...mmmm, I don't know. It definitely makes a lot of sense to have only one V8. I still think there will be two, but it's financially smart to offer only 1...reduce costs of producing more than one V8 in smaller numbers, than the cheaper method of having 1 large-scale V8...


this is an old post...but still, who better to know, than the almighty Fbodfather?

I'm confident you'll see three engines....but for reasons other than written here.

Which of cousre, he follows up in typical Fbodfather fashion with this...
