This is a 2018 Cadillac ctsv, which I purchased back in October 2017, I wanted to do something that hadn’t been done yet and TT a v3, but after almost 10 months of being in this project I feel that I’m getting burnt out. I’m currently still working on this vehicle and am hopeful that in a few weeks will have a running car as I’m just waiting on an intake manifold that’s being built. As I near completion I realize that after I tune it, I would then be into winter over here in Oregon. Which puts a bit of a damper as I really won’t be able to do a whole lot with this car in the winter and was really hoping to have had it completed already, but as I found out doing a build on a brand new car with new components is a very custom job. And that takes time getting all custom parts made.

This car has stock driveline and transmission, fuel system has not been touched, my goal was to make big power And so the intake is routed for port injection on top of direct injection, but you can plug them and stick with direct if desired. As is the car should make about 700 to 800whp once tuned, with proper fueling the sky is the limit as the turbos are good for about 1600. As I mentioned I’m still working on the car myself and plan to start it up in a few weeks as I will have the intake then, I’m just putting it out there to see if anyone is interested in the street beast as I am getting a bit burnt out on the project, but nearing completion someone else with fresh legs could have a long happy life with this car. This vehicle has about 90 miles on the odometer so interior is in perfect shape still draped in plastic. Vehicle is also optional out from the factory, came with every option besides the suede steering wheel 104k Msrp.
Any questions feel free to reach out. Probably a very limited audience for this type of vehicle but a pretty cool project.
