If a turbo on a V^ was as good an idea as you seem to think, then GM wouldn't have made a production V8 Camaro... They have a turbo V6 instead if it would truely be as powerful as the LS3 in the same price range.

You have to ask yourself one thing...and just why did GM do this? To gauge interest?

To make buying a V6 without a turbo more appealing?

shits and giggles?
they were board and wanted to spend money?
they wanted to piss off us Z28 lovers by sticking a TTV6 in a z28 looking shell?
becuase there isnt any twin turbo muscle cars yet...?

see... here I thought that Jay Leno built this car with the help of GM. not GM built his car then showed him what it was. it was Jay's idea for the TTv6. just fits with his mentality about cars.

Think like GM (or any of the so called big 3, they are all looking in this direction) not like a consumer.

Don't know how much input he had as he said this was the first time he had seen it (SEMA).

just because it was the first time he had seen it doesn't mean he didn't tell them what he would like to see. and then they did it.

True, he didn't see the design at all. But when it came to the powertrain, they wanted to know what he'd like in his namesake of a Camaro. And he set a very clear goal for the team who mocked this car up: High Power + High Mileage + Track focus.

I think the more options the better - period. I'd be super-cool if it were the 60s again where you could make your own car with options for everything. I know it's not feasible today, but that would've just been really cool, if you as me

It just can't.
i second this.

i always seen the z/28 as the better suspension/twisty car with a little grunt, but the SS was king, the highest model. i second you with the z/28 possibly getting the TTv6 or possibly the LS3, bigger brakes/more rugged suspension, perhaps lighter wheels, maybe lighterweight hood/trunk, and throw an LS7 or LSA in the SS and let it be king, as the SS deserves.

why does the SS deserve that? the SS is nothing more then a watered down name plate slapped on every line of car they have mad. weather it deserved it or not. the Z28 has always been a camaro and will always be a camaro. nothing else can lay claim to being a Z28.

and why can't the Z have more power? dyno's showed it was close if not more back in the 60's. so why oh why can't it be more powerful, better handling, and better overall car then the SS?

I used to think the same thing until I looked at the specs from the late 60's and early 70's. The Z 2/8 had a higher performace level than the SS did.

Whatever car you want on top (SS or Z/28) LS7 would be a nice addition.

TTV6 well not sure where it would fall maybe a 2LT/SS

It is possible, he says, but I think a better question to ask would be regarding a forced induction V6. A TTV6 is a very specific product. A V6 with forced induction could imply everything from a singly supercharger of any description to multiple turbochargers or even nitrous oxide. This would have yielded either a response of "likely" or "not likely" as opposed to "perhaps."

Not my thing but it would be cool to see. As long as they still offer an F/I top dog V8 to compete with the GT500, then I'm all for it.
