K&N Press Release:
The 2016-2017 CTS-V was designed and developed to be able to participate in track driving without making any modifications, as virtually everything required was already engineered into the car.
These include a Brembo high-performance brake system ready track days straight from the showroom floor, third-generation Magnetic Ride Control that delivers a 40-percent faster damping response, a driver-selectable track mode which adjust a number of electronic variables, and sticky 19-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. From the factory, the CTS-V can corner at nearly 1.0 g.
The power behind the new CTS-V’s capability is an all-new, more powerful 6.2L supercharged V-8 engine. The engine and heads are all aluminum, with a bore of 4.06” and a stroke of 3.62”, which helps allow for a maximum engine speed of 6600 rpm.
While it seems that all the bases are covered, there’s more you can do with your 6.2 L Cadillac CTS-V, like install a K&N 33-5059 replacement air filter. These filters have been developed to increase up to 50% more air flow, which adds power to your air hungry supercharged 6.2 L engine.
When you have a large-displacement engine with forced induction, the engine “wants” as much intake flow as possible, as its ability to deliver fuel far exceeds the engine’s capacity to draw air. So to get more power out of your 2016 – 2017 6.2 L CTS-V engine, reducing resistance to the incoming air is key. This K&N 33-5059 is designed to improve response when you step on the throttle, and more torque throughout the operating range of the engine when you install a K&N replacement filter.
The only maintenance required for a K&N replacement filter is a service easily completed on your own. At intervals of 50,000 miles (depending on your driving conditions) utilize a K&N Air Filter Cleaning Kit to clean and re-oil your air filter -- bringing it back to brand-new condition and ready for another 50,000 miles of driving.
Your one K&N air filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement.
