I just had to.................................

Understand the braking, handling, cosmetics, etc. would be the same.

For those wanting more power consider the upgradability of each offering, not I want an LS9 or an LS7.

FYI a DI V8 wouldn't need as much diplacement to make the same power. Therefore, making it smaller and lowering weight.



So try a lighter weight 5.5L DI V8 pushing right over 450-460HP at the crank.
Not that I know anything.....



Just saying.....

Now that there's a poll, can we edit it? Prices aren't necessary to determine interest or preference in any of these products.

Leave a comment stating your choice or opinion.

However I think price is VERY relevant to most.

It is still a small block V8. I believe only the combustion chamber would differ.
Any weight difference would be nill.

a DI v8 at 6.2 liters would surely be over 500 hp. especially if 5.5l is pushing 470 in the GT2 class.

I'm still wondering why people are even wanting a a 500 HP motor. The only thing that is going to compete with the GT500, which we all know will be it's main competition, would be an LSA. Unless they perform some sort of miracle and get 570 HP+ out of TTV6 set-up, the only thing that will be able to reach that sort of HP, at a reasonable cost, would be an LSA. A 450 HP DI would barely be a HP increase at all from the SS...

Consider everything being the same? DI V8 has less parts to break...no turbos to foul up, fail, etc....not SC to throw a belt on...etc.

I'd LOVE to have the LSA. LOVE IT.

a simple tune could get you the DI V8 with an SS.

I like the LSA...in fact, I love it...everything about it is perfection to me...

BUT -- I would buy the SS as it is, if it were called the Z/28. (I'd modifiy it to just under 500 hp, and upgrade the suspension, and call it a day). The raw power is not what I'm interested in, its the handling, and the style. If they make the Z/28 with an LSA...I'll have to "live with the extra power"...how ever will I survive?

SO -- I want a DI V8, because I want that amount of power, I want maximum efficiency, and I want that V8 sound....something a TT V6 can never replicate (it can get close, though...)



(I would like to see all of the above in the Camaro lineup, however...but my vision of a Z28 is relatively specific...)
