For Us Camaro VSixers... D3Cadillac Just Completed SuperCharger for 3.6L :435HP/430lb

Quote:
Project Name CTS Sport Sedan / D3 CTS 3.6 DI-S
Stats 435 BHP / 430 ftlb
Platform 2008 Cadillac CTS 3.6DI Sedan
Achievements
Build Concept With Big Brother (09 CTS-V) making 556BHP and looking very intimidating, we decided little brother needed to grow up a little bit. So we took the 3.6DI V6 making 304BHP and pushed the horsepower levels up a few notches (approx. 435BHP).
This was achieved by using the D3 centrifugal supercharger system for the V6 DI application. The results were fantastic! Great throttle response, torque on demand, and acceleration that would rival larger V8 motors. On top of that fuel mileage was still very respectful considering its now supercharged nature.

To handle the increase in testosterone, we decided to increase the mechanical grip of the vehicle by completely upgrading the suspension. This was done with a set of D3/KW Variant 3 coilovers, D3 Chassis Bracing, Big Brake Kit (Check Onstar Cadillac), D3 Competition Sway Bars, D3 Steel Braided Brakelines, and 19” Forgeline 3-piece wheels. Apparently little brother isn’t quite the pushover as the aforementioned upgrades yields performance and handling characteristics that won’t let big brother run away into the sunset just yet!

Now that the performance and handling have been addressed we naturally had to top of the styling in typical D3 fashion by making little brother look equally, if not more menacing than big brother. We installed the D3 Front Fascia, Front Grille, Side Skirts, Rear Bumper Diffuser, Rear Spoiler, and Rear Roof Spoiler. This complemented the overall scope of the performance build and really showed that with the right parts and details, little brother CAN walk shoulder to shoulder with big brother!

That model year CTS probably has a different ECU; but, since the fuel delivery issue with the ECU on the Camaro has tentatively been solved, it would be great if this kit could be modified for the Camaro.

There's finally some hope for a supercharger!

Let's just hope they realize that most of their potential sales will come from the Camaro not the CTS

Just out of curiosity, what would something like this cost to have done. I mean no one probably knows exact numbers but a SWAG (scientific wild ass guess) will suffice.

wow if its 12 grand. That's not worth it lol. Not for that power gain. SS would have been better... and probably more fuel efficient than a Supercharged V6. I love the video though, I love that BOV at the end LOL =D

-EDIT- also, nice looking Caddy =D

Exciting!

But daaamn....if a whole new fuel system, ECU, and 12 grand is what it takes to supercharge the LLT, then looks like theres going to be VERY few supercharged V6ers on the road lol.

Lets hope the magnacharger thread pans out a bit more

I hope that 12k was for EVERYTHING they did to that caddy. like the exterior mods, suspension, etc.

I remember somewhere that GM was changing the V6's ecu from bosch to I believe a delphi unit in the 2012 model year, which will make it much easier to modify the engine for boost and for what ever performance mods that the LLT has been denied so far.
