Coupled with the fact SIDI is very resistant to detonation - that's where the gains come from.
The twin turbo bit - the answer's not no, just not now.

Anyone know if they fixed the timing chain issues on the DI motors? The non-DI 3.6 eats timing chains for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Its one major problem from being a great engine. Hopefully they got that issue fixed on the DI 3.6 and 3.0.

The current 3.6 was developed for the CTS, and is expensive to produce. I'll bet this one is cheaper to make...otherwise, what's the point?

The Camaro Mustang battle will be mainly with the V-6 engines it seems, though a 340BHP 3.6L engine in the 2012 Camaro would be sweet. You can either get the best fuel economy or be the fastest but right now the V-6 Mustang is both.

If the SRX is dropping the turbo engine then they need something to replace it. Ideally the turbo 3.0, if not this new 3.6 would do.

Heavens: they're going to put a turbocharged version into the new big Caddy. Pretty close to 400 hp, I bet.
Maybe I could get used to the idea of a V6 Caddy.
