Thank you. Our goal was to build a high quality catch can the looked and functioned great. The Elite is a great can.
Of course Chase!

And when I've saved up enough I'll be buying another set of Racing Brake rotors from you too. Nothing makes a car feel faster than losing 25 pounds of unsprung weight!

Yeah that "kit" weighs about 5 lbs. Took mine out when I changed to the Braille battery.

Did I start all this obsession with weight reduction? lol

I question the logic of that flat tire kit. I haven't run a spare in my personal car in almost 20 years. Only once did I regret not having it.

Legally, cars have to come with a spare tire or a tire inflation kit.

Found The SS' Easter egg today.



While its cute, I'd still prefer having a Camaro as the image.

But nothing besides that
That was my thinking too. I did the thorrtle body and intake (WELL WORTH IT!) but now I want to make it loud. Like long tube headers loud

Installed my black chrome splitter washer guards this afternoon - I scraped it about a week ago pulling into a parking lot. These things are definitely worth the 5 ounces they add.

Checked my Apex catch can for the first time - this is after about 900 miles - need to pour it out and measure how much it caught. But from the looks of it, I did a pretty good job of seating my rings

Pretty sad we live in an age where a company has to spend $$$ on a sticker :(

From the Ashes: The Stig's Ashen Gray ZL1

I believe the OEM solution to this is for the Dealer to Nail it back on... as previous attempts to Mig-Weld it on failed :-)

I think I broke my DIC and MyLink this morning....







Was just driving along when all of a sudden my MyLink Nav screen goes green (always thought it was the blue screen of death - but whatever). Right after that the Nav page on my DIC goes blank. Couple seconds later the MyLink does a hard reboot all on its own. After the reboot I noticed that my "Fuel" page wasn't working.



Had to go and reset the MyLink back to the factory settings before I could get it back. Not really a big deal, just annoying. Worst part is it's breaking before I even got a chance to play with the firmware

Nope not trading They're waaay too comfy to go back to the old seats.
