Rich from Car Motorsports has offered us a group buy on the CTS under hood insulator kit. This kit goes over your existing insulator and includes the Cadillac emblem and the CTS logo beneath it. Similar to the one at http://www.carmotorsports.com/UHI_Cadillac.htm. (like the Escalade) You can choose your color for the embroidery on the CTS emblem. We need at least four to get the price of $199.95 and then subsequent orders in groups of four. He has also included free shipping and when placing orders for other items with this purchase, all items are shipped free. You can call Rich direct at 1-877-367-2279. Post a reply if interested.:yup:

This looks neat.
Should this help with the whine ( in the engine not the diff) that myself and others have talked about.
The dealer said this is normal and live with it.
My Deville wasnt this noisy in the city, and I just spent 5 hours in a Lincoln
which was much the same as the Deville.
I think for upwards of $40k, we shouldn't have to ' live with it'
There was a recall on the CTS V with the 350 engine as they complained about the noise too. Waterpump was the culprit
Any thoughts?

I don't think that would look good, but I am going to wait and see how CMS constructs their tower brace, and how much. If they do it like RSM Racing, then I'll get the insulator kit.

Where did you hear CMS was gonna make tower braces? Pete just asked me the other day for the OEM brace part number.

Just got off the phone with Rich. I asked if the insulator kit would fit both the 3.2 & 3.6 engines. He said the kits fit all 3 engines. The kit takes about fortyfive min. to an hour to install. He also sells a one piece insulator that just snaps on. The insulators do help in quieting the engine noise.

This will not clear the new OEM sport Tower Brace unfortunately.:annoyed:
Where did you get that info? I'll have to call Rich back and verify, but if it fits the V series with their strut tower brace, it should fit ours. Or maybe it's the difference between the earlier years and the 2006 version. We'll see what Rich has to say, but it may require that kit.

I'm sure Rich would, but he may not be able to offer free shipping. Germany is a bit far.

I would sure like to take my car over there and hit the autobahn with you.:cool2:

I got it from Rich. He suggested cutting the insulator. I would rather order the new correct OEM insulator. It has a channel for the brace. Don't have a part number yet.

It looks like the one for the Escalde. Cadillac emblem on top, CTS on the bottom. Does not use the CTS-V emblem.

I think that's where we differ. Isn't mine (2006) already equiped with that?

Hook me up then!
Yes, Germany is far. You can put your car on a RoRo or in a container with my Underhood insulator kit then! ;)
Container ships and RoRo's unload in Hamburg anyway, so that would be convenient for both of us :D

But seriously, I am interested in that part though!
