Hi listers,

Did anyone else read with interest about this new GW engine and fuel system management system?

If I read correctly it said something like 80 percent more horse power.

If the 2.1 had about 95 HP then does this new version of our engine have 171 hp? That just can’t be right. Math is not my area. It also talked about increased torque , so this new engine sounds like a beast.

Anyone else read the description and have initial thoughts?

Not something I need now but I do plan to keep my van forever so future options are being kept in mind.

Then again by the time my 1.9 is done maybe GW will have a electric motor.

Eric Caron
