Yes, I've known about the "Traco connection" for many years, superb engine builders they were. Here's an unrelated video showing a '69 Z/28 dyno pull putting down 328 horsepower and 344 lb-ft of torque to the wheels on a Dynojet dyno.

So I'm starting to get a little annoyed with the people out the in general forum that think the tweaks made to the 2014 turn the hottest car on the road (if they didn't think that they wouldn't be on the site, I'm guessing) into what they are all calling ugly or some other derogatory terms.

Seriously if a thinning of the front fascia and new tail lamps turn the car ugly then it was ugly to start with.

Compare it to the Malibu refresh. It looks nice but sure isn't making me go, "ohhhhhhhhh now it's awesome, have to run out and buy me one of those". It still has most of the deficiencies the 2013 had. They just addressed the complaints but it still has to fight the Accord and Fusion and those tweaks addressed a few drawbacks but still didn't make it a top contender, at least IMO.

It gives the car a different look to differentiate model years a little bit so that when someone comes up to a guy who just bought a 2014 and get's asked, "hey, what year is that? A 2011?"

I can see why some don't like the tail lamps, but in the entirety of the Gen 5 Camaro it didn't make the car go from hot to ugly.

There, soap box put away.

I think some are just mad that now it's going to be pretty evident that their 2010-2013 models aren't the newest thing out there anymore.

I hated the refresh at first but it's grown on me. The only thing I'm not sure about is the front chrome trim on RS models but that's what Plastidip or paint is for.

In any case, expect similar results when we start seeing 6th gen mules. "OMG it's so ugly our 5th gens are so much better our 5th gens are the best looking cars ever lolololol."
