    Cheap hp? 2012 cts coupe

    What cheap mods gave you the most hp?

    I know a dynotune is the best bang for your buck but I'm waiting until I've got some mods before I drop 500 for something that will need to be done again

    HP Tuners tune, but cheapest for best bang is do the CNC ported throttle body. Simple bolt on, no tune needed power and throttle response improvement. Have them in stock: www.RevXtreme.com 941-721-1826

    Have them for the LLT, LFX, and soon the LY7. CTS-V also.

    Another thing to do is remove the intake manifold and do a manual intake valve cleaning service and you wont believe the restored power and economy!!! RX catchcan is inexpensive and prevents the oil ingestion also that causes the intake valve coking issue.

    Love my CNC ported throttle body and v-max isolator! Get the ported TB to eliminate the dreaded dead spot and enjoy the improved throttle response of your 2012, especially off the line.
    Thanks RX!!

    Catch cans don't do much and my engines clean, I add moa to all my oil changes. I heard throttle bodies only make it more responsive and don't really add power
