Do you think Chevy will ever put an LS7 inside a 5th-gen Camaro?

I'm kind of curious to see what some of you think. My dad said he'd buy a new Camaro when they start producing them with LS7's, and it got me thinking about whether or not Chevy would do that in the near or distant future.
So what do you think?


Yeah, he's a real car buff. Wants the biggest engine he can throw in a car. Has a 427 in his '69 RS/SS and 454 in his '71 Stingray.

The LS7 is on the way out. It won't appear in a Camaro, from GM at least.

Can we have a thread w/o mentioning a Z28? lol

But yeah, the motor is hand-built and too expensive. You will never see a production LS7 Camaro. NEVER!

NEVER!!!

The LS7 would be sweet and it would also lighten up the car a bit, would it not?

Just to confirm. There was a small small rumor floating around that the LS7 was on the list of z28 possibilties.....

But, GM has publicly stated that it's at the end of its lifecycle and way to expensive to drop in the Camaro.

I do believe that ADM is doing an LS7 swap.

Havent they already done the ls7 in one of the high performance mags? Anyway tell him to buy one and swing it and a ls7 by my house and I will throw it in there for him, for a small fee.

He could throw it in himself. If he did that, he'd even build it using the best parts he could find.

We'd be more than happy to drop in an LS7 for anyone if they want one in their car...After all, we ARE Mr. Goodwrench! Why wait?

Id love to see it built ! Especially matched up against the oh so bad SUPERCHARGED GT500. So what would the ford boys do then , it would have 35 more horse and than the LS-7 . To bad they'd only see the tail lights !
