Thanks to the guys at HOB I know have close to 600 ft lbs of tq to the tire at my disposal at just 3K RPM's. I brought my new CTS-V to Jeremy and the guys at HOB wanting some more power. This is my DD so I wanted some good, usable power without hurting the drivability. Plus, I couldn't be without my car since I have two small kids and need to take them to and from daycare. Jeremy was kind enough to set up a time where I could drop it off in the morning, and he would get the parts installed and Erik would come in and do the tune all in the same day. It made things much easier not to be without my car for an extended amount of time. Best of all, they exceeded my expectations, and did it all in the budget I had set out.

The car made 545 RWHP and 591 ft lbs which puts the car close to 680/740 at the crank. To say I am excited is an understatement. Following is the dynograph. The only mods are a cold air intake, 9.5 lower pulley (5-6 lbs of boost above stock), and a custom tune that Erik nailed perfectly.

The car is a Thunder Grey 09 CTS-V with black interior. It has all options including Recaro seats, navi, ultraview roof, etc. I have had the car for a few months and I havn't even taken a picture. I just took this one a few min ago with my phone LOL.

I think I have a new favorite performance sedan. The G8 held the title for awhile but these cars are amazing. Everything from the aggressive looks, the luxurious interior, to the tire frying power, its the whole package. :shocked:

Car looks great. I drove one without the Recaros (the only one they had on the lot at the time) and it ruined my test drive. I felt like I was sitting on a park bench. For some odd reason, I wasn't impressed with it. It felt fast but it just didn't have that wow factor to me. I think its because I drove a 550i earlier that week. The 550i isn't nearly as fast, but I liked it better. I am sure the its a blast with the new power!

:oopsie: This car is waaaay better than the viper. The caddy makes 100+ more hp than the Viper ever did on its best day.

Yeah, the Viper is gone. It just wasn't the car I was hoping it would be when I bought it, and I never got to drive it. I really wanted to get a fun four door car that I could enjoy everyday. Plus, I wanted the extra garage space. The V would destroy that car in every category anyways, and to be honest I don't miss it at all.

Thanks for all the comments!

I actually sold the Viper before the Jeep (by a few days). I really didn't enjoy the car much, I never drove it, and it is nice to have the 3rd stall in the garage open for all of my kids stuff.
