Like said, above, no new Camaro anytime soon. Also have to agree with him, putting the LS7 in there would be RETARDED, it would completely leave all Z06 buyers in stupid land.
I can see the Z/28 being powered by the 5.3L (As they use it in some cars now). Probably tuned to about 315-320hp (always has to be more than the Mustang)
Then the top engine be the 6.0L LS2 in the SS tuned to a little under 400hp (maybe 375hp?), just like the last gen Corvette and Camaro SS (both used LS1's but the SS's LS1 was tuned down by about 15-30hp).
The base engine (like all Camaros have always had, like the Mustang, some dirty four cylinder or weak six banger), would probably be the 3.9L OHV V6, if not that the 3.5L OHV V6. I can see the 3.9L being the best choice as it puts out way more power than the Ford 4.0L V6 in the Mustang but doesn't come close to outgunning the 5.3L.
