Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006 Discussion, Our SEMA 2004 Escalade V series... in Cadillac Escalade Forums; That is a very nice paint job. I wanted to do the same for my ext. How much did it ...
I love the idea. I wanted to do the top of my truck white diamond while the bottom half black diamond. I saw an ext on sound domain that had the same idea but I believe cadillac sold him the ext with the top silver sand and the bottom half bottom. You can find some escalades on the road that are two colors, I'm just wondering what cadillac dealerships did they buy them from and if those paint jobs costed more or not. It reminds me of 7 series bmw that my brother had, it had silver on top and a beautiful hue of purple on the bottom. Id loved to know if anyone on this forums has a two colored escalade and if they could please post pics aswell.
That was one of the ideas we had for this Escalade, to paint it White Diamond on top, but my painter decided to go with the Silver, I like it very much except for the fact that a lot of people here in SoCal are telling me that it's the perfect RAIDERS truck, their colors are silver and black...
The paint job really brings out the lines of the truck. Personally, I like the two toned effect. Also that grills looks like it belongs on a truck with 500 horses. I think a rear roll pan would definetly tighten things up in the back.
Do you know what that blower on the 6.0L AWD would be around?
edit: oops I meant performance wise
the 5.3 kit, which I have, puts out an extra 130 hp at the rear wheels, for the 6.0L it would add about the same. The reason for the same amount is that the 6.o motor has a little higher compression and it's tweaked from the factory a bit more so there is less room to add more horsepower to it.
The only thing that stops this kit from making more power is the 91 octane gas.
An Octane booster can be added and the computer reprogrammed, but when you can't get booster the engine will detonate till it melts... NOT GOOD.
The engine sensors that stop detonation are not broad enough to stop the detonation caused by the supercharger with cheap gas.
We are making two more changes, a lower temperature thermostat and a coolant bypass kit for the throttle body, this will hep the incoming fuel charge to stay cooler, something that cannot be done by MagnaCharger because of the California Air Resources Board Certification. Passes smog check...
There's no detonation issues with plain old 91 OCtane gas from the pump? On the 5.3L or the 6.0L
AS for CARB.......... God Bless Canada :lmao:
No detonation at all, down to 89 Octane, although the manufacturer doesn't recommend it.
Canada...eh! lucky you, you get all the nice chicks that are not mammary challenged, and fairly naive , unlike here in SoCal where they are definitely mammary challenged unless they are packing plastic and definitely not naive :rolleyes2 LOL But we have the weather...
