Never have. The GXP and the CTS-V share nothing in common. The GXP uses a 4.6 LD8 designed for a transverse mounting, The CTS-V uses depending on the model year a 5.7L or 6.1L engine designed for standard RWD mounting. The PCM and electronics are totally different. And the GXP uses the 4T80e tranny while the CTS-V uses the 6L90e or several different Tremec manual tranny'*
Being a Northstar doesnt mean interchangable.
