Really sexy looking cars, amazing motors but ive got a few questions.

First off, why the $@^% are they 6 lug? Is there any kind of maybe corvette 5 lug conversion or something along those lines?

How much power do they make on a dyno stock.

Do they make gears for the rear end?

What other companys besides "ground control" makes a coilover kit for these cars?

I really appreciate your help
Thanks,Jason

1) six lugs adds to the exclusivity, no real reason/logic behind it, limits your aftermarket wheel options, but can go CCW or custom-made
2) 320-340, varies on type of dyno and conditions
3) no one I know has swapped gears, just happy that rear-end stays together, what are you looking for 3.90, 4.10, I am sure it can be done
4) GC built a kit for the V when no one else was willing, I think Mallett makes a kit but very pricey
Hope I helped...

... Do they make gears for the rear end? ...Outside of Doug Klein's I-believe-now-unavailable diff, this is the only example I know of:

The other onebadcad comments are right on ... as far as I know. ;)

IMHO, you are about to embark on the ownership trip of your lifetime: CTS-V ownership. :welcome:
