Arrow My Inferno X [COTW 7/18/11]

So, if this is to tell a story then this is how mine began. I use to have a Cadillac CTS-V. Last year on my birthday I got in an accident and it was lost. Man I loved this car!

Haddad Motorsports

Then something strange happened to me. I wanted to do a cam, I saw the CMS was having a special and I talked back and forth with Ryan about it. The only thing was I live in L.A. and he is located south in Temecula, and I didn't want to have to drive all the way down there to drop it off and pick it up. So I had heard of Haddad Motorsports which turns out is just up the 405 from me.
Then I go for a ride in his G8 in pouring rain and I realize either he is nuts or cool as hell. Well he is cool as hell and his guys there are awesome. So he talks me into doing bushings and brakes for the car because I want to track and autoX the car.
So he installs
Chassis
Pfadt motor mounts
Pedders sub frame bushings
Pedders rear diff bushings
Pedders front radius arm bushings
Pedders caster kit front and rear

Brakes
DBA 5000 rotors up front
DBA 4000 rotors out back
Hawk HPS pads all around

Magnaflows

So the Flowmasters were holding the car back. So off with them and a set of Magnaflows went on.


The BMR strut tower brace also had to go, it now belongs to cterry.

Lexani Rims

Well I saw these rims in the local marketplace and had to have them. Got the rims and ordered some tires. Their Lexani LX-10s 22x9 and 22x10.5 rims on Nexen N3000 265/30R22 fronts and 295/25R22 rear. I figured I'll use my Forgelines for days at the tracks, and these for car shows and cruises. After all my SS is not my daily driver.

No credit cards on this one. Lol. As long as everyone keeps buying gasoline I'll be ok. The power comes from Whipple, headers, exhaust, intake, and Mike Haddad's experience.
