Yeh we got the L36 and L67 ... Known as the Ecotec to us. High up Models such as the Calais received the L67 as a cheaper option than the High Output 5.7L GenIII LS1.
It came in the sports models too Such a the "* Pack" and in one model it actually came as an option with the "SS Pack" But Holden NEVER put a manual behind it (thats our customisation). Not even when the T56 came, claiming the Gearbox couldn't handle the torque.
Rumour is though that if they were to manualise the L67 there would be no point to buy a V8 because even in Auto form they stomp the V8s
. Not sure about the new LS2 though, that thing is a weapon as I've heard, Low-down Torque. And the new Alloytec motor, its an incredible little piece of work.
But anyways heres the pics ...
