Both cars will make their debut at the New York auto show next week.  The GXP will have a de-tuned LS3 making about 402 hp, while the Ute will have the L76 making 361 hp.

I read on another site that there is supposed to be an announcement on the 18th about another vehicle being added to the G8 line up.  I really hope it is a coupe.

Check this out: Mustang Dyno numbers on an L76 G8 GT - these are from an auto (I guess this year they're all autos): Stock: 305 hp/315 lb-ft Tuned: 335 hp/348 lb-ft Good to know they are able to tune the new ECUs. A 30whp pickup for just a tune sounds like a turbo car... From this thread: http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=229248 Ignore the idiots who think the GTO is the greatest car ever.

Yeah I have heard of huge gains simply with tuning on that motor.  It is setup for regular fuel from the factory so tuning it for 93 octane gives you a lot more power.

lol, that's funny. I love how gm recycles the engine codes. Like they couldn't have come up with "L77".

Ponyboy,

What kind of fuel mileage did that engine get and is the 365 hp SAE certified?
