Do we have confirmation of a 427 in a Camaro? If we do, I agree it would be very limited production. If it is a LS7, I would bet it is an upgraded handling SS replacement that would be mass production like the SS. That is all I am saying.

Again, if it is a 427, all bets are off. And I would be standing in line for it.

this is as it should be in my opinion. the Z/28 used very limited in relation to the SS. In 67 they did not build many at all. in 69 they build quite a few.

when they killed the SS is 1973 then they started mass producting the Z28.

the Z28 then became basically a generic mass produced marginally perfroming car.

The lure goes beyond the name. Because of EPA emissions standards getting a 427 with a lumpy cam passed is currently not possible with the technology avilable. The idle is too dirty. That is why you see so many FI performance engines. There may be a direct injection big cam NS 427 down the road, maybe. If you want a 427 N/A from the factory the Z/28 is most likely the last of the breed.

Limited Availability + The Last of the Lumpy Cam Big Blocks + Z/28 name = Premium Price and Low Volume

I have heard that there will be a DI 7.0

Not in 2014. Not that soon...the Gen V engine architecture hasn't even made it into a car, yet, in "basic" 6.2L form...

Still...a low-number of expensive LS7-powered factory 5th-gens rolling around...if any car were to have value down the road, my bets are it's that one!

I figure that a NA LS7 would be rated HP wise inbetween the LS3 and the ZL1's SC LSA making it a perfect match with the 1LE option to make a Z/28 option for the 2014.

I don't see what the point of the LS7 would be here. It costs more to make and makes less power.

To be honest, two years ago I would've been excited over the prospect of an ls7 camaro. Fast forward to today, and I'm less optimistic about another two-ton, 500 hp camaro model when we still do not have a good answer to ford's forward thrust in the mustang.

I'd much rather see chevy tighten up the competition a bit with its current camaro models.
