    No one cared about the 3V GM small block.

    Ford Triton 3V > GM 3V

    True story.

    :dunno: It's new.

    But the new lightning motor which uses the 3V technology is supposed to develop 500HP.
     
  11. GM gets 500hp out of 6.3 liters, and Chrysler needs 8.0 liters to get the same output.

    Suck it Chrysler!

    Hell, you have no place on OT.

    Go the fuck away.

    I honestly don't know if their 6.3L motor is N/A.

    But why couldn't GM just base the block off their 5.3L Vortec which has been proven to make 285+ horsepower.

    Well I didn't see the article so I don't know if its an extension of the gen III small block or if its an early version of the gen IV, either say if they can get 500hp from an n/a 6.3l i'd be very impressed :cool:

    I think the ls1/6 prove that pushrods are still capable of kicking some ass, plus it cuts the cost of upgrading your cam in half / fourth compared to OHV engines :big grin:

    That's the best you can come up with?

    The design is simple, reliable, and very effecient.

    I'm not dissing GM in any way you nazi, I drive one. I'm simply critisizing them. GM is a very innovative company, and I think they could work wonders with an overhead valve design.

    who cares.

    the only reason the hemi died is becuase nascar wrote their rules to kill the hemis. if nascar had just leveled teh playign field instead of fucking over chrysler, they would have keep building the hemi and made it emmisions legal easily, instead of killing it...

    the 6.3l is naturally aspirated, and is a pushrod motor.

    they are being developed for the corvette and the trucks. I would imagine in the future the silverado and sierra probably will not have a big block gas engine any more and just have small blocks and a diesel option.
