Lingenfelter Upgrades the Cadillac CTS-V
The power upgrade includes a E-coated supercahrger drive pulley, an 8-rib serpentine belt, solid supercharger isolator coupling, a special air duct kit and others. The only visual modification is the presence of the tuner’s logo on the air duct kit. The company also remaps the engine’s electronic control module. The package costs $589.95 (this doesn't include the installation charges).
"Our new supercharger pulley upgrade kit produces excellent horsepower and torque improvements, while maintaining a safe level of boost and supercharger RPM," said Ken Lingenfelter, the owner of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
The Cadillac CTS-V is a special car in GM’s garage as the company’s CEO, Bob Lutz challenged automotive journalists to see if any competitor of the performance Caddy could beat the car on a track.
The race took place on the Monticello Motor Club in Monticello, N.Y. Lutz didn't win, but the victory was taken by another CTS-V, driven by ex-GM Performance Division Executive John Heinricy. More importantly, the CTS kicked some serious car "rears", such as those of a BMW M5, a BMW M3, an Audi RS4 and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X. In addition to that, it humiliated the Jaguar XFR, as the Jaguar officials denied the car’s access to the race, invoking potential brake overheating issues.

Hennessey has a great name for many good reasons, still I couldn't be happier with the work Lingenfelter did on my CTSV, (427 package with the very best of components, machining and tuning) and 25,000 miles including lots of great track-day time I couldn't be more pleased. You probably couldn't go wrong with either but Lingenfelter definitely deliverd for me.
I'm taking my CTS V out in April for either the 630 HP pulley upgrade or maybe the newest one Tim Dyer just told me about, the 670 HP upgrade with the long tube headers and overdrive crank pulley. Call Tim Dyer, Sales Manager.
They do fantastic work at fair prices. Highly recommended by me. I'm just saying......
