    Oh yeah, that's the only way to go! If the biggest and best have done it, it must make sense! Just look at what the E63 AMG wagon does to the V wagon with all that extra torque.

    Maybe they are testing both supercharger (LT4) and turbo motors. There was a previous spy video that sounded very supercharger like to me. Will be interesting to see what they choose. I just want a manual option with whatever it is!

    They might be testing both. Turbos do have the advantage of a flatter torque curve with advance wastegate control which is better for mid range power. Blowers have the advantage of better offline performance by building boost earlier/faster and with AFM will have better gas mileage than a twin turbocharged motor and the motor will weigh less. With the improved airflow of the screw type blower on the LT4 GM is getting very close to the efficiency of a turbo with a much wider range of operation at that efficiency that turbos can't match. My bet is the gas mileage will win the battle which will most likely be the LT4.
