Well...first off, there's two things you need to take into account.

#1, the engine 'names' are as follows :

Manual V8 = LS3
Automatic V8 = L99 (basically an LS3 with AFM)
Auto/Manual V6 = LLT

and #2; generally speaking (what you said above, just different words)--If you take V8 and a V6, and pump the same amount of money into both, the V8 will still produce more power. How much more depends on what you actually do to them...

The V6 is equipped with Direct Injection, which opens up new possibilities. Until the aftermarket gets ahold of the car, though -- I wouldn't know what to tell you in regards to potential. What does everyone else think?
