    New to the cts v world

    traded my 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 for this V. It came with mods and trouble. Got a long week of tinkering and googling on this site.

    Congrats on the V! I started reading on this site about 6 months before I got my V. You can learn a lot on here. Some great and very helpful guys to learn from. You will love the car!

    When the mechanic broke it down he said it has a 2.45 pulley bbk 102mm throttle body e85 built in the lines air raid and cat delete. Definitely need to take to a tuner as soon as I get time.

    Sounds like detonation killed it. Find a reputable tuner who knows the LSA

    Now that's a horrible introduction to a new car! It's like waking up in a semi sober state and suddenly realizing that what you thought you went to bed with is a whole lot different in the morning light.

    Welcome! And sorry to hear about all your troubles.

    Crap, hope you got a good deal. That's a tough way to start off with a new ride. Hope it works out for you.

    Good luck with that, it'll be stronger in the long run but definitely will cost you some bucks. I took a similar chance, bought my wagon with a 2.55 pulley and modded air box, they said it has a tune but I am going to have it checked as soon as I can.

    Hope you got it for a good price to put up with tearing the motor apart so soon!

    Surely the dealer would be covering this.
