We did add a rear anti wheel hop brace and a pinion support bracket for the differential, but so far the differential seems to be holding up (did I just jinx it?): for full list, see http://www.specialvehicles.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=55&Itemid=51

Nice pics
But with the gray sky, a black V would have been sharp:thumbsup:

Nothing a little Photoshop work couldn't fix...(the sky or the car color!).

I see the photographer had enuf sense to choose the fastest and best color for his shoot.

Nice pics. What does the badge say on the back where CTS normally is? I assume it says supercharged but that's just a guess.

Yes, it says "SUPERCHARGED", from GM stock badges SVC found for about $50; it's small, pretty discrete, and frankly hard to read on the road, which may be good or bad, depending on whether you want "them" to know; some here on the site have criticized it and want it off...there are closeups of it on the link in my signature.

I like the supercharged badge. If I supercharged mine, I'd probably just put an SC next to the V badge or something but I like your badge (maybe a little small but sometimes discreet is better)
