    Anyway, interesting that GM has moved away from supercharging and towards turbocharging.

    Turbos were considered for the C6 ZR1 but had a tendency to catch fire back then. Presumably they've sorted that stuff out.

    They will. You don't think Chevy is going to pick up this whole tab, do you?

    Totally agree! I am certain that GM will have it's engineering house in order. GM Design though, I'm apprehensive......

    I'm forbidden on this server it says when I click on the links. It even does the same thing when I click on the logo at the top to get to the home page. Way to go NewsBot or whatever.

    GM's been smashing the article with bots. Or so we think.

    The latest and greatest leak regarding the mid-engine Corvette surfaced on Christmas Day. Don't you just love the internet?**

    Corroborating with pictures that surfaced on the internet last week, the next-generation Corvette will be receiving*a new DOHC twin-turbo V8 that's likely to birth GM's next-generation V8 architecture. Displacement still remains a mystery, and will likely remain shrouded in secrecy until launch. However, there are alleged rumblings a 4.0-liter*motor for racing purposes, along with perpetual rumors the Corvette will gain a 5.5-liter*V8 pilfered from Corvette Racing.*



    Regardless, the image shows a longitudinally mounted V8 with turbos hanging low off each cylinder bank and plumbing for the turbos that snake around themselves from back to front as it runs from the rear, to the centrally mounted airbox. An earlier*drawing had made the turbos seem like they were mounted at the car's extreme rear, but this image shows they will, in fact,*be mounted more mid-ship, closer to the cabin.*

    The picture appears to show similar thinking as we've seen in GM's 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 LGW engine used in the Cadillac CT6. The turbos are closely coupled and include water-to-air intercoolers and it looks like the heads will have the exhaust manifolds cast into them, which is also similar to what Ford has done with its 2.7-liter*V6.*

    According to the original poster over at Corvette Forum, this will be the last leak for the foreseeable*future, kicking off a fresh round of speculation and once again propeling*GM*to the top of the news cycle as we wind down the final days of 2017.*

    I know they stayed away from DOHC because it was to tall, so I assume being rear engine there is additional room for a taller DOHC engine.

    Can't wait to see this in a Caddy!
