I will see the headrests hopeully later today. I was told I am the first one with them. Sorry to beat you out. Couldn't hold off.

No comments given(from others) on the headrest removed, except that I do not like it. Snap your head back once without the headrest and let me know how that feels........

I shipped my headrests out on Friday night. Priority Mail. But since it was a holiday weekend they did not get to Ohio until yesterday around noon. GTFD2 (Tim, the gentleman who did the work) sent me a PM stating he got the headrests and would send me another one when he was done and shipping them back.

A few hours later he sent me that PM. "Got Lucky. Headrest came around noon. Had some spare time so I was able to do them today. That doesn't happen to often. They are leaving toady UPS and you should have them tomorrow. Post pictures once you have them back in your car. Yours are the first."

I got home today and they were not here yet. UP guy showed up around 4 pm.

I immediately opened the box and started to put them back together. Photographed and installed them back in the Camaro.

I do have to say I LOVE THEM. Completes the theme for TEAM LLT.

No, not bad at all. Take your time pull them on, maybe a couple minutes. Just try and remember how the clips and fasteners work. Thus the reason I took photos when doing the tear down. Once I got it done on the first one it was easy for the second one. Matter of fact I took the second one off, and did it again, because I did not like how it went on the first time.

If I can do it, then it can be done.

I will be getting pics. the used one that I bought just arrived yesterday and I had a chance to look at it. It is going to be harder than I thought to get at the "throats" inside of the intake.
Port matching, to fit the gasket, will be very easy as there's about 1/8" all the way around the bottom openings that can be removed.

I've done quite a bit of head porting on motorcycles of all types and have always had good results but this is a little different because of the areas that will be difficult or impossible to reach.

SO, I'm still thinking it through at this stage. I'm glad I bought a used one to experiment on because I would have been too rushed if I was doing the one off of my daily driver.

Just typing this has given me a new Idea.......

I joined about 3 weeks ago in face book. Here is a few photos to share with the LLT Team.

P.S. I haven’t had the time to put my mods in “Bow” (Camaro) yet due to unfinished construction. So by spring of 2012 my “Bow” should be completed.

Intake Manifold, Before pics:
The pics with the gasket show just how much material can be removed to match the gasket, I have no Idea if there's that much material on the head to remove also. I hope not because I'm not removing the heads for porting.
You can also get an Idea of how "rough" the setup is and how much room there is for improvement.

Next are my Idea pics. It's not real easy to see from the last set of pics but there is limited access to the intake runners, meaning that I will only be able to work, (smooth or reshape) about 1/3 of the actual runner in each case.
My Idea (not final at this time) is to remove the areas that I've outlined and put an X on, essentially removing the whole top of the runners.
This would allow me to work more like 3/4 of the runners.
The downside to this would be that not all runners would have the same length and they would be much shorter.
The affect of shorter intake runners would be that the powerband would be shifted to the higher rpm range.

It is always a concern when doing porting of any kind that you may lose bottom end (lower rpm) power. That being said, I've never lost anything that you'd actually miss, meaning that on motorcycles I've never lost anything above 3000rpms but you never run a motorcycle at that rpm range so the loss at that range is not a problem.

I wish I had two intakes to play with so I could test more than one Idea at a time.

Anyone here with car experience? I'd appreciate any input......be honest, if you think I'm an Idiot feel free to say so.
