  1. Pics, engine detail

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    Engines like this with exposed components are harder to detail, unlike the newer ones with plastic covers on them. In this case I used simple green, engine degreaser and my Ultimate dressing to seal the rubber and plastic after I cleaned it. always keep the engine running when cleaning with...
  2. cold-air induction: real or hype?

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    i'm intrigued by these cold air induction systems, but not sold on them. do they really deliver instant performance gains? is it noticeable? are we talking 1-2hp, or 5-10hp? are they as effective @ filtration as the OEM air filter/induction system @ keeping dirt/grime out of the engine?
  3. CTS Addict

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I just wanted to share with you guys I am addicted to modding my CTS looks and performance I am very picky on what I do to it with looks though. Right now I am pretty sure I have my 3.6l CTS the fastest it can be without doing anything major to it like adding a super charger.
  4. CTS-V Exhaust on 3.6L CTS

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Hey V Forum, It's been about 3 months since I had my V-Exhaust installed and I wanted to show you guys a video and some pics of your exhausts being put to work it really does sound great a 5x improvment over the "whisper quiet double pass muffler" exhaust on the 3.6. The deeper throatier sound...
  5. Remeber where those vac lines go.....

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    For about a year my Automatic Relese for the parking brake has been broke. Ive also had a intermittent A/C issue where air would divert from the vents to the defrost position. The A/C issue really wasnt a problem till i had an induction service done. It go so bad that i basicly no longer Had...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    This CAI is awesome. It is a prototype for CTS-V for maggies. Even under the tubes have been engineered to fit over the pulley with that inverted hump in the middle of tube. I also went today and found me an awesome LapTop with swing screen display so i can see my tune and map displays Live...
  7. In reguard to my deville's rough idleing,could it just need an induction service?

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    I still need to have the fuel preasure checked but it just occured to me being the car has 110,000 miles on it could it need an induction service to clean the egr vavles and stuff? I cleaned my own throttle body a few months back but I would think an induction service would be alot more through...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I know there are a few different companies that make the air induction system for the CTS-V, but which is the best one?
  9. Cam and head package

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have decided to go with a head and cam mod for my V, especially after reading that FI will void waranty and that it may not be worth the trouble, in my case. I am looking for opinions from those that have done the mod and maybe get an idea of what combo will work well in my case. It is a...
  10. How about Eldo Performance Mods?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I was reading the STS Performance Mods thread they were discussing air filters. What about replacing the stock air intake? I've got a 98 Eldorado ETC. The jist of the discussion was that the K&N air filter replacement for the standard paper filter didn't really offer any real advantage. So what...
  11. What's the break down of my XLR's skin?

    Cadillac XLR Forum 2004-2009
    What is the hood and trunk made of. Seems like the front fender is a plastic or composite. Are there any magnetic, dentable or rustable panels on the car?
  12. Forced induction cadillac

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I was wondering how much it would cost and how hard it would be to turbo, twin turbo, or supercharge a 1994 STS or SLS. I was looking at the offroad Northstar systems and they look like they could be modified to squeeze up in a cadillac engine bay, Any suggestions, input, or places to go would...
  13. sts 1/4 mile

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I heard of some STS's that run in the 13 second range and was wondering what i would have to do performance wise to achieve that? I know there is very little aftermarket for the STS by the way mine is a 95. I am going to run tonight in San Antonio I heard that the STS grips better if i dont go...
  14. Jonesin' for a Maggie

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    All right, if Todd throws the right numbers my way, I'll have my next mod. After the install, I'll need to put a small tag on the car, probably by the V symbol on the trunk, to advertise the supercharger. How about these? 1. "Blown" - or does that sound like I'm bragging sexually? 2...
  15. Northstar stud problem

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I just learned of a car for sale that has a Northstar engine with a problem where the studs are pulling out of the block,apparently someone overtorqued them? Can this be fixed? If so can it be dependable?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Just got the V back from K&N here in S.Cali. They did a Dyno and got 338.8 hp on 4th gear pull. I do have B&B x-pipe as well. They wouldn't give exact numbers but said they got double digit increase with there prototype. Should be about 6-8 weeks before I get my kit. I'll post pics and more...
