      You're drawing a conclusion. In response to Billy's question about whats different I said it's got DI and continuously variable cam timing. I wish my LS7 had both and the extra cooling. No marvels there. The Infiniti G37 of a few years ago has no throttle, instead using continuously variable valve timing and lift to control torque output. BMW's and SAAB's were making ignition and fuel changes during the combustion cycle with data from piezo combustion pressure sensors 10 years ago.That is trick. The LS still has pushrods man.

      Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

        I stand corrected-Germans got it right again

        You too
        I just only wanted to correct you that the variable valve timing is not separate for each bank(which is the term for left and right row cylinders in V8,or front 3 and rear 3 in case of a I6),which would be useless.The following rant about the technological marvels was more about Tage J.I am actually a big fan of the Corvettes,and have always been,but Tage is playing it a bit too much.The same way as the C7 looks too busy.Just saying.
        And BMW's first engine without a throttle body is N20 from 2002.As you mentioned it regulates the torque output via the variable valve lift,or so called Valvetronic.The new M5 twin turbo V8 engine has no TB either,and when driven hard or on the track this car has virtually no lag.

          We all know that BMW's are the ultimate driving machine

              The correct answer to any question is always Miata, LSx or BMW.

              Mustang might be one of them now too.
