Beautiful car, can't wait till I can stop dreaming about getting one and actually get one. Nice find again.
Thanks!

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.

Sorry, I haven't driven it yet.
The sound on start-up was very similar to the LLT.

Omg I want that plastic intake manifold! I bet thats where the extra HP bump comes from.

I expect they will run .1-.2 tenths faster or so.

more like where most of the weight came from. With the '10 & '11 the plain jane engine cover was optional. Now it looks mandatory.

Wow... that intake manifold look hideous. I really like having my cover off on the LLT as I think it looks better showing it's intake manifold. I really like how the exhaust manifold is just screaming for a turbo though...

seriously tho... a steady hand with a grinder will smooth out that fugly intake manifold... or... you could just keep the cover on...

So do I. I'd really like to see if it fits though first.

Holy cow...I wasn't expecting a plastic intake manifold...no wonder they were able to lose weight! Should also cost less....shouldn't it??

Yeah, many of us V6 owners like to run without the engine cover, but with this...there is no way I'd run without it. Ughh....

But...if it was an easy way for more power I'd do it! Just pretty up my engine cover!
