    GMI Engine Guide

    Hey guys,

    I'm in the process of updating the GMI Engine Guide. I know some of you have been eager to see it updated, so I thought I would throw it out there that I am updating the code as I go. As of now I am at the ECOTEC 2.4L.

    https://www.gminsidenews.com/index.php?page=Engine_Guide

    Question: If we could put a dyno graph of the hp/torque for each engine on it...would you guys like that? I'm not making any promises, but its something I'm considering.

    Yes, please include the SAE certified power graphs that seem to elude some of the competition.

    Great idea! I'd like to also see a similar approach to platforms, the ins and outs of each, so that we could readily see and understand each platform.
    Could you include the bore and stroke on each engine?

    Might be interesting to include the year the engine began production.

    You are the man nsap!

    Finally my year long crusade has been accomplished, all is good.
    "At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."

    That's a herculean, gargantuan and sisyphean task all in one, and no words of praise can accurately express what needs to be said. Thank you.

    That said, I think you've missed the smaller Family 0 engines:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_Family_0_engine

    I think they are being made in Austria alongside the 1.4.

    There are also the Fiat-GM Powertrain diesels (1.3 - Bielsko-Biała, Poland and 2.0 - Kaiserslautern, Germany) as well as the dreaded 1.7 Circle-L Isuzu diesel (Tychy, Poland)

    At the moment the guide will only have GMNA engines. GM does not provide enough details on the global engines to make adding them anything less than a royal pain.

    I'm hoping that you include everything known about the genV V8s, up to and including rumors and speculation.
    Anyway, good job!

    Please do that nsap!

    For my Christmas present, can you make a guide that lists all of GM's discontinued engines from 2000+?

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    NSAP, I can't remember the last time I looked at the engine guide, looks very nice, one thing that would be good would be to include the number of posts required to get to that engine, I know we have stickies and all but including a line similar to "Active after *** posts" would be a good consolidation of information and a better way to keep it current. That or unsticky the existing post, and sticky a new one with the current engine type/post count & lock it so it is quicker to get to.
    Talk is cheap, sometimes it is on sale.
