A new V6 for Camaro in 2012?

It seems there may be a new V6 engine in the future of Camaro.
Labeled the "LFX", it seems to be a significant improvement on the already outstanding LLT V6 found in LS and LT Camaros.

The new engine option description is: LFX 3.6L SIDI, DOHC, VVT, E85 MAX, Alum GM

The LFX should displace 3.6L, like the current V6 found in the Camaro. And it's packed to the brim with advanced technologies like Spark-Ignition Direct-Injection, Dual Overhead Cams, Variable Valve Timing, and E85 capability.

Those are the details... but it seems to be likely that the LFX is going to build on the innovations of the 3.0L LF1 V6 found in vehicles like the Cadillac CTS, SRX, and Chevy Equinox. That engine features a composite intake manifold, integrated exhaust manifolds and optimized NVH/airflow treatments.

Estimates have the new LFX V6 at up to 330hp.

All it needs it's a pro charger and it would be good to go
