Z/28, will it have a forged rotating assembly?

I've searched around and didn't see a solid guess/answer. I also looked up the cts-v and google is giving me alot results about forged wheels.

The LSA (CTS-V engine) does not have forged internals, so assuming that becomes the Z28 engine one day, I doubt seriously they will change it significantly.

rayhawk is correct. The CTS-V LSA engine still has hypereutectic pistons, so not forged internals. Only the LS9/ZR1 comes forged.

I would expect they'll shove the CTS-V drivetrain in. I did find a motor trend article today, CTS-V has pm rods and hyper pistons. Thanks for the quick replys guys.

you mean this one

http://www.motortrend.com/features/a...rns/index.html

from Feb of 2009?

or maybe this one from Sept of 2009?

http://www.motortrend.com/auto_news/..._go/index.html


thats the thing with certain publications... scratch that.... most publications.... is that they'll print anything to draw a crowd/viewers. if they are wrong, they'll retract their statements.

no harm no foul. but as of yet, there is no official confirmation of a Z28 with or without an LSA. for that matter, there is no official confirmation of a Z28.

Although I really would like to see the Z/28 have forged internals, I just want the damn thing produced so I can buy one. Beggers can't be choosers I guess.

I heard that it's going to have a new engine with forged internals and direct injection. a little birdy told me.

LSA shares many features from LS9, like the forged crank, heads, block, and oil spray piston cooling. True, it doesn't have forged steel rods or pistons, but they do have PM rods which should hold up to a fair amount.

A lot of the perception surrounding "forged" items is...imo...exaggerated. Hypereutectic pistons are not inferior, rather intended for different purposes. Besides, it's all a moot argument anyways because FEW people will ever need/want/go beyond 600-700 crank hp, and the LSA can handle those levels easily.

Wouldnt be a big deal to me since i wouldnt plan on doing much more than a cam and exhaust swap on anything id buy, my only prefference would be an N/A engine over an FI engine, the new LSX454 caught my eye but idk if it has forged internals or not, maybe i'll look into that...

Yep, forged pistons and rods \m/

We know too little about the Z28, including whether it exists for certain, to know something this specific.
