Give the Camaro the same engines as the Vette!!! Geesh!
Eventually the Gen V V8 will be in all performance applications as the mass produced performance V8 replacement to the current LS engines. The question is if GM will replace the L99/LS3 in the 5th Gen Camaro with the Gen V V8 going into the C7 or just wait until the 6th Gen Camaro. There are reasons to support the change and ones not to. But none of those reasons are due to some kind of performance conflict between a 5th Gen Camaro and the new C7.
