    All new 3.6L engines are the LFX.

    At the risk of embarrassing myself, I gotta ask:

    RPO?

    LTG?

    LFX?

    RPO=regular production order code

    LFX is the code for the 3.6 currently in the Camaro and CTS. Not sure what LTG is for.

    LTG is the new 2.0T. LNF is the older 2.0T in the SKY\Sol

    Would the TTV6 get different heads/exhaust manifold then the LFX? It would seem to me that if the V gets the TTV6, the exhaust manifold could be a limiting factor to how much power it can make... That being said, it seems the LSA factory manifold flows very well, so maybe the days of restrictive exhaust manifolds are over...

    The current production TTV6 has no relationship to the LFX other than it has 6 cylinders. That said it's still possible they may screw us and integrate the manifolds into the turbochargers like the VW 2.0TFSI, but manifold to head integration? Who knows, here's to hoping that it's not though.

    The production V6 right now is a single turbo. Are you sure the LFX has no relationship with the Turbo LY7 thats found in the SRX or Saabs? AFAIK, the LFX is an updated version of the LLT, which was an LY7 with DI basically... Doesnt the LLT and LY7 use the same basic architecture?

    I understand how my wording may have been confusing. I'm speaking about the planned TT 3.0L V6 for the ATS-V, not the single turbo SRX current V6.

    All GM V6 Engines are based on the same original 3.6L Block that was in the original CTS. The 2.8L, 2.8T, 3.0L, 3.6L (all types) are all "related." They are the same "family" of engines. Like the LS2, LS3, LS7, LS9, Vortec 5.3, Vortec 6.0, & Vortec 6.2 are all the same "family."

    Just because they share a block, doesn't mean they share heads. It would be quite possible to have one new V6 with integrated manifolds, and one without.
