    It, meaning that's it for the deal? Or that's it for the CTS-V kits?
    Congrats!!!

    For the kit. Thanks for starting this post, it has answered a lot of questions that i had. I'm going to start doing some of the prep work before the kit arrives.

    If you're not driving it, you could yank the radiator, too.

    Hmmm... instead of a Maggie, why not just put some L92 heads and a 2009 CTS-V blower on it? Has anyone done this?

    We've talked about it but cost is unknown. Tony has the last, inexpensive way currently. Prices will change in the future.

    Re: Everything I ever wanted to know about a Maggie,,,and your gonna tell me!!!

    Damn, some good info on the install, my tech did mine so I can only offer these:

    1) Get a Goodyear Gatorback belt, much better than the one they ship with the kit
    2) Consider a custom tune, as the Superchips which came with my kit is far inferior
    3) Randy nailed it on painting the intercooler, only the outside frame though, as you don't want to prohibit air flow

    Some things for your next round of mods:

    1) wider rims/wider tires, you will shread 245s in about a month
    2) get a cam, you'll gain 30+?/RWHP
    3) consider the 2.6" pulley, look up threads regarding grinding the snout
    4) meth kit, will run you about $300-$400, may not get you any gains, but great for added protection
    5) 90mm adaptor and TB, about $400, I will let everyone know in the near future about my gains from this mod
    6) plastic surgery, you can't be wearing that ear-to-ear grin for the rest of your life

    Good luck, you will love this mod, and join in on all future SC vs. H/C fights.

    Second belt is a must
    I'm gonna stick with the stock Maggie tune for now. I'm pretty sure I'll get about 100hp, and that should be good for a while. I'll start looking into pullies and TB. I'll get the tune then.
    Going for a baseline dyno run Tuesday. i know I'd hate myself if I didn't know what i started with.
    And yes, I've been smiling since last week

    Maggie just arrived at the office! Everything looks to be here, I'm taking inventory right now.

    I'll get started tonight by doing the wiper mod.

    EDIT: Inventory check complete. Everything is here, except that they packed an air intake tube for the LS2 instead of LS6. I spoke to Mitch in customer service and they're shipping one out that will be here before Friday.

    Damn, now you got me worried. I can't work on it Thursday, so I planned on starting the tear-down Tuesday, to make up for lost time. But I was afraid something might be missing.
    Figure wed/fri/sat = 15 hours, and I can use some of Sunday morning if I need to. Guess I can do the stuff that's easy to put back. Yeah, 15-20 hours should be enough. I'm expecting under 15,,,,but prepairing for the worste.
    So what's the difference between the two intakes?

    Oh yeah, I'm HATING you right now!!!

    This one has that extra small tube coming out of it on the MAF side. When I noticed that I figured it was wrong. I don't know if the actual size of the tube is different - are the LS2 and LS6 TBs the same outer diameter? If they are then this would fit and I'd just have to plug that extra connection tube, but I'd rather just have the correct one.

    New Questions Time:

    The superchips tuner says that it's very important that your currently have the STOCK computer program in it before you use the handheld. I don't care about losing my old tune since I won't need it, but will this handheld not work unless I get the STOCK program flashed back by the dealer?
