wikipedia = meh.

GMI is also off, but maddeningly enough, Roger & Me is still up there, assumedly as some sort of factual reference. Who votes for that to be removed?? 3 yes's and it's gone....

Wow, you really don't like Wikipedia! I think it's very informative, even if it is a free encyclopedia that anyone can add stuff to. Well, to each his own. Edited by corvette_dude729

Like everything on the Internet, it must be taken with a grain of salt. I think it shouldn't be used as a reference for any kind of serious research, but for my own information it's great.

Wow, you really don't like Wikipedia!  I think it's very informative, even if it is a free encyclopedia that anyone can add stuff to.  Well, to each his own.

I've had running arguments with people there who've been clearly in the wrong ('The '48 Tucker is a V-6!'), and I can smell the reasons thru the phone lines: 'I'm a regular contributor, I don't know who you are but as the self-appointed WikiSentry, I must revert your edit!'. Other times the editorial agendas come thru loud & clear, requiring extensive number crunching to prove to them they are, as known before checking, wrong again.

Like dart sez- for general overviews it's fine, but for specific info- don't make any bets using Wiki as your proof.

It was a 13.6L OHV VVT DOD V16 90 degree block. It had a single intake manifold, which must have been huge. You could say it was 2 6.8L V8s, which I think was the rumored displacement of the C6 Z06 engine, but that got changed as we all know. The XV12 was a 750 hp DOHC V12 that was N* based if I remember right it was 7.5L It also had DOD, a pretty cool concept on a DOHC engine. Also remember the 4.3L XV8 a 75 degree V8 that was DI, VVT, Twin cam in block, and 3 valve headed. That engine sounds really, really cool.
