    NEW MEMBER-First time Caddy Owner, Long time GM Owner WHAT MODS!!!???

    2008 Cadillac Escalade.

    Which mods should be done?

    Best place to buy parts online?

    Already did the factory Bluetooth mod this morning?

    Best place to buy factory extended warranty, if there is such a thing?

    look forward to the enormous amount of information on this site!

    Welcome. I would put a Corsa exhaust to awaken the beast. It will sound unbelievable. CAI if you think it's worth it. I put a Vollant CAI and love it. Enjoy the new truck!

    Welcome!

    A lot of people like the 2nd battery option. I plan on adding line out converters so I can add an amp and subs. I did the PAC NU-GM29 so I can unlock the video on the factory nav. I also think we will be adding Hotchkis sway bars for better handling. I think the truck feels a little floaty but I am coming from an 02 lowered slade.

    Post some pics!

    Magnaflow muffler swap part number 12909, it's a 3 1/2 in factory exhaust, why spend a grand on a Corsa when it's only 3in? I love Corsa, sound is amazing but for a 100 bucks or so the magnaflow is the way to go, you can always cut rear resionator out if you want more noise. Airaid jr MIT intake, it's a straight tube that replaces factory tube, and a highflow air filter for stock air box, think it's like 150 bucks. Blackbear performance has proven dyno results that it produces more hp than expensive cai. And a tune from blackbear performance, I bought the Autocal setup from them and it's night and day difference!

    I went with the magnaflow muffler and I think it's a waste of money. No real gain or any throaty sound. I would save up and get a custom exhaust or a Corsa. MHO.
