FYI on the "heat option", I negotiated in the price of Leather with Heat rather than the cloth. It's aftermarket through the dealer. The heat switch was placed on the sides of the chair, not the dash. But it does have high and low. Plus you can pick and choose on color of leather, perforations or not.

I never owned a 5th Gen Camaro but rode in one a few times and while it was cool, I was not really impressed.

I test drove (then bought) a 2017 2SS and have been extremely impressed with the car.

The 6th Gen is way beyond the 5th Gen.

From mikemollc:

1. Do you guys think itís better to just build my current older ss or just hop on the LT1 train.
  • If you can afford to do it then it will be a nice performance and technology upgrade. But your 5th gen is a better car than the 6th gen. I have owned three 5th gens, a 2SS, a twin turbo 1LE, and a ZL1. I have also owned a 6th gen 2SS, a ZL1, and now an LT1. I thought that 2016 2SS was my favorite Camaro ever, but now my LT1 is the top dog overall. I paid about the same $$ on my LT1 as my 5th gen 2SS.And I got a good deal on that Camaro.

2. The recaros you can option in the LT1 the have the heated and cooled seats but they arenít wired from what I seen on this forum is that true.
  • This is true. And you can buy a hookup to add the seat ventilation. However seat ventilation on the Camaro is not effective hardly at all unless you have the AC on down low. As for me I would rather have the seat heater. The LT1 is the only V8 Camaro that comes with all seasons but yet you cannot get heated seats on an LT1.

3. How do these lt1 motors handle and drive with boost not looking to go nuts just 550-600whp are my current goals. (Is there room to grow after)
  • The LT1 has the same suspension and front brakes as the SS so it will handle big power. But after ruining my 2013 1LE with twin turbos I would say you are better off with a ZL1 if that is what you want.

4. How does the LT1 stack up to the 10 speed 5.0 I was looking at those as well and I have a buddy with a 15 pony with the auto 6 we have done work to and its fast!!
  • I can tell you stock my M6 LT1 runs with A10 Coyote Mustangs mildly modified both with a CAI and tires. Someone I raced often was a well driven 2020 A10 with the stock higher gears. They did not get the .355 option as they are planning a power adder later. I think out of 5 runs I only lost once where I overslept at the line and they edged me out. We both ran 12.1s my best was 12.10 similar to the Mustang. For sure in mineshaft Atco weather my LT1 is an 11 second car.

5. How do most cars come equipped from the dealer I heard the cars arenít being built right now so ordering one might take a while. The must haves for me are auto, the tech pack, but I really want the recaros, dual mode exhaust, black wheels[/QUOTE]
  • Good choices! Get the Recaros, they are some of the best sport seats in any car. I ordered with the famous Becky. And it was a great experience having my LT1 delivered in Motor city. But sadly she has moved on.

The difference between the new LT1 and the SSes is explained in this link:

As an owner of a 2010 2SS, I am planning, if it ever is available, to replace it with a 2022 SS.

I don't get the whole LT1 thing, with mo cooling package and no tow hook receiver.

just traded my 2012..wow what a higher spec car. blown away with the extras included.
imho it's worth it just for the active exhaust and magneride. the upgrade imho just for those 2 things is worth the outlay

The main thing is that you'd be going from the Zeta chassis to the Alpha Chassis. It's much stiffer, solid, responsive, and lighter. You'd be going from a chassis with it's design roots going back to the late 1990s to a chassis specifically designed in the early 2010s for the Cadillac CTS and 6th gen Camaro. It feels like the whole car was carved out of one solid piece of lightweight aluminum alloy. The 6th gen was engineered as a true road carver from the ground up, and that in combination with the power you want to run will make you forget all about your 5th gen the first time you let it loose.

Hmmmm......

I guess it's personal preference but I drove a new 2SS in 2010 when they first came out, and compared to my 2SS? It felt a bit mushy and heavy.

If you do not plan to track your car semi seriously you do not need those things at all. So with the LT1 you get a lighter car in trade with less complexity and $$ in the long run. And with the LT1 you also get a "free" winter tire/wheelsetup. Still that is cool stuff just to have.

I do miss the tow hook at the drag strip but if I keep the power within reason and stay away from slicks I will have no use for it (hopefully).

Agreed. Oops, what I meant was with the 5th gen you get a usable back seat and more room inside. The CA6 Camaro is a better SPORTS car.

I also miss my 5th gen Camaros, I had 3 of them including a ZL1. My favorite 5th gen was the 2013 orange 2SS 1LE. I loved it as a bolton car running low 12s. But them I added Twin Turbos and ruined it.
