So, when are you installing that little engine that was sitting on your workbench?

It's at the shop while I'm out of town and should be ready when I get back Tuesday. I couldn't find time on a lift anywhere and I decided to not wrestle that diff on the garage floor under the car on jack stands. Just didn't appeal to me in my old age! If all goes as planned I'll be a member of the 3.91 club Tuesday morning.

So your having the dealer swap it for you? I'll admit, doing the swap on jack stands does not sound appealing.

Not the dealer. A local shop given to me as a reference from the mechanic who did the gear swap. A bit of a gamble on my part since I'm going off of just one reference. The online reviews were good too. Shop owner and shop made a good first impression so I left the Camaro there and headed off to DE. So we will see. I'll fill you in once I get it back.

Dang, your trusting. Leaving your baby and heading out of town. I guess it's no different than dropping our baby's off at Vengeance though. What is the name of the shop if you don't mind me asking?

Do your research, the V6's are pretty finicky on exhaust. Some sound real good and others sound real bad.

Get in touch with Richard Wright's Chop Shop in Lexington. He does a lot of customs bikes and cars. If he doesn't do it, he will know who does. As a plan "B", call Ultimate Audio also in Lexington.
