:blink: Waaaaaiiiit... a Northstar-V8-Twin Turbo???? Is it me or did that come out of left field?
Doesn't GM already have a supercharged Northstar V8 rated at 450+HP??

I wouldn't mind either, so long as it had 450+ HP to keep up with the E60 AMG and RS6!!

-ME
they already have a supercharged northstar? Where?
twin turbo is hard to package, chances are its a blower pushing upper 400's.
E60? You mean E55?

I think what we will end up seeing is that the STS will get the LS7 with 500hp, the CTS might get a LS2. Something about having a the pushrod motor in the car is odd, but I guess whatever gets the job done. No one pitched a fit when they made a V16 ohv motor.

Only thing I can think of is that whatever will go into these cars will be made at the new engine plant, or at least STS and up. There is a good chance the CTS-V will get the LS2 as they share the same power raiting. The STS-V will probably get a "490hp" LS7 from the Z06. Motors made at the could be teh LS7, The V12, and a twin turbo V12 to put into the 300k Caddy. And probably a supercharged northstar.
