I have decided to go with a head and cam mod for my V, especially after reading that FI will void waranty and that it may not be worth the trouble, in my case. I am looking for opinions from those that have done the mod and maybe get an idea of what combo will work well in my case. It is a daily driver, so I have specific concerns. I don't want a lopey or rough engine to gain 80 ponies, but would settle for 50 for an almost stock idle and run. Any thoughts appreciated TIA.

Just a thought....If you do anything to the motor and the motor or rear breaks, Cadillac may refuse your warranty. So I wouldn't eliminate a SC install just because you may think that is the only motor mod to kill your warranty.


You've read the posts in the last year or so....it has a lot to do with the dealer.

PS; I assume that your "FI" reference was meant to be "SC".

Sorry to tell you this but a H/C combo will do the same. If you want 50hp more, then just do a full bolton car. And alot less problems with warranty work. Once you open the engine or bolt on a s/c most dealers will not do the work under warranty. "You've read the posts in the last year or so....it has a lot to do with the dealer." this is also true. If you like give me a call or email me and we can talk about this more.

Thanks

H/C will wipe out the warranty, too, LOL
hard to hide the "AFR" on the heads

I was under the impression that since the Mallet car has H/C work done and is sold at Caddy dealerships, (Englewood) that maybe the same set up would be fine with the DSM. I am still interested in the H/C route though as it seems it would be a better fit for me.

I will shoot you an email Damian as i am not sure what you mean by a full bolt on car.

FI= forced induction = s/c

Dahhhh...I knew that (of course you did Geno).:helpless:

The reason Mallett can get away with it is they have a special relationship with GM (testing and secret work). Furthermore, I'm fairly sure that Mallett is providing the warranty and not Cadillac.

So... hypothetically speaking, of course... what about a 'stealth' head & cam package? Meaning, work the stock heads a little, and install a cam that's not too radical. Blitzer has a nice combo that feels real smooth. Seems to me that the only obvious giveaway would be the tune, which wouldn't necessarily be a problem for Maggie owners... "Hey, don't reflash, I've got a Manguson tune!"

Anybody ever get away with doing this? Hypothetically speaking, of course.
