Second Oil Change today. 5,237 miles, first oil change was at 896 miles. So around 4,300 miles on her since the last time. Also checked out the Dimple Magnetic Drain Plug that I installed last oil change. A few tiny little metal flakes, but really clean. I actually expected it to look much worst, with all kinds of shavings, but it looked really good. Then I opened the drain on my Catch Can which was only installed back on July 13th, so maybe at most I'd say 500 miles ago. For some reason I forgot to write/log the mileage when I did the install. Anyway, not one drop of oil. Seriously, NOT ONE DROP CAME OUT. The drain hose still looks brand new. Checked all the connections and everything looks perfect. I guess 500 miles is not enough miles.

p.s. still trying to get that Noweeds video together. They sure loved the sound at the dealership.

Okay, I tried to make a quick video. Stock/Pre-set/Wide Open. But I think I accidentally did Stock/Wide Open and then Pre-set. Then of course my sneaky sneaky husband tried to get me, the Mad Woman behind the wheel on video after I made sure and explicitly said don't video me! Men, you can't trust any of them, oh well I'll try,to get a better one, maybe from inside the car!

Oh my God, didn't realize just how corny it is until I just watched here. Too late now... The wide open was actually the Pre-set, about 20% open, near the end, my mistake. So take it easy on me, that's the first and only video I've ever done. Sounded like a good idea in my head, but reality is a whole nother thing!

Here's a much better video of the Stock, Pre-set, which I'm guessing is around 20% open, and Wide Open. Which I noticed on the video you can't even hear my husband say "Wide Open". But I'll say "Wide Open" is LOUD. Everybody will definitely hear you coming, a block away probably. And with a push of a button you can go back to that beautiful rumbling stock sound! I drive mostly in the Pre-set mode. Love that deep Rumble!

That sounds great! I think after hearing your video and talking to some friends, I am going to go this route. I was originally going to do headers now that I am tuned, but NOWEEDS seems to be the way I am leaning now.

Thanks for posting this video!

Just did my usual Walmart run and saw all the kids and moms over by the get ready to go back to school stuff. Well last year I missed out on getting a ZL1 Notebook, and today I was able to grab the last two! Not an Ashen Gray on the cover, looks more like the Blue Ray color, but definitely good enough. At $1.98 how can ya go wrong, now I got some place to write all my mods and notes. Been using the old SS notebook so I'm very happy with my new ZL1 notebook!

Well I've got about two more months in Massachusetts, and then off to Texas! So I'm actually considering/thinking about maybe Selling my Baby. Once I'm all settled in with a new home, job, and ready for a new toy, who knows, maybe the new Stingray! Not sure what I could get for my ZL1. Got about 60K in her and under 6,000 miles. I know I wouldn't take less than 51K. I've gotta decide??? Not comfortable leaving my husband up here in Mass with the keys, and I don't want to take her to Texas until I'm all settled. My husband will meet up with me in Texas after he sells our house here in Mass, but that probably won't be until next Spring/Summer. He definitely drives way too fast! Then again, selling a car is probably no picnic......

Oh no! You're getting rid of The Devil's Nightmare?! That has got to be a tough decision, but a new Stingray would be sweet! What part of TX are you moving to? My in-laws are in San Antonio.

If I were moving to Texas, (not just yet) I would keep the ZL1 and use one of the mod shops in Texas. There are a few shops that have great feedback from customers on here. One of the reason I need to leave California. Not a mod friendly state, no LT headers, no way!
