    D3 holding my 2006 XLR-V for a year and three monmths on a build!

    Anybody else experiencing problems with D3 Research and Design in Signal Hill, CA? They promised me a 850 HP+ Super Cadillac XLR-V and its one delay after another - patience wearing very thin!

    Knowing what I had to go thru to get 501RWHP, I hesitate to consider what they would have to do to get you 850. My tuner said 600 max on that engine safely, even with modified internals. Are they installing a different motor? LSX?

    Are they installing a new tranny and rear-end, too?

    Details, details, details!?!?!?!?!??!

    This is a story that needs to be told... When we invest in promises we would like them to be true...Believe nothing in what you hear and only half of what you read... Someone more important than me said this...I have learned to put everything promised in writing....good luck with this one..

    If you ever get your car back, what are you going to do with 850 hp?

    I think he is goingto drive it...Wouldn't u have wanted that much hp in your 37 coupe... It is all about performance....An XLR is a roadster that was underhorsepowered.....Nice to see someone doing it right..It is a beautiful car, but i would expect more hp from an American roadster....Nothing better than the feel of speed and torque.....except maybe one other thing

    I recall last spring seeing an XLR-V that was going to have a TVS2300 installed on a custom cast intake manifold. Is that one yours?

    Does this seam bogus to anyone else here that this guy claims that D3 has been holding his car for 3 months but he doesn't give us all the details about his car or why they are holding it ? I worked for several big tuner companies in the past and we only would hold cars when the customer paid half the cost upfront and then didn't pay the other half upon completion of their car . Since the poster of this thread only tells us half the story I have to assume that he owes D3 money and refused to pay them .

    if there is a legal fight then they are probably taking advice of counsel and not commenting in public about the case
