Boosted 4cyl Turbos make some good output when boost is increased and would be cool to hear a 2015 2.0T Camaro spool it's turbo making massive HP in the 7,000+ range !!!!!!!

If that's the case, I have no problem with it....but what is more likely to happen is the 4-cyl will not come in cheaper, it will come in where the V6 currently is, and the V6 and V8 will both get pushed up.

Turbo Neon had 220 hp. I think the Turbo Caliber had about 260. Both could be modded to go over 300, but they generally became less than reliable at those levels.

It does sound good, but....

What you are describing is basically what the BRZ turbo will be once it comes out, which would make the Camaro a similarly powered car, but with a lot more mass and without the driving dynamics of the BRZ. So for those among us whose reason for buying the Camaro would be something other than it is named "Camaro," what would be the selling point?

I suppose it depends on what exactly the 6th gen looks like... I would consider the option... I test drove a 2011 Regal turbo, manual trans and loved it. Almost traded the Camaro in on it. Just turn up the boost! WOOOO!

First let me say that I really want another V6 in the 6th gen. I'd love to see a T4 with around 260HP and maybe 260 - 270 TQ and a V6 with 340HP and 290 - 300 TQ.

But have you guys seen what a tune does to the new 2.0 T4 in the buick and the ATS?

Thats near L99 Territory torque at the wheels right there:

The same reason you went with a gray Camaro over blue, or red, or yellow. Because it's all about options. People want options.

Pretty much the same reasons that some people want 6 cylinder Camaros. More fuel efficient, weigh less, and cost less. Its not that big of a mystery really.

And keep in mind that the new naturally aspirated 2.5L 4 banger has a similar overall output to the 3.4L V6 used in Camaros 20 years ago, and a good deal more than the 2.8L V6 used 30 years ago. GM's turbo4 makes numbers that aren't too far from what the supercharged 3800s were making in the late 90's.

You've been close to where I live a couple times. Imagine that whole area as farmland and that's how it was when I was growing up. So yeah, it kinda was.

Nobody. Whats your point? You ever modded a car before? If so, then you also willing to throw away your warranty.

I'm not saying I'd be perfectly comfortable pushing the stock internals to the limit either, but its worth letting people know what these things are capable of with just a tune right? Its interesting. Maybe it doesn't sound V8 like, but thinking these things are slow is just old thinking.

Just an observation....seems like whenever a discussion over this I-4 in a Camaro comes up, it's praises as a respectable performance motor are only made after elaborate modifications have been added....Sure, you can probably mod the heck out of something for greater numbers, but in stock form, as it will probably be made, won't even be close to those...sort of defeats the affordable, entry-level argument...
