I'm just curious...would you have bought one if it started with 1LT equipment at $26k?

Well since he has a 2LT/RS, i figure he would
As for me, ill be pissed if a TT v6 comes within a year or so, I would feel like a ford guy who bought a 2010 Mustang.
And i rather TT the car myself to get the most out of it

What I'm saying is that IF they ever put a TT V6 in the Camaro...it wouldn't replace the NA V6, because it'd have to start higher in price...so I wondered if he'd buy it for 4-5k more than he paid for his car.

I see your point...yeah i dont know . Well hopefully it would be priced lower then the base SS.
I wouldnt pay 4k over my 2LT/RS for it thats for sure.
I think he was thinking that if it replaces the LLT all together.
If it came standerd on 1LT or 2LT models only im sure majority of people would spring for it

The LLT is GM's high-feature V6. It is an engine with bragging rights as far as performance and technology. There's no way that GM is going to kill one of its best engines in favor of a new, unproven TTV6. Any TTV6 Camaro would represent an additional engine option; therefore, it would not replace anything currently in production.

I don't think we will be seeing a TT LLT from GM. They will more likely come with a smaller V6 with turbo making about the same HP as the LLT and better mileage. SS will be smaller V8 with DI and Z28 will still have the bigger V8 with the SC. I wouldn't hold your breath on TT or SC from the aftermarket guys. I am sure someone will get one running, but it will probably be neither reliable or cost effective for most people.

The one in discussion is a 3.0L, not the 3.6L we have right now.

Cost effective is a matter of opinion. For many buyers, a high-performance aftermarket kit is better for our wallets. We don't have to pay as much for gas, insurance, or financing at the time of purchase because we bought the V6 right away. That savings can go to aftermarket parts. Even after installing those parts, we don't have to pay as much for the car or the insurance, even if fuel cost goes up. We can trap higher speeds with less overall investment in the long run.

Try doing the math this way. Add up how much gas a V8 will take after 10 years. Add the extra cost of insurance and finance charges for a larger loan.

Using the same money down and time of ownership, 10 years, compare the V6. Until the installation of aftermarket parts, the V6 costs less for fuel. Even after that time, the insurance is based on the sale price of the car, meaning that V6 owners will pay less than V8 owners.

I don't see why not. A viable FI 4-cylinder powerhouse is in the Cobalt SS. The same could be done with 2 more cylinders.

I'm no gearhead, but the LLT is not just a Cobalt engine with 2 more cylinders. The engines are completely different.

not terribly different in design overall, really, but there are a couple very significant differences:
designed with a turbo application in mind from the start
9.2:1 compression, as opposed to our 11.4:1
An ECU designed for a boosted application, compared to our all-but-completely locked-out, NA-intended, less understood ECU
