I like this C8 but man I don't want to mod it. It took probably almost a year for the tuning to become available for the LT5 ZR1. It already has it's own sequential port injection system, but damn it is getting super expensive buying all the tuning credits. I can't imagine what it will cost and also the new trans on top of that. And what's every GM guys favorite thing to do? That's right, put a big ass cam in there. Welp, probably have to pull the engine!!! You were supposed to remove the engine to do the cam on the LT4 but we had a work around. I wouldn't be surprised if cam/exhaust/tune runs you 10 grandThe previous gen ZR1 is where it's at.
The 5th gen Camaro was not bad... worked on a lot of those SS/ZL1/Z28. Remember one SS 1LE that had a Maggie, cam, heads etc and made about 770 to the tire. It had stock size Michelins and I just couldn't understand. You couldn't get on it, unless you were doing maybe 80. 6th Gen not bad but just didn't love them either. Expensive for a Camaro, still heavy, more difficult to work on. The newer ZL1 10 speed seemed like you were in 6th at about 40mph... The 1LE yea basically dedicated track car.With how crazy the Camaro has gotten with HP and track ability they had to do something different with the Corvette. Hopefully it will change the stigma some.
