In a few other threads it was mentioned that the mount point of the oil temp sensor on all LS6's is the same (i.e. CTS-V and Z06).
Well it aint...

Here is the Z06 oil temp sensor: gold fitting in 'oil cooler' port, above oil filter:

Here is the port removed, with sensor in place:

Here is the CTS-V 'oil cooler' port :hmm:

It appears the oil temp sensor is on the other side of the V's oil pan:

Any ideas why GM bothered to move it?

And I sure hope the delay in getting the temp fix out doesn't mean GM found a new problem that will requrie a hardware fix!! :crying2:

The exhuast *LOOKS* like it would be too close on the V (based SOLEY on the pics provided).

Thanks for posting this!
