You own 2 2014 CTS-V's, it can't be too expensive for you can it?I love the STS-V body, but this is too far (I would guess it is a $100,000 project). I have started cool projects like this before, and while most worked, it took way too much money to get there!
Besides engine and trans, I would end up changing out the rear axle assembly (completely), as well as upgrading all 4 brakes. How you make the electronics work together, I cant even guess.
The V3 will have the same power (far better balance and handling, as well as a warranty; for less money.
It might be cheaper to graft STS-V body panels on to a CTS-V3 frame lol.
IMO, unless you have a great fabricator, a great mechanic, an electronic wizard, and $100K, I would not attempt

Haha I know, I was just messing with you, I'm on the same boat as well lolUnfortunately, possession is no indication of wealth
My priorities are just screwed up. Right now, I can't afford groceries for the kids, but I am driving what I like
No, honestly, one is a "company car" and the other is my wife's car. Both daily drivers; can't afford garage queens in my house
Listen, I readily admit, I don't know crap because I haven't researched it. However, my past experiences with similar projects tell me it is not near this easy, and worlds away from cheap. Motor mounts and driveshaft do not cover it. That drivetrain does NOT fit in the car! The tuner is a huge deal too. Trust me, it's not that simple count on $100K for a completed, reliable, good running car.Here's the deal boys, lsa from a v or zl1 on eBay with the bigger tranny for roughly 15k. Your 90% done already. Motor mounts and a driveshaft and your in business. Same computer is used and all sensors or standard gm equipment. Get the tune online or set one up yourself if you know how (I still don't) Around me, the absolute hardest thing to find is a freaking tuner!
I think under $20k is being too optimistic but I was thinking more under $40k.I would advise against the swap at any price. It is a cool idea that is not worth the money. I don't know what you are thinking you are getting for "under 20", but these types of projects turn into money pits very quickly. Please don't ask how I know.
