2002 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)
That's the story of the Camaro for the
4th generation, especially the LS1 (98-
up) versions. Editors with little to
no experience with the car step in
expecting a Lexus ride with Corvette
performance. What did they expect for
22K? It's the fastest car hands down
in its price range, and contrary to
urban legend, its fuel efficiency is
amazing (26 MPG A4, 29 M6 highway).
Others critique the LS1 with comments
like "dinosaur pushrod technology."
Hey -- why change what works? What's
even more amazing is that almost nobody
outside the auto community has realized
that the LS1 F-bodies are underrated
from the factory.
Tailights (cuz that's all Mustangs are
seeing, '03 Cobra duly excepted)
No need to underrate it.
Rearend is a weakest link once you get
past 400 RHWP.
