I'm a tall handsome man with a career as a mortgage loan officer. I purchased the CTS-V a few months ago. I have 2100 miles on it so far. It's black on black. I haven't done any modifications yet. The only accomplishment for the caddy so far is, the spanking of a 4.6L Mustang GT.

I dont think many people in my town know what a CTS-V is -- they just think its a regular CTS -- until they hear the exhaust, then they just wonder what they were hearing coming out of a Cadillac!

I bought my V in Feb. 04, black/black. I traded in an 02 ZO6 and have not missed the ZO6 at all. Love the car and all the curb appeal. Car has BMR anti-wheel-hop kit, Corsa exhaust, More cold air box, Stainless Works headers, and Dynotech Stage III tune. Right now car dynos at 375rwhp and 375.2 rwtq. Car is at DTE for futher testing, cam and heads. Only problem is the nosey rear end and the dreaded wheel hop.

Where did you pick up the BMR Anti-wheelhop kit? I'm interested in that, how well it works, etc.

I'd like to put up a "Parts Review" section here, do you think you could do a writeup on that and possibly some other mods you have?

http://www.bmrfabrication.com/CTS-Vpage.htm I ordered it directly from BMR. They say it helps about 75% and I would have to agree. It is not the complete fix, but it does help. The kit isn't to hard to install. I put the car up on jack stands and changed it, but a hoist would have been nice. I have read were other guys have changed tires and they say that also helps. My car does not have the FG2 shocks, which I think would help, so I my have to buy a set and try them.
I went to DTE yesterday afternoon and drove my car. The Stainless Works headers and high flow cats along with DTE's dyno tune diffently brought the car to life. There is no drone at any speed and the sound with the Corsa is awsome. One big improvement in performance.

Awesome, I'm going to add BMR to our comprehensive parts supplier list.
