our tarns would have to be upgraded, they top out at around 400-500. the max torque on the tarns would have to be around 450.. internals would not handle the load. the wheels and teeth would snap all day long.
IF caddy was smart: turbo the v6 and mate carmaro or vette trans. 3inch full exhaust, with cts interitor and sts body size and that's a great car!!!!
How are they handling our ECU? Doesn't our CTS have multiple revisions of ECUs....one of the main reasons we haven't gotten any toys yet?
yea i heard our CTS's main set backs were the computer's lack of tuning ability, and second the drivetrain's inability to handle barely more than the 304 hp ours are putting out stock.
I would LOVE more power out of my 3.6! hell I drive it like it were a V all day long, it just does't perform as such...
Shit, I was thinking of getting a used V but if this comes out I would do this instead since I already have a few things done to my CTS and would hate to have to do it all over again.
Like the thought but yes, warranty and wear and tear would be biggest concerns. For me my CTS 3.6 Wagon is great but wouldn't mind the extra power this supercharger claims. I was going to get the V but realized they don't make it in AWD that I need for the winters here, so I basically setted for the 3.6 vs the LS6. I miss the power on my CTS as I also have an '04 M3 BMW and love the snappiness (let alone the handling) of the throttle on the Beemer. I chose the wagon because I love my dogs to travel with me and this was a perfect choice vehicle for the two of them. So who is willing to "try" this out for performance and warranty purposes? I read some reviews about "shadyness" in some aspects of incorporating this bolt on so I would urge the product maker (Iknow you must be reading this) to really thoroughly research the scenarios that all of us want for this addition is to be put on our vehicle. I work with insurance companies and the best caution is to prevent claims from ever happening. Obviously they (claims) will happen at times but to not objectively look into those possibilities and just "put the product out their, make the money, and then deal with the aftermath" is something I wouldn't want to see. I really like the idea of this product but hopefully the manufacturer and its affiliates would be moral enough to put an awesome product out there and stand behind it. ...."just saying"
Any update on the cts supercharger?
Anyone got a link for a purchase for these turbos?
Is this only available for DI engines. I have a 2008 that is not a DI but am super interested in performance upgrades.
still waiting for an answer 3.6 non- DI turbo available ?
IPF / KPE Will not have a Supercharger kit for the CTS anytime is the direct future. Why? The sheet metal for the shock towers is far tighter than on the Camaro, rendering the Camaro kit engineering useless to us (damnit), it Just Won't Fit! I spoke to them at length yesterday and they DO want to build the kit, but it will have to be engineered from scratch. As the vendor backed by some original engineers of the ECU tunes, this would be the most reliable way to go.
To the owners of those cars, Post Up! Show us the results, thanks!
This would be nice to see. is there any updates on whether or not the supercharger for the cts will be made?
