    Re: Disappointed w/D3

    i have removed and installed several TB on my car, its not bad at all. just take off the strut brace over the engine, remove the factory intake or aftermarket one. once those are removed MAKE SURE THE CAR IS COLD!!!!! just take a little mirror and hang it over the tubes against the firewall and put a little light in there. it only took me about 10min to remove and reinstall once i did this method. also, put an oring on the bolts to help hold them in place. thats how i have done it, and its been done 4times on my car to this point. ive gotten decent at it. lol

    Getting that cast Y out of there is not that hard. You can do it without removing the supercharger if you want to. I've done it that way on several cars. It takes a bit of contortion to wriggle that thing out of there but it's not bad.

    Just be careful when wiggling it out not to break the evap valve. If you do break it the cost is around 45-50 bucks. Don't ask how I know........

    Springs?!! HAHAHAHA! Unless you find them used somewhere, you will never get them! I called them over a YEAR ago to order springs and was told that they were on backorder. I sent emails, and called periodically, only to get the "backorder" routine. One day, I did get a call...they told me the springs were in, and would ship. I gave my payment info, and asked the person if he needed my VIN, as their ad says it is necessary for proper mounting. He went silent, and then said " No, there the same for all CTS-V vehicles". I reminded him that I have an STS-V, to which he said, "sorry, my mistake, we don't have those in yet, they're on backorder". I called last week and have been told by D3 that since the vehicle is discontinued they will no longer be carrying the springs...I wouldn't buy valve-stem caps from those guys...

    See...that's the part that sucks. If they quit making parts for the S that's fine, just don't tell a guy it's "in stock", take his money, and 6 weeks later still not have a clue as to when it will ship. Since they don't have anything to offer the S guys anymore, I'm hoping that the Cadillacs and coffee event will at least change my opinion on them in general.
