Cadillac CTS-V Exhaust Comparison: Magnaflow VS. Magnaflow and Kooks Headers
Before and After Video of Magnaflow Catback Exhaust with and without Kooks 1 3/4" headers and high flow cats on a CTS-V. Car is louder overall, as well as deeper and raspier with the headers on. V also has K&N CAI and various other mods not relevant to the Exhaust note.
NOTES: Car in backround is 2003 Terminator Cobra. Car is smoking at beginning of second video because the car was warmed up (it was cold out, and didn't want to rev the engine cold).
670HP CTS-V Corsa Sport Exhaust and Kooks Headers
Tail lights and reflectors tinted, and Corsa/ Kooks Exhaust. Front grill was also painted a gloss black leaving the caddy badge alone so it would pop out. All work was done by Autowerks. (GM badges removed on both sides).
(Louder in person)
2005 CTS-V LS6 Corsa Exhaust
My 2005 CTS-V.. warm start with a couple revs. This is mostly for those of you interested in hearing an LS6 CTS-V with a bolt-on cat-back Corsa Exhaust (with stock headers and cats).

2009 cts v snout pulley installation and wait4me performance parts
This video will show you how to do most upgrades that we have to sell. It shows inside the blower, and basically how you can do all the modifications your self with VERY little tools in an afternoon by yourself.
I installed the 600hp package, which would be about 715~ horsepower at the motor. If you count a 19% drivetrain loss thru the automatic trans...
wait4me performance Intake system, Exhaust, Boost 2.55 upgrade pulley, and 160 degree thermostat, throttlebody, and other minor enhancements..
Straight Pipe CTS-V
I took the Corsa Exhaust off of my moms CTS-V just to hear what it would sound like. Will post more videos in action shortly when i weld up a set of straight pipes/side exit Exhaust on it.

2004 Cadillac CTS-V w/LS7 swap. Amazing exhaust rumble at idle and reving.
This is some footage of my baby. My 2004 Cadillac CTS-V with LS7 motor swap and Ford 9 inch rear end.
I've had a lot of requests to hear the Exhaust, so here it is. Honestly, while it sounds great imo it doesn't do it justice. I don't think the mic on my camera could truly capture how deep the rumble is.
The car makes right at 475rwhp and 521 rwtq. It's a rocket and yet oh so beautiful.
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 classifieds.
