    First Impression & Dyno

    I picked up my 09 CTS-V from Sewell in Dallas on Friday. Easy deal good price and great people to deal with. We still have two on order with them with Recaros but the one I got had every option except Recaro's. Just wanted to get one ASAP.

    First impression is car is very nice. Similar in build quality and materials as the BMW M3 I traded in. Very nice car. Very fast but needs to be faster. I dynoed it today and we ripped apart this afternoon. Made 470 stock with about 450 miles or so. Ordered HRE Wheels today and will have engine work done, and lowered in about 10 days or so. Will post the update and pics when done.

    HRE wheels? How did you pull that off? I contacted them today and they said they don't have a fitment yet for the 09 V.

    Call HRE and speak to Matt. I faxed him the fitment sheet about 2pm today. I will have mine next week for Barrett Jackson but normally they are running about 2-3 weeks out.

    470 stock sounds high can you post your dyno?

    I agree. Was the car run on a Dynojet? I would like to see dyno graph if you can post it.

    I was really impressed by the tourqe more so than the horsepower. Ton's of torque down low.

    Re: First Impression & Dyno

    Why is 470 high? Assuming a 15% drivetrain loss which is about right for a T60, that's 552 crank hp, just as claimed. Now if it's an auto, that would mean it's under-rated.

    What are you planning on lowering it with?

    Edit: Oh I get it now, the usual hennessey sneaky advertising.

    Re: First Impression & Dyno

    Dynojets tend to read high. Any plans to dyno on a mustang dyno ? Or dyno a manual trans to see the drivetrain loss difference ?

    No plans on a mustang dyno. Not really going for a number, just a baseline really to see what I pick up on my mods. We have a 6 speed coming in but not until second week in Jan. We are getting ready to order a AWD Dyno Dynamics but wont be in until end of March or April.
