GTO= 5.7 litre LS1 (350 cubic MF'ing inches BABY!) Back from the dead, again!
Don't look for GM to drop the pushrods any time soon. The 3.5L Shortstar engine can't produce enough power for domestic owners to care about. It was the main engine of choice for Olds (RIP) in the later days. The CTS has the 3.5 now and it doesn't sell. GM has plans for a CTSi, coming soon to a drag track near you! The i stands for "incredibly stupid of us to put a crappy, TOYOTA derived engine in a decent, rear drive car". It also happens to stand for the 5.7 litre, 400HP, 320Ft/Lb, fire-breathing LS1 demon
that will be massaged into the front end. Can it be that the truth of the matter is the Bonneville will become the 4-door variant of the GTO in 2007-8? I'll put my ear to the wall and see it I can come up with something for ya'll....
