I believe the ZR1 has the 2.3 and the Caddy has the 1.9.
Do you have headers?
No, the stock pipes are plenty loud...besides, it's a Cadillac.
What did you end up with?
It is a 2012 Coupe in Raven Black, with black wheels and yellow calipers.
If anyone is interested, I can PM some pics.
Posting them in the thread might pi$$ off the Powers-That-Be.
Mine is completely stock, except for a Eibach lowering kit and some cool floor mats with the Cadillac emblem nicely stitched in from Lloyd's Mats.
I know of one guy that swapped the 1.9 Eaton that is on my ZL1 for the larger 2.3 supercharger! I'll will begin with headers, pulleys and injectors and a tune.
You can certainly do that with the V.
However, I have learned my lesson regarding modifying new cars.
It just ends up as a money pit and doesn't really affect the re-sale value much.

That is what I was referring to.
And stock is all that matters in a test like Randy did.
And it should be.
I dont know but I can't imagine the Kentucky Bourbon swilling nutcases that design the thing are going to rest on their laurels
You're right, they're not the kind of guys to do that.
I was going for edgy and controversial there and heard using absolutes was the way to go.
Something I NEVER do.
The Viper sounds good but the Vette just hits a nerve that must go back the childhood or something. That's what a fast car should sound like.

I wouldn't do that.
Shows a lack of respect for the vehicle and not the love one should have for special cars.
