2004 Cadillac CTS-V w/LS7 swap. 0-60 in roughly 4.5 seconds
This is some footage of me launching my 2004 Cadillac CTS-V rocket ship.
The V has an LS7 motor swap and Ford 9 inch rear end.
The car makes right at 475rwhp and 521 rwtq. It's a rocket and yet oh so
This launch was done on a private back road with no other cars. I stopped
at 60 so please don't give me any grief about "road racing" and garbage
like that. Additionally, I only launched the car like this one time for
the sake of recording it. It's not typical driving for me, although with
the Ford 9 inch rear you could probably launch 1000 times like this and
have no issues at all.
Based on the timing of the video this 0-60 took somewhere between 4-5
seconds. Obviously this run was done far below 100% due to my lack of 3
hands (camera, steering wheel, shifter) This was done with one hand on the
camera and one shifting, and there's something about 521 rwtq that likes to
try to throw the back end out so I had to back off a little since I was
keeping it straight with my knees.. :) I actually wouldn't be surprised if
it could manage a sub-4 second 0-60.
As of 08/20/2009 it's up for sale... why, you may ask, would I part with
such a beautiful and unique monster. Well... I just found out that I have
much more live version of a real baby on the way. And this "toy" is one of
the sacrifices I'll be making.
If you're interested in a full list of mods, details, and price, you can
find it listed on the http://www.cadillacforums.com/ in the CTS-V

2009 CTS-V stock exhaust vs. Corsa axleback exhaust
I strongly advise using earphones for this video for best audio output.
I compare the stock mufflers with the Corsa axleback Exhaust in my 2009 CTS-V (automatic) at
Revs at rest
Acceleration on the freeway
Ambient noise at freeway speed
The primary changes with the Corsa are loss of drone at low rpms, and
louder, deeper Exhaust tone at WOT.
SVT Cobra's and a CTS-V Playing on the Highway
If you've seen some earlier videos then a three of these cars will look
familiar. Needless to say they all sound sick and there is nothing better
than 4 sick cars playing on the highway. The black Cobra is probably the
loudest in this group.
