    2012 CTS 3.6 AWD Wagon performance upgrade

    Hello all,
    I am new to Cadillac, however have worked on numerous other makes, models, etc...
    I have recent purchased a 2012 CTS 3.6 AWD Premium Wagon and I am looking into doing some minor mods to
    it. I was looking into a cold air intake (thinking about AEM as I've had good results in the past), cat back exhaust (either Borla or Magnaflow as again I've had good result in the past) and maybe a programmer, throttle body or performance chip. Here is where my dilemma comes; I have not seen any parts available for my car. Is this due to the year? being a wagon? being AWD? or all of the above? Or is this the same as any other 2008 - 2013?
    sorry, just a bit confused and have been having difficulty finding parts. Also if there are any tips, tricks or performance mods (brands) that work particularly well for the CTS or 3.6 I will gladly take that advice. Thanks again, from a new member, and I am sure all of these questions are covered throughout this forum so I will continue doing my homework, Mike

    Hey Mike. The reason you can't find alot of parts for the 2012 is because there aren't a whole lot. There is a good thread on the parts available tho started by XE Ryder. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...-lfx-3-6l.html
    I don't think the fact you have a wagon makes much of a difference for engine upgrades. The main thing is the engine changed in 2012 so make sure you get something made for an LFX engine not an LLT.
