A New Lease On Internal Combustion

mesmartyoudumb Re:New Technology (431 comments)

Some of the most popular and best sports-car engines today are pushrod v8's, and on top of that, the first ever Super Ultra Low Emission engine, made by GM, is a good ole American Super-charged pushrod motor (3800 Series III.)

Some Push Rod engines you may be aware of:

* Chevrolet Corvette 7.0L V8 Engine (505 hp, 475 lb/ft torque)
* Chrysler Hemi

As for the age-ole "Anti-American" propaganda, let's take a gander at the first engine on that list again:

It's amazing that a Corvette makes that much power, and gets 27mpg. It also is a low emissions vehicle. Was the first 500+ hp car to avoid the Gas-guzzler tax. It goes 0-60 in 3.4 seconds as tested by Car and Driver.

So just to reinforce the point: It's wayyy faster than an M6, gets wayyy better gas mileage, and costs about $30k less. Oh yeah, it's more reliable too.

You can put any car in the world up against the vette and you won't be disappointed with the results. The upgraded 650 HP version is just around the corner.

So, pray tell, WHY do you need two cams again? For no reason but Propaganda, son.
