Adjusted tire pressure down 1 psi front and rear. Drove to/from work, ran a few errands - post office, pharmacy, FedEx to ship an old tire we sold, etc etc. Went WOT in 2nd gear a few times to test grip of new tires. Washed and dry when I got home from work, went over car with instant detail spray - it's been a while and it was nasty. Thought about where to mount my camera to capture the rear wheel(s) while WOT in 2nd gear to monitor for tire slip/loss of traction.
Went in garage later tonight just to admire the OBM paint and the cool velvet textured rubber side lettering on the Sport Cup 2's sidewall. Its just SO cool looking. Now I don't even like to put on tire dressing as it covers up the cool effect.

Next up is: repairing the bi-xenon solenoid wire (mine broke inside the headlight), light pipe LED swap, blackhousing headlights, LED signals, D1S bulb swap, clearcoating the pitted fog lenses, installing the mirrormount & door cup clearbra.

Just traded my 2012 SRT8 Charger in on my 2012 CTS-V with 50k miles. I had nothing but problems out of my charger and after dumping over $10k in fixes into it over a year I decided to get out. I've been reading up on issues the V2's have and it seems the differentials and superchargers are an...
I have a 2014 Cadillac CTS and
when I turn it off it won't start
back up again. I've had the body
control module replaced and
flashed I put in a new battery and
it still does the same thing I don't
know if it's the key just not
making a connection or what.
Sometimes it'll be okay other
I'm not looking for a smog guy. I'm trying to figure out what I can do while still passing smog with a V2, assuming the tester is not blind. Here is my non-specific list on the build that would allow me to pass smog with only a slight effort to swap parts every other year:
