I like this compromise. If they kept the LS7 it would be a nice option for the SS too.

Anyways in response to this thread, may i be the first to smack my forehead...if you can already buy a 425hp Camaro what the hell is all the hype about a new one, lol, so what its a turbo V6 the V8 does that with not a damn thing attatched and thats where the bragging rights go, lol, and besides there wont be much weight savings, the V6 isnt THAT much lighter than the V8 and even then all the turbo stuff will even it out plus there'll still lower torque, the V6 is the economy car, not the performance car, stop trying to make it the performance car and all you tuners stop whining about it, this is a CAMARO not a friggin Civic, go rice out your 92' import-mobile...and if they do make a twin turbo V6 it better be the base engine for LT models (like Ford's doing with the Mustang) and that V8 better get the same 100hp boost, otherwise im totally not feeling the hype...plus the Z/28 needs to be the performance forerunner of the group, skim down all the luxury items (back seats stay, sorry guys this isnt a corvette its still a pony car) the most i'll let slide is leather, sunroof, and Bose radio, other than that throw all the other dumb accessories out cause they're making these cars cost too much as it is and its just the really retarted picky people who want them, us who are still into muscle cars and not luxury/muscle cars can handle having to put our key in the column and twist to start the engine...i know its a stretch, i know, but trust me, it does in fact work...

LOL...*end rant*
First of all the 396 SS had (a supposed) 375 HP. It has been posted numerous times that the DZ302 was underated, however even with the crossram and headers it was no more than 350 -360 HP (remember all HP ratings were gross back then). The under rating was due to insurance premiums not racing. The 450+ HP ratings were the race cars in the Trans Am series. Don't believe me look it up.
I am a BIG 69' Z/28 fan, but I'm tired of the myths that continue.

If it gets SS-like performance on regular gas, and maintains V6-level mpg, then it will have the best of both worlds. For those who want more, GM could get to work on a twin-turbo, direct injected, V8 option.

Im trying to figure out what exactly the point would be......

Anyone have any good ideas?
Comparable to the SS but with a few more miles to the gallon?

I'd like to see it. In fact, if it became a reality we might have a great alternative to EcoBoost.

Yeah, you're correct. I was saying although it was used before, Z/26 to inicate it being a 6. Don't recall what it was right now, but I think there was a Z/24 in something.

z22 was also the RPO code for the RS package back in the day too. tho in '76 it changed to Z85 for the RS package. but there were also many years where there wasnt a specific RPO for the package because the car came as an RS, Z28, SS, LT, etc as the trim level for that year

Z24 was for the cavalier

I'd very much like to have the performance of the SS with the gas mileage of the V6, I don't really care what they call it, its just a name, the numbers are what matter.

to you its just a name. to many others, its Heritage. its passion, its love, its more than the name.

and 425hp from a v6 is not the same as 425hp from a v8
