I read something the other day about 08 emissions regs causing the LS7 not to be in compliance anymore. There is talk on Digital Corvettes about an LS9. This possibly being a DOHC http://www.digitalcorvettes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=49908
The other is an LS3 . This is what they are saying: "I'm being told the 2008 Engines are a LS3 & LS9 as we mentioned earlier with HP predictions,
no confirmations but look in the area of 450 & 600!
Both engines have the same displacement which if you think about it, will save tooling and manufacturing costs
AS THE FORUMS TALK ABOUT THIS DEVELOPING STORY- YOU DID HEAR IT HERE 1st & ONLY ON www.corvetteconti.com . Not sure the status of the LS2"
it is almost gettin rediculus how much hp you can buy from the factory now, or at least what is goin to be out. 400+ at the wheels in the hands of an inexperienced person is bad, and can be a bit of a handful in the hands of a good driver. im hopin that those engines are capable, while still being modable. the LT5 was awesome, but a bit too complex. maybe the Corvette will become a supercar when it gets a complicated engine
