A new 5.5L V8 for the Camaro to battle the 5.0 Mustang?
Looks like when the C7 Corvette hits the market, it will be using a new 5.5L version of the small block chevy...possibly using direct injection to make 440hp. As weve seen in the past when the Vette gets an engine the Camaro is usually close behind...
GM actually downsizing their engine size for more power??
I would like to see a C7 concept with those .... somewhat horrible-but-cant-look-away side vent things on the front end. Maybe make those smaller and drop them a bit lower as to allow space for headlights.
That's totally a concept and the C7 I seriously doubt will look anything like that.
but yes, it's fugly.
As far as the 5.5L, IF they make the engine, it will be interesting to see if they go OHC with it, or in typical GM style manage to develop yet another badassical OHV cylinder head, and just turn more rpm with it. Manufacturing and materials tech has changed a lot over the last 10 years, and 7k rpm pushrod engines aren't difficult to achieve, especially in a higher end car like a Vette.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!
Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
