Very nice!

I like how they made the switch from buttons to actual flaps for the tapshift. One thing I did hear him mention was the old 312hp rating instead of the new 323hp rating, but just nitpicking I suppose. Beautiful car, can't wait till I can stop dreaming about getting one and actually get one. Nice find again.

That's because the "323" isn't confirmed or SAE certified...

I've seen 318hp on the window sticker of the '12 CTS and 308hp on the '12 SRX. On the Impala it will be 302hp for the '12 cop car.
We know the CTS has less room under the hood than the Camaro for the air intake, so it's pretty fair to say the Camaro will have 323hp(maybe more. LOL)

That is sharp car.....I will take mine in Summit White with the gray interior and black stripes......I love how he said "ventilated" disc brakes...and kept saying 312-hp.....obviously not a car guy.

Yea but I dont think he even mentioned the LFX or the flex fuel capabilities so im guessing he forgot the change in engine

Hm interesting, I had assumed it was confirmed for 2012. Thanks for that tid-bit. I'll be waiting then to see some dyno/certification numbers then when people start receiving them.

That's not the cover, thats the actual intake manifold (plenum)
It uses the same cover as the LLT V6, I removed the cover to take a picture of the intake. Sorry about the quality of that picture, I'll get a better one tomorrow.
