    Slugs but still quicker than the almost revered (these days) 220 wheezer.

    no argument from me, I've agreed, I forgot to add 220 in my previous post.
    Hence why I shifted it for the 250stroker.
    I would have gone backwards in the 260, even if given to me I would have flipped it quick smart.

    No I just meant the auto vs manual. Once the ZF appeared in the BF it was all back to normal.

    I interesting insight into Holden's approach with the car.
    That said, my interest is quite remote and I'm still unconvinced by the body shape and proportions, or that this is a car that will resonate with Holden's performance enthusiasts. Personally speaking, my connection with Holden was the locally built aspect of the current car and its GM 'Chev' underpinning, now all of which are gone. I'm not suggesting for a moment that it isn’t a good car, in fact I'm sure it will be but it all sounds, and looks, very pedestrian. In the context of excitment its about on par with a Hyundia Sonata at the moment.
