    Dont mind me. We're just playing with STS-V's and 2011 Escalades.



    You know, having them valet parked out front of the hottest bars out here.





    And running a few more dynos last week before I take her to the track.

    Boy I would not let some one else drive my car if it made 425 hp that's a lot of hp for the average man. Good thing mine only makes 416.

    Re: STS-V Car of the Month: August

    Pretty soon there will be another STS-V here with an Upper Pulley upgrade.........

    Then hopefully next spring (or sooner depending on Mod fund) I am going to send it to Bob and have it ported up to (but not including) the Snake Bite. That way I can see the gains from the pulley and then any additional gains from port (Which I am sure will come). Main reason for the porting is better cooling from the port job, and or course the additional gains in power.

    Now, back to our regularly scheduled forum fight................

    PGA2B that sounds like that should work good I would also like to see the gains from porting only. 550 has taken this to the next level when I get home I will post picks of my car. He was runing a way with this post thinking he was the only one with a modded Sts-v. If you win and no one else was playing was It really a win?

    That is why I am going to do it that way and the fact I have to save up for the port job....... Back when I ported my M90 in my GTP I saw a nice gain too and that was before I put the Intercooler on it.

    Again, that's why I'll wait till a slow month when no one else posts a submission. The competition over in my area is pretty slim. The way I look at it, he wins this month, and he's done for at least a year.

    Hey Sal we need some rules in here, i.e., winner can't compete again for 12 months. Pictures cannot be repeated month after month and no duplicate attachments(save server space). Referencing older pictures is allowed. Should there be a limit on the number of pictures per submission? I remember when we were competing for the calendar, there were required shots and optional ones. Where's the poll for us to vote on the winner? Or is the voting moderators only? Should there be a "picture thread" and a separate discussion thread? Also, Please lock the thread at the end of the month.

    Re: STS-V Car of the Month: August

    Ya know I would expect this kind of childish behavior in a Honda forum.

    BTW, I found a Cadillac dealership performance shop that 'says' they have done 600hp STS-V's and that they would be happy to do all kinds of work for me including custom headers, head work, supercharger pulley and blower porting. I don't have the time or money to worry about it now but maybe in the future...who knows. Ironically, they also hate D3, and in fact gave me some history about them and their 'engineering'...ie outsourcing everything and copying other shop's work because they don't know a damn thing about cars.

    Gee, that looks pretty different than a custom airbrushed V Flag on a limited production performance sedan. What is that, black spray paint?
