I went with #4. I expect the power to be above the CTS-V's 556, somewhere between 570 and 600. But I'm not willing to say definitively that it will be the LSA. It probably will be, but there is a reasonable chance that it won't.

although I feel the lsa will be under the hood, I think it's too early to claim it as fact.

If it is the LSA it will be more then 556 hp. mainly do to my belief of better intake and exhaust flow like on the v-6.
I can switch your vote for you, I assume you picked choice #3?

That's one area that Ford definitely has the upper hand if the Z/28 comes with an LSA.
If there is a hybrid between the LSA and and LS9 I'd put my money on it going the other way. LSA on the inside, with a 2.3L blower.

Isn't the CTS-V essentially on par with the GT500 (or at most, a little behind), with 556 hp and ~4400 lbs? As for road course performance, I have no doubts to the Z28's superiority. There is a lot of potential thats untaped in the SS, and I doubt that was accidental.
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
