Your not going to see the LS7 in a Camaro. It is being discontinued.

Probley best chance is getting a LSA if anything.

The LS7 was being discontinued a long time ago. It's hand made, and expensive to produce. The LS2 that was in the Concept Camaros was also.

And yes, GM and Chrysler WERE talking merger.

Noone would buy a $60,000 camaro, which is why they never thought about putting the LS7 in there.

Expensive, handbuilt motors don't go into regular production cars.

i doubt it, the LSA is a supercharged LS motor like the LS9 but a little less power


EDIT: i wanted to be a little more politically correct in my statement

We all know that, but they have to call it a "merger" so that the Chrysler blue collars don't freak out and think that they'll lose their jobs. It's all political. Same thing happened with Daimler-Chrysler. Mercedes owned Chrysler, and told them what to do. Later on, Mercedes decided it wasn't worth it, and sold off Chrysler.
