LS3

So I've now heard anywhere from 410hp to 475hp for the LS3.

I'm guessing we'll see the debut of the LS3 in the 2008 Corvette?
My guess at power would be 430hp.

my guess is 425 with small bump in 2-3 years to 450 or 475.

I would guess about 450 hp they don't want to step on ZO-6 owners feet!

Oh, I wouldn't worry about the Z06.

By the time base Corvette gets an LS3, Z06 will have something better than an LS7 methinks.

Also keep in mind the LS3 will have variable valve timing. The truck version, L92 (already in use in the full size SUVs) has a cam phaser that can retard or advance the cam on the fly. Pretty cool stuff. That plus cylinder deactivation means we really will have the potential for 30mpg out of a 400+hp Camaro.

Also expect a 6 speed auto transmission like comes in the C6s now.
