Bumping this because I had a brief encounter with a CTS-V coupe this evening and got spanked! We were rolling from about 40 MPH when I saw him coming in my rear view mirror but once we gunned it I knew I didn't stand a chance.

That thing sounded so mean and the sound from the blower was very intoxicating. FWIW, I was on my PTF 2+ 93 octane map and went to fill up with some E85 immediately after

Hey guys, just want to throw my 2 cents in since I literally just picked up a V Thursday. This car is unbelievable in pretty much every way I think. From the handling to the comfort and options it comes with the car is an amazing bang for you buck. Minimal mod's makes this thing and absolute monster and in sport mode it is very very balanced. As far as the motor goes, wow just wow. The power band and way the car pulls is insane. At redline in each gear the car wants to just keep pulling and pulling and it is unlike any driving experience I've ever had. The tranny is a bit rough and stiff and not as smooth as I'd like it do be but I think it really is very well designed. Im no expert or am any sort of guru so obviously take my opinion with a grain of salt here. As for the comments about taking the gtr over this car, I would never. The GTR is not made nearly as well and im sorry but a high performance sports car IMHO should be manual all day, while I appreciate tiptronic, SMG, DCT and all that it just takes away from the driving experience so much. Ive had a big turbo evo and a fully bolted 335 and granted each car is in a tier above the next but yea I must say I am absolutely in love with the V and the way this thing sounds drives rides etc etc. Open up the exhaust a bit and my god will it sound beautiful. Also im going to be doing independent testing but lingenfelter is claiming 45WHP gains and 40WTQ gains based on the intake alone. They did dyno testing to back this as well on a 100% stock V no tune. I guess I will find out how true this claim is and if it is true an intake alone will put the car at 500+whp 500+wtq all the way to redline. Wahoo!!! I know Im rambling on so excuse me but I havent talked to many people about the car yet haha.
