    I guess I should also ask what other performance options there is for this car besides exhaust and intake?

    No, my point is in order to custom fab what you want out of this car, your better off trading it in on an STS-V, 469 HP and at least a small aftermarket.

    Exhaust
    Borla
    Corsa
    GM Performance

    Intake
    Volant CIA
    K&N Panel

    thats it.

    What are you trying to get out of it? These cars are quick but they arent muscle cars, I have a 99 SS Camaro for my speed fix.

    Re: 2005 STS any supercharger kits?

    Problem is i cant get anymore credit extended to me right now because i have too much out right now so i have to keep the car that i have! Which sucks or i would just buy the V. This is my first caddy i have ever owned and absolutely love the car but id like to get it to the mid 4's in a 0 to 60 ! Im def going to add Intake and Exhaust a supercharger at this point may just be too much ! Is there a chip or a hand held tuner out there for the car? Because if you add a intake and exhaust wont codes start popping up ? I do have my 83 trans am that im restoring and just dropped in a nice 350 with 400hp into it! I had my 08 CBR 1000RR for my speed fix until i let my roommate drive it ! RIP CBR! LOL

    Re: 2005 STS any supercharger kits?

    Mid 4s is CTS-V with 556 hp.
    Forget it, youll never touch that in an N/A STS N* and not without a full D3 or Mallett S/C N* STS-V (even that will be close)

    You have zero credit but you expect to get a 0-60 in 7 second car down into the 4s. Even if it was possible expect to spend Tens of Thousands to do it.

    Theres a saying, pick two of three, good fast and cheap.
    If you want your car to be good and fast it wont be cheap
    If you want your car to be cheap and fast it wont be good
    If you want your car to be cheap and good it wont be fast

    Enjoy it for what it is, a sporty sedan which can move 5 people from a-b in style and with some speed.

    Also ! Our cars have a compression ratio of over 9 to 1, this is NOT a good ratio to be supercharging.
    usually around the low 8's to 1 are desireable,so as to NOT tear up the engine. Good Luck.
    ALL of the above posts, should be considered, ALL GOOD advise.

    Re: 2005 STS any supercharger kits?

    Your best bet is to save your money and get a STS-V if you want the same body style. The interior is better with the V and you have all the suspension and drivetrain mods to support the extra power. The N* LC3 that is in the V is quite a bit different than the N* you have in your STS. The engine was heavily modified to live under the much higher stresses. Some of the mods are the lower compression pistons, oil cooling for the pistons, smaller bore so the cylinder walls are thicker and on and on.

    Although you don't like the answer, I think you have it. You are inviting trouble in terms of other parts failing by slapping a Supercharger on the N*. Be patient, save your money, improve your credit availablility, and then get a V if that's what you want.

    It's a bit better than a 7s car....motortrend tested a v8 STS to 5.4s which is pretty good, but I'm not sure how much improvement one could possibly make. Some said putting a flowmaster style exhaust could give a small hp increase.

    But seriously, the N* is plenty good enough for me... if I was a speed freak, I'd look for a Pontiac GTO/G8, Mustang, Camero, Corvette, or if I wanted a sedan then a CTS-V. Here's a good candidate: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/GT-6-...US_Cars_Trucks
