We would like to introduce ourselves to the Cadillac Forum. We have been involved with the CTS-V (2) even prior to the release of the vehicle. As some of you have speculated, we were provided access to the car early on when LUND decided to return to Bonneville with the second generation CTS-V. We co-developed the products for that particular vehicle and only recently decided to bring the products to market.

We manufacturer, design and produce most of our products. Our designs are very high quality and we ensure proper testing for the ultimate in performance and durability. For example, our headers are fully TIG welded and utilize high-flow merge collectors with Stainless Steel flanges. Our cat-back exhaust can be ordered with our unique "D" style tips which provides both an aggressive sound and unique look. Our intake is the first to offer an injection molded tube and aluminum box, housing one of the largest filters on the market.

Look for new products in the next few weeks and feel free to contact Bob at sales@kpe-products.com or toll free 888-222-4291. We sincerely look forward to serving you and your V needs.

Welcome to the forum. Do you have any sound clips of the cat back exhaust? Also how much HP gain is there with the exhaust.
Thanks,
Leo

Welcome! BTW, love the cat-back exhaust tip shape! A Cat-Back and maybe the CAI might be my first two mods so I'll be watching this thread. Definitely want the Cat-back

How about the CAI? Is there a heat shield in that pic on the site? How easy is install? Does it require removal or modification of the brake duct?

And another +1 on CAI details. While we're at it, could someone explain the relative pros and cons between metal and plastic CAI ducting (besides aesthetics)?

We are waiting for production versions of the tube to complete our studio photography. Should be about a week. We will post installation instructions within the next few days.
