  • New ride!

    Picked up a 2009 CTS-V a couple weeks ago. i have wanted one of these since they came out and finally found one in my price range. I absolutely love this thing. It is so much fun to drive but it still rides and drives like a Cadillac should when just cruising. Has a Corsa axle back exhaust, cai, and tint so far (tint wasn't done in first pic). Should be somewhere around 575hp at the crank currently. Its under factory warranty through June 2015 so will be a while before any more mods come. Pulley and a tune will happen one day though. Its already stupid fast for a factory car but thats just too cheap of hp to pass up. Need to get some better pics of it but heres the ones i have now.

        Awesome. As far as mods go..... They don't void or shouldn't void your warranty. The was a court case (ill see if I can find it) that started the dealer had to prove the modification made by the owner caused the issue/problem..... Just food for thought.

        I love it though. Fast and comfortable.

          I had 08 Escalade and loved it but wish i would have bought the EXT. Very nice ride and you will appreciate the extra room in the back. I swore when i sold the escalade i was done with black but it just looks so good the first couple hours after you wash it lol. At least my short ass can reach the roof on this one so its easier for me to wash it.

          Good to know! Def post the link if you find it. I think they would have a valid argument if the engine blew and they had proof it was making more boost than stock though.

            After doing some digging i found out the car already had a tune. I had it dyno'd this weekend to see where it was at and to make sure the tune that was on the car was safe. All looks good. Best pull put down 504/536. Follow up pulls were 498 and 496 but air intake temps were getting on up there for those pulls. I'm happy with it. Not too many cars on the road making 500 at the wheels.

                The LSA is a pretty strong engine. I would do some basic mods without much worry. The one area of concen with them as well as ls9 and ls7 is excessive valve guide wear.

                If it were mine I would probably send the heads to WCCH to have the guides replaced(they use CHE bronze guides), do a cam, full exhaust(header back), pulley, and tune..
