Sure the Cadillac CTS-V wagon is a mighty steed, with 556 horsepower on tap, it’s certainly fast – but it doesn’t sound that way, that’s for damn sure. At least, not how it left the factory. That’s why it makes perfect sense that many CTS-V owners make a upgraded CTS-V Exhaust one of their first mods. As we said in our guide to the Best Mods for the Cadillac CTS-V, an exhaust system will make your CTS-V sound like the beast it is.
To give the V wagon the sound it deserved, we’re going with a Stainless Works Chambered Dual Turbo Exhaust System for Cadillac CTS-V. The Stainless Works Exhaust is a true cat-back system, which is why it makes as much power as it does, and that streamlined mandrel bent tubing is how it makes the numbers it does.
Check out how massive the factory mufflers are. No wonder you can’t hardly hear the V8 in stock form.
A set of custom black tips keys into the cars other black accents and adds a more menacing character. The Stainless Works Exhaust system sounds as good as it looks, which is why Co-Founder Mike Brown runs this system on his personal Cadillac CTS-V (check out the review here).Here’s a look at the system overall.
With the system all squared away, all that was left to do was snap some photos. Check out the protrusion of the tips – just enough poke to be aggressive without overdoing it.
Upgrading the CTS-V Exhaust System wakes up the CTS-V and make driving a much more enjoyable experience from the stupid grin-inducing sound to the addition of an extra 25 ponies to the wheels, so why tolerate your vanilla stock exhaust for a second longer?
