For the day I drove it, it rocks! and everything besides the heated seats work (will check fuses for them later)...
  2. Installed a Magnacharger supercharger, custom reservoir, HEX and pump last weekend

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I did an install over the weekend to a 2008 Escalade. I thought I would play around and customize the Maggie and make it more efficient in cooling. As you can see in the photos below, I fabricated a much larger HEX in place of the factory one. I also installed a 20gpm pump right next to it on...
  3. Dealership is less than helpful

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have an 06 V with a few mods, cat backs, ported input manifold and throttle body, and a Lingenfelter cold air intake. Had a performance tune a couple of years ago and everything worked great for a couple of years until I cleaned and reoiled the air filter. I started getting the dreaded...

  6. Anyone have a good HP tuners tune for a 07+ AWD?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Just what the title says. Mine is a bone stock 07 AWD. I would like a tune that someone has already taken out all the TQ managment on the ECM and TCM. If it has some other trans tune mods thats ok too. Thanks!
  7. Need a stock HpTuners tune for a 2007 V.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Does anyone have a stock tune file for an '07? I can't find mine anymore, I think it got lost when my laptop crashed a year ago.
  8. Can a tune be spotted after removal?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    There's a new bulletin for 2006-2010 GM Passenger Cars and light trucks, 09-04-026B: Identifying Non-GM engine and transmission calibrations. After the usual checking for the calibration ID's (which I think would read fine if the stock tune was re-installed) it goes into calibration on a...
  9. Just got back from a whirl with Wait4me's tune... auto V

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Just installed the max performance tune, on an otherwise stock 2010 V with an autobox. I had no issues with installing.. didn't have to pull any fuses. My car didnt throw any codes yet. VERY large improvement. The tune is a huge improvement from the stock autobox. The shifting hesitation is...

  13. Engine/Trans Tune in SoCal

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Well, I've had the V now for a few weeks and the mod bug is biting me. I just received the KPE CAI and am now thinking about long tube headers, lower and upper pulley, etc. I can do all of the mechanical installation but I am looking for recommendations of a dyno tuning shop in the Los Angeles...
  14. ECM tune and drivetrain longevity

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
    I have been paying close attention to everyones posts regarding the benefits of a proper tune, whether through wait4me or others. However, I wanted to wait until my warranty was up before taking the plunge. Now that i am close, i wanted to see what everyones long term feelings are regarding...
  15. questions on wait 4 me tune

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    im an auto and cant deal with the sport mode hitting the limiter before I can shift makes first useless...does the tune address that, or do u have to request it? Also im easily frustrated with products these days, and customer service ( lack of ) .so, i've read so many posts from peeps...
  16. question about W4M tune and KPE intake.

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Title probably explained it. If I was running the W4M max tune(with a modified factory airbox and K&N) could I add the KPE intake without issues? I guess Jesse is who I need to call but I thought I'd run it by yall first. That KPE deal is too much to resist:bouncy: Ross

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Hey all. Newbie here...I've read as much as I can on the forum, but still have a few questions. I have a completely stock 05 ctsv. I eventually want a moderate cam, headers, high flow cats, and exhaust (which will be stock mufflers with a cutout just upstream of them). I'm curious what order...
  18. 100,000 mi tune up

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    Just wondering how much do you think the 100,000 mi. tune up will cost? I'm getting pretty close to it mileage wise and i'm just guessing somewhere between 500-800? Also what tires are you using right now? I'm really tired of getting the factory ones and since I hit a nail today, I'm looking at...

  20. Does computer learn over a tune?

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
    I want to know if the computer will actually modify a tune over time due to learning? Seems like my car is starting to feel more stock tune, but i could be getting used to it too.
