What do you guys think if a company like a Full Race or Garrett offered a twin turbo kit for the V6 Camaro as a bolt on upgrade for a lot less than the difference of an SS Camaro. Would you pick it over the SS Camaro?
I'm asking because I know a lot of people my age can't afford an SS Camaro even though they'd love one. This route gives them SS power but for a lot less $$$. You would be able to have a Camaro and still surprise the crap out of people by taking it to them with SS power in a V6.

Consider a few things here.
How much weight would the kit add (at least 200lbs).
Can the stock V6 drive train take the increased torque?
Is the few thousand dollars in difference between the installed and tuned TT V6 Camaro with no warrenty now worth it over a warrantied V8 Camaro that also comes with better suspension, brakes and a beefier drive train?
I would do it, just to be different.....if the 3.8 in the 4th gens can be made into a dam good performer then I know for sure the new V6 in the 5th gen will be that much better. But I want a V8 SS as well....so maybe both? haha
Looks like Ford might be putting the ecoboost Mustang on the backburner. So unless something really good or really bad happens with new Camaro sales, I'm not sure I see any motivation for GM to do a TT model.
It'd be cool to see. I'd rather have a V8 version but if I ever wound up with a beater 6 cylinder camaro at least there'd be an option for power down the line. (everyone knows they mod the beater too!!)

Cool idea in a way. . . . But, it is a fact Camaro owners love v8's, including me.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with a TT settup on any car, but it just does not scream GM muscle. . . . My 2 Cents.
I'd think muscle cars will always have V8s. I think in the future GM may go with a small displacement V8 (<244ci) with a light pressure turbo. I think ppl are missing the fact that GM pulls exceptional fuel economy out of what are really big engines in the LS3 and LS7.
well if they mad a kit for it that would be cool cause insurance would be cheaper.. right?
