Good point.

If the v6 gets any type of forced induction expect atleast a head change to lower the compression ratio, which = big monies.
That's not necessarily true. The LLT does everything it does with regular 87 octane fuel. Detonation has a reduced chance of happening because of the nature of Direct Injection. It's not hard to imagine that mild boost will work fine with 92+, just like any other engine.
