I have noticed one interesting thing about this forum, and its that everyone has tricked out their v with some hot add ons... All I have done to my 04 black raven v is tint the windows, and had the corsa tossed on at the dealer when I bought it... So I consider my V stock. Who else has a stock V here, because I feel like i am in the minority?

I do love my v, just hate the rear diff...

Also is your V a daily driver, or a weekend toy? mine is a daily driver as long as there is no ice on the roads.. Since I got my V I never drive my Escalade anymore... I love the V... 40K miles in 2 years...

Mine is still stock at the moment, except for a K&N air filter and I added a full size spare tire. But soon it will have a Corsa exhaust and a performance tune (when parts arrive), Huper Optik 40 Tint today. LS1 Tune on the way, and a Valentine Radar Detector. More than likely "Clear Bra" coming and new tires in the near future as the rains come and the F1s wear down.

P.S. Oh yeah I had them add the dual pinstriping with the Cadi logo.




edit- tint done.

My V only has a Magnaflow and LPE intake.......and Vette fuel rail covers, but I don't really consider those mods. Still in the box I have a BMR strut brace and Hotchkis sway bars. They will go on in the spring along with the Ground Control coil-over kit and a Stealth tune. I'd still like to do a UUC shifter, but I haven't found a shop I trust enough to do the install. So, back to your initial question, yes, currently my V is close to stock, just like yours.

stock xecpt k/n filter and cool momo shift knob. hotchkis sways are on group order. i figure power and brakes are great, only mod needed is suspension and everyone seems to love hotchkis bars, they r only 300 bux and i can install easily. will save $ for tires which should last 6-8k miles. i love so3s but rnt cheap. i drive daily and drive it aggressively/ permagrin. oh yeah changed fog lites to piaa so they match the hids, i drive all the time w fogs for safety reasons . the more im seen the less chance i figure so idiot will crash/kill me/fam. the car is great as is....

I believe there are 3 stock V's at the local dealer, but those are the only stock V's I'm aware of :cookoo:

Sorry, but I have to agree, stock V's are a minority around here.

What's the hold up?

Stock...but not for long. Only have 800 miles. I really want to get the suspension upgraded first. May have to spend $4000.00 for a Penske/Mallett deal. No forced induction in the plans. Plenty of naturally aspirated grunt for me.

My V's completely stock. I've modified the Onstar antanae and got a set of winter rims and tires, that's it. It's a '04 Black on black

Mine is still stock, but only 720 miles on it. Going to put a sport spoiler on next week and then do exhaust. Cant decide between Corsa or Magnaflow. Any suggestions?

Mine is bone stock. 24,000. I do have a cags sitting in the original plastic on my dresser. A Kars stage 3 on the way (thanks Doug), set of stock rims (xtra for chroming) and hotchkis bars I need to order(gp) still. All you 700, 800 mile guys just wait. "You're Doomed," heavy has said. I bought these things with in a month of popping my cherry.

There is a guy that belongs to the Corvette Club I do that bought a new '04 CTS-v for his wife. The car is 100% stock. What a waste, and he agrees with me.

K & N replacement filter, B&B exhaust, Avon tires, Daily Driver and love it except for all the issues (mainly very whiny clunky rear). I'd day that is pretty stock.

What do you mean by "'stock?" In other words, what qualifies as "stock?" ... 100% virgin?:confused:

Stock unless you consider a baby seat and Continental tires mods. Nothing else at all...wait there are the V logo mats. Daily driver.

(slight shift) Which Continental tires did you stick on ?

Mine is still stock, except for cosmetic stuff like the ultimate pedals and the coil covers, ohh and the removal of the rear badges.

Of course the shifter and CAGS removal (programatically) are on the todo list. I'm just enjoying having a daily driver performance sedan without any real shortcomings :hide: (Did I say that outloud?... Ok there is the shifter, but I'm learing to work with it rather than against it), and primarily that I don't have to work on.

Why did you take off the rear badges?:hmm:

Well....mine is my daily driver (Black on Black) so no mods for me. Besides I'm too fearful of the dealer balking at any repairs on my extended warranty.
All I have done is window tint, 3M "clear bra", and a CAGS eliminator, that's all.
Although I would really like a Corsa exhaust - with a GM Part number the dealer would be hard pressed to deny a claim.
FWIW

I'd still like to do a UUC shifter, but I haven't found a shop I trust enough to do the install.

Bow,

The install is fairly easy if you have a lift. The transmission needs to be droped slightly for clearance and the only other hurtle is un-bolting a few exhaust bolts. Any shop with a half way decent wrench can handle it. I paid $200.00 for the install four weeks after I bought my car. The difference in shift quality is night and day.

PS the dealer quoted my $495 to do the install.:mad2: I paid a $50.00 premimum to a local shop because I wanted my car back after lunch the same day.

My 05 V is bone stock with 7200 miles, I put it up for the winter in October, but is my daily driver in the summer.
Has new rear dif, 2 new tires, new front rotors, waiting for 2 new rims. Have started a list for when it hits the road in the spring.

Bone stock here, also. If you can't get the stock power to the ground, why add more?
