I think people got too carried away on a rumor that we started here for fun,
here are the issues as I see them:
1. I doubt the V10 will fit in the falcons engine bay
2. IF it did fit it would hardly help the chassis dynamics, it would be a huge engine which would upset the handling of the car
3. The stock V10 doesn't make all that much power from memory it's like 200 odd kw, but with a fair bit of torque, In a market like we have today people look at power figures of the cars, thats why holden does so well.
4. Due to low power output above they would have to Supercharge the V10, easy enough in theory, but I would prefer to see the GTHO keep true to at least part of it's heritage: a thumping big natuirally aspirated V8, not a supercarged V8, and certainly not a supercharged V10.
But in reality, GP knows what he is doing, he knows the market and knows what needs to be done to get back on top, and he is doing all he can to get us there, have faith :s5
