Pfadt releases its highly anticipated ATS turbo kit!
The Pfadt Cadillac ATS program had one goal in mind: Create an All-American-built vehicle that could meet and exceed the energetic and highly refined performance requirements of today’s consumers. It was time to have a true competitor to pit against the leading rivals. While the ATS is a fantastic platform from the factory, for us at Pfadt Engineering it was just the starting point and the Texas Mile was just a test run. So while our integrated turbo induction solution has been completed for the ATS, trust me....it is only the beginning for us.
At Pfadt we're not just throwing parts at cars either. Our guys come from a reliability background and they are highly educated and talented engineers with a passion for power. They are classically trained engineers and they know exactly how to calculate a components behavior and ensure its reliability and performance are superior. The end result is this: A Cadillac flying down the Texas mile at 162.5 MPH (ranking next to a E63AMG!). The Pfadt design exceeds OEM standards, and I’m not just talking from a performance standpoint, which I don't need to mention since the numbers on the dyno will tell that story for me. I’m talking about our quality. I’m talking about true reliability. I’m talking about, for the first time in a long time an American designed, built, and tuned automobile leading the way. A car that will both scare the hell out of you and give you valued sense of security and reliability. An experience.

Pfadt Race Engineering has partnered with the leading tuner company for the LTG engine (among countless others): Trifecta Performance. Most of you are well aware of Tifecta's technical capabilities, but this partnership is going to deliver even more impressive results to our customers as we are bridging the best of both software and hardware worlds. Most importantly what this means for you is that you will get a reliable, safe, and powerful tune that has no limits to the potential features. We will expand on this in the coming month, but for now we will keep it simple and say that Trifecta is THE GO-TO company for development on FI applications and is a veery huge asset to the Cadillac community.
Reliable, seamless, dominating power is only one part of the equation though. Aerodynamics and handling have also been addressed by the engineers. The Pfadt ATS features innovations to the exterior styling as well; namely refined body panels and upgraded wheels. We look at optimizing as whole-car approach, not a slap together backyard job. The goal of our approach is to heighten the driver's experience though our commitment to excellence and personal touch. With our new venture into these power systems we are not just solving problems; we are igniting passion in the ATS owner!
