Ok....I,m going to try again. I would like to set up a meet with some V owners in the Phoenix area. We could meet at the Pavilions or maybe Sat morning on our own. Last time I tried this I only got one other car to join in....Hopefully it will be better this time around. Let me know what you guys think.

I've been at the Pavs the past few weeks but due to my work schedule I can't meet up beforehand.

I'll try to hop in on this. Though I usually don't know how my Saturday's will pan out until I wake up that day, or sometimes the night before if I'm lucky. My calendar doesn't show anything significant for the next 2 Saturdays but that's always subject to change.

Gilbert CTS-V

Ok...the plan is to meet at the Pavs next week on the 16th. Hopefully this is enough notice. If everyone wants we can meet a little early and roll in together. Let me know...

As of now my schedule is open!

EdmundGTP

16th. I'll mark it down. Nothing showing on my calendar for that date aside from trying to hit the gym at some point. What time are we shooting for?

EnV
03-07-13, 04:32 PM
Dammit, I won't be able to do the 16th either. I will try and make it out the following weekend. My buddy's birthday is the 16th.

Gilbert CTS-V
03-16-13, 02:51 PM
Ok...Just curious who is planning on showing up at the PAVS tonight.....let me know

Shit! I completely forgot about the meet...

EnV

Gilbert CTS-V
03-21-13, 11:40 AM
I will see you guys out there...any chance of meeting up early. Let me know

Skidmarcx
03-21-13, 12:21 PM
I'll try to remember this time! Just depends on how busy I get with car work

Skidmarcx
03-23-13, 01:16 PM
What time you guys rollin out? Meeting early?

EnV
03-23-13, 08:38 PM
Ill be there around 8-830 in my filthy turd

Skidmarcx
03-23-13, 09:30 PM

Crap I just saw this! Did you all meet up last night?

Skidmarcx
03-25-13, 02:59 PM
Yea it was crowded... EnV and I were the only Vs there that I saw

It was good meeting you man! And yes it was pretty packed

03-27-13, 02:07 AM
I will not be ready until the 3rd week in April. cam, heads & tune. going to be so worth it.

EnV
03-27-13, 01:06 PM

Same! I'm doing cam, headers, tune, hopefully it'll wake this car up a bit haha. What shop are you going through? I still need to make my way down there and get that headlight piece from you too haha

verywhitedevil
03-27-13, 11:45 PM
no shop. my garage. whenever you are ready. c'mon

Gilbert CTS-V
03-28-13, 01:13 AM
well.....I have been trying to set up these meets for some time and of course the day you guys show up I get called into work. I'm sorry I missed meeting up with you two. I'm planning on this Sat if you guys can make it again...let me know. I'd like to check out the rides. Also..I have a brand new set of custom V floor mats for the front and back that are for sale. Ill bring them with me in case anyone needs a set. I paid 130 but will sell them for 50 bucks. hope you guys can make it.....

Skidmarcx
03-28-13, 01:19 AM
Right on man no need to be sorry... I may be able to cruise out again this Saturday it just depends on how busy I get with car work... If those floor mats are black I may be interested if you still have them... Mine are original and worn...

EnV
03-28-13, 01:45 AM
X2 on the color of the mats. I may be out this Saturday again

Gilbert CTS-V
03-28-13, 01:44 PM
Yep...they are black and brand new. I will get a kick out of watching you two duke it out over them (just kidding). Hopefully I will see you guys there on Sat. Im curious as to who you guys go to to do your mods...Im all about doing things myself and have been into drag racing most of my life but still need someone to tune this thing. I have the full Billy Boat headers, cats and exhaust. it sounds great and runs awesome but need a tune!!

