The V6 With a small turbo might be interesting.

Doesn't it though? According to STS, their kit for the V6 mustang, at 5 psi, produces 250 hp and 256 tq at the wheels, compared to 166 and 177 stock. Thats 50 percent improvement, and with a single turbo setup! And at 9 psi, it produces 313 hp and 326 tq at the wheels, or an 88 percent improvement. And seeing how I'm only looking for a 50 percent improvement (Intake and Exhaust put the v6 at 300 rwhp in the caddy, and I'm shooting for about 450 rwhp, which should be enough to reach my goal of a 13.00 second 1/4), this looks very promising indeed.

Well this shows a little of what the 3.6 is capable of.

It also shows the burning oil problem that is the one thing that concerns me about this engine. I was reading some caddy forums, and it seems to happen more often than not.

Yeah, that is something I have been reading quite a bit about too. Definitely a concern.

Well Just because that 3.6 burns a little oil.. doesnt mean they all do..

They had an Oil Consumtion problems with the LS2 also.. Mainly on the cars with manual transmissions.. Could be improper breakin procedure didnt seat the rings.. Or a problem with the aluminum on that paticular engine where the oil just.. beleive it or not... Seeped through.

Besides 6500 miles on the same oil..

I run synthetic and every 3 to 4 k miles I change the OIL.. Not because the oil is worn out. but how long can you really trust the Oil FILTER.?

I'd agree with you, but I've read A LOT of testimonials about it burning oil. Seems to be more common than not.

Something like that. It doesn't appear to be serious serious - like 1 qt every 3k miles I think is the average...

Even though I was leaning more towards the 6, might this be a reason to possibly go for the 8?

I did go to a couple of Cadillac forums and there are many people talking about the DI 3.6 burning oil.

I dunno... compared to a total oil capacity of 7.6 qts, it doesn't seem all THAT bad to me... I mean, obviously I'd rather it didn't do it, but I think its just something we'll have to live with. Of course, they could have corrected it by the time we buy our cars.

And if they haven't corrected it yet, I'm just going to have to start driving with a qt. of oil in the glove box. Nothing is going to stop me buying this car.

I think an RS V6 with a manual and limited slip should be very nice and quick. Like 0-60 in 5.5 seconds and the 1/4 in low 14's. Thats what my brother wants. He says the DI 3.6 in a great engine. I personally will get the LS3 manual SS. Burning oil during the first 10,000 miles shouldn't be a big deal. Heck, go read about BMW's. They burn alot of oil.

Well since the earliest I am likely to get my Camaro is November 2009, I have time to wait and see if the Camaro has the same oil burning problem or if it has been fixed.

I'll be getting this engine, to me its a prefect blend of power and mpg, and I like the V6 front end better, so the all-important coolness factor once again has an impact on my selection!
