Prob lol, not sure if it is the tune giving me issues (cause I know a lot of people with the trifecta tune are having a hard time getting the monitors ready) or if it was because I disconnected my battery. Went out a bought my own OBDII scanner after I hit up the shop again (still the two monitors weren't ready) and when I got home and scanned myself one of the monitors was ready. Will have to take it for another 20-30mile drive and scan again and stop by tomorrow. I am sure I won't have a problem with the LTs and HFCs just with my luck you never know haha.

Quick little update, weather hasn't been the greatest so haven't been able to do much. However I did cover my catch can hoses in a black braided hose cover and it looks a lot better. Had a little trouble with the ends but got it as best as I could. So here are some pics:

Before:


After:


I do have some great mods coming up . Here is a little tease

NS-1 Stripes


BBK Ceramic Coated Headers with HFCs


Hawk HPS Pads


R1 Concept Slotted/Drilled Rotors (might hit the caps with a couple of coats of black rust-o-leum so I don't have to do it in the future)

Awesome I just got my R1 rotors today and get my hawk HPS pads next week. Hope to see a improvement. Also it would be awesome if you could post a video with your BBKs with your MRT set up. It's exactly what I'm planning on right now and I don't think anyone on the forum has a video of it.

Hey, I know you've been keeping track of weight loss on your car. Did you by chance weigh the stock rotors compared to the R1 concepts. I have the same ones sitting in my closet. I haven't been able to put them on yet. I also don't have a scale

Will do once I get them installed, it may be a little while though, still waiting for a nice day and trying to get the courage to do it myself haha

Yea I can't wait! Will def let you know, found two places around Syracuse that could install them for me but haven't contacted them yet. It would be nice to save the money and do it myself but def don't wanna ruin them especially when they are like $400 lol

I haven't weighed the stock rotors yet cause they are still on my car but I believe other have and the fronts weigh 22lbs each and the rears weigh 17.3lbs each. I did weigh the R1 and it ends up being a total of 4.9lbs lighter than the stock rotors, not that big of a difference but every bit helps.

Looks good KJ! A good tip is too use rubbing alcohol on the headers before you install them to get all the dirt off and make them a little more shiny

Nice. I will be installing mine in about 2 weeks hopefully. I have never done breaks before but my dad will be there with me. I still need to get my hawk pads though. I will be ordering them next week from Patrick at GM parts house. But enough of my car in your thread I love the Nurburrings on your car. If I ever go aftermarket that's what I'm doing.

All good I don't mind . Let me know how your rotor install goes.


Update: Just ordered a couple of small things today:

Black Gorilla lug lucks - will be selling my chrome ones that came with my wheels if anyone is interested
Protective screen for my radio
New Rx breather (old one got drentched in oil cause I was an idiot and left my catch can drain valve open for like 600 miles)
And a Gold Magnetic Oil Drain bolt

The lugs? They are lighter for sure plus adds that extra security knowing your wheels won't get stolen haha.

I think the NS1 stripes are gonna look real badass bro , can you take a pic of rotors installed as I'm thinking of getting a set for my car and I'd like to see how they look on your car , don't forget to dyno after the headers install to see the gains you're gonna get .

Thanks! Will def get some pics of the rotors installed. If this nice weather keeps up I am looking at getting them installed sometime next week, prob Thursday or so.



A little update:

Did my first oil change today and it went pretty good, my new jack works . Since the LLT doesn't come with a magnetic drain plug I ordered one and replaced the stock one. If anyone else is interested this is the one I bought: http://www.magneticdrainplug.com/Aut...lugs/AP04.html

Now I bought the extra washer but I didn't actually use it. It will be interesting to see what the plug picks up during my next oil change. O and the magnetic plug is 0.02lbs lighter than stock!!! Woo Hoo!!!! haha
