3.8L VCT V6 for Barra?????

I was just looking at an article at Carpoint and they said that the AV will have a new 5.4L V8 and a 3.8L VCT V6. Heres the address: http://carpoint.ninemsn.com.au/news/story.asp?ID=3941

and 12 paragraphs down.

Theres also of what is posibly a an AV on the front of the main-page www.carpoint.com.au which has 'Confidential' on it.

The car is blue but I think it might be a T3 TS50 thats been done up with a computer.

Having seen the Barra motors, the only "V" in them is the valley between the two cams.....

Why change to an inherently unbalanced motor, when you can have the wonder smooth power of a well built I6, not some crappy V6 with a balance shaft...

Run Forrest , Run.......

Yuk! Hope its BS, if I wanted to drive a V6 I'd buy a Mondeo or a Telstar.
A 3.8l V6 why would anyone want one of those - c r a p !

Better get use to a V6 guys, the 2005 Falcon will more than likely get one, probably a 3.8 or 4.0L.

If you think they arnt as smooth as I6 go and drive a V6 Camry or Magna then drive a Falcon. :oo1: :dead:

Hell even the Nissan GTR is going V6 so they cant be all that bad....
