2005 LS6 - 400 HP - Complete

2005 LS6 from a CTS-V
Miles: 24K
Price: $5500
Location: Detroit

This engine has the oil pan and accessories that are most desirable for swaps.

Includes: Engine harness, CTS-V power steering pump & bracket, CTS-V alternator and bracket and original starter. Also included are the OEM clutch and flywheel still bolted to the engine.










This engine was purchased from a local recycler, I have the VIN and have verified the mileage at the local Cadillac dealer. It's been stored inside my garage since I brought it home.

More data:

GM Powertrain Car Engines 2005

This engine has the good oiling system for track use (and Mobile 1 from the factory) and the #243 heads with sodium filled valves. It's DBW and 24x and can use the common #0411 (12200411) ECU as well as other aftermarket ECUs.

Willing to ship.

Which gearbox would you use with this in a mid mounted engine car. Which Audi box?

Re: 2005 LS6 - 400 HP - Complete

none basicly,

either fit a G50, ZFQ or Cima behind one of these. I believe any audi would be in pieces within 5K mls.

regards Thomas

Everyone has a different plan of attack...

My plan was to use an Audi 01E. I wanted to use a modern trans with good syncros that was serviceable at a sub $5K USD price.

The stock ratios for most TDi 01E's are either:

3.50
1.89
1.23
.87
.68
.56

or

3.50
1.89
1.23
.93
.73
.60


My plan was to re-gear using the wide ratio unit and replace 1st and 2nd as follows:

1st: 3.1
2nd: 1.92
3rd: 1.23
4th: 0.87
5th: 0.667
6th: 0.561

Using a 3.85 R&P.

With a Wavetrac LSD, this would have been roughly a $4K (USD) transaxle. I feel this would have held up well for the light weight project (~2200 lbs) I was planning.

Based on my research, I was happy to learn that these transaxles have service parts and can be rebuilt at a modest price. Unlike the Porsche units, they do not need to be flipped or otherwise modified and they also have better service parts selection than the Porsche Boxster equivalents. Scott DeWitt on this board was very helpful in my research.

As for the ZFQ, neither Chris Melia on this board nor Quaife responded to my inquiries.

Lastly, after speaking with delynn@griffingearboxes.com I was pleased to learn that he's moving forward with a product that I think will really fill a gap in this market.

Thx for the great info. As far as I know most mid engine kit cars here in SA uses Audi boxes too.
