Anyone have the basic LS Coupe?

I had the idea of a sleeper project and I thought about the LS Camaro. The 1LT Coupe is a $1000 more on their website, but that thousand dollars could be used for extra parts.

Anyone else thinking about a LS Turbo Coupe Sleeper?

So let's say you walk out the door with a $20,000 LS coupe. That is $8-10k saved for your turbo(s) with all the bells and whistles.

Do we have evidence of any turbo'd V6 Camaro making LS3 Power yet? I really haven't researched anything because this idea just hit me.

Thanks

EDIT: Pics of your LS Camaros would be great.

Well let's just say I trade in my mom's beater car and I haggle a bit, $20,000.

I want the sleeper to be a good handeling track car. The LS has to be somewhat lighter than it's SS siblings. With a CF hood and lightweight wheels, a turbo and other engine work, I could have a quick camaro that would shame it's V8 counterpart.

I haven't heard of anyone turbo-ing it yet, but your idea shouldn't be that far-off.

btw, I heard there was a Texas tuning company that was working on a Turbo V6 Camaro (idk if it's an LS though) to beat the GT-R's Nurburgring Lap Time. (lolwut). It should be at SEMA 2009 as far as I know. Supposed to have 500+ horsepower O_o. No pricing yet, but my point is- it's totally doable.

I would trade in my mom's beater car, but it would be mine since it's her beater and she doesnt' care.

as far as I've heard, no one is tuning the V6 yet...so that's kinda standing in the way of any major performance upgrades as of now.

I wonder what the difference is to insure a LS car over an SS?

I do agree with the statement above about hot rodding - buy it and mod it to YOUR taste - that is what it is all about
