Jesus Christmas. All I can say, is that will be one more headache for the owner 5 years from now.

Its a good idea, but honestly, I would like to point to an LT1 block and go look, see how the water pump is directly camshaft driven...and see how its right over the over the optispark ignition, on yeah thats a good one too. That least those were external. Brilliant ideas from GM, don't always live up to the hype.

Seriously, all they need to do is go to aluminium bodies, combined with fiberglass/Carbonfirber/Kevlar composites, and they'll hit 40MPG really quick. Not to mention start removing excessively waste like 20 way power seats, 10 speaker audio systems. Car manufacturing has really lost its way.
