2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods Discussion, CTS-CTS-V Hood in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; OK - I know I'm late to this thread - and I've tried to read through. I'm a little lost ...
Goodluck on the hood guys. I was a little bored so I did some photo editing of my own with a different hood. I was trying to give it a sort of raised look. I also edited in a bigger front lip and an additional projector for the headlight...... and added some bling to lawfive.
ah hell man, your killin my fingers lol. Ok, STS-V style cowl with intake on top that will feed into the airbox(either the Volant with the lid off or a K&N style, or modding stock box). Heat extractors(specter style) will be an option. They will be unpainted. We need 10 people commited and he needs 100-200 bucks down. The mony down will count toward the total price of 600 to 700. I feel like iam forgeting somthing...
oh oh, for a photo chop pic see post #103 and for LastSS's nice drawing of the whole idea with intake plumbing see post #62
Is this guy gonna cough up the $25.00 so Reed doesn't lock this link?
I am ready to pony up.
I want the vents (heat money/extractors)
Just tell me who to paypal.
Lets get this party started.
Well they are not a vendor yet as they make nothing for our car. Once developed, Im sure that they could do something. This originated from me and I have thrown a couple of bucks in the pot. Lets see how it goes.
Is Blitzer in on this??
Jimmys e mail FYI

Lastly, we will need about $30 on top to cover the price of EC to buy a factory hood.
Did you guys see the post in the CTS Forum under CTS Hood? Vendor Pietro of Cadillac Motor Sport will buy up to four hoods!!
"You guys are absolutely nuts if you don't step up to this deal at $700. I have the Speckter Werks hoods and they are gel-coated and are $1400 first class products.
The difference between a finished gel-coated product versus a fiberglass hood is HUGE!! Also built in heat extractors.....HUGE!
Fiberglass for the most part in kit form is junk and requires hours and hours and HOURS of body shop refinishing, coating, final fitting and block sanding before you even shoot your first coat of primer!
That $400 fiberglass hood might cost you and extra $1200 in "prep work" before it's even ready for primer and still fit like crap with line gaps! Been there, seen it, done it and have the tee shirt to prove it!
Your getting a gel-coated custom hood with "heat extractors" for $700?????.....your absolutely crazy if you don't jump on this deal!
Lastss: If no one steps up to the plate in the next 24 hours to finalize the last 4; I will buy the last 4 to get you to 10 as long as I have some imput on the heat extractor design. PLEASE Email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org as I have some designs that I want to talk with you about. You and I have talked before about "partnering" on a project and I think that time may have arrived. This is a "give-away" at $700!
Those $300 -$400 fiberglass hoods can wind up costing you $3000 buy the time you get to clear coat with all of the finish work involved! At $700 for a gel-coated hood with functional heat extractors....your crazy for that offer! I would have paid twice what I did for my Speckter V hood when I saw the workmanship.
That's the reason why Speckter is the official manufacturer of the V-Racer for Cadillac. It's all about the quality of the product gentleman......you get what you pay for and at $700; this is a virtual steal!!!"
