Right you are jon, and the only reason it won't suck is because Ford didn't do any of the engineering on it. Once we
finished design, they agreed (after dragging their feet on the subject for a LONG time) to cover half of the developmental costs.
worked out well for them, cause they're going to get a very nice tranny out of the deal, and the way it was announced (gm will likely never admit what I said above), it looks like Ford actually worked with GM on it...
