2012 Cadillac CTS-V Interior

Monster Drivetrain

The heart of this 2012 Cadillac CTS-V is a LSX 376-B15 GM crate engine, topped by a ported LSA supercharger with a pulley combo that yields 20 pounds of boost. The engine is fitted with a custom Reaper camshaft, a full fuel system upgrade, a nitrous oxide system with 150-horsepower jets, a set of Texas Speed 2-inch headers and a long list of other items.

Power from that built-and-blown engine is sent to the rear wheels of this CTS-V by means of built 6L90 automatic transmission from DD-Tech and a Driveshaft Shop one-piece driveshaft, while a set of Weld Racing wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson drag radials put the power to the ground.

Not only does this Cadillac CTS-V send big power to the ground, but it also makes good use of that power. The big sedan has gone 9.7 and 9.8 at 143 miles per hour on the blower, while dropping down to 9.61 at 148 miles per hour with the bottle.

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Rall. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car: a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16. Meanwhile, I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group,” adds Rall. “While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit, I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.”
