I was giving one at Oshawa and wanted to know what this emblem stands for. The person that gave it to me told me, I would be probably the second V6 with one there's being the other.

I just got done talking with the MAN who knows all there is on that badge. His daughter and my daughter are best friends. They use to play softball together. They are at each other’s house almost every weekend. He use to work for the PERFORMANCE DIVISION and was located in MILFORD, MICHIGAN. HE is now at the TECH CENTER and just 250 feet down the hallway from me. He is one of the main race guys for driving the Camaro’s at Milford. He KNOWS his stuff, (races cars on the side as a hobby). I am about to give you some info. that not many know, (and is OK to repeat) the media never picked up on this fact as well as GM would have liked them too.

The BADGE means that the car meets or exceeds the GM PERFORMANCE DIVISION approval for racing capability. IT was installed on all SS models for the first half a year in 2010. The badge was then removed for cost savings of the badge.

To earn the badge the Camaro SS now has the following 3 items as stock from the factory.

1. Brembro brakes.

2. Trans. cooler (manual only)

3. Engine oil cooler


These 3 areas were tested on the race track and had to meet certain specs. With these 3 items added the Camaro SS meets or exceeds those specs, and now can sport the BADGE.

Too bad 99% of the Camaro owners do NOT know this and probably never will. I know I didn't until 30 minutes ago.


and NO, the V6 does not meet the specs and does not get the BADGE. Thus the reason NO V6 was ever released with this BADGE.
