    Yes. A live rear axle will get better 60 foot times. IRS is not made for launching... its for turning. Its trade off that some find more valuable than just going fast straight. But launch aside... once moving it will function munch better than the old style muscle cars.

    I have the 2.4 upper with 100mm idler pulley and solid isolator. Would this be a good combo? Only mods are k&n intake and corsa cat back exhaust. Thanks for any help

    Interesting first post.....I'll bite. 2.4" upper puts you at 15psi. You really need injectors at that point, ID850's or 1,000's. Also recommend getting an upgraded HX and pump. Obviously a custom tune as well. BTW, K&N doesn't make an intake for the V. You sure you have a CTS-V?

    ID850's - $800
    HX - $500
    Pump - $275
    Tune - $500

    Total $2,075

    +1. You need injectors with all that. Or you will see plenty of detonation.

    Ok, I knew it would be borderline but wasn't sure. Thinking about going with the E85 tune so I'd have to get injectors anyway.

    Sorry I doubted you. You've got some of the parts you need. Definitely will need injectors with pulley swap and E85 only makes you need them more. Still think you'll be battling some heat with 15psi so not an immediate need, but an upgraded HX and pump should be in your future plans.

    You should look at a CAI as well. You can get the Airaid from AutoZone for $250 when they're running their sales.

    I understand. I never do forums but I've found a lot of useful info on this one. My goals for now are around 600whp.

    $275. A little involved but not too bad:

    Part no. 251-253

    1) Go to ebates.com and create an account if you don't already have one. Link to Auto Zone for a 4% rebate
    2) Load part number 251-253 into your cart.
    3) $334.99 + $18.09 Taxes
    4) Use code PAYPAL20 to receive 20%OFF
    5) $286.08 is what you'll pay with free shipping
    6) 4% rebate nets you down to $274.64.

    The better deal was when the had the $25 gift card for every $100 spent. That, with rebate and using your Discover Card netted the CAI down to $246-ish.

    Yea, ordering a cai this week. Even tho I'll only hit the dragstrip here and there and occasional weekend cruising, would 15lbs be torturing the motor?

    I have the same goals. Did it once with my first sedan, but the tuner had a lean tune in the car and burned up #7 piston. Also cracked a cylinder. Good fun. Tuner blamed bad gas. I got to drive it all of 500 miles before it blew up. I miss that car, 2010 W/D, every option.....only had 14,000 miles when I picked it up.

    Without supporting mods (injectors, tune, HX, pump) you're risking hurting the motor. I also believe that headers help relieve heat and a good cam can do the same reducing dynamic compression.

    Hx will help from getting heat soaked and pulling timing. Headers help but more importantly if you don't do something like high flow cats or cat deletion down range you will melt the front cats at 15 psi. I did and... and I only had a 1.5 Metco at the time with 12-13psi.
