I don't see Team Camaro doing a blown Z/28. That's why I think the ZL1 will stay.
True. Though I rather see them produce another Z/28 than a ZL-1. The Zl-1 was basically a straightline car with track capabilities. Oh how I wish theyd produce a N/A high out-put engine above an SS with a little weight reduction and not so many exotic out of priced parts. Wishful thinking I know. Seems S/C or turbos are the future...

...whatever...follow the Vette, see how the Camaro will follow the same suit going foward. Hand in glove they are. The Vette is merging models, so shall the Camaro. Shrinking is the keyword going forward. Technology. Expense. Survivability. Streamlining. Then in a not too distant future, a limitation...because such things as we know now will be become too exhorbitant.

It would be cool if they brought back the 5.7 liter. High compression, CNC ported heads and no AFM.

LoL ..... I wouldn't call a MSRP price range in the $55,000 - $60,000 "watered down" ....


I would love to see, like a stated in the past, a 6th Gen Camaro somewhere in the 3,300lb range with a 4 banger Turbo with about 320-340hp ....

DI will be way of the future. DI forced induction on high perf models. Seems an FI Z06 opens the door for an FI Z/28 or Z28 in 6th Gen F body.

DI is the way of the future? No, it's here now. That's what the new Vette has got..the Gen 5 motor. The LT1. The LT4 will be a S/C variant of it, coming to your local Chevy dealership in the Z06 another production year later. This technology has been around European models before it has transfered to the US.

The context of the comment was Gen 6 Camaro. You are correct it is here now for many current production passenger vehicles and it has been around for a few years.

Agreed, but my retort was to the post made like it was some new technology just showing up here now. The 2016 Camaro will no doubt carry the LT1 DI motor as what is in the new Vette. That's the base 8 cylinder motor going forward. No upgrades, no mods, no changes. The LT4 is the only upgrade we know of, with 1.6 liter Eaton supercharger for the Z06 Vette. The future stops there as we know it, will there be other things in the works? Probably...but the info is slow coming out. And for good reason. Chevy is playing it close to the vest...

DI is definitely not the future...but the now.

The V6 Camaro has had it all along, and part of the reason why we can achieve over 350+HP and still good gas mileage from a mid displacement V6. The V6 with FI see's huge power gains with only a relatively small amount of boost and I predicted the LT1 V8 would see similar huge gains. There have been some boosted LT1s done by now, and they are seeing bigger power than the LS3 on the same boost.

....no, DI is direct injection, the V6 Camaro has not had it all along. May I respectfully suggest that you do some research on what DI is, and how it affects the engine where power gains can be made over non DI engines. It's quite an uncanny technology!

The v6 in the Camaro has been direct injection since 2010 when the 5th gen debuted which is what he was referring to. The LLT (2010-2011) and LFX (2012+) v6 engine is direct injection and - in addition to appearing in the 5th gen Camaro - is used on other vehicles in GM's lineup as well. The v8 is the last of GM's engine families to get direct injection. Anyone familiar with the v6 5th gen Camaros are quite familiar with direct injection, their power gains, and their qwerks (read: oil catch cans).

....never let the facts get in the way of a good post I say....LOL . Total brain fart, from, well, an older fart here. In defense of my stupidity I was and have always been an 8 cylinder guy,...and left the knowledge of what I read about the 6 DI VVT way behind me. Thanks for correcting my error, and being nice about it...
