This is a GM HFV6, same as the SIDI in the VF. That was only 210/350.
So how did the new donk get the extra herbs?

I don’t think it is Australian HFV6 as in LFX, is LGX and massively different.
250 kW NA start stop AFM trick AF V6. Excellent future crate swap for VE/VF.

Interesting it is 250 kW in the RWD Caddy. But in their CT5 (east-west engine), it has less power as in the ZB

... it is called advertising and marketing

OF COURSE the new car/model makes more horsepower than the old one ;)

We have always had lower power levels in the GM engines in Australia. LFX in Camaro 245kw, 210 (91 RON) in Commodore. I believe it's to do with emission control systems.

I got told on one model cant remember which one it was that the Holden had slightly less power because it was tuned to develop torque lower in the rev range then the U.S. one to suit our driving style here.

My other car has 450Nm through the front wheels. It's not the best setup, the front of the car tries to leave the rest of the car behind
