So, I know there's a TON of engines GM has, some that are a bit of an overlap from the others.

What do you guys think of this engine lineup, as I use in the My Ideal Lineup series?

DI Ecotec 1.6L - 140 HP
DI Ecotec 2.4L 0 -180-200 HP
DI Ecotec Turbo 1.8L - 240 HP
DI Ecotec Turbo 2.0L - 300 HP

DI 2.8L - 260 HP
DI 3.6L - 320 HP
DI S/C 3.6L - 380-400 HP

DI 5.3L - 350-400 HP
DI LS3 - 450 HP
DI LS7 - 550 HP
DI LSA - 600 HP
DI LS9 - 650-700 HP
DI Northstar II/Ultra 4.6L - 350 HP
DI NII/U 5.0L - 450 HP
DI S/C NII/U 5.0L - 560-600 HP

"Mightytec" 1600 - 150 HP/220-240 lbs-tq
"Mightytec" 1800 - 200 HP/280-300 lbs-tq
Duramax 6800 - 380 HP/700-750 lbs-tq
(Used "Mightytec" as thats what I've called it in my series, but w/e GM would call it...)

Now, I'm not listing any V10+ for now. Thoughts? Improvements? Your own ideas? Please post!

We've already got the LS series, 5.3L, and the Northstar (ultimately, I'd like to see an Ultra V8 or Northstar II replace the current Northstar lineup). As such, Vortec I dont see the need for. The 5.3L would fit well enough in a tuned up 380 HP version for the upper level. If we must, drop in an LS3 to kick the butts out of the other guys top V8's... and a DI 320 HP V6 would do wonders as the base engine IMO. Or a detuned 5.3L.
