    Take them to court...against Federal law to deny warranty unless a product can be proven to directly cause the failure, which is impossible with this spacer. I personally had Ford dealer void my warranty for having a K&N CAI several years ago on my new F350 6.0 diesel....brought it to another dealer and they honored it.

    We have the CNC ported throttle bodies and iceolators in stock, NO wait time!

    not to revive a thread, but what were the final results? I settled on a 3.0awd sedan a little over a year ago and kind of regret not waiting for a 3.6 to come, so I am very interested in seeing how well this worked in the 3.6 to see if I think it will help my little guy at all

    hopefully you are driving your 3.0 CTS4 in sport mode (auto stick to the right and leave it there for forward motion...no manual shifting)...I drive mine this way all the time now and find it helps over driving in regular auto...plus you get the gear indicator in red LED on your instrument panel...

    I agree about the mileage...it was listed as the same as a 3.6 but we shouldn't have to worry about the oil burning/cam chain issues they do...

    They are basically the same engines, at least architecturally I am told.

    Starting in 2010 the 3.0 and 3.6 both have cast iron cylinder liners which solve the oil burning issues of earlier engines.

    I didn't know they were related...t guess I always assumed the 3.0 was from one of GMs European subsidiaries as it only tends to get frisky in the higher rev ranges...

    When I pickup up my car with its new engine, I was able to talk with the chief mechanic for about 20 minutes. He is the one who said they are very similar, "basically the same engine" is what he said.

    Re: Product reivew: The Black Ice-Olater by VMax - Intake Phenolic Spacer

    I've read this entire thread and although it got off the original thought, its a good read. So, is there an application for the spacer on a 2012 cts 3.6??? Maybe one for a Camaro????

    The 2012> models don't need it because the intake is plastic, not aluminum like the <2011 models. There is no heat buildup in the 2012> models.
