    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I've had my 2004 CTS-V a little over a week now and I love it. I've had a lot of different cars with a stick but this one is pretty touchy. If I shift while in lower RPMs, it's pretty smooth. Shifting at higher RPMs is very jerky and sometimes I get this double jerking type of thing. Any...
