    re: RATTLE Snake Bite the XLR-V

    Turbo Kyle... Wow I can't wait to here your results. I'm glad that everyone at the shop has dedicated some time to getting some real power from these engines. Being the first ever Snakebite on a cadillac LC3 engine I obviously have an interest to see what other mods are required to increase the power level. My snakebite blower achieves a consistent 16lbs of boost.

    Some of the areas that might pose the biggest restrictions are the TB, rear Y of air intake, intercooler, exhaust manifolds. If the XLR-V doesn't have an exhaust that would be one thing to look at as well. The XLR-V due to intake and exhaust restriction produces 26hp and 25tq less than it's counterpart the STS-V. What tuning software will you guys at the shop be using?

    Thanks for the info Coach. Here is the before after numbers with the Intake. We got about a pound of extra boost as you can see its a little leaner with the CAI. This put the AFRs in a better place.

    Turbokyle... Please let us know if you end up doing port matching. This was something I had wanted to do but unfortunately my heads were not shipped to your shop for you guys to work on. If you end up doing it please tell us the gains anticipated since its a PITA to get the blower off the car. Thanks

    Great pics by the way.

    re: RATTLE Snake Bite the XLR-V

    The snow and the cold have slowed our progress. For example, this morning we had freezing fog causing 167 accidents in the St Louis area during rush hour; three snow days for the schools in the last two weeks; and as soon as one snow fall starts to melt, it snows again. I'm not concerned. The guys at Stiegemeier should have it back together by the end of the week. My deadline was the second week of Feb, so we're still on target.

    Hell, I'm working on exterior and interior mods and getting nowhere fast cause the weather is so depressing.

    Anybody know where I can get a set of aftermarket paddle shifters?
