Exactly! Imagine being able to aggressively race from a dig with street tires. Or flooring it at under 40 mph without fear of the tires breaking lose and sending you into your opponents lane to trade some paint. Try explaining that to your insurance company. "You see what had happened was...."AWD, finally traction without slicks and the shitty handling that comes with them. Yay. Hopefully the AWD system can handle some serious power.
This motor is a "hot vee" with the exhaust ports in the center of the V going straight to the turbos for best response and cats can be really close to the exhaust port for efficiency.I think the motors being used are similar to whats going to be seen in the mid engine Vette
Who cares I'll never own either one of themThis motor is a "hot vee" with the exhaust ports in the center of the V going straight to the turbos for best response and cats can be really close to the exhaust port for efficiency.
The leaked 3d models of the mid engined vette show intake plenums in the inside of the V of the engine and the turbos mounted to the sides of the motor like older turbo V8's.
It might be similar architecture for the block but I would guess not much else is the same with the two engines. This one in the CT6 is for max torque and low end response. The mid engine vette will want higher revs, more power, etc.
What I find interesting about this article is back in 09 GM was going to build a new V8 diesel for its 1500 series trucks and Yukons/Tahoes. That could have been a serious game changer for the light truck markethttps://jalopnik.com/this-twin-turbo-v8-is-the-first-cadillac-only-engine-in-1823954491
4.2L TT V8
Individually hand built/signed
I don't particularly care either I was just pointing out a large potential difference indicating its not "the same" engine in the two. This is a forum where people discuss things about cars...Who cares I'll never own either one of them
I just thought it sounded familiar when the article said there will be two versions of the TTV8 for the CT6. They said the same about the Vette having two TT options
