There's been plenty of talk of HSV bringing out the LS7. See what happens. And Hussy as far as ford copying other car manufacturers, what else were they supposed to do? Invent a whole new system of forced induction? They really only had three options and turbo was the best. And the SV6 doesn't "smash" the xr6 but it does beat it in the tests that I've seen, still though it's pretty close.
