So there may be a performance aftermarket for the CTS even AFTER the V-Series is gone...
Well, its there now if you are willing to pay for it. There is an intake manifold and headers available for the 3.6L LY7, but I figured it to cost about $2000 to get the headers here and installed. Thats pretty expensive considering youre looking at 10 or 15 hp tops. A group buy to keep shipping down would go along way!

Re: Forced Induction for 3.6L
I worked extensively with an Australian company to get their 3.6l headers here. This was a couple of years ago and unfortunately, they thought the headers would not work because we have LHD and they have RHD. Basically it boiled down to me risking a couple grand to get them here and then they might not even work once arrived. Not a risk I was going to take. Same story on the CAPA stuff. You take a huge monetary risk to attempt something that might not work.
With the Camaro having the 3.6 I would bet a big aftermarket offering will start to emerge.
