Okay fellas, you have the king of the hill cars, but do you have the cool motor builder tag on your engines that us STSv guys have? If so, where is it located and who was your builder?
First one to find and post a pic will get a prize from CadillacForums.com

Hmm, I didn't know that about the STS-V.

The only tag on the new CTS-V engine that I see is the GM Performance Division tag at the front.

^^^ Nope - I read somewhere that the blown v2 LSA's are built somewhere in Mexico. Not sure of the exact place in Mexico though ... ?

Built in MEXICO? Is that where Chevy engines (and apparently ours) are assembled nowadays? I had no idea, I assumed that they were built here. At least I helped keep the LGR assembly line workers on the job by purchasing a V......

Yeah, you can even buy an LSA marine crate motor.

I suppose a builder plate is nice, but think of it this way: 556HP isn't even special enough to justify it now.
