I "borrowed" this from...G8 GXP - LS3

another 5th Gen. site/G8 board/LS1Tech.com:

http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showpo...7&postcount=19

Perhaps an LS3 for the Camaro is starting to look more possible since it looks as if it will be an option for the G8.

Who knows?...

I would hope the Camaro has more power than the G8

Here's a link to the thread with specs on the LS3

There is another link I'm thinking about that I'm going to try to find. Although that information is great, the article I'm thinking of goes even further into detail of the LS3.

That is most of it, but that's good enough

A G8 GXP sure sounds nice. It would be more practical and all....but it still comes in second to the Camaro. Still great find. I'm still of the opinion that based on Scott's hint hint wink wink to forget what we know about engines, we'll get the Gen V. Just my theory though. I wouldn't complain about an LS3.
