The GT cars are the #1 reason I doubt the Northstar SC as the engine, since it is nowhere near durable enough for that kind of duty. Supercharged pushrod will be the choice, now it's just a matter of which one (LS3, LSA, LS7, etc...).

    Plenty of race programs are wildly successful running FI engines- just ask Audi.

    Lawson is quick and young,but make no mistake Andy Pilgrim is the guy they surround themselves around for results.Lots of fast guest drivers over the last couple of year but Andy's consistency and measured speed is what has delivered manufacturers(and drivers) championships for a long time.

    On a different note: it turns out that wearing your Pittsburgh Steeler shirt to work on casual Friday is a good way to find out who all the Oakland Raider fans are.

    Hmm, it's not the wires that interest me so much as to what purpose they're for. The housing looks similar to ours (dimension-wise), although [hopefully] this new one is made of steel. As for the wires, well to me it looks like one harness connects to a sensor (temperature?) and the others go to an electric motor--perhaps a pump for a remote fluid cooler? Good stuff!

    Wires.
    Where did you get hold of that picture? I'm liking what appears to be a fluid pump attached to that diff, as well as the exhaust routing (not sitting on 1/2" from the diff like ours).

    It was supposed to be "potential" I tried to edit to avoid the abuse, but wasn't to be my day. The topic was on the mention of the 2-door version of the CTS-V in this article:

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    Hey Urb, kind of off-topic, kind of not;

    When the next gen V (and reg CTS for that matter) hits, are you guys going to create separate forums to separate different gen discussions?

    Just a recommendation. I think you should, at least for the V.

    I was thinking it was ponytail, as in wiring.

    Actually, I was thinking of Eddie Murphy. SNL. Mr. Robinson's neighborhood.

    the fluid line may be for a differential squirter to get the fluid everywhere and make sure the diff stays cool. this has become a great boon in the grandprix world recently. the other sensor may be for temperature to activate when the diff squirter is running.

    you can simply plug both holes and retro fit it into the current chassis.
    (umm pretty sure on this one, like 75%)
    same getrag case mounts, same bolt holes, same position.
