Here's the thing, a TT V6 can and will be found in normal vehicles. IF there was a TT V8 it would only be in a high end Camaro or Corvette. These TT V6's can be had for cheaper than a N/A V8 and can be tuned to have some wicked power.

You need to cool your jets and stop projecting. I never said "my" anything was better then "your" anything. I would never make such an arrogant statement and never to the detriment of anyone else.

I simply said "A" twin turbo V8 would provide higher performance numbers than "A' similarly aspirated V6. I never said I had either one and I have no clue what you have anyhow.

You might as well be taking me to task for stating that 23 is higher then 12 or V comes after J. I merely made simple statements of facts that do not deserve your sarcastic rebukes.

For the record:

A car with 2 TTV6 engines is better than a car with one TTV8.

Cheaper??? I doubt there cheaper then a v8 that is a simpler design and less complex when it comes to packaging it into a car/truck but I would love to see a main stream ttv6 all across the GM line up-more mpg's,more low end torque,cheaper insurance and just plain cool.

Maybe you need to cool your jets and not take things out of context. The point is a you and a few are trying to turn this into another V6 vs V8 bashing thread when the rest of us are trying to talk about the potential new offerings from GM. THE ACTUAL THINGS THAT MAY BE ON THE TABLE, NOT SOME HYPOTHETICAL TTV8 THAT MAKES YOU (coloquial you, not literal you) FEEL BETTER THAN OTHER PEOPLE (not me specifically) WITH 2 LESS CYLINDERS.

Maybe you need to spool down your turbos and stop making hypocritical accusations of incorrect context. The point is that I am just stating facts and you are jumping to wild conclusions based on what appears to be some sort of insecurity related to some engine specification. If you have a beef with "a few others" take it up with them. I don't speak for a group.

Stop trying to put down someone who contributes facts to a discussion because I cannot read your mind and know beforehand which facts to avoid mentioning to avoid triggering your capitalized defensive emotional outbursts.

Have a swell day!

So, if you already make two engines and can add a turbo to either one of them for the same amount of work/cost, when why limit the turbo to the wimpier of the two?

That's what we're talking about.

the words highlighted are you're opinion and not fact. gretchen makes a valid point of what your stance is about v8's vs v6's, you should apologise to him and this forum, imvho.

I apologise for not understanding, but what do you mean that "her owner might." ?

No problem! Always give my vehicles a female name so the anonomous nature of the web makes it confusing.
