hahahaha. Your on your way to bein a pro-poho now.

Took out a STS-V and was very very very impressed! But man, that XLR-V is insane! Owner of the dealership that I got Tabs TBSS at let me drive one (convt). Those things are some monsters!

Whoops. My bad

I wonder why they didnt offer the STS and the XLR in MT and only AT. And the CTS only in MT and not AT

I love the Cts-V. I would love to get one. I've driven one a couple times but with the baby coming the TBSS seemed more like the right choice. I would like to run one against the SS.

actually word is that the CTS-V, smallest of them all might get the LS7. That will be one nasty ride when that happens. Might have to get the wife one....

Cost maybe? i know its like a $15,000 upgrade for an LS7. Too much competition with the other models maybe? I mean look at the new V8 Monte Carlos and Impalas... which to pick?

Ummm plural... Carlos not like **** carlos but Carlo but more than 1.
:rofl:

yea the new cts is supposed to produce over 600bhp..I havent heard anything on the sts getting an ls7 as well.
One reason the xlr wont get one is the price tag is already upwards of 100k...and whoever can afford a v w/ the ls7 will just buy a z06 or the new blue devil.

TBSS vs CTS-V I would like to see

I ran one last year when I only had an ECM tune and K&N drop in.. 60' were the same 2.0's I edged him out by a car-car & half 13.59 v 13.74 but his MPH was 105 v my 102.. it was about 65f outside and the CTS-V was an LS2, was brand new about 1,000mi on it the guy was pretty cocky back in the staging lanes nose up in the air when a few people (we were parked door to door) started looking under the hood of my truck and asking questions (basically their asses were in his and his boyfriend's face lol).. fuck'em... it felt good after I got the slip, at first i just figured he blew the launch but the 60' was dead on .. which also leads me to believe the LS6 equipped CTS-V is a little quicker..

The problem with the v's is the IRS is shit. Can't launch them, they have brutal wheel hop. And the diff is fragile as glass.

yep, they'll get annihilated on the street. track its close. from a roll the TB would get owned.

I fuckin hated the 04GTO because of that, I would probably still have mine in the garage if its rear suspension and diff didnt suck so bad.
