    Has the GM V6 3.6 motor been used in boats? I made a mill spec. wiring loom for non turbo. I'm working on the turbo loom now. I will be using one in my test boat.

    2012–2015 Chevrolet Camaro 323 hp (241 kW) @ 6800 rpm 278 lb·ft (377 N·m) @ 4800 rpm

    2016–present Cadillac ATS-V 464 hp (346 kW) @ 5850 RPM 445 lb·ft (603 N·m) @ 3500 RPM

    Anyone seen any prototypes of this motor?

    On March 21, 2007 AutoWeek reported that GM was planning to develop a 60-degree V12 based on this engine family to power the top version of Cadillac's upcoming flagship sedan. This Cadillac would essentially have had two 3.6 L High Feature V6s attached crankshaft-to-crankshaft and would have featured high-end technologies including direct injection and cylinder deactivation. If so, the twin-engine would have displaced 7.2 liters, and produced approximately 600 hp (447kW) and 540 lb·ft (732 N·m) of torque. Development of the engine was reportedly being conducted in Australia by Holden.[23]
    In August, 2008, GM announced that development of the V12 had been cancelled.[24]
