Re: torana the next reborn holden

What difference would that make when u have only got 2.6L to push or pull it?


I say make it another Gen 4 project
maybe an SLR-6000? Oh yeah now we're talking...and then they can do an HSV 6.7L and bring out the Big Block 8.1 as another 427 attempt?

Some people just don't like FWD cars, no matter what engine powers them. And I think there's more to it then the size of the engine, there are also things like total weight / weight distribution / over/understeering...

For example, a 2 litre, 4 cyl engine in something like an Escort goes pretty well. A 4 cyl engine in something like an Lotus (can we say featherweight car?) goes even better...

lol, hell no. That was something to do with the indy cars I think.

This is the sort of car my dad would love, he can't stand fwd cars (and Fords for that matter, but he doesn't seem to mind driving mine ) but doesn't want a car the size of a commy or falcon. They are just to big, he doesn't need the room in them. A new Torana would be perfect. Only problem maybe that he wants features, and this car from that report maybe to cheap it that area :hrm:

i'm a bit puzzled as to why they would use an imported engine instead of say a cut down (feature wise) 2.8L HFV6 built locally.
