just went outside to take a closer look at the engine bay in my '10 ctsv sedan, and clean things up a bit. i noticed on top of the intercooler (underneath the crossbrace) that my intercooler has 3 hex bolts exposed, and what looks like some adhesive on the intercooler (looks like a sticker has been removed). most other engine bay shots i see have cooling fins in this area without the hex bolts. what gives?? are there different intercoolers on these cars??

the area is circled in red. there are 3 small hex headed bolts exposed, and what looks like adhesive in the area--like a plate, or sticker was removed

thanks for the quick response. most other forums i'm on have a way to isolate 'advanced searches' to a specific section of the website--can't seem to figure out how to do that here.

Click on Advanced Search, then click the first tab where it says something about "Single Item search"? Down below, you can limit it to a certain message board then; CTS-V 2009+.

Agree...Google -> Advanced Search -> Put this particular forum's url in the address field, then type in your key words into the appropriate field = much better results

my 09 doesn't have all of that, it just has some "sticky residue" wonder what, It looked like someone put a sticker on it at one time.
