    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Goin' to da dyno... I cant wait to see what a crapload of exhaust money nets me....

    1. Bought car, came like it is now but stock exhaust. StealthV's original tune (circa '06)
    420hp, 361ftlbs

    2. StealthV gets me his new upgraded (leaned out) tune, everything else the same as above.
    460hp 403ftlbs

    3. Kooks 1 7/8" headers, Corsa catback, QTP Elec. cutouts, MTI Racing plug wires.

    Well not what I was expecting.... Lost hp/tq. Time for a real tune, a/f is crappy in the whole rpm range

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    You got some work done at RTC? How come you didn't get it tuned and dynoed there? Make more sense since he did the work and the work done should yield some nice gains.

    I had my tune/dyno few weeks ago. Probably not worth it with just exhausts. Gain 19 or so hp and tq. Got rid of the 2nd gear thing but should have at least headers and some other goodies.

    Regardless, loving the car. Only 329 or so hp/tq at the wheel. If it had a little more head room in the back (not that I sit in the back), 50 more hp, steering wheel controls, and AWD car would be a dream :-)

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    A dyno tune at RCTS may be in the future, they just didnt have time while it was there.... I had it dyno'd at Davenport for comparisson reasons, my other dyno's were done there. I hate to say it, and maybe someone can work tuning magic but almost seems like it would benefit greatly from a cam.... the cylinder pressure seems to be leaking out early as the free(er) flow is scavenging the combustion process before its even complete. With the previous amount of backpressure the process completed as the valve opened, not after.... Wonder what StealthV might have to say.... not that its his tune, but who knows?

    Anybody have a NAV firmware disc? I am gonna buy the new maps but looks like the most recent is 2007 for the CTSV. With the firmware I can buy other discs, like ones from Infiniti etc correct?

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    I have the firmware and with it installed I am currently using an Infinity 2007 disc. I can lend you the firmware disc, takes 5-10mins in your car then you dont need it again.... could also "find" another disc like I have for 2007, but am on my way out of town tomorrow morning. If you still want, shoot me a msg in a week or 2 to remind me before I get back.

    Live south of fish creek park? I saw a beautiful white cts4 couple days ago, I was of course in my beater car so it was of no concern to the cts driver.... he was quite spirited, I remember he was in the fast lane, gaining speed and someone would change lanes over infront of him.... causing the cts to slow down, then go around that person. Only to get the same treatment again. I had a chuckle, but it let me see more of the car (nb on macleod)

    Re: Calgary CTS-V's

    Hey BigBadBoss, I'm curious what kind of experiences you've had in the last couple snow/icy filled days in the V with winter tires.... I recall stability/traction control doing a good job on my car during an xmas break drive to the Dyno last year (just icy, no snow) But does the weight of the car and great brakes make for OMG stops?

    I have Dunlop Wintersport M3 on mine. TC kicked in a couple times. I don't drive too crazy and it seems to be alright. It's my first RWD since my old 87 Supra Turbo, and then Fiero before that. Have to remember the rear swings out when I step on it. Haven't had to stop too quickly yet.

    Streets are dry, most snow from the shady areas is gone.... provided next week's forcasted snow isnt much the streets might be cleaned in the next few weeks and I wont worry about taking the V out.
