Z28 Coming Soon

I can't say where I heard this, but maybe it is old news. Should see the Z28 next year.

Everyone knows what GM is planning to put under the hood, correct?

Hmm. I heard it was a 6 1/4 hp Briggs and Stratton? I could be wrong.

GUYS, Jim is VERY valid and tests cars for GM prior to them coming out. HE IS VERY good info source. I have known him for YEARS over at the Corvette forum...

I am guessing TT V6 like the Jay Leno car.. Why else would they team up with him...

He said the TT 4Cy was close. If that is the case I am VERY happy with our choice...

SC LSA, big brakes, lighter, better suspension would be sick....

While a FI V6 would be lighter and make for a somewhat more balanced car, I just don't see the Z28 Camaro demographic going for that. I'm pretty sure GM knows this.

I'd be shocked if it wasn't the LSA.
