There is no gap in the software. You must be pretty gullible to belive that. Everyting about that software is set up to work exactly as GM had it designed and they put a lot of thought into it...

I think you misunderstood my posts. The ordering date for 2013s has indeed ended, but the order date has nothing to do with it. It's the production date that I am referring to in my posts above. ...

I have always found it helpful to see some cars with those wheels to make a decision. The cars do not have to be a Camaro. I agree about not liking black wheels, especially on dark colored cars.

No I don't think CNC the heads is radical. I have never seen an LS in a Mustang.

So there is less than a half inch in the bore size (that is about what I thought). If the coyote used the same...

The GT500 is a 5.8 liter and it fits fine in the Mustang. The reason the base mustang has the 5.0 is because it is a historical size motor for the Mustang--not because of some "packaging problem". ...

Well, the Boss 302 is slightly hopped up, but it is not that radical. They really just did some slight changes to it, other than the forged parts which are more for reliability and not HP.

I cannot answer your question regarding why GM is still using the pushrod design in their V8 yet they don't use the pushrod design in the V6 and 4 cylinder. It defies logic.

It is not the spinning that produces the HP. It is the more efficient design of the overhead cam. It is true that pushrod motors cannot rev as high because all of that extra drivetrain (lifters,...

I don't think your "example" is great at all. Dodge cannot produce a decent overhead cam engine--no surprise there at all. The Hemi is much larger, so I hope it produces more HP.

Which one produces more HP per cubic inch, and it is not even close. Nothing you wrote is correct. The LS is a bigger motor. I guess by your logic the LS3 should produce the same HP as the LS7. ...
