However, I have no clue which C5Fest we'll see them at.


(you didn't think I'd be that clear did you? )

Beyond that? There isn't much. Its expected that they'll come in 2 displacements: 5.3L and 6.2L. I wouldn't be surprised if VVT is used on all versions of it, and I'm sure they'll make a few improvements to the AFM system too.

I don't think there are any more facts or solid rumours about them.
Thats what the rumour is

So the block won't have pressed in cylinder liners?

Could have liners, could have that new-fangled plasma deposition thingy-ma-do, could have something else.


Such specific details are not yet known.

That's what I figured.

I still feel that an LS7 Z28 is the most likely for this gen. Or maybe I'm just overly hopeful.
