    You can call me a dinosaur but does chevy really need to start supercharging vets after 55 years? I am inclined to believe that if the direct injection
    technology used in the new CTS were applied to the LS7 similar hp numbers would be attainable without the increased weight and complexity of a supercharger. There have also been some rumors about a 454 ci smallblock that, with direct injection, could surely match the output of the LS9.

    Just my .02

    Nissan are claiming that they've made the new GTR "tuner proof." And while I don't buy that exactly -tuners will worm their way into it eventually- I don't think you'll ever see quite the same numbers out of the new car as from the old. The days of simply turning up the boost on the RB26/2JZ are over...

    good point, what about cost effectiveness though? i mean they can't even do a proper interior for the Z06, i don't expect them to go all out this

    I agree, but I'm not going to fault this engine on that basis...

    If you're going to make the new GTR tuner proof, you might as well not sell the damn car at all.

    Again only rumors, but I have heard that it will have a better interior.

    I have to commend you on your signature, only time I laughed out loud today.

    The measly 470 ft-lbs put out by the ZO6 and pathetic 560 put out by the 08 Viper doesn't stir my soul either.

    Fanboys are usually too crazy for the car.

    I don't think you're that crazy for the Corvette (as in probably marrying it if they had a chance to).

    You don't suck, but you do have Vipers in your Avatar, Fanboy.