Skidmarcx
03-28-13, 02:12 PM
I'm not going argue over floor mats lol... I do my own mods as well with exception to tuning

EnV
03-28-13, 02:17 PM
He can have the mats, I have the beige/tan interior, lol. Mike would probably beat my ass anyways :want: I go to CPR for parts/install and the only person I'd let tune my car is Nic D. I wish I could do all of the mod work on my own, it saves you an assload of money. I try to turn my own wrenches on small projects but I don't have the tools/knowledge for a lot of the bigger installs so I let the professionals handle it

Skidmarcx
03-28-13, 02:54 PM
Lol thanks pal... And I'm not that kind of guy unless provoked... Which I'm sure most people are that way anyways

EnV
03-28-13, 03:10 PM
Yeah, I'm a lover not a fighter... Lol

I bought my headers yesterday, hopefully another week or two and I can afford to pay an arm and a leg for the headers and cam to be installed

Skidmarcx
03-28-13, 03:21 PM
Sweet sounds like we'd be a good race then... In Mexico of course ;)

EnV
03-28-13, 03:49 PM
Hahaha in my dreams... I'd need another 50-75hp after that to be around your power level :(

Skidmarcx
03-28-13, 04:32 PM
I thought you had an LS2??

EnV
03-28-13, 04:34 PM
Negative ghost rider

Gilbert CTS-V
03-28-13, 05:06 PM
what kind of headers did you go with? It sounds like skidmarcx has a special something hiding under his hood....hmmm. Damn we need to meet up. This is driving me nuts

----------

I got it!!!! you guys can race for the floor mats. ha

EnV
03-28-13, 05:43 PM
He's got a Maggie!!!

I went with Kooks and a fairly large cam lol

Skidmarcx
03-28-13, 06:15 PM
You'll still put up a fight... Maggie no likey this heat, so my HP numbers are down... On the bright side my drag radials do like this heat! :)

Gilbert CTS-V
03-29-13, 11:38 PM
Do you guys think your going to make it tomorrow? If it looks good let me know......

Skidmarcx
03-29-13, 11:44 PM
Ill know more as the day progresses... For me it all depends on how much car work I have

Skidmarcx
03-30-13, 10:37 PM
I won't be out there tonight I'm still working in cars... Been a long day... Ill check with you guys about next weekend

EnV
04-02-13, 07:12 PM
Mike if you have trouble selling the car would you be interested in selling the Maggie?

Skidmarcx
04-02-13, 08:03 PM
I've thought about it... Since the majority of my problem is people can't get financed for the amount due to book value...

EnV
04-02-13, 08:20 PM
Definitely let me know ASAP. I might put a hold on my header/cam install depending on a price if you'd be willing to part with it.

Gilbert CTS-V
04-05-13, 02:40 PM
Are you guys planning on the Pavs tomorrow....let me know. Im planning on heading that way. Ill bring the mats in case you guys plan on showing up.

Skidmarcx
04-05-13, 06:33 PM
I doubt ill make it... Looks like this Saturday will be as busy as the last one

Skidmarcx
04-06-13, 07:35 PM
Turned out to be an early day... Ill be up to meet if you guys roll out... Let me know

You Phoenix guys should all come out to San Diego for the Palomar run next week. It's only like 5 hours right?

Skidmarcx
04-06-13, 08:19 PM
Yea 5 hour drive... Fun going through the mountains

ChurchSTSV
04-06-13, 11:01 PM
Can I come? Or is it only for cts guys. :(

Skidmarcx
04-06-13, 11:49 PM
Bring whatever you got brotha... I'm still waiting to see if the others are going

----------

Well I'm headed out there hope to see others

EnV
04-07-13, 01:37 PM

The Pavs is for everyone, man! You should come out next weekend, it's been a good turnout the past few weeks. Do you have the silver V that was at CPR a few weeks ago for brakes?

ChurchSTSV

04-08-13, 02:53 PM
FYI. We just had our meet in Indy and it turned out pretty good.
I learned you gotta put the when/where in the title and then keep the thread alive at the top of the list. It took a while, but once we got closer to the date it got a lot more attention.

ChurchSTSV
04-12-13, 06:33 PM
BACK TO THE FIRST PAGE!!

I got my dad interested in bringing his V out. When is this supposed to go down? And also, does thi sHAVE to be at the Pav's? Its always so packed especially because it is actually nice out for once.

