is a good point. In relation to this, this car is going to cost alot... 50000+

and when you do the math the turbo's are going to be smaller as to not waste money, im expecting something super ship in holdens version, maybe a T28 ha who know but to get the actual heart of what im saying you only need to drive and commodore around a corner at speeds of 70km/h+ to see that they are a piece of s**t, well stock anyway...

If we really do see a twin turbo V6 commodore, I'll have to get that engine installed so I can go out and beat them. Or twin turbo the VW? :mrgreen:


Twins on the Krautwaggon would be more fun.


Hmm force induced boxer wheelies! That would be better than both ford and Holden combined!!

Seen a GE6 turbo smoked out a Holden R8 no worries last Wed, lots of torque - I'm hoping the tranny stands the all that torque on low revs for its lifetime...

sure isnt the only engine. But its still the best, v6 motors are more popular due to size and fitting them into more cars not because v6 are better. As long as we are clear on that I6 > V6

Hahahaha....
A VF Turbo V6 is not going to happen....
The main reason why there are not going to be any power increases for the Australian VFs is because Holden is concentrating heavily on fuel economy.
Also a Turbo V6 would cannibalise sales of its V8 models, and bring further model complexity to the Commodore range.
(Holden has already said that there are too many variants of the Commodore, and it will be dropping 2 models in the VF range).

Historically Holden will not fit a new engine or drive train to a fresh new model (I.E. major sheet metal or interior changes).
The tend to do it to existing models, to freshen them up in the market place, whilst also testing the drive train out for the next future models...
Some examples....
VR->VS with the Ecotec engine
VT->VTII with the GEN III V8
VY->VZ with the GEN IV.
VE Facelift with the SIDI and AFM motors.

There are already going to be some major changes in terms of features, interior trim and finish, and exterior weight savings, so Holden will be holding out on any major engine or drive train changes for the VF in the Australian market.

The US market is going to get the latest Gen V V8s, as they are essentially trying to push the VF as a 4 door Camaro for families.
Whether this makes it to Australia as a VF Series II Update

The only reason too. It is a space saving measure to fit the engines into smaller spaces. Have to seen under the bonnet of a Packard straight eight? Not a lot of room at all hence they went with a vee design. I6 will always poop on the v6 and the crappy sound a crumble door makes when you flatten the foot...almost sounds like a wheeze!
