    Not to mention the obvious, but a Northstar V8 is going to have a much wider torque curve than a Honda V6. Wider curve = more usuable power.

    So, here was the RL prototype.......

    Is it pretty much identical to what the production RL looks like??

    Wow, the prototype is identical to the production model according to the pictures. The prototype appears to have the A-spec suspension.
