The inability to get into reverse with the motor running is the standard test for a dragging clutch. On a CTS-V the mose likely culprit is an inadequate level of clutch fluid. For a more complete discussion of other causes see the recent thread listed below:

In your case, to state the obvious, it may relate to the recently installed shifter, but that would not be my first guess.
