Nice Pics.

Glad you have been having so much fun with your car. You can put up to 315's on the car, but to go to 335's and do it correctly, it will probably cost you another $5K to mini-tub it.

In case anyone hasn't mentioned it as yet, your "SS" logo in the front 1/4 panel is upside down!

Thanks will fix it
Now for new bizz, My car was a test pig for K&N this week, Drove to K&N on Monday and got there in the am to drop the car for a CAI to be test fit on the car and went back on Thursday to get the car back at that time i got to see the CAI it looks like all but two of the ram air intakes and if a dry filter so now problems for the MAF, Got a hat and a t-shirt and a new filter for the GM air box and will get a CAI 1 month before it is realest to the world so maybe in 2-3 months, I asked for a dyno of my car and got it not that good but i have an idea why that is. (long story 87 gas not 91, CA/AZ no 93) So for the good of CAMARO5 i am working on rims and a lot more i Will update this as i get more done to the car.

I will post some pics of the dyno and filter.

So today i start the redesign on the Clutch Fluid reservoir to fix the mix of brake and Clutch Fluid, I am not to happy to see this in our camaro's and not on any C6 out there or G8's, So i want down to my GM parts Dealer and did some home work, We looked at C6 and G8 put the problem with them is that you can not buy the reservoir by its self only with the Clutch master slender, So he is also a FORD dealer and we found a Clutch Fluid reservoir from a F-150 or F-250 that had the mounting hardware to mount on the car but it WAS A FORD (And it was also $65 that is to mach on that part) And this is a Camaro, Than i said how a about a GTO so he looks it up and it has the reservoir by its self so he looks up the $ for the part and it only list's for $19.33 for one and i get a better price, Lats say lower than $15.00 for me, And because this is a GTO the part is a Holden LTD part and maid in Germany, This will fix two things.

#1 No more mixing of brake and Clutch Fluid, And i will go to Dot 4 on the Clutch Fluid.

#2 no way to contaminant you brake Fluid from you Clutch Fluid, And than you do not have to pay to rebuild you ABS in 3-5 years If you drive it as a DD

So her is a pic of the reservoir,

So after doing this to my car i test drove it to Las Vegas and back home that was 260 Mi and no more leak on top of the Brake Fluid reservoir so i think that i fixed it.

Her you go this is a link to my Vararam test on the new CAI.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...431#post857431

Some new info for you guys the 2 units are not the same in some ways as of 11-16-09 it looks as the non tune unit will be 2.5-2.75" tall filter on a small 92 MM diameter TBS mating point, And the tune unit is for a large C.I. motor at least 427 and up as it can flow 2000 CFM and more it comes with a 3" filter and a 102 MM diameter TBS mating point and more to come soon.
