion kit for the 03-04 Cobras.

if I get the top dog after the warranty is over with I would probably do a twin turbo setup. one small turbo and one large turbo. . .

I'd love to. But, in a world where every money is pretty darn tight (can't wait till Mrs.Tag goes back to work ) i don't think it'll be me.

572

imo i'm thinking 572 or at least 502 ramjet with 6-speed...with cubes like that it will suck the turbo in the intake and spit it out the back
