    Modding has been fun, but I'd definitely keep a new V bone stock. Except possibly a tune. And a maybe pulley swap when someone figures out how to do that without screwing something up. And body color powder coating for the chrome. And !amber. And a shift kit. Hawk pads. Cross-drilled rotors. CAI.

    Oh shit...

    Exclamation Re: So now does anyone still think the CTS-V will be 600 hp?

    Hello,
    I don’t think they would leave out the intercooler. When corporate builds forced induction motors they are always concerned about heat and efficiency. They would most definitely have the intercooler integrated into the blower. Its a really good design and offers great runner length. They are also using stack plate intercoolers vs. the old laminova cooling rods that are in the 4.4 N* Engine. This will help a great deal!

    They are using carbon on the CTS-V, how much, who knows.

    As for changing out the pulley....Have fun with that one. It is a non serviceable part that would require you to machine the non serviceable bolt out of the pulley. There are also a bunch of non-serviceable parts on the blower that need to be taken care of with extreme caution. If you damage anything on the blower you will be required to purchase an entire new blower assembly. Furthermore there is the electronics side of the equation. It would be too easy for the computer to accept the extra 2-3 psi you throw at it and not raise any red flags, right? We have a lot of data on how Cadillac manages the boost on these vehicles. The good news is, we have already started working on a few designs for this new application. Just thought we would give a little bit of helpful information.

    Thanks,

    Dr. Design

    The LS9 in the Vette has the intercoolers and along with the supercharger assembly adds 100lbs to the front end.

    So the CTS-V will probably weigh an easy 4000lbs unless measures are taken to reduce front end weight thru aluminum or carbon fiber.

    I am pretty sure the N* is not the LS. How can you be so sure about the specifics of the pulley assembly when no details have been released? Not saying you are wrong, simply hoping for the best

    Re: So now does anyone still think the CTS-V will be 600 hp?

    Hello,
    Let's just say we have a few friends in Detroit, Wixom, Lansing, etc... Our information is good. Plus we have a great deal of research and development with the Cadillac engines as well as other GM motors. Remember, nothing has been "formally" released....Certainly hope for the best, just wanted to make sure you have a small dose of reality for this new motor. If GM sticks to their typical program, they left about 25-30% on the table. Just have to be smarter than the hurdles they put in place to keep you from getting it unlocked!

    Thanks,

    Here's a nice possible leak from Digital Corvettes:

    550 HP

    550 torque

    TR6060 six speed manual (same as the ZR1)

    6L90 six speed automatic (same as XLR-V and STS)

    No AWD

    19" wheels

    PS2 tires

    I heard the rear is very similar to the Vette but not billet.

    Guys, the past accuracy of the leaker has been verified by Florian, and the numbers above have been verified by another reputable source that you all know.

    If so, then bravo GM. With that torque this car should kick some arse.

    Latest leak from DigitalCorvettes: magnetic ride control is likely.
