I wouldnt be supprised if HSV's VY model will be apowered by the same 275kw/530nm LS1 variant found in that boat they had.
On the same token I see the SS commodore to be put upto around 250kw. I couldnt imagine Holden upping the power of the base model. As it is a base model, they could now finally have it's power as base power, rather than beeing the same as the SS.
I also reckon Holden won't detune the Callaway donk. I predict as the 6.2L won't be out for a while, and HSV know that frod will release a 300+ kw car next year. So what I reckon will happen is Holden will just get the callaway enhanced CB4 motor with 450hp out of the box, without detuning it. This would probably work out cheaper than the 300kw donk, while fuel cnsumption and emissions won;t go that much up. Either that or holden will get LS6 donks befroe making thier own in Melbourne.
