Default Supercharged 4.6 L Northstar coming soon !!

I just read a mag article that said GM will be supercharging the N* for next years Caddy.
Won't be long for the GXP.

They are also planning the LS2 500 hp beast as an option too in a couple of years.

Next year'* Caddy (STS) will be RWD... will the blower for the N* be interchangable for FWD and RWD applications?

The LS2 in an STS definately won't work in the Bonneville.

I'll believe it when I see it. It'll most likely be another V series car, ala CTS-V, if anything.

Scott and I were talking about this yesterday. VERY little room in his engine bay to get another belt drive system in it. If he can get it to drive off the main serpentine it may work but it will be extremely difficult to do it on a 2 belt system.

It also says that GM had to change the hood to fit the blower.
