    I am pleasantly surprised by the look. I was afraid it was going to be a little bland. That's certainly not the case.

    I for one am VERY happy to see a much different "face" than the standard CTS. The V needs it's distinctive look...and it's got one. Hell yeah. BRING IT ON!

    Re: disappointed by 09 V

    It would only be "rice" if it were non-functional. In the V, of course, it is functional.

    In any case, I like the look of the front, it is definitely aggressive.

    GAK, did anyone notice this:

    . Thank gawd. Would it be too much to ask for them to release an iron version for the GenI V, say through GM performance? (That's a rhetorical question, as we all know the answer is NO.)


    I wonder what the rwhp of this thing will actually be?

    550*.80=440 ?? I hope to be near that number after my cam install

    NO!!! You have a 550hp car with 550 torque, you want the people around you to hear its sound!

    Those noise reduction features are the first thing I'm eliminating.

This appears to be a car designed for performance. I can't wait.

    Hindsight is 20/20. Just remember that the V1 is the car that started it all and could be the turning point for the Cadillac brand. The V2 should and must be a better car, but remember without the old wheel hoppin, button flakin, sloppy shifter car that started it all there would be no V2. The V1 will go down as the first real American sports sedan capable of world class status and despite it's shortcomings is still a great car. BTW what makes you think the new CTS V isn't a base CTS with a Vette engine as well?

    For one the new V has magnetic ride suspension, base CTS doesn't.

    Intercooler is incorporated into the upper intake manifold, which BTW I see as being one of the first mods with regards to feeding it colder fluid as opposed to the hot engine coolant that it will see from the factory....then the ZR1 blower pulley swap, then a better belt that won't slip, then headers, then a tune..........oh hell, here we go again....

    The ZR1 utilizes a different and larger series supercharger manufactured by Eaton which I believe is the 2300 series 4 lobe series.

    And although only factory rated at 630HP; there is much, much more left on the table and the factory forged internal and rotating assembly is handbuilt to handle what ever the aftermarket is prepared to throw at it.

    The CTSV utilizes the smaller 1900 series 4 lobe version from Eaton with a stock LS3 bottom end. It's no slouch by any means and a cam with ported heads should be able to add another 100 HP. Anything more than that would neccessitate forged internals.

    The difference between the two Eaton superchargers is not simply a difference in pully size to gain another 100 BHP.
