Mallet upgrade for CTS-V

On Ebay they have had an ongoing auction for CTS-V with the Mallet heads and cam package. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...522496421&rd=1
Doesn't this seem a little steep? Is the Mallet package proven?

Mallet CTS-V

I've seen that CTS-V on EBAY. I do agree, it might be a little steep.

Mallet is a tried and true LSx tuner/modifier. If the claims were made by Mallet, they are probably pretty accurate. Their Corvette packages are very impressive.

I just took another look at that ebay auction... Assuming you can buy a new CTS-V for $47k and can do a lot of the work yourself, this package is a bit overpriced. Ported heads should cost you around 1600-2500 (AFR 205 Heads, not LS6), you can then pick up a performance camshaft and upgraded valve train for <$1k, get a LS2 intake manifold/fuel rails/throttle body (these are all 90mm, just like the F.A.S.T. manifolds but are a fraction of the cost) for <$1k, exhaust shouldn't run more than $1k... you'll need a tune so figure another 500 and you're still under the $62k this clown wants. You probably got a faster car too.

That is the same package that I bought but mine has a few other options. For more detail you can go here!!!
Martin Cadillac is an official retailer of the MallettV! Here is one of the pictures of mine there are more in the gallery.

Awesome to see someone taking advantage of the gallery. If you know some other V owners would would be able to take advantage of it, please let them know.

Those wheels look great... I wonder if we could squeeze in something a bit wider.. I'd like to go with a 315 tire if possible, preferrably on at least a 9.5" wheel, and hopefully a 10" wheel.

I have seen the original "mallet V", and have talked to Chuck about it. His shop does super work and the cars (engines) have a beautiful "factory" look to them. Incredible performance stuff. Now, if someone would leave me a fortune........

I would suggest Mallet. They can get alittle pricey but they do work only on Corvettes and Cadillacs, lots of experience. Check out this video of their CTS-V(don't know if it has been posted).http://www.mallettcars.com/events/20...-final_run.mov
