I'd like to see a turbocharged 2.4L DI engine in there. That would easily pass the 300hp mark.

I'd like to see a performance diesel, but then if that's the case, we know it won't make it's way over here :angry:

well first off let me just say i love the GT... its so nice looking... has the sharp lines i kinda wanted from the solstice (altho the solstice is beautiful too... i just wanted sharp lines) and also... decka... what do you mean it wont make its way over here? is there talk of them bringing this over? or do you mean the deisel engine wouldnt be in the sky? as far as powertrain for an OPC model... is the 2.4 with 260 horse turbo'd? bcuz if its not then it would make sense to just turbo it... if it is... maybe a small s/c or turbo 6?

Dear God. There is no 2.4 with 260 hp, it's a Turbo 2.0 L with GDI and CVVT, and there will be no turbo 2.4, there is a reason they use the standard-bore 2.0 for forced-induction applications.

OPC, VXR and HSV go beyond GMPD in that they are directly involved in engineering and/or running race cars. Could OPC/VXR squeeze more hp out of the 2.0 Turbo? My guess would be a Twin Turbo system like the previously developed 1.9 L diesel, or the latest Twin Turbo 2.8 L V6 in the Aero-X.

I didn't know it was because of durability that they only used the 2.0 bore. Maybe they could try combining a supercharger and a turbocharger like in the new VW 1.4L engine.

Or 4 turbochargers like the Veyron 8)

1 turbo per cylinder? I dont think that would be too efficient. twin turbos would work just fine, using a smaller turbo to spool quickly, and a larger turbo for more high rpm boost.
