i find it interesting that the s6 is going to be powered by a v8 instead
of a twin turbo v6. perhaps that's because the v8 is completely debugged
while the 30V v6 is not?
i recently took a trip across mountainous country (all across, BC, into
alberta, back through montana and idaho) and the lack of a turbo at high
altitudes was never more sorely missed.
as for the 5 valve V8 it would make perfect sense from a consolidation
point of view. i'm sure it would be cheaper for them to design and build
5V heads across the range rather than to have a mix.
