  2. Those with bigger displacement engines

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    What ya got and who did you get it from? I am pricing out the difference between having my bored and then getting a rotating assembly, or just buying a short block, fix mine and sell it. So... what ya all got?
  3. Why didn't Cadillac make a larger displacement Northstar?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    This may have been brought up somewhere in the forums but why is it that Cadillac never created a larger displacement version of the Northstar engine ie., 5.6L or greater after all these years?:confused: I would definitely liked to have seen it.
  4. Why does the Northstar in XLR V have a smaller displacement than the one in the DTS?

    Cadillac XLR-V Series Forum
    I have not been able to get any kind of an answer to this question: Why does the DTS have a Northstar with 4.6 and the XLR V Northstar is 4.4? Thanks, Ed
  5. Most stock longblock rwhp/rwtq, then H/C/I rwhp/rwtq?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Hey guys, I should be taking delivery of my '06 CTS-V in a few weeks or less. After perusing the vette/LS1tech boards for a while (this is my first GM LS motor, having delt with Ford 4v stuff in the past) I see that 400rw seems to be doable with the stock longblock + bolt ons/full exhaust/tune...
  6. Ladies and gentlemen, I believe I just found my dream car!

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    Triple black 1973 Lincoln Mark IV. Pretty cool stock, but this owner threw in a Ford "Toploader" 4 speed manual with floor shifter. It's got some other aftermarket parts too, but the 4 speed is so cool! I can't imagine rowing gears in something that size with that much power (the manuals I'm...

  8. 2.8L owners how do you like the engine?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I own the 2.8L engine but I sort of regret I didn't shell out the extra money for the 3.6L. Its not that its not a good engine but they dont make anything for the 2.8L. Does anyone know if anything is in development? But let me know what you think of the engine guys. Thanks.

  10. Possible upgrade from 03 to 06 =)

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I talked to my dealer last week, after I returned the BLS. He calculated a new lease contract if I would take the BLS 2.8. Turns out, since they have some advantage packages, that I would pay the same monthly if I would trade in my 03 CTS. He was very pleased to see my 03 CTS with the new...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Alright, I want to know (other than name and displacement obviously) what are the differences that make the 2.8L different from the 3.6L I am told the hfv6 is all the same block, but who else can chime in?

    500, 472, 425, 368
    Bro-Ham wants me to help him remove the variable displacement stuff on his '81 FWB Coupe. I have no idea how to do this, do I just pull a plug or something or is there another way, that gets rid of all that hardware?
  19. 2007 Cadillac Escalade with Variable Displacement

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I am new to the forum and I am looking to buy a 2007 Escalade this summer. However, on the forums I have read that the variable displacement Escalade will be out in the fall. Is this something worth waiting for? Will the improvement in mileage be worth it? Will this drive up the price?
