Good to know, I have a manual as well.

Sorry for all the questions, I did some research but didn't find anything much.

So this keeps your clutch working longer?

No worries!...and I said that wrong In the post above my fault. I believe this is like a catch can for your brake booster because when I was tuggin on my separate clutch reservoir I noticed dust/dirt going into there instead of the brake booster.

Best thing to do for your clutch is to change it out with some synchromesh fluid I believe it's called....a member named Sycraft did this and he liked it


Anyways here's a great link to look over.

I know! The one thing I really have about it is that it is pretty expensive and it is not even painted! Even though the aggressor 2 is suppose to be a better fitment I don't trust it after all the issues the aggressor 1 had (honestly who makes a product where the buyer has to mod it to make it fit properly?) I thought about the ZL1 bumper cause I love it but I also though about getting as SS bumper adding a lower and upper grill and a splitter or just staying with the v6 bumper and getting the GM GFX splitter since it is the only one that looks good in my opinion along with a lower and upper grill. (Sorry )


Btw the seperate clutch thingy and brake thingy look good haha. Did you change your brake fluid? If so how did you might do it to mine.

To be honest bud by the time you buy the SS bumper painted 700+$ plus the shipping and GFX splitter you could probably get the Zl1 bumper thats what pushed me to getting the Zl1 bc the SS bumper isnt worth that much money IMO

But thanks Bro! it definitely feels like it stops a little bit better...and yes i did. It was disgusting. i'll post up a pic of it in a second.

Honesty since you're an automatic which means you have the white factory mold cap as to where i had the rubber hose where all the clutch dust went in my brake booster you techinically dont need this mod.

However you can turkey baster/syringe the brake fluid and refill it with Motul fluid and you should be good to go

True about the bumper. And that brake fluid is nasty. Idk what color it is suppose to look like but mine looks like a nasty yellow/green-ish color. I should prob change it?

yeah, used you can find them for a good price. Thats just what i was quoted from Maureen at rodgers Chevy. I never see one in the local Marketplace and i dont trust anybody not in driving distance with something like that.

Little update, took my splash guards off and installed my GFX rockers. I'm almost shocked to admit how much i like them as they are in argent grey. Plan to get them painted black along with the rear GFX piece soon.

Lookin' good. Love that rear diffuser with the square exhaust ports.... I would have gone that route if I hadn't found someone with totaled ZL1 with a perfect rear bumper to salvage. (Just have to get it repainted Rally Yellow)

Awesome thread so far. I love what you have done with the car and as well that most of it (if not all ) it was DIY. That car is definetely a neck breaker. I got a long way to go before I can make my car look like that.
