    Tony, I can't remember. Are you a Caddy service guy, a sales guy, or none of the above?

    Cadillac Salesman for 8 years. But don't let that fool you- I'm actually a pretty nice guy. Sometimes I tell people at parties that I'm a crack dealer to avoid the look I get when I say "Salesman".

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    At least you're a knowledgeable one. I don't want to tell you all the BS things my sales guy told me when I test drove my '05 V. He basically knew one thing: "It's pretty fast!"

    He was right.

    All I've seen is mention in some car mags, I guess we have to wait and see it.

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    I don't know why people are freaked about "WIRES" ....oh no..."WIRES"...what shall we do!!! All I said was that the Chassis and rear suspension config will be near Identical, so "high" probability it will retrofit without major issue. I didn't say an exact fit. Anyhow, if people have been going to great lengths (Ie Freaking custom 9" setups on complete new subframes for many thosusands of dollars) I don't see why we are being so defeatest about some wires. That all I am saying the subject untill I order my new V in 2010 sometime...

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    The reason for the "freakout" on the wires is simple:

    If the new diff is electronically controlled, there's no retrofitting it unless someone manages to write the necessary software to control it and make it compatible with our PCM.

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    Heard a rumor today from a guy whose "connected" though I'm not sure how well connected he is. Definitely knows a lot people and has lots of contacts.

    He says the new CTS-V will have an LS7, BUT -- and here's the rub -- he says it'll not be the same engine as what's in the Z06 at present, but will have slightly less robust internals and about 460-ish hp.

    I'm just passing this on for what it's worth.
    '05 CTS-V, Maggie, Kooks, Hotchkis, Ground Control, Corsa, B&M, DSS/Hendrix, Full 3M Clear Bra, Autovation, V Headrests, CTS Console, STS-V 55w Fogs, Black Vette FRCs, Specter Werkes, Katech LS9 Clutch, SS Brake Lines, Heavymetals U-Turn Fuel Line Eliminator, Momo Combat Evo Shift Knob, Wldwhl Clear Sidemarkers, Linea Corse LC855 Wheels, plus a couple more. Mustang dyno'd at 472 RWHP/411 RWTQ.

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    It will be a 7 liter SUPERCHARGED LS7 good for 550 to 600 hp - just like advertised in the attached video. Why would GM waste their time on anything less than what the competition has to offer now?http://www.motortrend.com/av/future/...adillac_cts_v/

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    A decontented LS7 seems plausible for cost savings - Remove the dry sump, fancy connecting rods, etc...

    Wires = electronic limited slip differential.

    Just put a toggle switch on the old Vs - Flip the switch on for Detroit-locker mode and off for the classic one-wheel-wonder.

    That's what I said months ago, LS7, but not hand built. Add a supercharger (seems certain from the hood in the spy photos) and 600 hp (what MT is claiming) sounds about right.

    This could all just all be clever manipulation by GM you know. What are you going to do with 600 hp anyway? Get sideways at 70 mph?
