It feels great. It is not rough or abrupt at all

List of NEW & OLD Mods!

Solid front engine mount - Adds a ton of throttle response on 00 to 05 FWD car. No bad side effects. Soon I will have this available.
Camshafts - I am working with a major manufacturer The spec have been loaded into the design software and they have the numbers all done. They have not ground one yet. I am going to deliver several OE cams so they can profile the lobes first. Soon I will have these.
Pistons - Ross makes pistons, OE replacements come in over sized for some years. I can get you a set
Connecting Rods - Eagle make a rod
Block Repairs - TimeSerts or Norms Inserts repair pulled head bolts
Head Gaskets - Cometic make a MLS gasket for some or all years.
Head Bolts - You can easily upgrade any 2000 to 2003 to 11mm X 2.0 threaded bolts over the 11mm X 1.5 by installing the 11mm X 2.0 TimeSerts and buying the 2004 head gasket kits. BTW LSX use the 11mm X 2.0 X 30mm inserts
Exhaust - Cat back systems work great!
CAI Systems - If you buy one it may need some attention before it fits, works, looks good, and you may still loose power.
Fuel injectors - This will help. I know from personal experience with customers cars.
Modified Fuel Pressure Regulator - This will work on 95 to 99 car, but you need a Stainless Steel fuel rail and you can't go too high on the pressure or it lock the injector up. I can get you one of these
Intake Manifolds - Can be cut open modified and reassembled. I have seen this done and I have NO idea if it does anything!
Throttle Bodies - You can install one, but I think it will be at a loss! you need to search out the people that did this and find out what happened
Transmissions - Shift Kits are available and have produced excellent results. I can get you this
Torque Converters - 3000 to 3500 stall speed works well. I know that the last VIN Y factory tested at 1800RPMs, but the VIN is higher and I thought it was 2600, But I bet that is wrong! I can get you one of these also.
Gear Ratio Changes - This is a big help for performance also GM offers 4 ratios. 2.84, 3.11, 3.48, 3.71. 3.11 and the 3.71 are Cadillac ratios.

PCM Tuning - Any of the Mods listed above may not work to the level you think they should. I can make adjustments to the program to get more out of any of the listed mods. On some mods you have to have a custom PCM tune. I can up the speed limiter to 155 MPH. I can make more power on the bottom end

Example Gear Ratios: If you lower the ratio the trans won't upshift and you will hit the rev limiter.
Example CAI or Throttle Body : your car flows air better, but the PCM is not setup for it. I can make it work.
Example Camshafts: You will loose vacuum and may have an unstable idle. I can setup the PCM to correct this.


I am sure I missed some things so please add:thumbsup:

Blowers Turbos Nitrous have all been used on Northstar's and Cadillac's!

This takes a lot of work of a 10 or 10.3 to 1 engine. How much boost can you run on a 10.3 to 1 engine?

Nitrous systems: I have a Modified LPE timing retard box that will help. It take 10 out! It clips in and you have no wire cutting.

I am getting ready to install Nitrous on a customers car:D

I have tuned LSX cars with 10.9 to 1 and ran 9psi intercooled and max timing was set at 12 deg on 93 oct. some with alky spray running 12psi
to stay on the safe side just run 6psi
