True, and I suppose we don't really know how well the Northstar will 
respond to a turbo, but my point is, we know that a 4.0 litre version 
makes pretty good reliable hp in the IRL engine, so I expect the 4.6 
litre version wiht a pair of turbos to make great hp for the Caddy.  It 
seems to be a strong engine, and the street version certainly runs smoothly.
