Myself and Jeff Myers (Jeff@LIngenfelter)are available for questions, tech support, or anything else you may need.

As a random though, have you guys ever considered doing work on the N*, or was it one of those motors that you decided just wasn't gonna happen?

We actually have had some discussions on the Northstar, but that's about as far as we have gone.
I did see a local resident driving around in his new XLR several times lately, I wonder if I can get him to let us play with it a little..........

I think the new STS would be a good platform for doing work on given the fact it's either AWD or RWD. I think it would be nice to have the larger Cadillacs playing around with the big boys, ala the BMW M5 and the Mercedes SL65 AMG. That being said, I still wouldn't mind a 427TT job done on a CTSv :)

It's good to have you guys here!

Jeff or Ed,
How long before you have production for the CAI that was on your car in the the Super Car Shootout?? Loved that oval filter.

thanks for the welcome guys!
Shane, we are actually testing a new prototype this weekend, if we are happy with the results, we should have production units within a couple weeks.
As soon as we have production units available, Jeff or I will post it in this forum.

Welcome to the forum!!!
You folks have a tremendous reputation in the aftermarket arena....it's good to have you here.
I'm not really into the newer stuff but appreciate what you and your collegues have been able to do with the cars I've read about in the past.
Ever think about doing something with a big block Caddy? ;)
Again....good to have you around.

We appreciate the kind words. We are still a full service machine shop, so we can definately handle that big Caddy motor for you. I usually handle a lot of the one off stuff, so let me know if you want to discuss some options.

Actually, my 500 is already finished.....just awaiting install (into an '84 Coupe Deville). It would be cool to see you folks work your magic on on an older Caddy though. A '69 or '70 Coupe Deville, injected and massaged 500, modern suspension and big brakes..... :thumbsup: It would actually make a pretty good promo piece for shows.....I like it. :D
Besides all that, we need a really big name behind the Cadillac big block to help get some performance parts developed. ;)
