I agree with this.
Of course the SS model should get the LT1 with 7 speed manual or 8 speed auto. Auto should get the same engine as the manual, not a truck engine like the 2010-2015 cars. Buyers should also be able to pick from a variety of gear ratios even if they force a GG tax. Same type of thing should have been done on the 5th gen. Buyers should have had the option to get the LS3 with a auto transmission and pay a GG tax as well as 3.70 to 3.91 gear ratios for both transmission types. AFM can be turned off by the driver with the new LT1 so no need to have a non AFM car though.
BLK/BLK 1SS/RS Ordered 11-01-2009 Took delivery 12-22-2009. Heads/cam/converter/bolt ons. SOLD Feb 2015 to fund 6th gen LT1 SS with 8L90E.
