346 = the LS1 5.7

The holden strokers I always thought were 350's?

It's looking good for the LS7 in a HSV's 20th anniversary GTS. Now that'd be some machine wouldn't it.

Although the suggested 125K is some what out of my reach, at least with a limited build you could expect to obtain some of you outlay in the future.

If just for the motor though, how can HSV justify in increase of what at least 50K for the inclusion of the LS7 and stronger gearbox?

If it's limited build people will pay the $125k

nope...215i and 220i = 346ci
its the same cubes as an LS1. 355 is 5.8, the stroker HSV used was 346ci also. 350ci is just a rounded off figure.

yea, but buying a walky for an investment is stupid i recon, i wouldnt buy a car for the sole reason of it being worth alot 10 years down the track, i buy a car to drive and enjoy.

If you want to make money, invest in shares, property and paintings.

Yes but if you are out to buy a weekend fun car you can either buy a brand new SS for $50k or a Walky for $50k. What will each of them be worth 3-4 years down the road?
