2011 CTS-V Stage One Package

/ / CTS-V Portfolio, Customer Build Blogs

Looking for a simple upgrade or two to help make wake up this factory CTS-V, we suggested our Stage 1 Package, which consists of a cold air intake, thermostat, and dyno tuning. We offer a few different types of intakes, but chose an Air Aid for this particular build.
We started by baselining this vehicle, putting down 453 rwhp & 467 ft/lbs tq. A few hours later after these simple upgrades, we were up to 529 rwhp & 509 ft/lbs of tq, making for a gain of 76 rwhp & 46 ft/lbs tq! Being an automatic, we also were able to greatly improve the transmission shifting as well, making the car even more enjoyable to drive!
