Lots of information (


"This supercharger is worthy of special note - engineers were happy to tell us that this blower operates with some 30% less drag than the Ford GT's supercharger, and the intercooler has 50 cooling fins per inch length of the pipeline."

Cadillac only plans to build between 1,000 and 2,000 STS-Vs per year.

The Northstar V8 SC, the STS-V's 4.4 liter supercharged V-8, is built by a single technician in about four hours. Around half of the engine parts are new on the Northstar V-8 SC.

Cadillac says the stainless-steel wire-mesh front grille increases airflow 34 percent to help cool the engine.

The ducts under the foglamps direct air to the front brakes for cooling.

The following is from the April, 2006 issue of Road & Track:

For the record, it takes one technician in the Wixom, Michigan, plant a little more than four hours to build each supercharged V-8, which is then hot-tested for four hours before going into a car.
