I still say that a 4.3L V6 will have to make over 300 hp to not be a joke. I know truck engines are tuned differently, but the 3.6L from 5+ years ago makes over 300 hp. I expect the 4.3L to make at least 300 hp.

With DI engines, the high compression already pushes up the potential for NOX smog particle formation - a super short stroke and big bore are also bad for NOX so that would be a bad combo for passing emissions.

Well nothing to do with the 4.3 but I also think 5.3 will be more than the 5.0 from Ford because the 5.3 will be the max tow engine in LT/SLE trim trucks. I just really doubt GM having different max tow ratings with the max tow package.
