    Is this a realistic expectation?

    I purchased a 2010 CTS V sedan a few months ago. This is my first post, but I have been glued to this forum learning as much as I can. I am planning on the following mods 2.4 upper pulley, already have airaid CAI, solid isolator, 100mm idler pulley, ID850 injectors, stainless works headers and off road x pipe to factory mufflers, heat exchanger with upgraded pump, catch can, and tune.

    Is it realistic to expect 100 RWHP from these mods? Can anyone give me reasons why they regret modding the car? This is my daily driver and I do not plan on taking it to the track, I just enjoy modding cars and want to make this already awesome car faster.

    I think this would be around 100hp. Maybe more. I have similar mods and about to get a dyno tune on Thursday. Currently using a Diablo tune. The Diablo i have not decided was a good idea or not yet. The only issue would be the upper. Sometimes when you go that small on the upper you might see belt slip if its not done right. The only thing I regret about modding my car is that I haven't solved the lack of traction issue.

    Keeping the wheels on the ground is also a concern of mine. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the worst how bad is traction for those of you that added 100 hp on the stock wheels and tires? What have you guys done to help?

    I'm going to try a 12in wide rim. But I have a coupe.

    I was running +75hp and except for trying to get a perfect launch at the dragstrip, its not an issue. Still awesome drivability. I let my mother drive it...
