    LS2 has better low end, which is better for the V than the LS6. But the LS6 still has the hotter cam from the factory.

    The LS6 is more exotic, more rare and not whored out to every other GM offering.

I am up for a trip this fall when the leaves are changing.
    Anybody in the Atlanta area?
    I will be making a trek down from RI to NC with a few friends. We'll be hitting up all the good stuff (including the Dragon) at the end of August (25th to 28th or so).

    Hell yes. It will be a diverse group, including a Lotus Elise (driven by my cousin, who lives in NC) and Porsche Cayman S...and possibly another car or three.

    I'm new here as well, and I live in South Carolina. I would be up for a " V " meet.

    Do we want to see if we can flesh this out? Should we start a new thread? I can invite some friends and show up with a mix as well: 911, Vet, Skyline? Even if they all bail, I will drive up.... I propose we run Cherohala Skyway and Dragon Loop 120 miles of pure pleasure. Where can we meet? I would like to run the whole loop with several runs of the Dragon.

    Re: New "V" owner says Hello!

    Welcome to the forums!!! So youre from Atlanta? That where I got my 07 Light Platinum V back in March. Mine has a few more miles on it but it also had the moonroof delete which was important to me since I'm tall. It was a pleasure getting to know her over the course of the 600 mile drive home to Indiana. Have you put together a mod list yet? I highly recommend a short shifter, standard CTS center console, and most importantly MUFFLER DELETE. If you think youre getting attention now, imagine how much you'll get when your car SCREAMS every time you get on it.

    I've never run the dragon but have heard about it a lot so if you guys put together a meet let me know and I'll be there.

    Mod list yes, is the wife buying into it? Not yet. Got a few big deals on the table, all I need is one to go good. I would like too hear your car you close?
    Tint, V1, anti-hop axle fix, CAI, iphone cable would be cool. Never emptying gas tank!

    Tint and antihop axles are on my list too. FYI CAI wont gain you much unless youre running forced induction. Definately get the CAGS eliminator if you dont have it already, that skip shift can be quite annoying. And be careful about the "always emptying gas tank". Many people have found that the gas gauge gets a little unpredictable towards the bottom of the tank. I got stranded once in the street right in front of the gas station because I tried to stretch it too far. You dont realize just how heavy that car is until youre trying to push it by yourself. I recommend gassing up the moment the needle hits the 1/8th mark to prevent any "surprises". As for hearing my exhaust, you'll probably have to wait for a "dragon meet" as I live up in Indiana. However if you find yourself in the area though let me know and we can meet up.
