so how does the engine differ from the one in the Z06? kinda looks like the air intake is skewed to the left and an engine casing replaces fuel rail covers.

p.s. more pics:

it's exactly the same. Prolly the limitation in engine bay size limits the car from showing its full potential

Bmw did the same with m3 and their m roadster. Same engine different output

It appears to me that they 'narrowed' the engine package a little by taking the coil packs off the rocker covers. I may be wrong. Any 'skewing' of the intake just looks like it comes from the camera angle.

I'd bet money that the 5HP reduction in the published numbers vs the Z06 is just a brochure derating to avoid ruffling the Vette guys' feathers. GM's done this any number of times over the past forty years - otherwise-identical engines get a higher number in the Vette brochures.

Yes they will, but they'll still find a way for the M3 to win, or they will do a comparo with the CTSV and the M5, and the M will win. Either way, I dont see Cadillac beating a BMW in C&D

seeing how motortrend gave m3 the winner's spot in their performance comparison over 01 z06(not the 405hp monster), eventhough z06 placed 1st in every single category but one where it tied for first, i don't see the ctsv winning any time soon
