----------i was wondering who has the fastest cts w/mods list your mods and 0-60 times and 1/4 mile times. this should be interesting. LOL :yup::yup::yup:
Head on down to Eddyville Raceway Park and find out!I would like to know the numbers for the AWD with 3.6DI. I bet it is a full second slower than the RWD with manual. My AWD Coupe feels only as fast as 2002 Grand AM GT I used to have that only has 175 HP from the 3400 engine.
Thanks buddy.that's a great 1/4 mile time any mods.:yup:
I have driven every CTS model and I can say without a doubt the AWD coupe is faster than a Grand AM coupe GT as I had one of those brand new. The thing with the AWD coupe that kills performance is the long first gear ratio and the weight, in my opinion the AWD coupe would feel a lot better with much closer gear ratio's similar to my RWD Coupe. Not everyone enjoys a manual trans but it definitely improves the performance on these carsI would like to know the numbers for the AWD with 3.6DI.

About a week ago I commented on a post about a guy not wanting to buy the STS over a CTS because the STS was a V8 and he feared the fuel economy would be bad. I forewarned him that my car was only getting 14 mpg and I was unhappy with that being its a modern fuel injected V6 which I think is a valid point and I got chastised for it. I didn't realize I bought a Buick and all these old farts come on here and piss and moan at anyone that has a strong opinion about something. Performance is a huge industry here in the U.S and I have modified every car I have ever owned. Wanting to know what time someone is putting down and with what mods is a great question. If I like the results someone is getting I would consider going that route myself.Man you guys on the cts side are a bunch of wimps. Now I see why people don't like the forum
It would be interesting to see what IPF/KPE's ECU and TCU tuning do for 1/4mi times (each individually, and together). I've never driven a 2nd gen CTS, but my experience with various other cars over the years is that modern automatics really won't let you launch a car. There's always a perceptible hesitation off the line due to whatever torque management or electronic throttle limitations are programmed into the ECU and TCU, and that just kills any chance of a good 60' time.From the numbers it looks like getting a good 60' is the biggest problem. Trap speeds should be good for mid/low 14's if you can get the car to hook.
OK, I'll take offense at this remark. I'm old, and I own a Buick too. Let it be known that I previously did not piss and moan over your opinion.I didn't realize I bought a Buick and all these old farts come on here and piss and moan at anyone that has a strong opinion about something.
