    Re: ***Frankie J Sexiest CTS-V1 ***

    Fix your hood, looks jacked. We know what you're trying to do, but I don't think it's a real concern. Nice drop, any issues with alignment or camber? After driving lowered cars my whole life I kinda like how the stock V sits now, it's nice to able to drive it lazy style.

    All it takes is one dyno vs. another to give somebody another 30hp.

Im running 245/45 fr and 275/40 rears on stock wheels. For the rear I guess I can go lower adding more washers to my M&M kit but for the front I really dont wanna cut a coil. Please let me know, love the stance on that V.....it looks amazing.
    My suspension im running is H&R springs with mm spacers
    My Tires setup is stock 245/45/18 all around.
    thank u also

    Its under $10 bucks
    You can get it at home depot or lowe's

    To install it you'll need to buy 3m double sided tape "wide"

    The hood is fine just added spacers witch makes a big difference on my temperature drop

    please stop being childish with ur rude comments
    1. You came on here to flaunt your car. Problems with pictures:
    a. Only the front half
    b. Too much instagram
    c. A normal $175 point and shoot camera takes better photos

    2. You don't preface your hood mod, leaving yourself open to feedback

    3. Home depot mods - belong with the sport compact crowd

    4. This is a Cadillac site - while it's great you have other vehicles, of what value is that sharing that in this forum?

    He's right. I'm can't speak my mind because personal attacks are against the forum regulations.

    Suffice it to say that you need to stop saying stuff like "I smoke M5s all day" and "I have a custom weapons grade tune performance street tune" when you basically have a plain-vanilla CTS-V and definitely can't corner with your front end like that. We all know that there's absolutely no way that you can make 383 RWHP with a LS6 CTS-V on Mustang dyno with a K&N CAI (the worst airbox you can buy), 1-3/4" Pacesetter headers (the worst headers you can buy), and a Corsa exhaust.

    This community, combined with the LS1Tech CTS-V community, is extremely mature--we have years of dyno tunes archived for comparison, and when something seems too good to be true, it usually is. Given your exhaust, you'd need a FAST 102 intake, a ported intake manifold and throttle body plus a great filter, or ported heads to get there on a 346 CID Gen III without a cam. You're either inflating your numbers or you've been lied to. Either way, you're coming across as someone that nobody cares to speak with.

    Re: ***Frankie J Sexiest CTS-V1 ***

    @jaygone7 - The racing vids showed a better launch at best in the V vs V vid... the dyno numbers are that... dyno numbers. They don't necessarily make people faster then others and they do vary shop to shop, depending on how people do SAE calcs, etc. However, all that said... racing videos are a no-no here. I like a good race as much as the next guy, but rules are rules here.

    You started a thread expecting positive feedback. Sometimes it doesn't work that way. Humility goes a long way.
