    LT-anything >>> *Northstar...ever

    Not so sure about LT5 >>> LSx, though The fanboy in me says 'Yes,' the realist says 'Maybe not so much.' :hs:

    If there was a 'new LT5,' built with as much effort and maybe even more know-how than the LS-series has been built, then that would be interesting.

    I mean, Porsche is getting just over 600hp with the same displacement(5.7L, right??). Might be a case of V8 vs V10, but I don't see why GM wouldn't be able to match that.

    Just in throttle response, and without the aid of electronics or anti-lag.

    GM announced the end of Northstar development.

    LSx = wave of the future

    I think so. I think it was a hybrid (2 different source engines, not prius) motor. Boosted plus a 200 shot or something insane. :noes:

    Oh yeah, definitely 'interesting,' but not necessarily the best way to do things. I'm not sure if the results of a DOHC would be any better than what GM gets out of their OHV engines.

    I really don't like how the Northstars seemed to just stagnate. I know there was the V-Series version with the supercharger...but not many others do, because no one buys the V-series Caddies other than the CTS. :o
