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)
