    New 5.3

    Anyone notice on the United Arab Erimates (chevy worldwide/UAE) that they have a 344 hp 5.3? That would be great competition for the Hemi if GM decided to bring it over here.

    Never noticed that. Good eye kain01. I'm gonna have to check that out now. It's a little mind boggling, the fact that the North American market gets something, and the Middle Eastern market gets the same thing, with more power. They get RWD Chevy's, 5.3L motors with more power. GM could do with bringing a couple things from UAE, here.

    Two words -- emissions control (or lack thereof).

    I have my 5.3 tuned with a Volant Stage II intake on it making close to 330 at the crank but I sure would love more!

    I'm starting to think if I want a good GM product maybe I need to go back overseas. J/K
