they had to change the accessory belt just to make it fit. Raises the question WHY DIDNT THEY JUST GO RWD?!?! Probably would have been cheaper...

That'* the first platform that engine'* been in.... Mighta changed from the LS1/2 routing but still..

Accessory belt engineering or platform engineering? One'* cheaper!

The next GP or G8 will be RWD. Thank god..

That thing only needs a performance exhaust. Then it will be crankin good. I cant say i like the styling too much, but the engine is definately a MAJOR plus. It has to be RWD though, thats just it.
