But I have yet to play with a 5th Gen.

And yes GTs of any year are pretty sad, even Mach/Cobras are still quite lacking (save the mid 2000's Mach 1).

Again, I don't think the LLT will beat the LS1, but in topend, which is what we were talking about, it'll compete.

Your words. Topeend, and with the 6m, or A6, the LLT does compete.The LLT shouldn't win, it's smaller, less hp, less torque, yet it competes. It's a strong motor, period. The LS cars are badass, and I will take nothing away from them, but until you get to drive the LLT, I think you need to reserve judgement. I'm sure you'll need the SS to be happy, lol, already owning a LS1 powered 4th gen, but the LLT isn't a wuss. It's kinda cool how it can compete against the bigger dogs. It even beats a few, lol. I know my LLT is quicker and will outrun my CVPI I drive everyday on duty. By a bunch, lmao.

I simply wanted to get some opinions on the "seat of your pants" feel from those that have driven a 4th gen LS1 & 5th gen V6. Lets keep in mind and respect the fact that the responses are going to be subjective, everyone's opinion is different!

Agreed, but by "seat of the pants" feel, the LLT won't disappoint! I love sitting at a stop light and smashing the gas in my LLT and feelng the front end lift and the car suck me into the seats, which BTW, are the most comfortable seats I have ever had in a car. It's a permagrin moment for sure

Overall, the LS1 powered cars are some of my favorites, ever. The LS motor platform is a monster, and those who don't love it or respect it, well, they just don't know. That said, I'm really impressed with this LLT platform. I can only imagine what the SS and it's LS3 motor feels like, or even the L99, as I haven't had the privilage to drive one.

2002... I remember shopping the Camaro... even the SS... while the straight line performance was crazy, i wasn't sold on the rest of the car.. handling, size, interior, low to the ground.. etc... I ended up with a Mustang GT...

This time around I went with the Camaro! There is just so much more I like about the 5th Gen!!!
