The LS2 "felt" a little colder, slightly stand-offish...perhaps not as comfortable in a crowd as the LS6. It also may feel a little pimped-out as it is in many more vehicles than the LS6. I'm sure its nothing a little therapy can fix.
Most likely the 3.42 rear end gears vs. our 3.73's that you were feeling there.CarToys said:I drove a 6 speed GTO with the LS2. It seemed a bit 'soft' compared with the LS6.
I considered that, but it seemed like more of a difference than the gears would contribute. Especially since the LS2 is supposed to be have more torque...CVP33 said:Most likely the 3.42 rear end gears vs. our 3.73's that you were feeling there.
I hear what you are saying however I don't think the tranny differences are that significant and most people(on this forum) will have the '06 diff and wheel hop correction in a short time anyway as they roast their '04 and '05 diffs.thefly said:waiting on my salesman to call me. i am very curious to how the LS2 will perform i think it will be faster given the LS2 makes its power 400 rpm's lower then the LS6 for peak tq at least. as far as uniqueness, i think i want the improvements in the drivetrain, you may have a unique LS6 CTS-V vs an LS2 CTS-V but it won't matter for 20 years, and only gearheads will appreciate it. i look at as both cars are corvette powered, which is good enough for me. i think the fact that the V's are low production car speak more to there uniqueness.
