the 3.7L

Recommended Posts

maybe dwight would be able to answer this the best...?

the stang's 3.7 isn't DI'd...? should it yield the ~15%hp & ~7%torque more when ford does do that to it? ...+3%more mpg?

then what can GM do to stay in the lead in HP with the 3.6?

move this thread if need be.

FYI those numbers would come out to 350 hp, 300 ftlbs and 20 city 32 hwy epa. That would be beyond sick. I feel like the GM 3.6 is a great mill but its due for an update. It's been around in 304 (or should I sa 312) hp trim since the 2008 CTS debut in 2007. Ford's 3.7 is only minimally larger in terms of displacment and makes slightly less hp with slightly more torque without DI. It is set up so it can support DI, Ford's just holding back at this point because they don't "need it" to compete.

I know. Thats why I want to know what else GM can do with the 3.6. I'm sure it has room to grow but GM hasnt done anything with except make the 275 hp HO variant for the first year of the lambdas and then the DI version. IT's been a while and it's do for an update...

I am looking forward to the new GM 3.o TT. Should be fun to see a small gm v6 with torque again.

Ford's 3.7 and 5.0 are both preped for DI. They just don't need it now because even with normal FI they are so powerful and fleviable thanks to their twin VVT.
