    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Well, low and behold. A day after I was bragging about how well the car was running... Driving in stop and go traffic, I hear a click then a progressively loud thud thud. So loud I'm thinking to myself it's a loose rod, maybe a lifter went. Manage to get the car home. Oddly the thump/thud is...

    On my 472 I've installed the edelbrock intake as well as a new Q-Jet however I the throttle rod seems to be short. This lead me to believe that I might have installed it in the wrong place. The other part I'm holding seems to give it enough of an extension to work but unfortunately I didn't...
