Vy2 Gts

The updated HSV website has future links to GTS sedan / coupe to order for 2004. If there wasnt anything significantly different about this car, they would have it on their website now. Also 285kw, is so close to 300kw, it doesnt make 300kw seem that powerful for a GTS anymore.... Does anyone feel a 6.2litre 350kw around the corner? Also CSV (Corsa Spacialized Vehicles) are using the 6.2, I believe Mercruiser are using a marine version of it too...

Re: Vy2 Gts

Well Motor profiled that Clubby a long time ago which was running the 6.2L, and it's been talked about for quite a while. Would be surprised if it didn't happen!

Looks the same to me! Where I work I come across all sorts of Car related goodies. (usually manuals and catalougs) Mainly Holden/HSV shit but the odd Ford product turns up now and then. Ill have to have a read on Monday!

Re: Vy2 Gts

Another factor is that Holden publically promised something special in light of the HRT427C's demise. The challenge for the 6.2 was emissions as I recall - hopefully they'll be able to work it out.

Re: Vy2 Gts

how do you know CRUSHU F150? I reckon they will drop GTS all together. They will bring it back with a 6.2L stroked Gen4 (not actually sure when it comes out) around the same time as ford brings out a Supercharged GTHO. Thats my bet anyway.

Re: Vy2 Gts

I thought gen 4 would be the same capacity. does anyone actually know anything or it's we are all going by what magazines speculate?
