Well I mean LS series engines - pretty much all the popular GM V8's since '97 starting with the LS1. That's when the pump moved to the front, driven by the crank.

That's irrelevant. A 3.7L Mustang weighs 300lbs less than a 3.6L Camaro. The Camaros 20HP lead isn't going to overcome the two extra passengers is hauling around all the time.

Yep, with the 3.7L came dual exhaust tips. It's also and easy way to spot Challengers with the old, slow, 3.5L (single tip). Not that the newer V6 in those is a rocket ship, heavy as those whales are...

....actually, the V6 Mustang is as fast - or faster, than a V6 Camaro. That particular example is a 4.0L car, and is a lot slower. The 3.7 though, is pretty fast for a 6 shooter.

A power source is a power source. Tons of things in your car are sharing a power wire. You can put 50 things on one power wire so long as the wire can handle the load.
