    Hate to say it but it seems like a lot of horses. What will happen to cars like the Wave and Aveo?

    Hell makes me feel odd I drive a 185hp car and it's pretty fast...

    Yeah, this hybrid thing better come quick. GM better think of ways to bring V-8 hybrids and V-6 hybrids to their lineup, and fast. The environment is crumbling as we speak... pollution being the main cause, and now that China will soon become the largest car-selling industry, because of their population, that presents a big problem, and gives us a date around 2050 to say bye-bye to our great planet, and welcome to the next Ice Age.

    Re: My (and your?) ideal GM engine line-up

    I'd like to see Direct injection with Stop start (Bosch DirectStart) Added To The High feature and High Value Engines.

    I'd Like to see the 2 step valve lift added to the High Feature Engines.

    I'd like To see all The high Value Engines get 3 valve per cylinder heads, and Displacement on Demand.

    I'd Like To see A Duramax V6, and Some Isuzu 3.0 diesel v6s (4.0 diesel V8?)