ChurchSTSV
04-19-13, 12:27 AM
Bump to the top

EnV
04-20-13, 02:57 AM
Do your and your dad both have a V, or is that his silver one? I always meet up with people at the Pavs so I would rather just meet up there with everyone... Ill probably be there tomorrow for a little bit

ChurchSTSV
04-20-13, 01:24 PM
My dad has a red 05. I have the sts

04-20-13, 07:21 PM
Hey everyone. I moved here (Tempe) in '09 from California. Don't hang out on the forum much anymore, but if you have a meet again, drop me a line at johnmorris3@cox.net. Still drivin' my '04 V.

04-21-13, 12:03 AM
Im by the airport tonight and if I could Id love to meet some other V owners, but not going to happen this time, I get to fly back to MN in the morning to see more snow and cold, wish my V was down here to drive around in the warmer weather...Have fun guys, maybe next time I get down this way Ill be able to hit up the sat night meets again

EnV
06-17-13, 04:06 PM
Anyone know who has an all black V1 with aftermarket wheels and red calipers? It looked a LOT like my car I want to see it again haha

Skidmarcx
06-17-13, 09:13 PM
My buddy Josh has one like you described... Murdered out, red calipers, Team Dynamics wheels... I think he has it for sale

ChurchSTSV
06-18-13, 09:21 PM
Sounds purty

EdmundGTP
06-19-13, 07:03 PM
I like the idea of red, or even yellow calipers as opposed to the OEM silver. Just haven't had the motivation to get it done.

Skidmarcx
06-19-13, 08:43 PM
Can't go wrong with red... Especially on a black car

EnV
06-23-13, 01:17 PM

Yep that was probably him, car sounded sick. Mine will be for sale within the next year or so.

Anyone here looking for stock V wheels with tires or a Nikon DSLR camera?

ChurchSTSV
07-10-13, 06:37 PM
Anyone ever want to do an all Cadillac car show? I know the parking lot at the awatukee pavilions is huge.

ChurchSTSV
07-17-13, 12:28 AM
No one? Really?

Gilbert CTS-V
07-17-13, 12:56 AM

I'm down. I usually go to the Scottsdale pavs once a month or so too if anyone wants to meet up there

EdmundGTP
07-19-13, 06:42 PM
Supposed to rain tomorrow. Mine doesn't leave the garage unless the precipitation chance is 10% or less.

ChurchSTSV
07-19-13, 08:53 PM
The purpose of this is to get something going NOT at the pavs. The place is packed all the time and they have garbage for shade. I want to meet up with caddy owners. Not ten thousand corvettes and mustangs

Gilbert CTS-V
07-21-13, 01:34 PM
That sounds like a good time. Maybe a cruise to Payson or something like that. Lets go Church....put something together.

ChurchSTSV
07-22-13, 06:42 PM
The question is,how would I go about bringing in as many cars as possible if the forums are so split up?

Gilbert CTS-V
07-22-13, 07:06 PM
I dont have an answer to that one bud....I would try to set a date for two weeks out and post it on this and the V2 forum. Its ganna be hit and miss. Some guys have family and work issues like myself. But if I have enough notice I can get it done. Maybe early in the morning on a Sat or Sun so we dont have issues with the monsoon.

ChurchSTSV
07-25-13, 01:41 PM
So trying to get some updates. I am trying to see if the Chandler pavilions would like a fancy Cadillac show.

Gilbert CTS-V
07-30-13, 09:07 PM
Hey Church....You get anything figured out yet?

ChurchSTSV
07-30-13, 10:41 PM
No not yet. I can't get any call backs. I wonder if they would be that mad if we just showed up.

Gilbert CTS-V
07-31-13, 01:17 AM
Hell no....pick a day and lets make it a good showing

Gilbert CTS-V

According to their site it is the 3rd Saturday of the month... http://scottsdale.carsandcoffee.info/

Gilbert CTS-V
08-02-13, 03:32 PM
I saw that on the websight also, but I have friends that have been on the first Sat of the month and said it gets packed. Im thinking about checking it out just to get out for a drive. Should be nice early in the morning. Nate....its at Scottsdale and the 101 just south. It would be nice to see you again. Hows the car?

