Cadillac CTS-V twin turbo blows transmission!

Taking two years to complete, the twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V turned out great. The whine of high pressure fuel systems can only be complimented by that deep twin turbo rumble emitted from a CTS-V. When adding this much performance to the engine, the stock transmission and drive line will not last long. It's only a matter of time before something breaks, and for this CTS-V it only took two days of punishment. The CTS-V engine comes ready for major performance gains, but this one was pushed too far.

When builders set out to make a monster machine, most will run the stock drive train until it breaks if the vehicle is going to be street driven. It's kind of fun just to see how much the original equipment can handle. General Motors makes decent drive trains, but they are made for the stock rated power levels. Once you start pushing major power through their V8's, they will break stuff. So if you plan on doing some major performance modifications to your CTS-V, you might want to drive local until all the kinks are worked out.
