    Highly unlikely. The twin turbo option accompanied the third generation CTS, the front strut towers have a different design/configuration that appears to provide more clearance where it is lacking between the motor and frame rail area near the strut tower in the second generation CTS. A custom system is far more practical than an attempt at such a swap given the amount of retrofitting and computer interfacing that would be necessary.

    The XTS-V is AWD, but with a transverse engine (front wheel drive) engine layout. I'm not aware of the ATS-V being available with AWD as of yet.
