thinkin about a V in a few months

What's up guys. I currently have an 04 Mach w/ about 325 rwhp. I'm graduating from Texas A&M in December and am thinking that a newer car will be in the works not too long after. The Mach is fun as hell to drive, but is not something I want as a daily-driver in the business world, being as loud as it is along w/ the sh!tty gas mileage. No way could I get something that isn't fast though, so I'm thinking about the CTS-V. What are some of the pros and cons of the car?
Will it take a supercharger? (just need to beef up the rear?)
What sort of things should I look for when the time comes? Any pros to the LS2 over the LS6?

I CURRENTLY OWN THE 05 CTS V LS6 AND JUST SOLD A 05 CORVETTE WHICH WAS THE FIRST YEAR FOR THE LS2! I WOULD DIFF. RECOMEND THE 06 CTS V OVER THE 05 FOR THAT REASON ALONE! DONT GET ME WRONG THE LS6 IS AWESOME,BUT SEEMS TO REALLY MAKE POWER ABOUT 5000 RPM+, THE LS2, ON THE OTHER HAND,MADE POWER ABOUT 3500-4000 RPM RANGE AND PULLED HARD ALL THE WAY TO REDLINE! IF YOU CAN, HOLD OUT TO SEE WHAT 08 BRINGS, IF WE COULD HAVE THE LS3 OR LS7,WOW!
