i highly doubt a V6 will go in the Z28. However, if a TTV6 does go in, then im sure as hell happy to have an SS. All that would need to be done is adding a supercharger to the V8. Then i could push numbers that would surpass the Z28. Just like how Z06 (7.0L V8) with an added supercharger could probably show similar, if not better, performance when compared to a ZR1 (6.2L Supercharged V8).

Now all i need is that monster hood.

I thought Z/28 stood for 2 doors, 8 Cylinders.

But I would be okay with this as a new model.

people still underestimate the LLT.

Check out what the 370Z is doing with a twin turbo set up.


and some people need to check their history.
the rpo code for the SS back in the day was Z27, Z28 was just next.
It has nothing to do with 2 doors 8 cylinders

It's not the Z but you know better than most here that torque is not what a Z/28 was originally built around. They had L78's and L72's for that.

WAAAAAAAAAAAY back, there was a video clip from Jay's Garage where he had a yellow pre-production v6. Jay said "it would be nice to see how it would be with a couple of turbos mounted to it".

scroll through the videos, page 6. not sure if it can still be viewed.

Don't overestimate Jays involvement and underestimate GM's engineering and design capabilities. He had no more involvement than the "disciples" had a few years back.
