: Absurdly small V8 air filter element.

Just checked my air filter on the V8, noticed it is very small for the V8 inside!

Not even a full 6 inches high X 9.24 wide WITH a wide plastic rib down the middle that effectively reduces area even further. This thing will clog up every 10-15k.

No K&N available.

Who are these brilliant Cadillac engineers?? Perhaps some of the poor 0-60 times we are complaining about can be accounted for by this...

But then again, probably not, as the reprogramming / detuning fiasco that appears to be plaguing us just fits right in with this brilliant design feature…

That's interesting. What's the factory service interval? I'm to lazy to look it up.

The V6 version appears even smaller. You might want to check out the Volant intake.
