    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Since I've saved so much money on gas by not driving the V (insert hollow laugh) I went ahead and ordered a set of UUC 2pc front rotors and some matching 1pc for the rear with Hawk pads. I can just imagine what the stock rotors look like after sitting outside for 4mo. 14lbs less for the steering rack to move, if I ever get a replacement. Gawd I wish GM was on the hook for a rental car this whole time, then they'd be itching to get my car out.

    Hey Guys, I'm new to the crowd - just picked up my V a few weeks ago - 05 black. I don't have any warranty do you have any shops you recommend for work? Also who's had dyno tuning experience? and where did you go? is davenport the only ones to take a V to?

    Congratulations on the V. You will enjoy it in the summer time, winter time not so much. I have mine resting now.
    As far as someone working on these cars....How good are you at wrenching?
    Pretty sure most dealerships have seen VERY few of these cars. I did have good luck at GSL for a warranty clutch issue. Follow this forum for solutions to any problems. You'll probably have to tell the mechanic what is wrong and how to fix! As far as dyno tuning, anyone that is good with Corvettes should be able to do it. I'm keeping mine stockish so I don't have reliability issues.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Dropped off my V for the blown steering rack June 24th, picked it up tonight. WOW that was a handful driving home on Michelin Pilot Sport PS/2's in the weather, had to keep it rolling and leave a large gap in front so I wouldnt get stuck at a stand still. Made it home to get stuck in the driveway

    Saw another Black/Black (tint) V at Jack Carters waiting for service.... maybe they do get to see the V quite regularly
    Now to wait for a nice and dry day where I can sneak to the carwash and back to cover up the car, its currently defrosting in the underground parkade.

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Guys,
    Just wanted to introduce myself-i have an 05 black on black V. Bought it in the summer out of Calgary. I live in Airdrie. Car had a supercharger and exhaust cutouts on it. I dont think it had an easy life. The car lasted me about 4000KMs and 2 of the pistons broke so now I am doing a new motor and supercharger combination. should have the car together for the spring. Any recommendations for a dyno tuner in Calgary?
    Thanks
    Sheldon

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Either Davenport or RCTS. I have a feeling Reg @ RCTS has seen that car before, he spoke of a black V w/SC that he'd worked on when mine was in there for the headers/exhaust.

    Your story/experience is exactly why I think I'm staying with my HUGE pulley, at most go down to a 2.8 or 2.9, power is great, but so is a motor in one piece..... When I'm rolling in dough I'd rebuild the engine for higher hp/tq like I'm sure you have (over stock)

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Hi Everyone, just started driving my 2010 CTS-V, had it for 3 months, flatdecked the car with 9kms, heat cycled the drivtrain and engine on our dyno and then let her rip - 472HP at the wheels - Automatic.

    Mods starting soon, American Racing headers, LPE upper pulley kit, lower pulley kit and custom tuning, hoping for another 60-80 at the wheels.

    We have been playing around with these CTS-V's for a bit, but want to do our car to document the gains thru each step. Hopefully we will have a complete breakdown of HP gains thru each step.

    This car is an absolute blast to drive. Very solid and responsive.

    Steve

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    I'm bringing this thread back from the dead. Just wondering if many 09+ CTS-V owners have done much tuning to there V in the last year and a bit. Curious on what they did and where they
    got all there work done. And were the happy with the install and new found performance?
