    No way a supercharger alone is going to get you 150-200RWHP. (remember, your V6 is only popping out something like 315hp at the CRANK).

    Hell, my old G8 GT did 330RWHP with intake and canned tune, and that car was 361HP stock at the crank.

    Remember, the dyno tune alone adds about 30 horses

    Supposed to add.

    But you'll be starting at around, maybe, 220-250RWHP. A superchager alone will not add 150RWHP to your car.

    Ho-lee fook. For that price you should go twin-turbo.

    And on an already boosted stock V, it's 40...

    I think you're talking about this gaff. The event was tragic, the gaff.... Well, decide for yourself.

    I can't believe nobody figured it out before putting it on the air. That and how the woman reading from the teleprompter was oblivious to what she was reading!
    Probably going to hell for it but, I laughed my a$$ off at the sheer stupidity!

    That is the one, sir. Media puppets. Too stupid to see what they're reading. "We've just confirmed....". Whatever.

    Yeah... that's what I was going for. I work in the aircraft industry so that made the rounds. Absolutely ridiculous...tragic (the crash), but hilarious (the news anchor).

    You think a twin turbo kit would be better than supercharging?

    ^^^Yes, plus a 100-shot. That might put you around where a V2 starts off stock (until the bottle runs out). Race you from New York to California when you're done

    GM did...that's why they put a turbo on your motor in the CTS V Sport

    I think supercharging might be significantly less costly. Also it would keep the Cadillacs very linear acceleration and it would have that low end power we all love.
