    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I know there was a previous post regarding the maf sensor screws backing out and several reports of people using loctite etc. The reason for the screws to loosen is there is nothing for the screw to bottom out on, the only thing thats happening when you tighten it down is flexing the plastic on...
  2. 2007 CTS-V Raven - negotiating to buy in the morning - help?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    The car is a 2007 w/ about 80k on it. It has failed (then passed) emissions twice in the last year of it changing hands (one dealer to another. car is 1-owner). Heard and ignored parade clunk (thanks iphone and cadillac forums on the fly!). I imagine its a result of the monster under the...

  6. Turbo failure

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Our new 2010 SRX 2.8 L turbo has just over 1100 miles on it. Yesterday, Onstar sent us a diagnostic e-mail stating there was a serious problem with the Air Induction System. Sure enough we took it on a short trip and the turbo failed on hard acceleration and the Check engine light came on. Sent...
  7. Love our turbo

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Just did a road trip with our Premium 2.8 turbo...Rapid City to Minneapolis and back. Avg about 21.5 mpg (my wife has a heavy foot)...I got about 23. Very comfy ride but the best part was how the turbo kept the rpm rock steady no matter how steep or how long the grade. The only gauge that...
  8. How does the turbo gauge work?

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    i understand the theory behind turbochargers and how they feedback upon the engine to rev it up with exhaust gasses. my salesman told me that the turbo basically is only coming into play when the needle is just at the redline position, and certainly, that's when the space shuttle thrust is...
  9. First oil change 2.8L 2010 SRX Turbo

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Just got my first oil change today at 7K miles....Dealer put regular 10w30 gm spec oil in and not the synthetic mobil 5w30....I was under the impression it had to be synthetic yet there is no indication on the oil cap or on the engine for that matter so I was unable to prove my point...Any help...

  12. How does the turbo work vs. regular motor

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Can you explain what the turbo does differently in running the motor vs. what the regular motor does? Do you hear the turbo kick in? Is it a jolt like when down shift a regular motor? Does the turbo kick in as go faster or just when you accelerate very fast?

    There is a Raven twin turbo CTS-V being built locally here on east side of Cleveland. Anyone on this site own it? I would like to hear from you to get some feedback on the shop doing the work. I have pics but can't figure out how to post.
  14. EXT noob seeks performance/mod advice!

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Yes, I am a noob, but... ... I've been trolling this group almost every day since I bought my '04 EXT over a year ago. I totally love it, although I'm more of a high-performance fan than a "murdered 'lade" fan. I totally admire both extremes, but I want the HP rather than the flash. OK, so I...

  16. 2.8 Turbo Performance upgrades

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Since the 2.8 turbo is from the Saab, I did a google search and found a forum/tuner that offers several upgrade stages for the Saab 2.8 Turbo. If it is the same engine w/ electronics (?) then it stands to reason that there could be compatible HP improvements. Here is web site to check it out...
