I meant the original LT4 and DOHC LT5. Obviously GM intended the LT4 to replace the LS7 and LSA. They knew the LT5 was coming so the LT4 was never top dog.

Until I see Camaro getting more power...

That’s because making two blown Corvettes didn’t make any sense to me. It still doesn’t but I admitted I was wrong then.

Could I be wrong again? That’s very likely but they are following the...

Except it hasnít been debunked because the LT4 was never the top engine. Apparently, they had been working on the ZR1 before the Z06 was revealed.

If the Camaro was no longer limited, why doesnít...

The fact that any new GM vehicle still comes with the 8 speed makes no sense. Even the new trucks still have it but that’s GM for you.

Or, this might be a stretch, but GM could come up with a different name, in the absolutely microscopic chance an LT5 Camaro happens.

I'd be surprised if even GM knows when the C8 will launch. This is turning out to be their NSX/Supra. Why else would they be rushing out sticker packages... I mean special editions?

So .32 seconds slower is on par but .3 seconds faster isnít on par? The end result is the M6 is still very fast on a race track. I wonder if it could have picked up any time with some adjustment.

GM said the same thing about the A8 Z07 vs the M7. Turned out the M7 was still faster and it took GM engineers fiddling with the A8 car to make it turn a faster lap.

Yeah, thatís true.

People can mock us as purists all they want, but donít come complaining when the Camaro ends up as a FWD econo box. GM considered that, as a replacement of the 4th gen.

No, ZL-1s were big block 427s that went in both Camaros and Corvettes. That isn’t a justification for changing the Z/28 again.

During Best Driver’s car a few years back, the SS 1LE ran a 1:37.38 and the GT350R ran a 1.36.11, so the 1LE and base 350 are probably a lot closer than people would want to admit.

Either way,...

Really? Iíd be pretty surprised if they reveal a SE C7, then follow it up with the C8 a few months later. That seems like a sure fire way to kill sales of the special edition.
