    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Took mine out for a road trip....to Houston Texas. Left Friday April 10 and returned Sunday April 19. 7724 KM total. Only saw two other V's, Platinum Westbound on I70 heading to Denver, I was East bound. Second on I45 just outside of Houston. Going same direction, I don't think he saw me.
    Drove thru major rain storms coming back and diverted away from major Denver snow storm. Had to do major wash yesterday when I came back.
    Oh I did see a V2 Black in Houston on West Grey Ave.

    I think it's time for a meet. CTS or Caddy in general.

    I backed up into someone last week and cracked my passenger tail light. Have packing tape on it now which is good temporarily. The dealer said the assembly is $7xx.xx Canadian and with labour it's going to be $850 ish. Will check the local wreckers and also Lindsay. I like to get it fixed instead of having tape on it but almost $900 Canadian is crazy.

    Ouch! I would think the tail lights would be the same as a regular CTS. You should have some luck with wreckers. I know there are none at Pick and Pull!

    I think someone in my neighbourhood has a Platinum V. Saw one parked in Douglas Square Sobeys when I stopped after work. I've seen it driving in Douglasdale and around 130th as well.

    I'd be down!

    ESV driver here (I know the thread is for only CTS-V d00dz).

    I bet money I've seen all of you driving around, hahha.

    Actually yesterday I saw a few CTS-Vs out and about on Macloud and 17th Ave...

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Anyone with a CTS-V that might be interested.... I currently have one spare 05 design rear axle (19k km on it), and will soon have a pair of 07 design axles with only about 3k km on them..... Should you be interested in spares for a good price gimmie a shout. And Albertan I'm getting my old diff opened up and cleaned out to see if the internals are at all damaged, you kinda seem to have lost interest in it.

    Off to install my DSS axles

    I kept waiting til it was going to be warmer. Then everyone seemed to be talking about the new axles, I see you bought them. So I think I'll put that project on hold. Also, I just bought a 95 318IS BMW to rebuild for one of my kids. So far I have learned that the BMW engine is WAY more complicated than a GM. Our V's have diff issues. Those cars issues: Oil pump sucking air, radiator blowing up, water pump failing, fan blades explode and I haven't even got the engine out yet. I'll see what happened to this engine soon.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    On days like the last few days how high did your oil and coolant temperature get up to? I noticed since my last oil change the oil temperature has been near 99c. It's less than the half way point but still higher than I have observed.

    Running laps at Race city last year it was 27c outside and we were doing 20min sessions. I got up as high as 114c oil temp, normal spirited driving I've seen 105c when its warm.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Went over to the Corvette show at Shaganappi today. I went to park in regular parking lot and one of the Corvette Unlimited members came over to say I couldn't park there. A guy with him knew what the car was but this guy DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE!!! So I guess not only is it invisible to cops, it's invisible to Corvette owners as well! Needless to say I didn't stay where I wasn't wanted!

    I saw a black CTS-V Monday June 1 on 10th Ave. Has "super charged" on the side. Looks good.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Just saw this post, I never have come into the Canadian forum before.

    I have Platnium 2004 CTS-V with a Spector Works cf vented hood and lip, Maggie, kooks, corsa, Rota Torques, DSS axles, etc. I live in Mackenzie Town and work in Douglas Glen, so it could have been my V the Albertan saw - I usually pick up dinner at Sobey on shop night for the race car.

    My V is at RCTS getting a dyno tune this week. Appaerently I have a couple issues before getting on the dyno. Lean in #4, malfunctioning intake temp sensor (reads -40C when it was +20C outside) and maybe an intake leak. That and Reg thinks the Magnunson tune that is in the car is pretty weak. If he figured out some of the issues today, he was going to run it on the Dyno early tomorrow morning.

    Good to meet you all.

    Hey GTZ,
    Do you still have the firmware DVD? If so, can I please borrow it. My dad has an 07 Denali, I would image that DVD would work for maps?
