I moved your thread from the '09-15 CTS-V forum, since nobody in that forum has an LY7. With that said, the CTS-V owners are probably just as likely to know the answer to your question as the folks in this forum, so maybe moving it didn't matter.

While the XL7 does have an LY7, it's unlikely it's exactly the same as the CTS (or any of the other vehicles that used the LY7 - see the list here). You'd have to do your homework to figure out what is and isn't the same - sensors, cams, cam triggers, intake manifold, etc etc.
