    Enhancing performance of my 2009 cts (3.6L direct inject)

    I am new to the cadillac world and just bought my first one last week. Love the speed and acceleration but wondering the best way to get more engine performance.

    Any ideas?

    ........... and be sure you do before and after dyno runs - with all the added noise you'll gain at least 457 hp at idle.

    I thought the CTS came with a true CAI from the factory.........or does a cutesy cone air filter make that much difference ?

    A GOOD mandrel bent cat-back exhaust might give you 8 - 15 hp up near WOT redline.