ChurchSTSV
08-02-13, 08:50 PM
Packed is what I would like to avoid. So you guys think morning or afternoon? We can pick a Saturday and show up at a nice location. I want to see caddys. Lots of them. I've had my fill of vettes

Hey Eddie... sorry I missed it today. Got my car back yesterday but stayed out playing poker last night and then overslept this morning. :bigroll: Anyway, the car's the best it's ever been. Just put in the LS7 clutch/FW and Revshift motor/trans mounts. Fixed about 90% of the stuff that was irritating me about this car, so I'm in love all over again. How've you been?

Anyway, I'd be down for the next Cars and Coffee, Pavs, or another car show. I will subscribe to this thread so I don't keep forgetting to check it.

08-04-13, 12:47 PM
Nate...where did you get your clutch work done...I have heard good things about that change. I look forward to checking it out. Hey Church...how about meeting up next Sat morning early before it gets to hot. We can meet at a starbucks or something and hang out for a while. Then maybe go for a drive.

ChurchSTSV
08-04-13, 02:30 PM
How early? I'll need to scrub down the car.

I had Top Gear Motorsports in Mesa do it. Highly recommend them; Sean is a good guy and does most of his work on late model V8 GMs.

I'm down for a Saturday morning meet. Which part of town? Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler?

ChurchSTSV
08-06-13, 02:04 AM
I'm down for Chandler. We can go to the AJs on ray and 52nd.

Gilbert CTS-V
08-09-13, 12:50 AM
Well....I don't care how many we get....It will be nice just to get out and meet up. Church...You pick the time and place and lets do it!!!! (unless it rains...haha)

I can't do it that early, but I was planning on going to Local Motors around noon to check out their open house if anyone wants to meet up there (it's across the 10 from firebird). A buddy of mine works there and told me there is free food and whatnot... info here (http://localmotors.com/microfactory/live/local-motors-open-house-tomorrow/)

Yeah it was fun. Throw a couple V2s in the mix and we'd have ourselves a pretty decent-sized meet. Sounds like the next one will be a drive of some sort, to Payson or Prescott...

Gilbert CTS-V
08-10-13, 11:22 PM
This morning was a great time. Enjoyed meeting everyone. Lets try to do this again in a couple of weeks and plan a road trip.....Should be a good time. By the way...a good friend of mine purchased a new V-coupe this morning while we were at the meeting and surprised me a few hours later. Man those things haul ass!!!! He will be at the next meeting for sure....see ya soon

Haven't been on here in a couple weeks. Whose black one is that with the F14's? Looks very similar to mine haha. I'll try to be on here more often to see about the next meet

----------

Verywhitedevil- I pmed you a while back on tech to pick up that washer piece because I lost your number, but in the meantime I lost the other one haha.

Ok....if you guys are ready for another meet lets get this ball rolling. Lets plan on Sat the 31'st around 8 or so. We can meet in the same place and chat for a bit and maybe take a cruise to Payson for an early lunch. Let me know what you guys think....

Nate37AZ

I think I'm in, but I need to replace my water pump, and depending on when the parts get in, that might be my only weekend to do it.

Damn you Nate!!!! Just kidding.... we can do it the following week if that works better. Let me know

It starts at 0700 at Scottsdale and the 101 just south in the Penske autoplex parking lot. They usually get out of there around 1030 or 1100.

V-twin
09-19-13, 10:43 PM
Yeah, I'll go. My V is nothing special, completely stock, but I'd like to meet some other Cadillac owners. I'll try to get my brother to come too. I'm in Chandler. Where do you want to meet?

well....I just got called in to work and will not be able to make it in the morning. It seems like every time I try to get a meet set up my work screws me over. Vtwin...if you go south from the 101 on scottsdale you cant miss it. Penske is on the west side of the road and you will see plenty of cars in the parking lot. They also have some food trucks there also....Im sorry I wont be able to make it. I was looking forward to it. maybe next time....

