Default New here.

Hello, My name is Gary.

I have a 1993 Buick Century as my daily driver.

I am a site Admin for ChicagoMustangClub.com and have a 2001 Mustang GT with alot of bolt work done to it. Currently i have the engine and transmission out of my mustang to do some BIG upgrades.

Once my Mustang is finished and back running i plan to buy a Cadalliac CTS-V for a daily driver.

Welcome to the forum. CTS-V is an awesome vehicle and would be a great choice. Got any pictures of your current rides?

Thanks!

I dyno'd it before i did most of the modifications. The car come stock with 265hp at the fly. With the cat back exhaust, 3.73 rear end gears, larger bore plenum and plenum spacer, and a K&N Air filter It put down 225hp but 274tq. i was choking the engine at that point because i was running the stock Throttle body into the large bore plenum. I predict it to be somewhere in the 350-400 range (before i pulled the motor) but once i get things how i want them.... god only knows the gobs of power it'll have.

Before i pulled the motor the car had:
  • Comp Hi-Energy Extream Cams
  • Flow Tech Long tube Headers
  • Flow Texh off road X pipe
  • Flowmaster cat back
  • MGW Short throw shifter
  • Ford Racing 3.73 Rear End Gears
  • JLT in fender Cold air Intake
  • MAC 75mm throttle Body
  • BBK Plenum (with plenum spacer)
  • Halibrand Cobra III wheels (like Nick Cage'* Elenor from Gona in 60 Seconds)
  • 315/35/17 on 10.5" rear deep dish wheels
  • 255/40/17 on 9" front deep dish wheels
  • Lowered 2.5" via Eibah suspension componets
  • 6000K HID'*
And i'm sure i'm forgetting stuff...
