  7. My D3 Cadillac Experience

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I've had my black V for 3 days, and the mod bug bit, so I decided to drop the car off at D3 Cadillac in Signal Hill (Long Beach), CA. Ended up dropping the car on D3 springs, installed Corsa mufflers, CAI, and piggyback ECU tune. The staff was pleasant, professional, and very knowledgeable...

  12. Valet Parking

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    This came up on another board. I have valeted my car, no problems. It was overnight at a hotel in Toronto. I told the attendant I was fussy about it. He said no problem he'd park it in a corner spot out of the way. I gave him a $20. When I went to get it, it was perfect, and gave him...
  13. A New Appreciation for my V

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I'm officially done modding my V. I have a new appreciation for this car. That is, I appreciate what it is and what it will never be. I had the opportunity to swap cars with a friend for a few days - a 2007 Z06. I can't say enough about what an amazing car that is. Not only did I feel like...
  14. What would you tell the Caddy designer to change on the CTS-V if you could.

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Aftering having a V for almost 1 year I would love to sit down with the sesigners and have them change the following to make it a better car: 1. More power 600-650 would be acceptable 2. Change the designs of the wheels to make them easier to keep clean. I would suggest something like what I...
  15. Down on HP, maybe a supercharger problem

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Drove my wife's CTS-V yesterday. We've had it for 7 months and it seemed down on horsepower. Seemed as if the supercharger was more silent than normal. I only drive it like once a month, but it seems odd. The belt looks good and it runs fine, just seems weaker....anyone have a problem with the...
  16. Is anyone running a Ron Davis Radiator?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    After my first day tracking the car I noticed that a lot of things were starting to get a little to hot for my liking. I was seeing coolant temps at 220, tranny temps in the high 100's (can't remember what it was exactly). I don't have my oil temp setup right now, but I am sure that was on the...
  17. 2004 V with Magna Charger Reliabiltiy

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Are there any related reliability issues? If I am looking at purchasing one. Also, what sort of value would you place on an 04 with it, a Borla Exhaust, and Magnetek ECU? I'm not all too keen on the idea of the super charger, and prefer the 07 but price may change. It has 30,000mi and is...
  18. Ethanol

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Maybe some of you guru's can answer this, a service station near my house sells what is referred to as marine gas, (89 octane with zero ethenol). The price is the same as 103 octane with 10% ethenol, which in the long run might be better? Made a huge difference in performance on my Mercury 250...

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Well, In the next day or two I may head to the dealership to make an offer on a new 2010 CTS that's on the lot. The car is listed in inventory on the dealer's website and has almost all the specs I am interested in. Of course whether the site's inventory is up to date is another question. As...
