So when is it going to happen? Does anyone know anything?
I am baffled by the deafening silence on this subject. Yeah, so GM just announced that the next gen Corvette will have a direct injected V8 option. It better! I mean isn't this the next natural step for engines. Look at power out put of the ford eco-boost! Why are people not standing outside dealerships demanding this. So GM has decided to direct inject a V8. Where is the twin turbo package? The ZR1 motor is impressive I'll admit, but direct injection + boost, now you're cooking with nitro. Can you imagine the torque? If Ford can do it with 6 cylinders, how hard could it possibly be to do it with 8. Set the general ignorance of that statement aside and admit that the point has merit. I realize that there are technical complications and much work to be done, but the principals are all the same. There's no new science to sort out or theoretical hurdle to clear, they just have to build it. Surely both GM and Ford have twin turbo charged direct injected test mules running around Detroit somewhere, or at least making music in some deep dark dyno chamber. Surely the must.....right? I would be ashamed of them if they didn't. What I want to know is does anyone have any information, any leaks or hints as to what might come?
I can imagine that if there is a direct injected V8 corvette on the way that there is a twin-turbo'd ZR1 coming shortly there after...?
GM: Don't let me down here.....
