2010 Cadillac cts 3.6 v6
Hi guys just joined this community and want some info on a 2010 gm 3.6 v6 that I plan to twin turbo I've done plenty of research and understand it has a high compression rate stock if I'm not wrong it's 11.3.1 but it is possible I need to know what a safe psi number is for this engine it's also going to get headers and cams from mace engineering and a tune when it's all done but yeah need safe psi numbers I know it's a v6 but it's a fun project thanks for the info.

From what I can find, it seems 5-6PSI is safe to do. It's not cheap, like more than $5,000. I'm seeing a lot of people saying it's better fiscally to go for a CTS-V in the long run. Did you have a budget in mind?
 
That's what I got when I ran the numbers in my head good to know I was spot on its a cheap build like 1,500 to 2 grand I'm going to do it all my self in the future I want to get a old corvette for raceing but as for now I figured it would be fun to get some power out of a v6 lol thanks for the help man
 
That sounds…. Cheap. This is of course including the ECU tuning? Do you have a kit in mind or piecing this together?
 
HP MPVI3 tuner is the one I'm considering trying to find a tuner that will work with it need to do more research in ECU tuners but any help with a tuner is appreciated and yeah I'm piecing it together
 
Also was considering running a oil cooler to reduce oil temperature but I need a adapter for the oil filter housing do you think it will need one
