My first post on here, so I thought I would show a few videos. My wife and I just did the Hot Rod Power Tour and I don't think I could have picked a more fun vehicle to do it in. I own a 2011 CTS-V Coupe with a 6 speed. I bought it last year in July with 25k miles on it and this was the first major road trip with it. I have added an Airaid intake and Corsa Sport axle back exhaust.

Door to door mileage for the trip.


I was able to race at Madison Illinois. I have never raced on a drag strip before and I didn't realize how sticky the starting line is. It hooked so hard at the line, it scared the shit out of me and I lifted the throttle. You can hear it in the beginning. I still managed 13.8 at 111 mph.

Stabil had a dyno challenge, so for $70 you could get 2 pulls on their dyno. It averaged 480hp. I don't know how that compares to others but I was happy.

I only saw 3 other V Coupes on the trip and was surprised to see that many!

Welcome aboard! There are a lot of great folks here to share knowledge, experience, and laughs with. Make sure you have your flame suit ready though, 'cause "spirited" discussions are pretty common LOL! Your coupe looks and sounds great. I have the Airaid and Corsa Sport too, and love the symphony from the engine and exhaust. Where you located? My wife and I were long haulers on last year's Power Tour. Sounds like you had a great time too!

I am from North Dakota. The trip was great. Really hot for a few days though. Your ride isn't too shabby either!
