    AWD CTS 3.6 build thread......the works!!

    Just getting strated and will post pics of all the steps, but this is getting the RX Super Charger, Ported heads, Our stall converter, and much more.

    Here is the car:




    Of course replacing the timing chains, etc. while the motor is torn down. Stay tuned and see each step to about the most deep build you could imagine, and a chance for more members to see first hand just what goes on here at RX.

    The heads:





    Supercharger:





    Expect 450-500 at the flywheel. Fuel delivery of the HPDI pump is the only thing holding it from more.



    More pics to come.

    Here is the motor finished and ready to stab back in:




    Supercharge should be on tomorrow and engine back in. Also doing our 3600 stall converter to give it some quicker spool time.

    Finishing up! Nice clean install. Had to redesign the entire bracket and belt system for the 2008 as the front cover is different so took a ton of extra time.

    Finished a few hours ago....and the owners are on their way back to PA as I type. Hope all goes well, we usually like a few days of testing and logging to tweak the tune but he had to get back for work.






    Thing is awesome launching w/AWD.
