    As said before the LS9 throttle body is in a weird location so there is a high chance it could be a carbon fiber OTR similar to the W427 OTR that was used previously.

    Looking for colder IAT's? we have achieved 11c IAT2 on a 41c day and -8c during winter.
    We have proven cabin AC vent temps are better than GM spec, both IAT2's and vent temps are all on video with nothing to hide.

    Yeah the more you mention the LS9 the more I believe its happening. TBH it ****ing has to. Who in this day will pay an extra 30+ k of 30kw without it coming with exclusivity.

    Local carbon-fibre parts tipped to appear on hot Commodore V8 in 2016

    Who's to say it's going to be a sedan?

    I'm Guessing 460KW and 800NM, as opposed to the ZR1 power rating of 476KW and 819NM.

    carbon boot/bonnet door skins, as they say parts that only require a one side finish are much cheaper
    to make.

    If you could buy carbon parts for a 13/15 HSV that would save 200kg thats 10% less weight how much
    power would it take to equal that? 80kws and what would it be worth in mods, no warranty issues guaranteed
    fuel saving and would stand out but not too much and you could take your parts off for sale
    the commodore went from 1550 to 1850 kgs due to airbags and speakers and cables.
    the V8 supercar stripped is about 450kgs less that a VF after all the race add ons.

    why don't we use optical fibre cables in car it does bend and can be joined, runs front to rear
    of a car would save some weight and ofca is not that costly now you would be using ofca cables
    now from your tv to blueray player/sound system. cheers

    460KW according to rumors on the other thread but I hope it's not detuned and we get 476KW
