It is 2022 now. I own a 2013 Cadillac CTS 3.6L Premium. I read some old posts back from 2012-2013, about swapping an LS9 from peoples existing LSA. Today, more and better advancements have been proven. I was going to ask the community about changing from the LFX to an LS9 if it was an easy-fit surgery? I know I will be doing a marriage swap. Some may ask why go through that instead of buying a V for close gains? Well, The Premium White Diamond Tricoat with the Cashmere interior with the Rosewood ( I think it is), trim is why. I paid only $15,000 for mine a year ago. Now after another year maybe 2 years from now, paying the bank to claim ownership, I plan to do this swap. An LSA will be cheaper yet, not as reliable from videos and reading a bit, that well compared to an existing LS9. If I do choose to do so, beef it up toward the new golden mark a lot dream to reach; the 1,000 WHP, I will need reliable tried and true hardware. I do ask the question has someone(s) completed the task or had the task done for them, yet? If so what did you add, which Cam profile, any added headers, or went with stock? Did you try a Kong 6550 Blower with the 1.9L or 2.3L Intake? What other boosts were added if any? Since I have the Stock Calipers for the 3.6L running 18" Rims with 245/45/18 profile tires, do I or should I go to the Brembo Style Calipers? I do have Carbon Ceramic Pads installed. Which Transmission and Converter plate did you use? Do you think the stock 373 Rear Differential will hold up? I heard of going Titanium Driveshaft. Oh, and Engine mounts, what brand, and style? Thanx for your support and help in my quest for an excellent power plant setup.
