New V8 for HSV...

http://www.callawaycars.com/From_hom...actrelease.htm

The new contract calls for additional Callaway-tuned engines to be built for the 2003 and 2004 model years

Callaway most recently has applied its mastery of racing and performance engine technology to producing a 6.2-liter 480-hp version of the LS1 engine. This "stroked" derivative of the 5.7-liter V8 is designed to deliver up to 475 foot-pounds of torque, depending on application. Callaway's latest high-performance powerplant is available to both retail and manufacturer customers worldwide.

So HSV may have access to a ready 6.2L 360Kw V8.

Can the 5.4L be tuned to a simular amount? ~67Kw per litre out of a fairly long stroke motor might be a big ask, naturally asperated.

I wonder why HSV can't engineer their own 6.2? Or their own 300kw for that matter..[/UselessPartOfPost]

Seriously though, Can anyone say VY HRTE 6.2L GTS? Here is your 6.2L people...

No surprises here. All part of their desperate scheme to always be ahead in outright kW. Where will this desperation eventually lead them I wonder!

Will be interesting to see how they market themselves, being full of talk about changing the focus of the company to become a more "real alternative to Europeans"...

Time to fly the flag!

i don't think that HSV will go 360kW, imagine the MP's. If they do though...it will piss me off.

Maybe they will do what Nissan and toyota do..

Every engine makes 206kw. From a 2.0L all the way to a 4.5L.. From naturally asperated to turbos to twin turbos.. 206kw for everyone.

300kw and 300+kw..

I can't see power levels staying at 300Kw for ever.. Soon a 6 cylinder Forte or Holden executive will have 200kw.

As for the politicans.. Maybe times have changed. Holden has a export market it can sell to even if the local is outlawed.

Even if they do bring out the 6.2L it won't be anytime soon. Probably will be in the VZ commodore or something. Still, it leaves plenty of time for ford to react. And in answer to the question of the 5.4, its more than up to the chellenge, as ford US has had the motor up to 375kw naturally aspirated, with no stroker. So not really a cause for a alarm just yet.

I would say The next GTS or flagship model for the next few years anyway, will have the same CB4 Callaway engine but not detuned. Undetuned the Engine makes 450hp, or 335kw.

I don't recall anycar from Ford US with the 5.4L making 375kw N/A. I've heard of the 373kw (500hp) GT40 concept which made that amount, but it was a supercharged all-alloy engine.

As i've said in other posts, this is cause for alarm , people. In relation to government intervention, a valid point about intervention ruining Holden exports makes sense, It's a different climate to 1971.

Another interesting post is the fact that the V10 ( I know I sound like a cracked record) is being tested in the US in the crown vics... the 5.4,may be the dogs bullocks, but it is good enough to beat the best HSV will offer ( ie calloway 6.2 and 7 litre)?

My concern is that in FORDS fear to release the V10 due to government intervention, HSV go ahead and release a 6.2 and eventually a 7 litre anyway, while FORD is left scratching its head.

Where does that leave FORD? always one step behind......
