Ok, well I got everything back together again. In the interest of "science" I did not install the spacer yet. I did the seafoam treatment (which, by the way, scared the piss out of me!) and once the engine ran all the crap out of it, feels good! Maybe its only wishful thinking, but just the cleaning up of the valves seems to have made a big difference in how the throttle feels. I'll post some pics up of before and after soon... They're cringe worthy

The upper induction cleaning smoothed out my idle a lot.

The manual cleaning smoothed it out even more.

After this experience I am a big believer in a catch can install on day 1.

I posted my whole write-up here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=328400

My plan is to follow up next week with more pics when I take it back apart and install the spacer. I'm hoping to find NO oil in the intake with both catch can and clean side separator. My valves were terrible! But yeah idle seems much better, a friend had commented that the camaro felt a bit sluggish, but I seem to have gotten some power back. At the very least, throttle response is much improved. These are DI engines, so even with a catch can we're going to see some build-up around the valves - just the nature of the beast I guess.

*old thread warning*

the V6 LFX for '12-'13 look similar to the '14 would these instructions work?

Also this spacer that deadens the noise, is this required? I see that terry_b didn't have it installed as of his last post here.

I have not heard of any substantial changes in the '14 LFX. Just examine the pictures in the DIY pdf and compare with your engine bay. It the bolts for the intake manifold and the various other connectors on the manifold look the same, you should be good to go.

I would put the spacer back in after you clean. The last thing you need it to have the service tech saying the engine has been modded.
