Will the new Corvette LS3 move to the V?

New numbers for the 2008 LS3 Corvette are 430 HP with a 436 HP option that uses a modified exhaust. Has anyone heard of this engine moving to the CTS-V?

The Sewell dealership in Grapevine TX says the new V will get the LS7 427ci in the current C6 Z06.

That would be excellent. I would also love to see it with a supercharged LS2/3. Either way, those are excellent motor options.

There's a rumor that GM will debut the new CTS-V at the 08 Detroit Auto Show and that the car will be in both a Coupe and 4-Door version with a S/C V8 estimated at 583 HP WOOT!!!!
