:laugh: :werd:OHV said:huh! im suprised that that the 3500 can run that fast with its tall geared 4spd. so then the camry guy with his "advanced" DOHC VVT and all that stuff is all for nay... and worse fuel econ! LOL. too funny.
yeah until u decide to high tech an OHV lolSteVTEC said::laugh: :werd:
The domestic approach: Screw all that - just make it bigger. The torque curve won't be as flat and it won't rev as high (not as much peak horsepower), but you have a lot more of it (torque), and properly geared it will be just as quick if not quicker. On top of that, since you have so much low-end (esp with pushrod OHV 2-valve configuration)
also with strengthened pushrods couldnt you technically destroke the engine a bit for high rpms? wasnt there a high revving Classic camaro one year (like a package or something)?The numbers on this engine are 240 horsepower at 5,900 rpm and 245 pound-feet of torque at just 2,800 rpm, which are commendable. What really makes the engine satisfying is that 90 percent of that peak torque is available from 1,800 to 5,800 rpm, since torque is what you need in the daily duels of urban driving. It provides plenty of juice for the low-rev driving that happens in cities, and if that's not enough GM will undoubtedly crank up an optional engine for the serious tire-burners out there.
GM canada has some aewsome stats... i assume they are the same if not VERY close...Hey where can I get the full specs for the Malibu. Esp the gear ratios. I want to build a model for it in CarTest software and see what it could do stock and with some light mods.
yeah thats true, besides we only gotta wait like 6 more months and im sure they will have more infoThere are tons of engine rumors going around so im just laying back until they show up.
Cool thanks - that was exactly what I was looking for.OHV said:GM canada has some aewsome stats... i assume they are the same if not VERY close...
:werd: if the 3500 can do this just imagine what the 3900 will do!TH23 said:Not bad for "only" 200HP
nice :up:TH23 said:I made a CarTest model on the new Malibu V6 a few months back, so I'll post up my numbers and compare them to yours :
60'- [email protected]
660' - [email protected]
1,320' - [email protected]
0-60mph - 7.82 seconds
0-100mph - 22.11 seconds
Not bad for "only" 200HP
Unfortunately, I don't know the ratios of the Tremac t-56 Once I know them, it won't be a problem:werd: if the 3500 can do this just imagine what the 3900 will do!
hey do a theoretical calculation on the 3900, use the same ratios and such as the malibu, but use the hp and torque ratings off of the 3500... or use the ratios of a Tremac t-56 since that will be the 6 spd im guessing? err thats a RWD 6spd... what FWD 6spd do they have??!
Hmmm....60' is decent, but I bet it could pull some 2.2's and run some mid-15's with a skilled driver that really nails the launch.
