You can tell by the wheel bolts, not a "V" :histeric:

But, a CTS-V with: L7, paddle shifting, HUD, and a "bullet proof" drivetrain, I am into.

I hope CADILLAC fired the interns that worked on the "V"s drivetrain.

The parts should have been rated for at least a 50% cushion.

The shifting should have been equal to or better then the C5.

Just a regular CTS owner here, but I was at the dealer yesterday looking into all our new goodies and he told me there is an ECU unit coming for you guy's that will allow you to get that 500 hp from that unit. Sketchy details at this point, but the parts guy has seen the info. If I catch anything more (part# & price) I'll let you know.

yes, it's called a StealthV tune, and $10,000 of bolt-ons

According to the article the V version is supposed to come out the year after the base version comes out so we are looking at 2009, if the article is correct. I would think by then Cadillac will be playing catch up. They'll probably put the rear dif that was supposed to go in our cars so it will probably have another POS for a rear end that can't handle the engine's power.

I was figuring on that date (09), and that is fine with me as that is when I have to start thinking about smog certification stuff.
I don't want to buy the first year either.

Although it turns out that that just because you buy a "next years model" doesn't necessarilly mean that you are getting a "next years model". :thepan:

It all depends on how serious Cadillac is about the "V" series and developing and supporting the market.
I would have thought I would have seen more ads for the CTS and the V now that Cadillac has a proven winner.
Then again, the V is a specialty car.

There were pic's floating around in some of the car mag's that showed a "muscle" V with really agressive fender flares earlier this year, in black. I would go for that at the very least for the next V. Maybe change the hood, wider tires, HUD and the rest of the must haves and maybe then we have the next V. Wish I had that photo.
By the time the next V comes out, will 500HP even be enough? The HP race is heating up with nearly every new model. Look at the CTS, it's falling off the chart but it's still a nice ride. 255hp looked good at the time but now it's near 300. I say 550 for the next V.

Maggie is not an exhaust device.
Magnaflow is.
Maggie is an intake device :thepan:
i worded that wrong, he got a Maggie, but wants to know what other good intake is, he ordered a Maggie but wants to know if Volant or K&N is a good intake or not. also he odered an exhaust but im not sure what he got. he just said he was taking it to a local shop and got a new exhaust. sorry.

Actually, some people on the SCCA forum say the race car V is not like the street version V at all. They concentrate on fender height. One Mustang driver espeically got very pissed off when I mentioned the race car is based on the street version. Of course they usually finished towards the end of the pack and a certain Mustang also had its firewall moved aft. They also couldn't comprehend that the SCCA mandated tires wouldn't fit in the stock Vs wheel wells.
