    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS Performance Mods

What if there was a solution for considerably less than that with a significant gain in power, but...

    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...

  6. 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...
