SS with auto tranny gets the L99. SS with manual tranny gets the LS3.

I was going to do a SS1/RS, but no leather unless you get the 2SS.

The booklet says SS gets the LS3.

Am I reading it wrong?

Thanks for any info.
LS3 engine is included with the Manual Transmission on all SS models (1SS or 2SS)

L99 Is on any automatic SS models (1SS or 2SS).

I believe that the LS3 is available for the manual transmission and the L99 is for the AT.

2ss is a package and you must get it to get the leather. its an upgrade and with the upgrade comes the other luxuries. the ls3 is only with the 6spd manual.

I gotta mention that the LS3 and the L99 are 95% identical. The biggest difference is the AFM system on the L99, other than that it's same block, same displacement, almost exactly the same engine...

If I decide for white rally stripes, then I just
check "white stripe package?"


But if I want black, where is the option for black rally stripes? The other one I see is cyber gray.

Again, thanks for any info.

I have not owned a Camaro in over 15 years, could not afford a later 3rd gen when they were new, and never quite warmed up to the 4th gen until it was too late. My loss. I am not going to miss this chance.

The first place to have a website that builds your Camaro as you add options and shows the correct colors and set up is going to shut down the internet!
