    Whats going on guys? Picked up my 2005 CTS-V about 3 weeks ago, love it so far. Last few cars I have owned have all been turbo 4 bangers (traded my 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 in for this) so I am by no means new to the modding world or forums.
    My eventual plan for this is to make 400whp, or close to it on all motor, it is my DD so I'd prefer not to make it to crazy. I've been down that route before, and it made the car not fun anymore. I've done a couple small things so far, popped the MAF screen out, coolant reroute, REVSHIFT trans mount insert, having an exhaust shop fab up an exhaust next Monday, probably do the Lingenfelter cai soon as well. Then I'm done for "power" mods until I can beef up the differential a bit. Also really foaming at the mouth to lower this, not a fan of the stock 4x4 look haha.

    Also painted the front grill, no blinged out chrome for me.

    Hello and welcome!

    There is something very special about V-8 engines! There is an old saying that there is no replacement for displacement, and I think it is true!
