Based on the information above, the answer seems to be yes.

Is it me or does the body kit and wing look "Too Fat Too Furious" looking? The stock spoiler with rally stripes looks so much cleaner. That Camaro just looks overdone, maybe it's just because it's not painted.

I think when they refer to "-GM performance parts for LS based engines: Crate engines, Blocks, Heads, valve covers, camshafts, intake manifolds, head gaskets" they mean any parts available for LS engines will be available for the camaro as well. And I guess if they make a crate LS9 then you could order one and put it in, not from the factory though.

Do you guys think the dealer can be trusted to do something like a cam swap?

crate engines huh?

hmmmm.

I'm not clear on what that means. So If I want to pre order my camaro, I can opt for a LSA/LS9 (or what ever ) create engine to be installed at the factory????

OR I have to buy the crate motor after I've already purchased the car, and I will have two engines?

Anyone?

the latter of those options they are not going to have other engines installed at the factory, more engines means more complexity at the factory means more cost, so 3 engines from factory, none of them will be lsa's or ls9's (for now)

I believe those are for dealer installed items and typically dealer installed items are included in the trunk (I think). Something tells me that won't quite work with an LS9. I think we need someone from GM to clear up some of this stuff. This is starting to sound like a revival of the COPO system

Which would be really good news... I just don't want to pay for two engines if I don't have to. But if it is an "option" and the core engine is kept by the dealer/gm and deducted from the option engine price... You see where I am headed.

I'd like to know how this will work.

Sounds pretty cool though.

This is what happens when my imagination gets the best of me . . .

What if it is never made official that you can get a crate engine? And that you have to make a few winks and nods while at particular dealerships. But surely they wouldn't allow you to buy 'just' an engine. They'd have to throw in say an FE4 suspension. Cut out a few heavy comfort features, like the stereo, sound deadening, install some lightweight race seats. And put a couple special badges on it . . . weren't special badges ordered by GM several weeks ago?

I doubt what I'm thinking will actually happen. Maybe it was just a misunderstanding. But if it does, or something similar, then that would be like back in the day and we would have our .Z.2.8. oh I can't even come out and say it or maybe I just did

The larger wing may be a tad overdone, but I disagree about the GFX. Of course, there isn't a vehicle out there that a nice set of well done GFX can't enhance imo.

Stock spoiler and GFX looks much better to me than racerboy stripes.

Sorry, I just hate stripes... If it's not a race car, then imo it shouldn't have stripes.

LOL Ok, you got me there.

But if there were a set available for it, it would undoubtedly look at least a smidgeon better. Heh Certainly couldn't look worse.
