Default The CTS.......check this out....

I was just reading some guy who brought home his new 3.6l vvt-i engine in his 2004 caddy, and with an automatic ran 6.1-6.2s 0-60

Then I was ready a magazine the other day and it was saying that the manual version is capable of high 5'*......

Ok, doesnt anyone agree the new Buick LaCrosse is going to be one serious contender now possibly?

Yeah, but this opens up a whole new market for GM!!!!!!

Imagine, this smaller displacement engine, owns the */C series 3 3.8L.

Supercharger this engine, and with 6-7 psi of boost, were well over 300 hp, and with its VVT-i technology, you get an absolutely beautifully sounding car, with the finesse to still go on long drivers, at 25+ MPG.

Can you beat that?

That VVT 3.6l V6 is one hell of an engine. 240hp without boost. Does anyone know the torque for this engine, and @ what RPM?

See the third column of my pic above.

It gets wheel hop despite the IRS since the chassis was designed with lower torque in mind.
