    Default Cadillac clean-sheet 4.2L Twin-Turbo V8

    Power for the Cadillac CT6 V-Sport:

    255 cubic inches, DOHC, 550 HP / 627 LB-FT (90% torque available at 2,000 RPM), up to 20# boost. Extremely compact.

    https://media.cadillac.com/media/us/...-turbo-v8.html

    Inlet and exhaust sides of the heads are reversed. Exhaust ports inside the V, with two twin-scroll turbos integrated into the exhaust manifolds, all in the valley between the heads. Supposedly eliminates turbo lag.
    Speculation it may possibly be used in mid-engine Corvette, based on extremely compact size.

    Hard to tell what's what from the photos. I'm still trying to trace the intake path from the dual intercoolers hanging on each side of the engine

    It looks like it's going to be a lot of "fun" to work on. The more I look at the pictures, the more I want to see a stripped down or exploded view. I like what I'm seeing, but at the same time, I see a TON of packaging design with the aftermarket improvement/enhancement sector salivating just out of sight. Those coolant utilizing heat exchangers for one........
