    Well, We just got HAMMERED with a Blizzard so I doubt they are even in the office today. I got 16" in KC yesterday and last night. St. Louis got lots of freezing rain and snow.

    Yes. There's a lot involved in actually setting up the car/computers/engine components before being able to use all this extra power. Took my first ride today and it definitely spools faster and louder - I likey! I'll be dropping it off with Jesse on the 20th, so we should have some preliminary numbers by that Wednesday or Thursday.

    That old thing....It was a collaboration between 8thDayCreations and I. He already was selling the skull in a round circle, I just had him shape/size it for my crest on the front, back, and steering wheel but replaced the regular eyes he had with the "Jake" flags off the vette. Since XLRs have vette suspensions and CTS-V has the vette motor, he went ahead and setup templates for both vehicles.

    Now I need to figure out how to make reference to being Snake Bit? What do you guys think.
    This:


    Or maybe this:


    or better yet something like this (I like this concept best):
    Snake Bit Super Chilled Black Raven 2006 Cadillac XLR-V aka Elwood (Jake's brother)
    Verified 501rwhp and 486TQ at 6000RPM so far...final goal 575/550

    re: RATTLE Snake Bite the XLR-V

    I like them all butt go with the first one the cobra makes me think ford and a Cadillac is not a ford. The last one maby you can get a way with. But not the one with the cobra on it. Ps be careful driving that at all if you don't have it tuned that could turn out very bad I don't drive my car at all after any major mods like added boost/cam/heads/. I had my turbo camaro tuned for 9psi on a hot day two nights later It was colder and the car made more boost up to 12psi and that was all it took under 3/4 pull and $2,000 it was fixed. So be careful. But can't wate to see # up. Ryan

    Kyle- Wait til Jesse gets a hold of it and unlocks the new power you guys put in it......... The Factory Tune really restricts things like the blower actuator, Torque Management, Transmission settings, Dive By Wire Throttle response, Power Enrichment, blower ramp rates, ETC...............................

    re: RATTLE Snake Bite the XLR-V

    I'm curious how things come out when Jesse tunes it. He collaborated with Vengeance on my tune but it's always better to have him right there during the tuning process. I would be interested to see the differences between your final tune and my tune. I believe Jesse always tunes in EFI first then converts to SCT so I could email him my tune to compare with yours. I did put 60lb injectors in though so that will change a few things.

    I have been wanting to make it up to his shop but have never got around to it. Its a long drive and the winter weather doesn't do well for our cars. Keep us informed on the progress and good luck. Who knows maybe he can have a snakebite tune specifically for our cars if other members wanted to get the mod done.
