What I think is that the GMPP LS3's that push some impressive numbers might trigger a gas guzzler tax. Shure, they can be factory tuned, but the fuel economy ratings might trigger a GG tax? Any thoughts? Why can't we just get the LS7, that has no GG. It's underpowered at 505 HP, with much room for growth. It fills a void between a 426 HP and 580 HP Camaro perfectly, no recertification or tinkering involved. It fits EPS mandates and has no GG because of the fact GM has produced it relatively tame to fit it's needs(and used CAGS on the Z06), and leaving a performance void for the SEM people to fill based on customers need. 1LE covers many bases, and after I thought it over I am pleased with the substantial step GM has taken with the SS to another level, suspension wise, however the the nagging question about the power plant still remains.

I think most of us Z/28 fans would be happy to see an LS7 in this 1LE as a Z package. Having said that, when you look at all the Z/28 products over the past 40 years, this 1LE tops them all performance wise. It really is an awesome package.

I know we are going to lose that LS7 engine once the next gen Corvette arrives so it's a now or never sort of thing.......

Trust me, they got the message loud and clear this past weekend. Not sure that it will matter though as Team Camaro doesn't get the final word about engine availability. They will have to try and convince the powers that be to keep the LS7 around for a bit longer.
