I am thinking that a built 2.5 Turbo retaining its AWD system would probably be almost as fast, and it would handle a lot better.

That 2.5 fully dressed with turbos is around 400 lbs. A fully dressed 6.0 LS is around 460 lbs. So not much weight difference. Take the ls engine and do a cam swap add some 1.6 or 1.7 rockers with some 1 3/4 headers and the built 2.5 is no match.

Not to mention that the LS-A that was swapped in there is making more power off idle and ramps up as the revs increase where the Subi motor really wasn’t making power until 4K or higher.  I did find it interesting that the CTS-V-2 engine and trans were only .5” longer than the flat 4 and STI 6 speed were.
