Lightbulb Do you guys think engine size REALLY matter?

Do you guys think all camaros are nice no matter what engine is in them? I have a 1LT RS package yellow with black stripes, 5% tint, K&N cooler air intake, and soon to be black powder coated rims with LED fog light with the DRL plug and play. Do you guys think that will be nice? Even though it doesn't have the power of a v8?

It's not what we think, it's what you think.
People buy their Camaro for all kinds of reasons.
If you are happy with it THAT is all that matters.

You have a GREAT car...

Does it matter?

Uhh yes. DUH. The bigger the better

Does it make your car any less of a car?

Uhh no.

Say you have two corvette z06's. One bone stock, and one bone stock with nitrous.

Since the stock one doesn't have as much power, does that make it an inferior car? Hell no... not as fun... yes, but a badass car none the less.

Dude I want the V6 over the V8, Yes I already have a V8 and that influences my choice in this but imagine how a high revving V6 beating a V8 will feel. If you ever go on LS1.com talk to smittro he is amazing with V6's and his 4th gen V6 rev's to 10,000rpms
But your car is sick and with the powder coated rim's i got to say i will be jealous

Kinda like the saying goes, it's note the size that matters, but what you do with it.

I love my V6 and being that it's my first car, I am more than happy with the horse power. In a few years I will probably upgrade but I definitely have no regrets.

its badass either way. i like having the power of the v6 and the good fuel economy. the v8 is great im sure tho. Probably too much power than i need right now and too much gas $$ i dont have lol. Twin turbos on my 6 are plans for the future...sure to beat any stock v8 camaro

Totally dont ever let keeping up with the jones's ever cause you to second guess your decisions. If I was using a Camaro for a Daily Driver I would for sure make it a V6 Automatic and do way more of the cool visual mods like you have. Its all about enjoying what you have and having what you enjoy.
