WHat is this 5.4 all aloy going to be called?

We've had Clevelend and we've had Winsor, so my question is, what is this new engine going to be referred to as? '5.4-Litre-Commadore-Anihilating-Super-Donk' is great, but doesn't quite have the same ring to it. :D

Anyone know?

Also, am I reading Motor (or was it Wheels?) right when it says the base Forte is going to have a 180kw stock?! Holden better hope for divine intervention I think, either that, or yet another round of crappy base model designs to turn the general populous off the Blue Oval once again. :fmad:

Time will tell I guess.

The modular engines are called romeo's in the states I think?

So my money's on "Modular" or "Romeo".. :confused:

hmmm, modular or Romeo.

Well, if they end up calling them Modular's, then the xr club'll have to change their name to the Mod Squad. :D

Jeez, I can't wait for September next year to role around so I can see these basards on the road.

Wherefore art thou Romeo?!

yeah, I`ve allways heard them being referred to as a 'Modular'

Something to do with Ford being able to make a V6,V8 or V10 out of the same basic design.

I think it will be known as "Ballsy!"
Other suggestions are:
-Hyperdrive
-Warpcore
-Farrrkin Huge
-BFE (Big Farkin Engine)
-Merlin
-Fluxcapacitor
-DonkMaster 10000
-Swiftkick
-StonkinDonk
-Club 54
-Grinner
-Wommera
-Choppa
-Cuda (well its going into a Barra right?)

I hope they don't name it something wimpy like Modular.. My ironing board is Modular, lego is modular.. Australia should name it because we are going to use most of em..

Forte having 180Kw? I think thats optomistic, more like 165kw I would say (still going to smoke holden), I would expect there will be N/A fords jumping around with 180 or more Kw. Maybe a 180Kw engine will be optional on the Forte..

We are all expecting power gains with Barra, as Mitsubishi has lifted its power, so has Holden, so has everyone else.. And who knows about whats going to replace the I6 later on..

This may be one of the last chances to have a range of stonking engines in a car.. So lets make em good..

Still, 165 stock standard base model is pretty damn fantabulous if you ask me.

As for a name, how about a Marvin The Martianesque 'eludium q space demodulator'? :D

AV FALCON GT, 310kw. And I bet it's not even very highly worked. Imagine what'll happen when they release a new GTHO! :CraZ:

My bet is either Romeo or Modular 5.4.

Oooh yeah can't wait for the GT, if the 250kw 5.6L Windsor is just a warmup we should be in for good times i say....
:D :D

About time they gave engines decent names again I say. I mean, "Gen III", "LS1" and "Synergy 5000" don't exactly quicken the pulse, do they? Remeber when engines had names like Commando, Fireball, Magnum, Crossfire, BOSS......
