Im not sure what you mean by overlay. I did have to cut the center of the original grille though. Its an E&G Classic "16" Grille.

Looks awesome! I love the wheels.. Do you have a single subwoofer? Or are others hiding?

I have a single 18" Kicker Solo X Sub 5,000 RMS Watts. I'm only pushing 2,000 watts cause it gets a lot of use. 30 Farad Hybrid Stinger Cap. Door speakers are 6.5" JL Audio C5's pushing 900 watts. (2) 1,800 Kinetik batteries provide the power with stock alternator. The amps are also Kicker.

Cool.. All that and the SUV is fast. :) Looks like a lot of fun to drive.. Hopefully I'll see it at one of the meets this Summer.. If possible, come to the car show / Cadillac meet this weekend in Orlando.. Check the Florida forum if you can go...

I love the rims definitely, I'm looking at buying them, but keeping them the way they were, before you painted of course.

What's the suspension like on your ESV? is it lowered or raised anywhere? it looks so nice.

1SICKESV
05-06-08, 06:01 PM
The tuning is being done as we speak. It has all the computers hooked up to it. They are running it n fine tuning till they can get all the bugs out like sensors going off readjusting values n whatnot. I will pick it up Friday morning. I will post more pics n some video wen I get it back. The ES-V is an AWD, I have Eibach springs with the extended rods for the air suspension. Appreciate all the positive feedback. Will get it to the track when the motor has been broken in.

I like that grille alot, never seen it anywhere else, color matched rims are beautiful and that box is now way cleaner than on the pic I saw in your other thread before. Great work!
Feels quite fast from 0-60 huh?

1SICKESV
05-06-08, 07:52 PM
I haven't broken in the new engine setup. It was quite fast with just the supercharger headers n exhaust cut-out. Now its a beast. I'm expecting a mid 4 second 0-60 n a mid to high 12 second quarter mile. Cant wait to see those numbers on paper though.

your truck is lowered right? how much for the engine work?

1SICKESV
05-21-08, 12:27 PM
No vids yet but, soon. I'm on the search for an AWD dyno that will fit an ESV. The power is at around 700hp at least. Yes the truck is lowered with Eibach springs and the performance upgrades alone will set you back $30,000+ but having a kick ass Escalade is priceless when you see ppls faces. Just last night about 4 cars were racing nothing too crazy. The best one of the group was a 3 series BMW.We were all at a red light I got in the turning lane and when the light turned green i stomped on it n left em all lol

Dav1s
05-21-08, 11:37 PM
What kind of breaks did you put on it?

And where did you buy the Eibach springs from? And how far did you lower it in the front & in the back? I love the way yours sits. Oh yeah, how much did all the springs cost you?

1SICKESV
05-22-08, 11:35 AM
The brakes are Brembo's GT big brake kit. 15" rotors all around with 6 piston calipers in the front and 4 piston calipers in the rear. I purchased the springs from a local shop, Wheeltec. I think the drop is a 2/3". They sold me the springs cheaper because i've bought rims n tires and whatnot. I got them for $300.

05-23-08, 10:47 AM
you have a stock alternator charging all that? I ask because i'm am about to run about the same amount of watts if not a lil more (mtx te40001d, w/jl audio 450/4) so i was thinking of upgrading to a stinger alternator and big battery. Let me know how you have your chargin system

Speakers: (2) Pairs of JL Audio Evolution C5 650 6.5" 2-way speakers
(1) Kicker 18" Solo-X sub
Power: (2) Kinetik HC1800 Power Cells One to replace stock battery & to be placed in the back with the amps
(1) 300 amp circuit breaker
(1) battery isolator to charge the back battery while the car is running and when off to use only the back cell for power for the audio
(1) Stinger 30 Farad Hybrid Capacitor
and yes i kept my stock alternator charging all this with no problems

o ok, i like the look on the 6's, i just know that if its not lowered 26's look tiny, i wanna go with this asanti af 401 but they only come in 26 or 30, so you look at the difference...

First, the 30's are on a regular Escalade. The 26's are on the ESV and in person the 26's do not look tiny. Pictures are misleading.

i've seen several threads on here where the owner has put 26's on there and been upset that the 6's dont fill the wheel well.

and yes i kept my stock alternator charging all this with no problems



I currently have (1) mtx 4001d sub amp pushing about 3000 watts
(1) jl audio 300/4 for the highs

in additon to (3) tv's, I up graded the " big 3" with my stock alternator and battery. when i play my music the highs amp cuts out(lack of voltage), and the screen flinkers (lack of power/voltage). So i'm going to upgrade my alternator, and probably a kinetik under the hood.

1SICKESV
07-08-08, 01:44 AM
I currently have no flickering or dimming of lights at full blast and no amp cut off. I'm planning to run another mids n hi's amp and bass amp and another 18" Solox sub and additional mids and hi's speakers to double up my power. I will then add another battery and Cap and will upgrade my alternator.

07-10-08, 02:06 AM
hmm? thats odd well maybe your caps is stopping the dimming with the help of the batteries, IDK i think i'm going to just go ahead and get either a ohio generator or stinger alternator along with a kinetik 1800 and call it a day.
