200 MPH Grocery Getter – Cadillac CTS V Wagon

September 11th, 2020

The venue is the Kansas Airstrip Attack, a half-mile closed course airstrip designed to measure top speed in performance vehicles. Having that said, what is this station wagon doing on the course? Well, it’s not your granny’s station wagon. This bad Caddy is loaded with a big V8 engine and – get this – a manual 6-speed transmission. It also posts a (personal best) top speed of 200.26 MPH! Have a look. Under the hood is the factory 6.2-liter engine built by Horsepower Solutions of Newport News, Virginia, who also did all the turbo work. The engine bay is sans Read More

Twin Turbo Mustang vs. Procharged Corvette – Street Hits

January 10th, 2020

Taking it to the streets! These guys are south of the border and letting it all hang out. Superchargers, turbochargers, nitrous and naturally aspirated machines roll out and drop the hammer to out drive and out accelerate the other guy (or girl). Take a look. First up is a Corvette with a built engine and a YSi supercharger. There’s a 5.0-liter Mustang with a Vortech supercharger and a manual transmission. Don’t forget the Mustang GT with the Paxton blower. The cameraman climbs in the Red Corvette with the YSi and rides along as he jumps on a C5 ‘Vette ZR1. Read More

Cadillac CTS-V vs Paxton Mustang vs Corvette Z06 – Street Hits

December 14th, 2019

This is how we do it on the streets! Of Mexico no doubt. This clip brings us a look inside the world of top-shelf roll racing. It features some of the baddest machines and hungriest competitors as they roll out onto a (nearly) deserted strip of interstate to see who wants it more. Without further ado, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road. The first car that we encounter is a modified (black) Corvette. It has a Vortech YSi supercharger and can make 900hp. Next, there’s a twin turbocharged Camaro running 20-pounds of boost. Then there’s a Read More

CTS-V Kong Blower Swap – Dyno, Street and Strip

November 22nd, 2019

Joey and the crew at Race Proven Motorsports (RPM) have built a Cadillac that kills on the street and strip. Despite being modified with some of the best performance goodies available, this video takes us through the process of a supercharger upgrade. This 2011 Cadillac CTS-V will be shedding the factory blower for a brand-new Kong 2650 blower. There is a lot to love about this product. Let’s take a look. This cruiser already has a Texas Speed and Performance 416 cubic-inch engine with a set of LS9 cylinder heads by Advanced Induction. The camshaft is an RPM custom grind. Read More

9-Second Cadillac – Best Engine

June 14th, 2019

Like a hood-less horseman, this Caddy is as likely seen “galloping” across the countryside as sprinting through 1320-feet of blacktop. Despite the full roll cage and shiny pair of CO2 tanks; plush, leather seating, air conditioning, premium audio, and power steering are among the amenities with which this street beast is equipped. Nevertheless, it can dash through the quarter-mile in nine-seconds at around 152 mph – consistently. Under the hood of this (Black Market Racing built) 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan is an LME custom 7.0-liter V8 with a dry sump lubrication system. It has Mast cylinder heads and twin Precision Read More

POV Ride Along – 750HP Cadillac CTS-V

September 7th, 2018

Hello drag racing fans. Get in, buckle up, and hold on. You are on-board what is being billed as the ultimate grocery-getter. It is a stock-motor 2009 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan and (as you are about to see) it is mind-numbing from the passenger seat. Under the hood is a stock (supercharged) 6.2-liter V8 with a set of LSA cylinder heads and ARP fasteners. The Lingenfelter supercharger has undergone an extensive porting process and both supercharger drive pullies have been upgraded (oversized). The car has been enhanced with a full accoutrement of bolt-ons (including a 102-millimeter throttle body) and tuned by Read More

All-Motor LS3 Swapped RX7 – Street Hits

August 30th, 2018

Alright street racing enthusiasts; who remembers cramming big V8 engines between the fenders of a tiny Chevy Vega, Opel, or Mustang II? Those were the days. We could build a 5.7-liter Chevrolet engine (four-bolt mains) that could hang with anything on the street (roll and dig). The Vega, Opel, and Mustang II have all gone away. That leaves us with the heavier Camaro/Trans Am, Mustang, W-Body, and G-Body. Luckily, these days we have access to better power-adders – at unbelievable prices – than we could’ve ever imagined in those days. Nevertheless, it would be great if a blue-collar guy could Read More
