buuuuuuuut..... if gm wanted to make a limited run SUPER BAD ASS STOMP A HOLE IN YOUR COMPETITION'S ASS Z28 and decided to put an LS9 in it....well, there's your 650hp right there.


tho i agree that its very unlikely that they will do the LS9 in the Z28, someone will do it... whether it be GM or not

2011 Z28

A friend of mine insists he saw somewhere a Z28 model will be produced in 2011. I thought the Z was dropped and only SS will be used, can anyone clarify this for me.

Thanks in advance.

PS: hoping to get black/black SS no sroof

I believe the "official" stance is that there will be no Z28. But we can hope! We seem to think/hope they will make one in a few years, but most likely not in 2011.

No Z28 at the start of regular production.

After that it's up for grabs. Nothing official.

Well if GM does not make the Z28, I'm sure there will someone who can install the LSA engine and call it the famous Z28, just slap in the logo, so there you have it no worries, if you have the money go for it why wait for GM ,

not everyone is just wanting the LSA dropped in and some badges thrown on. . .but if someone did I wouldn't be too upset. just don't think badges should be thrown on just any ole car. . .

There's a big difference between GM doing it and some guy at the shop doing it. If GM builds a Camaro with the LSA in 2 years and some guys does it next year, expect GM's to be more reliable. The guy will have a nice clone, but it won't have all the R&D behind it.

Thanks! If I coulda' gotten bigger wheels at the time, I would've. I have managed to run 335s on the rear though without too much "massaging."

Can I get an AMEN! I'd feel a lot better about a car GM has touted to run around the 'Ring without incident than some git-r-dun stabbing the engine between the strut towers. I'm keepin' my faith

Yes GM should be the one to make Z28, however if there was an official statement by GM that there would be no Z28 for the future. lets hope not. I would think that if you have the money, you can get the top notch mechanics to build you one.

I think that may have been a tad unnecessary. Most people who build custom cars, much less the engines themselves, are very respectable and educated people. Though there will be some slightly less umm...mechanically inclined people who will probably try this.

I'm not suggesting there aren't many highly qualified people who could totally build a great engine, however, considering all the testing and R&D that go into powertrains by GM (along with other companies,) I wouldn't feel nearly as good going with someone without all that engineering and technical support building a car to last 100K+ miles. I did not intend for it to come across otherwise, but I mean really, how many people are really out there that are truly qualified to build powerplants as good as GM? I think there are car companies out there that don't build to such standards. To each his own, this observation was simply only MVHO.

Given the springboard the original Transformers movie provided for our beloved Camaro, is it reasonable to think that TF2 will be used as a launch for the Z28? After all, we have seen the pictures of the revised Bumblebee front end and rims floating around. Makes me wonder...

What if..........




The Z28 was built w/ a less expensive, non force fed, purely aspirated "no replacement for displacement" engine....

Can anyone tell me the difference between the cost of an LSA versus ....say.....something w/ 505hp? This is just thinking out loud, folks....

Bah, lets just make an LSB (B standing for Big) with 9.0L displacement and call it a day.
- Xanthos

P.S. - Turn key LS7 on jegs is 13,000. I can't find an LSA (I admit I didn't take THAT long looking though...)

I know...but that is to be purchased outright.

I want to know (and I'm not calling you out specifically on this one) how much it would run to put the LSA vs. the LS7 in the new Camaro. A supercharger on top of a 6.2 ltr would add thousands. So, let's say an LS3 is 7k....about right. Add on, oh....5 grand (ROUGH ESTIMATE) and you are looking at 12k. What if the engine costs more....the SC costs more? But, the LS7 could actually cost less if mass produced???

I'm just playing a guessing game here...>AND...I want to see if it would work.
