    First time Cadillac owner! 2008 cts 3.6di

    Hey new member to the forum, just looking for a few tips. My 2008 has every option made that year I think. The interior is amazing, im having issues finding certain performance parts. Has anyone tried Trifecta tuning? I was trying to find a hand held programmer but no luck. Tried to upload some pics from my iPhone but it says permission denied. Also looking for exhaust and intake suggestions! Thank for the help! Glad to be a caddy owner!

    Get a good catchcan on it ASAP and then for power the Iceolator for $150 gives 20 rwhp & 25+ RWTQ. CNC patteren ported TB takes care of the dead spot from 1200-2400 rpm, and lots more if you want. We single & twin turbo them, centrificaul super charge them, hot cams, etc.

    Hey thanks! I've read a lot of mixed reviews on the catchcan. What's the deal with that?

    ----------

    My plan is catchcan, Iceolator, intake, exhaust( hard to find a system which sound I like) and trifecta tune.

    I have that exact setup minus the intake and exhaust (because they're really not going to do much other than make it noisier). Much improved power and response over stock. Highly recommend Tracy (SC2150) and his products.

    Hey does anyone know if the catchcan and Iceolator void any warranty?

    Seconded. I almost bought a TBS myself, but i've learned its nothing but a waste of money. Let's say for hypothetical purposes you gain 2hp, still not worth $120 IMO
