I disagree. If they weren't serious about continuing the Race Program they wouldn't have hired Lawson Aschenbach. The GT cars are the #1 reason I doubt the Northstar SC as the engine, since it is nowhere near durable enough for that kind of duty. Supercharged pushrod will be the choice, now it's just a matter of which one (LS3, LSA, LS7, etc...).
Plenty of race programs are wildly successful running FI engines- just ask Audi.
Lawson is quick and young,but make no mistake Andy Pilgrim is the guy they surround themselves around for results.Lots of fast guest drivers over the last couple of year but Andy's consistency and measured speed is what has delivered manufacturers(and drivers) championships for a long time.
Hmm, it's not the wires that interest me so much as to what purpose they're for. The housing looks similar to ours (dimension-wise), although [hopefully] this new one is made of steel. As for the wires, well to me it looks like one harness connects to a sensor (temperature?) and the others go to an electric motor--perhaps a pump for a remote fluid cooler? Good stuff!

Re: New '09 V Shots
the fluid line may be for a differential squirter to get the fluid everywhere and make sure the diff stays cool. this has become a great boon in the grandprix world recently. the other sensor may be for temperature to activate when the diff squirter is running.
you can simply plug both holes and retro fit it into the current chassis.
(umm pretty sure on this one, like 75%)
same getrag case mounts, same bolt holes, same position.
