That rumor has been tossed around quite a bit over the last year or 2. I think how things stand currently is that the motor will be all raw, no displacement on demand.

Of course, no one knows anything for sure! It could have a V6.:thumbsup:

I think it would be good for a Caddy, not to sure if I would want it on a Vette.

I know I'll get bashed by this one but a Mustang is a Pony car, not a sports car.

Displacement on demand could be good. It would be like "I'm going drag racing this weekend and I'll probably need 700 cid" and poof you'd have 700 cubes

The September 2003 techbrief from the SAE's Automotive Engineering International Online has further info on the 3V versions of GM's GenIV V8 and High Value V6 engines. Frederick Rozario, Development Engineer, Advanced Powertrain, revealed that "while the added mass in the valvetrain might seem to be an obstacle to high pm operation, the Corvette engine will rev to 7000 rpm with a 30% margin of safety. It can go to 8000 rpm safely." Despite using a single cam, this engine also uses a cam phaser to vary valve timing, providing "80% of the benefit of a system with separate intake and exhaust phasers."

While the base 6.0-l engine in the C6 Corvette will produce 406 hp, the 24V 6.3-l VVT engine in development will produce 500 hp, requiring a higher-output water pump. Both 3V V8 and V6 engines with DOD and cam phasing use new oil pumps - a two stage (high and low flow) pump in the V8 and a continuously variable pump on the V6.

While this is "probably" the LS6 equivalent we don't know for sure if or when these features will be available in a production Corvette engine.
