  • HSV testing supercharged V8... could Chevy SS performance mo



    Chevrolet isn't hiding the fact that a new rear-wheel-drive performance sedan - called the SS and seen in full checkered-flag regalia above - is on its way to US shores, courtesy of GM's Australian division. Past its eventual existence, though, we've been kept in the dark. How much will the SS cost? Who, exactly, will it be marketed to? And, perhaps most importantly, what will power the 2014 Chevy SS?

    As we all know, General Motors has a cornucopia of engine choices at its disposal, from standard four-cylinder engines to turbocharged four- and six-cylinder units and, of course, the classic V8. Not surprisingly, it's the upper-end of the V8 spectrum we're most curious about. According to the Aussie scribes at GoAuto.com, the SS may be getting the same rockin' and rollin' supercharged mill that so ably (over)powers the Camaro ZL1. Yes, please.

    Backing up GoAuto's assertion are some engineering mules being tested by Holden that reportedly have the tell-tale whine of a supercharger underhood. Considering that both the SS and Camaro will be sharing the same basic Zeta underpinnings, the addition of the stupid-powerful V8 seems distinctly possible. Let's hope.HSV testing supercharged V8... could Chevy SS performance model get Camaro ZL1 power? originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 12 Oct 2012 11:31:00 EST.

    Actually it's an old trick that's been around for decades. In the late 70's and early 1980's long after we lost leaded fuel we would pump AV gas from

    I've been on this site a few years now but I wasn't aware of this thread. I've never heard of adding oil to gas except in 2-cycle engines. I went back
