Thread: Sign the Automotive Apocalpyse is Near

  1. #1

    Default Sign the Automotive Apocalpyse is Near

    Behold: the Malibu Maxx SS. 18" factory rims. 240hp (whoa baby!). Slushbox standard. Deliriously bad.





    Editorial note: this is interesting: Variable valve timing is used to bolster performance, enhance economy and reduce emissions. An electronically controlled cam phaser provides for infinitely variable adjustment of camshaft timing in relation to the crankshaft. By electronically controlling the camshaft, the optimum location can be selected for various engine operating conditions, maximizing torque and horsepower outputs. The 3.9L V-6 is the first production cam-in-block engine to incorporate cam phasing. GM’s new, more powerful E67 engine control module directs the valves’ opening and closing sequence.

    Did we step back in time or something? I haven't heard that phrase in awhile.

    Cam in Block with Cam phasing (or variable valve timing products). I do belive that is a first!
