Wink buick engines

I didn't expect the supercharged holden is also an american invention. So the guys at Holden they basically don't do anthing more than unpacking the engines and re-packing it into tier cars.

And what about Tickford doing the 5.6 stroker, I don't recall them sending it off to America (Callaway in HSV's case) to get some more power out of it.

Callaway does the motor for a number of reasons - mainly because it means the engines are all installed at the same time (the C4B goes in on the Elizabeth line, so theres a time and money saving right there). Also, Callaway is only a couple of k's away from the LS1 production center ... kinda all makes sense when you think about it ...

In the article it said:

"3800 Series II V6, Rated as one of the 10 best engines of the 20th Century by Ward's Auto World"

Anyone know what other engines made that list?
