    What are the major differences between the two, apart from the obvious 10kw bump and 20nm bump. Is it still classified as the L76 that's been tweaked or is it a completely different version of the GEN 4?

    Few questions I've been having trouble finding answers to.

    Sorry if this has been posted else where, if it has a point in the right direction would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Its renamed. It was L76, its now L98.

    From memory its a cam change and somebody told me the removal of the DOD hardware.

    You sure its being renamed the L98? Where did you hear this? I wouldnt think it would be given a higher number than the L92 6.2L?

    The verdict is still out whether DOD actually makes a huge difference in fuel consumpion. But still having it is a great marketing tool, as seen in the 300C ads.

    If DOD DOES make a difference, I'd hate to see the 300C without it... they swallow so much fuel it aint funny!

    It's also referred to as have the codename of L98 on http://www.drive.com.au/ve

    Doubt it's the official name though. That wouldn't make sense.
