It seems like we can’t get enough of the LSA’s lately, and this was no exception! This automatic 2009 model’s owner was looking for some subtle upgrades – better performance and responsiveness – without sacrificing any of the car’s driveability or stealth.
We kept it simple for this ride – adding an AirAid intake, 160 degree thermostat, a Lingenfelter upper pulley set up, 1000cc injectors, and of course tuning to go along with it. With the 465 rwhp & 479 ft/lbs tq it baselined at this car felt great – but it felt even better once we added another 70 to the rear wheels – ending up at 535 rwhp & 514 ft/lbs tq!
These simple packages make a big difference in these sleepers, without sacrificing the luxury of driving a Cadillac. The tuning especially helps to improve the 6L80e’s transmission shifting, which leaves a lot to be desired from the factory. Overall a great bang for the buck.
