I had an enlightenment today. Do you think that if the xlr-v and sts-v got our motors (ls6/ls2) rather than the northstars....that they woulda sold waaaaaaaay more? And the sts-v and xlr-v would have many more enthusiasts/have more collectibility/ and exhibit a rare setup that many collectors seek? Why do you think GM decided not to have the entire V lineup be ls powered? they coulda supercharged them just as easily if that was a "must" in the books. Sorry if this is a rant/off topic....I was just doing some thinking.....I may of bought the xlr-v instead of the cts-v had they had the same engines/suspension.
