MC'* are most likely getting the 5.3L just like the GP GXP. not a 350 (5.7L).
based off the 3.5 Shortstar, right?

(and not the 3.5 OHV motor in the Malibu, which I reckon is based on the 3100/3400)

the big Buicks (Park Avenue Ultra, etc) have the N* too now, right?

American engine designers are finally figuring out how to get power out of an engine by other means than forced induction. Europe makes fun of us for this, but hopefully we can start pumping 300+hp out of an N/A 3.8 liter (Ferrari).

GM has lots of fun stuff coming...VVT, DOD just for starters. I think it is time that they take some steps forward, and get more power for less displacement, etc.

I'd like to see some manuals too...

its the G6 that gets the 3.9, not the C6 (liiiittle difference there)

What the hell is a GP GXP? Is this what Pontiac had on there sight when they had all the GXP cars on the page? If so, its not going to be supercharged like they said? Show me this

The Grand Prix GXP will have a 5.3L Small Block Chevy v8 engine. I posted on this a few weeks ago, people in Mechanics circles have confirmed though alldata or whatever, because they've recieved the information on drivertrains, and service issues etc.

I'd rather have a 5.3L Gen III v8 then a 4.9 Northstar personally.

What'* the Turbocharged 3.5 I heard about? I think I saw it one of the GM site'* concepts cars pages. That would be fun. 3.5 DOHC already would have nice mid and high end power, and the turbo to give a nice kick in the arse down low.

same here. would the small block be DOHC or OHV?

turbos kick in mid-higher RPMs.

not necessarily. it also depends on the size and such of the turbo - you can have a high-pressure sucker that'll come in past 3000rpm... or have a teeny weeny pea-shooter where you don't even feel the spool.
