I was waiting for the UPS guy to show up before i decided to post any pics on this subject. It almost doesn't seem real...but now it is starting to sink in. I am about to install a twin turbo system from Armageddon https://goturbo.net/ . If you didn't know, my Caddy has a 6.2 in it. You would think it is already powerful and fast but honestly, this thing feels like a dog when climbing hills. I initially wanted a supercharger but after getting together with my buddy Josh at Overkill Performance (Sacramento), we decided to try something way more over the top. This is what we came up with! Of course there will be full install pics and vids along with dyno results and maybe even a run at the 1/4 mile track. I will more than likely run it at the track on the stock 22's. But for fun, who know's i might run it on the 8's too and see what it can do. I am NOT trying to make this a "race car" by any means. I just want it to be beastly and enough muscle to carelessly climb steep grades. Of course, i want that passing power if need be. Also, that whistle.....my oh my. So the first round of pictures is what showed up today. It is what they referred to as the "cold side". The "hot side", whatever that means, is coming on Thursday. It should be the intercooler the fuel pump and some other accessories. The stuff i got today was enough to fill my entire work table once i started unboxing Once i see EVERYTHING i am getting, i will go post the parts list here. I know i got a few "extra's" on the way so i am not 100% sure what i will end up with. Also, just so you know the plan, i want to do everything (like the pipes, intercooler etc) in white and black like the rest of the vehicle. I want it to match the brake and wheel combo.

Ever since my wife traded her 04 Denali in for a 2012 Camry, I have wanted another SUV. I was thinking about another Denali, but started looking at the Escalades around the same generation (03-06) under $10k. Of course, I go to Craigslist! Normally, I always look for vehicles with pics. I wasn't getting any good results. Most of what I saw was people had listings for vehicles they already sold. I found one listed for $7,500 with no pics and hardly any info. It's fully loaded with 210,000 miles, but they claim it's in excellent condition with a clean title. http://littlerock.craigslist.org/cto/3561381886.html I emailed them and they sent me pics. KBB has the highest private party numbers: Excellent $9,456 Very Good $9,056 Good $8,781 Verify Condition Fair $7,681 Nada has $6,875 and Edmunds killed it on the miles and gave it $6,087. It's about an hour and a half away. I don't want to make the drive and they won't work on the price. Also, what if I drive it and it's as good or even worse than they say. Do I need to try to negotiate a price first? What steps would you take?
