    . . .you may get your wish . . . Plenty of chit chat out of the states at the moment suggesting the Z07 Vette "may" have a TT Combo . . it certainly make easy tech sense these days . . . and makes it easier to meet emission targets too . .!?!?!

    Looking into my crystal ball . . .

    GEN 5 Naturally Asp 340kw . . . This is the output of the C7 Vette in base form as released next monh in the states . . Clubsport, Maloo, Senator . . . the big plus with the N/A GEN 5 is the 610nm torque figure . . . which will significantly increase the on road performance/feel of the Series 2,,

    GEN 5 SC 450kw Supercharged in the Camaro ZL1 . . . CTSV Caddy . . . HSV GTS

    GEN 5 TT 500kw in the ZO7 Vette only . . .

    Surely the LT1 will get more than 340 kw in HSV form. Just from a marketing perspective alone. They couldn't Leave it the same as the R8 sv, torque figures aren't as good a marketing tool.

    When the E1 got the LS2 it had 307 kw versus the vettes 297 kw. But I think that was a bit of marketing BS, I watched an E1 make 245 kw on a dyno and a C6 LS2 make 272 kw on the same night, both standard.

    Ill be curious to see what my SV wagon makes stock at the wheels.

    There is no way that GM would allow the Vette's "primo" engine into any other model . . . .ie . . The LS9 was a C6 ZR1 only Powertrain . . . The LSA was the cheaper alternative for the volume selling models . . .

    . . . But???? . . . will GM do the LT1 in 2 different Turbo vaients!!! . . . One for the Camaro ZL1 & CTSV & GTS . . . and the primo variant for the Vette . . . it's certainly going to be interesting watching the LT1 development over the next 6 months and I wish I could have got under the bonnets of those 2 GTS prototypes the other day!!!!!!
