    13-psi makes 321 hp in their V6 :ugh:

    There's 4 cylinders that make that much power with 13psi of boost :mamoru:

    :hsugh:

    because boost pressure isnt relevant to the size of the turbo or anything

    anyway, its only a 2.8

    Shame Vauxhall is pulling out of racing. Would be been sweet to see the BTCC version of this car next year.


    I REALLY hope GM pulls their head out of their ass and brings this over. At the very least as a Buick. Or as a Chevy to compete with the Taurus SHO.

    Of course i realize thats about as likely as me butt fucking Megan Fox.

    Looks great on the outside, but button overload on the inside.

    they are getting too heavy

    this is 4000lbs

    so while it might produce 320hp, its really not enough to move it in any 'sporty' manner.

    AWD performance sedans only seems to work on the Subaru and Mitsubishi
