wow-we had a show at the Cadillac dealership for the pre race here in Charlotte NC today. so they introduce me to big wig GM guy and I also talked with 2 drivers, #8 Pilgrim and #1 Lawson!! what a blast, we compared cars!
any how, the GM guy said for a fact that the fall of 2008 the 2009 V vill be out and will definatley have over 500hp!! it will have STS rear end.

P.S. both drivers signed my sun visor----is that an instant $5000 added to value of car..:)

I would think you should get value add on the signed visors. When Carrol Shelby signed the dashboard of a GT500 recently, it jumped in value.

BTW - I watched your videos posted on the web, the oh @#$% its a cop, the car overview and when you picked it up after the upgrades.... Nice and you are a hoot....

So, I am getting ready to do a cam, headers and CAI. I have B&B on the car already with a resonator. Did you run resonator or x pipe with the headers. Also, if you will share, what cam did you install?

Thanks,

In a story about the G8 in GMHTP mag, they indicate that "it is unlikely that the G8 GXP will get the 500+ HP LSA (supercharged LS3?)". More food (or rumor) for thought I guess.

Btw, whatever engine ends up in there I bet it will "Do zero to sixty in zero seconds. You're there before you left" ;)

I confess to having mixed emotions about the likelihood of a 500+-hp V for 2009.

On the one hand, I'd love to see Cadillac continue to develop our wonderful vehicle, even if it causes me (owner of a 2005) extreme fits of jealousy.

On the other hand, if GM experiences a crisis of conscience and decides the path to a successful future is eco-green, then maybe there won't be another V, in which case we'd have instant collector'$$$ items in our garages.

I guess we win either way, either long-term or short-term...

Dean,

They want you to buy a new car....it wont have 500HP, and the fact that it has the shitty STS rear tells us they havent learned a thing....too bad.



F
A good friend of mine is working on troubleshooting procedures for the new rear and it may be "an STS rear end" but it certainly isn't the current STS rear end.

I think the guy you spoke with was VERY misinformed. He probably had no idea what the F he was talking about. An "STS rearend", what does that even refer to? An STS-V rearend? An STS V6 rearend? And "500HP"? Highly doubt it; I WISH, but doubt it. It appears that he is just rambling about heresay and is full of shit.

Would you like to know how I really feel about it?? :rant2:

Chris, I read the same thing, but I thought GMHTP said without question that the 2009 V will be the blown LSA.

I believe that article stated something like (paraphrasing): "The G8 GXP will not have the same engine as the 2009 CTS-V (which will have the LSA, a supercharged LS3) boasting over 500 horsepower.

It read somthing like that........I think.

does anyone really know a thing about the new V?

DOH, i forgot to add the rest of the quote. "..like the 2009 CTS-V". I'll edit my post to add that part.

-Chris

Hmm, it won;t let me edit that post. Odd.

I only know what I have seen with my own eyes at a certain prototype building for a certain auto manufacturer. ;)

Can't say specifics since they don't exactly list them for motor and which rear end, but there will be a few really big changes as far as the car itself.

Anyway, I might be in Charlotte in October for a panthers game. If thats the case I must meet the legend that is Dean400hp!! Ill keep ya posted on that one!

Why so much doubt that the new V will have 500+hp??? I am quite sure it will. They benchmarked the last gen M5 for our cars, only makes sense they benchmark and better the current M5 for the next one.

Carol Shelby is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay different than a driver... I say no added value and maybe even a decline...

F-that: I'll give you $200 cash to switch sunvisors with me right now.

Would the average dealer give more for it? No way- but for someone who knows it's cool as hell.
