I'd be speculating but Magnacharger claims an addition of 120 rwhp and 120 ft lbs of torque. I'd luv to run it on an awd dyno if there was one within 1000 miles :) (j/k)

Very nice

I believe there are a few places in Calgary (davenport?) and I thought here in Edmonton there is a place too. Can't remember the name though.

So...., I guess with that supercharger you can go so fast that you can turn the gas prices back??????? Did you get the flux capacitor option?????? You people in Canada have everything, get ready we are all coming up there. ;)

Cool you picked up a CTSV? Coupe? That is the only REAL V. Where are you going to put all those emblems? You will need more doors, and you will need the supercharger just to move the truck with the weight of all those emblems. ;) :eek: I'll send you a pic of the ones we are having done, the letters match the Escalade letters, script and size, looks factory

"V" emblem replacing "EXT" on my sold 2008 and the Escalade is the "Iced" version although hard to see. After about a year some of the crystals started falling out but replacements are easy to get.

Extractor hood from Acs prior to Platinum Fascia install. Notice longer chrome strip on hood. BTW, I recommend some additional holes 1/8 in holes in the hood prior to painting for water draining, otherwise when you open the hood it will spill collected water on air box and second battery (if installed).

Well I think the "V" simply expresses the enthusiasm of the modded truck..in my case
-Magnacharger
-Hotchis sway bars
-Magauhy's lowering kit
- Baer Claw 15" big brakes
- Laser Interceptor laser jammers
- ACS composite hood

But then again I may simply debage completely....

Debadging looks sleek.....but when you are supercharged....you gotta tell the world!!! Simple V's all around and no escalade would look really nice! :)
