gm has used toyota engines in the past(geo prizm's had corolla engines). the cadillac 16 is real and it supposedly produces 1000hp, it was on motor trend.

I wouldn't be surprised if the info in that article was legit- I haven't read up on the new Malibu, but I do know that Honda remapping their engine rotations to the "traditional" clockwise direction was prompted partly by the possibility of outsourcing engines to other companies. Hell, Mitsubishi, Toyota, and Suzuki have done it for USDM manufacturers- why can't Honda?

Yup. One of the older Rovers used the ZC, and the Lotus Elise is available with an ITR engine.

<---- thought the Type-R powered Elise was a custom job
:owned:

I think it is, but one way or another, it is available with an ITR engine in it. I didn't say it was sold like that from Lotus themselves.

:owned: :lol:
