It seems to me the absolute best out there in affordable power has been
GM's LSx series engines. The OHV Ford 302 is still sought after to this day
because they're lighter and the power potential is huge.
I realize having multiple valve OHC engines have their benefits, like higher revs. But the finished product (engine) year after year has always been a notch better with GM's LSx when you account for weight, size, power and fuel economy.
The blown Cobras make spectacular power but damn, they're fricken heavy. Can you imagine (if) Chevy comes out with the Camaro Z28 (LS2) and the Camaro SS (LS7)?
Original NIKE shoes are only $79.99 !!!
NIKE SHOX R4, NIKE SHOX TL series, NIKE DUNK, NIKE JORDAN series, NIKE AIR MAX....

quoted verbatim from Sean'sVette's post at Supercars.net, eh?
At first I thought, what an odd first post for someone. Then I rsaw his sig, he's just copying/pasting (as VWHobo said) a random thread and then advertizing sneakers in his sig. At least it's something different.
The SS should get the LS2 and the Z28 get the LS7. The Z28s back in the day were better than the SSs.
then exactly why wee they called Z28 SS's? thats the full name if i
recall, unless you mean like old old, which i dont know about.
Personally, i say bring back the i-rock
I couldn't possibly care less what they call the performance and/or appearance packages. If it's got an LS* with a 6spd and strongly resembles the concept... show me the dotted line.
I believe that the SS had the option for a 396 w/ around 375 hp. I don't think that a Z28 ever got that kind of power. Unless you count the COPO ZL1s as Z28s, but thats a stretch.
The Z28 was started a couple years after the coupe, Rally Sport, and SS were already going to be a performance model.
The Z28 came out in 1967, which was the first year Camaros were produced.
My point from the post earlier was that the SS has always been the performance car compared to a Z28.
Actualy, originally, the SS was the drag version of the Camaro, the Z/28
was the road race version of the Camaro. BOTH were "performance cars" but
they had different missions. The Z/28 took over both roles after the 2nd
gen's came out.
You could also option up either one with the RS package, and IIRC, there were a few that had a combo of all three.
