Arrow Z28, Supercharged or Not?

I mean the past Z28's weren't supercharged. So is it a fact the new Z28 is gonna be supercharged or is it just another rumor?

I think you can place your bet on the LSA.

In the past, Z28's didn't have independent rear suspensions, V6's didn't have 300+ hp, and SS's featured big blocks. Things change

nothing has been confirmed. . . so who knows for sure other then the team members building the dang thing.

rumors place the LSA in the thing. but a stupid dealer said the LS9 in the vette is turbo charged to 630 hp and will be in the Z. also he said the auto SS has the same engine as the base vette. . . and we all know dealers are always right. . .lmao.

I think it's a safe bet that it will be S/C. I think it's great that GM is stepping up the game for the Z to compete with the GT500.

I would rather punish others without a supercharger.

At most a DI would bump the HP from 426 to 450.


That is if the Z-28 ever see's the light of day

DI would be worth more than 24 hp on a 6.2L engine ... its worth more than that on 3.6L. At any rate, a DI Z28 should be available at about the same time as a DI SS

that's interesting because an L92 (6.2 L engine) that was converted to a DI setup put down north of 475. I'm willing to bet an entire engine designed with DI in mind would put down 500 easily done. and taking a wild guess that it would have a forged rotating assembly since the 3.6 does and other DI engines lately have.

seems to me you are just being a negative nancy. . .the Z28 will see the light of day. just like the camaro did.

I'm actually waiting for someone to race a new V6 against a first generation V8.

500 is about what I would figure for a 6.2L DI. Maybe a little less, maybe a little more. But its a good ball park estimate. However, I doubt GM will release a DI 6.2 anytime soon. If I were them, I would drop the displacement down to 5.7L or possibly even 5.3L.

direct injection, as opposed to port or throttle body injection.
