Hey Guys,

Just received the new '06 platinum/ebony cts-v. Can't wait to start the mods! Immediate plans call for an intercooled Procharger DSC1 kit built specifically for the CTS-V. The majority of the kit, plumbing, intercooler, brackets, etc will be made here in house at our shop.

Also, contrary to what many are saying about an automatic physically not fitting, i'm gonna take a second look. I havent done much more then crawl underneath the thing in the dealer parking lot, but i dont see why atleast a 4l60e wont fit underneath the tunnel. I'm a tad skeptical why such a trans would not fit, as i dont think the body of a "V" is much different then a standard CTS with an auto.. I have both a 60 and 80 case for mockup, so i'll let everyone know. If i am totally misunderstood, maybe someone can educate me. We've been doing alot of 4l60e/4l80e swaps on other vehicles and had nothing but stellar results. I think overall driveability and performance would be greatly improved.

I got a whole list of mods planned, but i wont bore you here.

So anyways, i just wanted to introduce myself, maybe get to know some local members and set the record straight on the stock GTO vs. CTS-V debate before she undergoes some enhancements:stirpot:

I'm located in Chatsworth, Ca and anyone is welcome to come by introduce yourself, check out the shop, see what we're all about.. see us at www.raceprovenmotors.com (http://www.raceprovenmotors.com) or call me at 818-201-5352. - Mike

I don't think you're boring anyone. In fact, I think you'll be blowing them away fairly soon. It sounds like you have a fair amount of performance car knowledge and aren't afraid to use it or share it. I think you'll find you fit in here just fine. As for me? I'm just the forum misfit. Discount 90% of what I say and you'll be fine. :thumbsup: Welcome!

Looking to buy a Cts-V by end of the year if my new job pays good, just gonna settle for a FW now.

Did you get a baseline RWHP reading yet?

Congrats on finally getting your car and welcome to the forum. :welcome:


Now as far as racing goes, I simply use my V to go and buy groceries and pick up new video releases at Wal-Mart.

havent made any baseline numbers yet. We put some HRE wheels on it, and i wasnt content on the offset and recommended tire profiles so we have been doing some tweaking to make it look right.

We removed some of the exhaust system for a forced induction mockup if you know what i mean :thumbsup:, so once i get some protype stuff finished i will get it put all back together and get a baseline number.

the typhoon is just sitting in the garage waiting for a sunny day, and another victim..hehe.

If you ever need experienced dyno tuning LS1/LS2/LS6/LS7 stuff, let us know if we can help. We have all the tuning software available. Hope this helps!