I just picked up a 06 cts-v and wouldnt mind rolling up somewhere. Would like to get some input on it as well as it was lowered in the front with eibachs and is giving me a almost grindy noise when rolling around in first. I was thinking it was the exhaust but who knows. anyway let me know.

Anyone up for a meet at the Pavilions next Saturday, 10/26?

I did finally install the PISNUOFF modified shifter. Wow, big difference. It is a nice tight shift pattern now, although I do still have a little trouble with 5th gear. I'll have to flush the clutch fluid and see if it helps. Let me know Eddie if you want my stock shifter to have it modified, so you don't have any down time on your car.

EnV - Sorry, no spare throttle body here.

Gilbert CTS-V
10-20-13, 01:08 PM
Hey Tim....cant wait to check it out. I will try to make it to Pavs next Saturday but wont know for a few days. If it doesnt work out maybe we can set up a meet Sat or Sun morning. What does everyone else think? Sorry EnV..I dont have a spare either. I heard you might be thinking about selling your wheels to get the matte finish instead of the piano finish that you have. Is that true? let me know

EnV
10-20-13, 11:03 PM
I would like the matte finish, but won't be selling the set to buy a matte set if I end up doing it. I'd just get these ones coated with a matte clear. I will probably be selling the wheels separately though once I decide to sell the car

Where is the car (crossroads)? I've done one cam install on an LS motor, but didn't bother with degreeing the cam or measuring pushrods (reused the stock ones), so not sure if I'd be much help.

verywhitedevil
10-31-13, 07:10 PM
I am in Tempe. Broadway and rural... I most definitely have to measure pushrods (big cam & new heads) and degreeing the cam will need to be done pretty sure. I will get it done one way or another, just would be nice for the support, LOL. those two things are the only things i am unsure of

I could come by after the show on Saturday morning (around 9 or 10) and help out for a little while. Maybe Eddie or any of the other guys will join us, too, if that works for you verywhitedevil.

Sweet. Looking forward to the show.

I'll bring my stock shifter. You can have it for $50 if you want one to send in to PISNUOFF to have modified. He said he'd give me $50 for it, so you could sell your stock one to him after you get the modified one put on, and avoid the core charge.

Yeah, the bigger cars and coffee show is the third weekend, but there is a smaller show at the Penske auto complex at Scottsdale rd and 101.

I'll be there in my Camaro. It's for old and new cars on Sunday. Get there early (before 8) if you do come, because it was completely full today. It's a pretty nice autocross course this time, but lots of really tight turns.

11-16-13, 11:04 AM
I'm working all weekend so it's a no-go for me.

I was pretty disappointed with the numbers, I was expecting around 415-420whp. I made 400/360 but it was pretty warm and humid that day. Mods are Fast 90, intake, 231/239 cam, and kooks headers.

Nic D tuned it. He tuned it before but I had a retune done for bigger injectors and the Fast. I love the choppiness of my cam. If you're ever out at the pavs let me know, I try and stop by at least for a little bit every weekend.

I'm in the Gilbert/Queen Creek area and just bought a 2005 V. Would love to meet up with some of you guys in the area to check out rides and what's been done, etc. Total noob to these cars but having fun learning.

It would be nice to get some guys together and learn some things about these vehicles.

I'm in.

Eddie, do you have a syringe to use for the clutch fluid? I don't have a remote bleeder, so I was thinking of trying the ranger method.

Damn that is a pretty extensive mod list. I miss my 231/239 cam after getting the V2, it's too quiet!!! I'd love to see that car as well, although I should have a long time ago because I've been meaning to pick something up from him for probably the past year lol

I'm in for a meet as well but most likely on a weekend morning that I won't be able to make. There is a V dyno day on Feb 22 that I am trying to get off of work for, we should all plan on that
