  1. Maggie'd V at Pocono...VIDEO

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Yeah... I'm under 2000lbs....allows me to brake about 25yards later than most, the only way I was keeping up with the high-hp monsters of the day. To get on track, one only needs to go here - https://www.pdadrivingschool.com/index.php and do a little reading. The V, as Sefa has...
  2. 160 degree thermostat

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    C66 makes excellent points and has a little experience with the LS6...:thumbsup: The 160tstat doesn't really run as low as 160degrees...usually higher, some in 170s some low 180s. In very hot temps, it's the fans that keep the motor cooler. If the fans are reprogrammed, it'll help a great...
  3. One piece drive shaft?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    "The Clunk" comes from not just one thing, but many. It starts from the dual-mass flywheel and ends...well, it never ends. Let's just say that if you did everything needed to rid yourself of "The Clunk", you'd have a much lighter wallet. There are endless posts on the clunk, but not many...
  4. Advanced Tune Questions

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I found the post I wanted you to read. If you can understand the discussion, the terms, the process of tuning...then you can do it. I will say that it took me MANY hours...actually countless...to even get to the point of being able to discuss tuning...
  5. V stable-mate decision time

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    $1MM???....Shiiiiiyyyyyyittttt, man...I'd rather buy one of these for each day of the week... http://www.ultimasports.co.uk/gtr/ Depending on the engine build and tires used...I'd imagine there's not a street-legal car that could hang with the Ultima GTR. Something about that front canopy...
  6. V stable-mate decision time

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Man, I miss that...really do. Sounds like your getting accustomed to the dynamics. Amazing what a little throttle lift can do to a mid-engined car, huh. I remember doing that on a long-sweeping exit ramp with my prior manager in the car and then him begging me not to do it again. Not a...
  7. V stable-mate decision time

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    11.5 CR!!!! Wow, that's pretty high for a boosted motor. I didn't go digging much but I'm willing to bet boost is limited to around 4-5lbs...yes? Any more on that CR and there'll be some pretty high pressures seen. I'm not sure if the internals are forged/cast/hypercraptectic/ect...but if...
  8. V stable-mate decision time

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    WW, Great job, I am jealous....really, as I don't even fit in one (with a helmet on). Be careful, as those cars allow one to drive much more aggressively than one normaly would. The braking, turn-in, and corner speed of those machines are unbelieveable...you should have a blast. I wish...
  9. Apes Impressions of the V at VIR

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Good info....
  10. Blow rear $4100 non Warranty

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    A racetrack...not a strip, but an honest-to-goodness roadcourse that allows one to drive a performance vehicle (or any other type of vehicle if allowed) the way it was designed...ie, the V or in CVP's case the SRT. Virgina Int'l Raceway. "Straights are for fast cars, corners are for fast...
  11. Blow rear $4100 non Warranty

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Absolute BS that they charged you for the repair. If you are in NY and want to speak to the attorney who helped me Lemon Law my '05 V...65 days in dealer service in 12mos...pm me and I'll help you all I can. I have a folder 2" thick on back-up documentation that was used against GM. I still...
  12. Must Read!! Article from GM High-Tech Performance--CTS-V Differential!!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Here's some fun... GETRAG Corporate Group - 645 This is a little different than what I used for a Lemon Law fight with GM over my '05 CTS-V. I'll look for that info now... Found the posts and the site from Getrag has been changed....I wonder why???... "Well the Getrag is rated for 309...
  13. Time for New Tires...what do you'all recommend?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Not to start a pissing match, but the Falken 615s are the most popular tire used for the SCCA SoloII Nationals for "StreetTire" class. It is not just bacause they are cheaper (would you spend a week in Kansas and thousands of dollars to run a lower-performing tire to chance losing a National...
  14. Are all "V" drivers ignorant?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I really try not to, but it's really difficult... We ran Pocono with PDA, all 3 tracks...7 x 20min sessions. The Z sucked down a gallon of pure meth per session, I bet my valves are clean now..:thumbsup: I really regret not running the V on a roadcourse...there are times that I really miss...
  15. Are all "V" drivers ignorant?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Rick, Big debates over at the Vette Forum regarding pure meth or a mix. Any testing with pure meth vs 50water/50meth mix??? I'm thinking that with the maggie, since the spray is before the blower, the mix may help keep the intake charge cooler. Any testing with the brews? Also, you guys may...
  16. Are all "V" drivers ignorant?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Is it 1badcady's tune?...Rick did a great job with that one, super smooth and a real puller!!! He sold the V to his brother-in-law and has gotten a little "out-of-hand" with a certain 2002 996TT...it's currently Stage 4!!!! Our cars are just about dead even (although he does drop back when...
  17. Catch can is empty...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    IIRC, you do have those nipples...or at least you should. The TB nipple is a source of fresh-air for the crankcase, and won't show much oil...if ever. It's the other tube that needs the can. The one that pulls vacuum at idle, at cruise, and on throttle. With the massive vacuum that the...
  18. Catch can is empty...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    1badcady and I had a bit.ch of a time with his catch-cans. We "T"'d both valve covers to the intake nipple on the maggie and it just created too much vacuum...pulled ounces/day. The engine needs to have a fresh-air inlet for the PCV system and an exhaust (to the intake of the maggie). What...
  19. 20's

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Not alot of room under there, without going to fender flares. I'd stick with the 8.5" if you already have them, or you may need to "add" clearance. -ace
  20. What would you replace your V with IF YOU HAD TO?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I thought about the same car. Great looking and more than fast enough. With GM's "swap" offer, it was very tempting. But then I test drove the C5Z with a maggie. All in all- including an extra set of SSR wheels/Kumho slicks, alkyinjection, re-tune, ect....I'm coming in under $40K. I...
