D3 ULTRACHARGER | Stage 3 - 3.6L Supercharger
3.6L...if you think about it, thats like a CTS V6 sitting on top of a
The Stage 3 ULTRACHARGER kit is designed to function within the confines of
the OEM CTS-V motor also. However to achieve the true potential of this
system it is seriously recommended that the engine/short block be built to
handle the additional output of the Stage 3 ULTRACHARGER.
This is the big bad brother to the Stage 2 ULTRACHARGER System, THE Stage
3. Designed to be the pinnacle of bolt on blower performance, THE Stage 3
will not leave you yearning for more. We are talking about 3.6L worth of
displacement through the ULTRACHARGER sitting on top of a motor no smaller
than 6.2L. This is more than half of the displacement of your OEM motor
sitting on top of it feeding the engine. In other words you have a V6 CTS
base motor feeding your engine!!!
Why does size matter? If we use this example of the Supercharger spinning (2) revolutions for every
(1) engine revolution the breakdown would be as follows:
OEM Supercharger of 1.9L will generate
3.8L worth of compressed air for every 1 engine revolution. Whereas the
3.6L will generate 7.2L worth of compressed air in that same single engine
revolution! The results of moving this much air is the potential to
generate up to 1200BHP. Yes, we said 1200BHP.
In typical D3 fashion this system will be a complete system ready for
installation. The best part about all of this is that it will bolt into
place without any major modifications or permanent modifications to the
vehicle. The kit comes with all components and hardware required for
Just because we have added copious amounts of power and torque that we
forgot one second about the fact that this is a Cadillac. The driveability
will remain sophisticated and refined with an aggressive edge. Our
attention to detail is unmatched.

The D3 Battle Wagon a 700HP CTS-V Station Wagon
We fell in love with this wagon the first time is set tires in our
workshop. On top of it being a wagon, it's a 6 speed manual trans!
In the D3 Battle Wagon, even trips to the grocery store are all the more
fun with 715 HP and 725 ft-lb's of Torque!
The build concept for the D3 Battle Wagon was to completely upgrade all OEM
components with the most aggressive bolt on parts possible. The result is
an ultra fun, track worthy station wagon!
Signal Hill, CA -- June 18th 2011, A 700+ Wheel horsepower CTS-V Station
Wagon dubbed "The Battle Wagon" has been completed for delivery to its
eagerly awaiting driver.
"CTS-V wagons are a still a rarity, on top of that finding a white 6 speed
manual was like trying to locate Atlantis!" Says John B. the owner of the
Battle Wagon. "The second I heard that Cadillac was going to launch the
CTS-V in wagon form I knew it would be my next car, I have always loved
wagons, from the E39 5 series to the Audi S4 Wagon now to the Cadillac
CTS-V Wagon. With less than 500 miles on the clock the wagon was booked
for an appointment at the D3 Motorsport Laboratory which is D3's in house
The tuning concept of The D3 Battle Wagon is to encompass manageable
amounts of horsepower, allowing for a
balanced, but track worthy grocery getter. To complete the Wagon the
Motorsport Laboratory has broken the build into 3 categories; Performance,
Efficiency & Chassis Tuning.
A wide range of Performance Tuning Equipment manufactured by D3 has been
utilized to upgrade the performance characteristics of the Cadillac CTS-V's
LSA power plant. The Pulley System has been upgraded via the D3 Stage 3
Performance Pulley Kit allowing for a mind numbing 17 PSI of Boost out of the factory Eaton 1.9L Blower
that has been Blueprinted to D3's specifications. To feed this Boost monster the D3 Air Intake, D3 Billet
Throttle Body and D3 Supercharger Lid
Spacer have been installed. Exhaust
work has been provided by the Kooks Long Tube Headers, Kooks X-Pipe with
Race Catalytic Converts and the CORSA touring mufflers. These upgrades
have yielded a raw horsepower gain of 244 wheel
To keep the D3 Battle Wagon ready for action all of its cooling has been
upgraded via the gamut of D3|ULTRACOOLERS. The ULTRACOOLER systems include
the D3 Front Mount Heat Exchanger (Intercooler) the D3 Competition Oil
Cooler, and the D3 Competition Radiator. The chassis has been dialed in
via the D3 suspension suite including: The D3 Competition Lowering
Springs, the D3 Competition Sway Bar Kit, D3 Chassis Bracing, D3 Stainless
Steel Brake Lines and Alcon 2pc Competition Rotors.
"When everything is said and done, I have a complete competition ready
CTS-V, and the best part is that it's a wagon!"

/D3/ CTS-V 'the BOD - BOLT ON DRAGSTER"
Too often we (i.e. the aftermarket) are too quick to pull all the OEM
components off and replace it with larger blowers, etc. This was not the
case when building this CTS-V. We have opted to retain ALL OEM internals,
and utilize the OEM Eaton 1900 Blower to its maximum potential. To view
