    What suspension parts have you ordered and from what company?
    Unless you've bought an entire magnetorhelogical (MRC) suspension it won't be as good as the V's. Certainly not better.
    Have you gotten your supercharger yet? What supercharger are you considering and from what company?
    Share some specifics. We'd like to know exactly how you are going about your better, faster, less expensive build.

    I wonder if you'll be able to get outta the hole faster than my truck?


    Maybe you should hang a sack under the rear bumper, because no matter what you do you be missing a pair to make that 6 banger into a man car.

    Why don't you just trade up to a V? It comes with the bumper and the engine you'll never build or equal. The money you plan on wasting could go towards the real thing.

    Re: Does the 2012 cts-v front bumper cover fit on the cts?

    Interesting. I didn't think there was much in the way of mods for the LFX engine. After googling around, I found that the Camaro guys are going nuts with both superchargers and turbos. There's even a dual turbo setup.

    V-comparable, not, but more power to you, young man, and have fun with the LFX.

    In theory, the bumper clips are interchangeable, but as you can see from the forum response, you will forever be ridiculed on the road.

    Entertaining everybody, but being a little hard on our youth. Don't you remember your dreams while growing?

    Yes, but I didn't go into their sandbox and kick them in the face while doing it. I'll bet if this was kept in the V-6 section he'd have a fan base but don't expect the home team to like hostile visitors.

    I just want the OP to tell us how much money he's spent when all is said and done. Oh, and have to have pics. I'd bet he spends more on that car than he would have just buying a mildly used V. Good luck to you young man.

    Theres really not much reason to mod a V. I would rather custom build my own unique monster. Its more fun.

    Yeah but thats ridiculous, theres no reason to have a car like that. It becomes un driveable.
