Depends on the type of dyno & whether it (and the operator) is accurate, conservative, or optimistic. Those factors can cause a car like yours to have about a 50 hp swing between two shops down the...

Personally, I'd rather they wait as long as possible to show the car. Its not as if showing it now is going to get it into showrooms any sooner. I find it infuriating when GM (or anyone else, but GM...

The CTS-V will be more similar in terms of size & performance, but it still isn't really a competitor in any way, shape, or form. One is a mass market sedan, the other is a luxury car. Only a handful...

Consistently? Absolutely no chance. But a hero run in perfect conditions? Its possible enough that I wouldn't just dismiss the idea outright.

The ratio of each individual gear is pretty meaningless on its own without taking into account the final drive ratio. For the C7 manual, this is 3.42:1 and on the CTS-Vsport its 2.85:1. That gives an...

I'd believe that. If it were a 'lets just throw this out there' concept, I'd figure it would be more radical & have a name like 'Desert Runner' rather than 'Colorado ZR2'

The flip side of that is weigh saving usually costs money. This isn't so much of a problem on a Cadillac, but it is an issue for a Camaro.
