Forum Members,



Let us take a moment to introduce ourselves. Some of you know us as Drumstix and PhxTriode. We are now KDInnovations.



Those that have followed know that we have always gone off the beaten path to find the right combinations that perform the best together. Through our own trials and failures we now can offer you those parts that work well together in a “coming soon” online store.



You can rest assured that if we offer it… It’s on our cars and just simply works... No guess work.



This is just a teaser.


New Era (custom colors)

Injector Dynamics

Custom Heat Exchangers with quiet centrifugal HiFlo pump

Custom blower porting

Custom Heads

Dampers and pulleys

Led lighting kits

HID fog light kits



Stay tuned for more innovative things in the pipeline.

Not at all. Again if it is on our cars and works we will make it available for you to make your own choice.

On another forum, with a different interest, I have a couple of friends that started a business with this same idea in mind...if they sell it, it works and they use it, or have used it, and feel comfortable with it. It has been working WELL for them, and I'm sure it will work well for you guys.

Good luck.

One of the first items we already have available is the New Era intake for $369 plus shipping. I am doing a few in black since so many of our cars are that color and it looks pretty sweet so if anyone wants one please let us know. I also have 3 in the normal black chrome powder coat color.

Other items are being queued up for delivery to us in the next week or two.

Thanks for all the well wishes guys.

any photos of the new era with custom colors?

Not yet. We will finish them up and take photos as guys request what they want. This has never been done before!!! LOL. We also have a pretty nifty idea of what else we may want to do to finish them. Conversation pending.

Once we do a few we'll post up pics.

Are you guys planning to do any tuning, whether through email or in person? Also, are you using HP, SCT, or another?

Not to start a riot lol. But we don't believe a mail order tune will maximize the potential of the products.

There will be options moving forward and we will announce them at a later date.

Well, I meant more like emailing base tune, then data logging is done and send you logs for tweaking.

I am just thinking of people who cannot get to you.

I understand what you are saying though.

In a perfect world it is possible. There are some options that may come available that would allow someone to use a specific handheld (not on the market yet) to do comprehensive logging and the tune could be loaded through that.

As of right now it would require them to purchase the tuning software, log thru the software and send the file. Because of each car is licensed separately it would require a license on each end to keep from a ton of copy and paste. This could prove to be a PITA for some. We have a few reputable (looking to grow the #'s) tuners that we are working with that can help in person.

Congrats guys! And thanks for developing for this community.

Tuning is my main concern, as there doesn't seem to be any well known local tuners who are knowledgable about LSx's, and most of these mods do need a tight tune for them to operate safely and at peak performance.

Good luck, and looking forward to your future products!

Seattle area - the only tuner I've heard about in the area is Trifecta Performance Custom Tuning, but have heard nothing about their experience level on LSx's. Their web site says they can tune CTS-V's, along with many other
vehicles ... hmmm??

PM for price, lol.

The stuff will all be on our site as we get stuff in and link it up.

For starters, Intro pricing on the New Era's are $369 in any of the hundreds of possible single color pieces.

Once the pulleys ship I will have a final figure and will be comfortable posting price. Balancers will sweeten the deal in a nice combo purchase, unless anyone has a ring sitting around and just need a balancer, lol.

Other prices coming as parts hit the pipeline.
