Finally got these installed and the car is on the ground. First up is the K-sport. These things are well worth the money. I upgraded the rear springs to 650 lb eibachs. The ride slammed is better than it was stock, BY FAR. I will post some pics up hopefully tonight but the car rides very nice. These are definalty not a track set up. For me PERSONALLY the ride is too soft. I would like 750lb up front and 850 lb rears. I need to make a call to APEX to see what we can do about the front spring rate. I know the Eibachs wont work. For 90% this set up is absolutley ideal. For the 10% hard core guys like that a race car for the street, they are too soft. I am very impressed with the quality and ride, as well as the adjustability. I have them cranked up all the way to hard.

The DMH cut outs are loud as shi!. These things are well worth the money. I paid $369 for the two cutouts and $400 for the install. They are far superior to the QTP'S They open up in half the time and close very quickly. These are the new ones that attch directly to the factory pipe. People snap there necks when I go buy, Its VERY deep and gurgles on Decel. These are great. When I leave the house I have them close so my nieghbors dont bitch. When I'm outside the gates their wide open. Damn near half the price of the B&B's. Suprisingly, it doesnt feel like I've lost and low end torque by my butt o meter. Both Mods WELL worth the money. I will try to put some pics up tonight!:thumbsup:

The ride is actually soft with the 560/650 springs. The cutouts are a bargain compared to an aftermarket exhaust. You figure $760 installed versus $1400 for a catback installed!:thumbsup:

Agreed!! Nice set up for me I have had 0 problems the last month or so and love the ride.. I can still call it a cadillac and not a wagon with this set up. Nice to see someone else has a CTS-V sitting the way it should..:thumbsup:

NO THANKYOU!! I've had a lowered car and it is nothing but a major PITA...getting onto alignment racks, changing a tire, scraping the shit out the bumpers....I've had it, don't want it...I agree looks good...but not worth the crap that goes along with it.
