    Well there are 2 of them. The L850 that's in the colbalts and whatnot currently and the new V6, which I believe is the LZ9 they're using in the Pontiac G6 now. It has VVti

    I hope not. Replacing the LSx based v8 motors would be the biggest mistake GM could possibly make.

    no no "Wold engine" is what automakers refer to cross company/cross platform engines. Those engines will be used by everyone from Saab to Toyota.

    Chrysler is doing something similar w/ a diesel engine they're gonna share w/ Subaru maybe? I forget.

    Do you think GM will be switching from the Pushrod design for their next big engine? Or just continuing with developing the LS series.

    My PERSONAL opinion, they ought to break out the old V6 from the GN's and GNX's and update the heads a lil and slap on a couple more cylinders...
