    2.8L vs 3.6L

    Is the CTS 3.6L engine a bored out 2.8L or are the two engines totally different? I heard from someone that the 2.8L is actually the engine used in a Saab.

    Dude your response doesnt make any sense.

    To clarify for op- yes they are pretty much the same engine. And yes, SAAB does have a turbo version of the 2.8

    Has anyone mated the Saab turbo to the CTS 2.8 engine?
