9-Second Daily Driver – Cadillac CTS-V

June 24th, 2017

You’ve got to love a daily driver that you can take to the track and run 9-second passes all weekend. All it takes is a little modification and a lot of nitrous.

The Cadillac CTS-V is the epitome of performance and luxury in a single automobile. In stock trim, it is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged engine that makes 556hp and 551 lb.-ft. of torque. It can get from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6-seconds and it has an electronically controlled top speed of 200 mph. Of course, it has all the amenities including air conditioning, leather seating, and premium audio.

While this Caddy is far from stock, it is still well behaved as a daily driver. This mean machine has been upgraded with a 416-cubic inch stroker motor. It’s outfitted with a Brian Tooley Racing Stage 2 camshaft and a set of Tooley Stage 2 cylinder heads; plus all the bolt-ons. It’s running an ice water intercooler, a methanol injection, and a big nitrous injection. Motor only horsepower is in the 650 range but, with a lot of help (250+hp) from a Nitrous Outlet nitrous injection system, it jumps up to over 900hp.

This Cadillac comes out of the hole violently and makes consistent 9-second passes.
