  1. 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...

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if there is anyone out there that can help. I just ordered the corsa exhuast (part# 14157) but need to know how to install or what needs to be cut or welded. I just would like to have some kind of idea on the install before I take the muffler and pipes to my...
  4. Adding a subwoofer - any full guides?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I understand how to install a subwoofer -wiring, power, etc. My main concern is where do I get the leads from on this car, since it doesn't have a dedicated line-out? I need to know where to get the 12v trigger, and l/r channels, even if I have to use a high level converter (yuck). I'm tired...
  5. Power Window Module - Reflash??????

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I am doing some research on installing a driver's side power window module. One web site said that it needs to be reflashed/reprogrammed. I called a Cadi dealer in town and they said yes they can do it for $100. I then called my local ASE mechanic who was a Cadi tech for 20 years up to 2008...
  6. Dyno results - Stock ECU vs. W4M retuned ECU after Kooks install

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    A couple months ago I finally got my Kooks headers installed, after having them for a year or so. I didn't particularly want to do a mail-order tune, and while I was stationed out in WA I just didn't have time between deployments to find a good tuner, so the headers sat on my family room floor...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Looking to upgrade my 09's exhaust. While I'm at it "thinking" adding headers and modified (sufficient enough to get me thru inspection) cats too. There's a lower pulley upgrade in the future. :yup: Knowing the Corsa's have low drone technology, having used a set on my 03 C5 Coupe, at idle I...
  9. Ease of install and mileage from motor mounts???

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I had CS gray motor mount installed and lasted 2-3 months. I drive my V about 600 miles a month. CS sent me black mm's free of charge this time which was really nice of them. The UUC's seem to be an easier install with locating pins and 2003Rc51 mm's seem even I right? I'm wondering...

  14. HID - what are they, how do you install?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I've never installed HID in an automobile before, but I know that cars with HID's look great at night. I was under the impression that an HID was just a bulb that you can buy and put in your headlight assembly, and then boom, the job is done. 5 minutes. I'm starting to get the impression that...

    I am finally getting going on replacing the vinyl roof on my '67 75, and I'm not seeing how to remove the "rails" that trim up the roof. They look like they're held on with clips that are retained by nuts *inside* the car. Am I going to have to remove the interior & headliner to get at these...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I'm looking at the install guide for the Maggie for the 05 V when I came across a step that's going to be really hard to do in my car. On step 205 regarding installing the Magnavolt it's showing that a large grey wire needs to be cut in the trunk on the passenger side and spliced with the...
