New group member to be added to spreadsheet

Carl Lehner Assistant Service Manger at Len Lyall Chevrolet would like to join us on our rally's and shows and other group activities. He has a Silver Ice 2SS M6 Manuel. His email is aclehner@gmail.com. Also while I was there today I checked on the changing of the clutch fluids. It requires Dot4 Hydrolyic fluid ( Super Dot 4 Brake and clutch fluid part number 88958860. 8 .45 oz can $10.30 per can retail)and unlike the video of the Corvette there is not two resevoirs under hood. Then the procedures are the same. Suck out the old with a syringe, add new fluid, pump the clutch 30 times and repeat as needed for complete flushing. The line to the master cylinder is not a long one so it should not take but a few applications to fully treat and flush the system. Service documents are very scarce and only show bleeding the entire system so I would rely on common sense and the experience of the folks that have had or used this system.

Show in Golden this weekend....Saturday. I was told that they line them up between the Mcdonalds and the Sonic. The show starts at 5 but I was told we need to be there by 2 to get a parking spot to show our cars. I will be going so let me know who else plans on coming. I am taking a few chairs with to hang out and a cooler to have some cool beverages while watching the thousands of folks walking around.

Thats it for my duties for the day. Kirk get the video posted up..... Larry

Hey Larry, I was looking at the registration from and noticed that tech inspection is required for the car. Can you check with them and see if I can have an NHRA track official do the tech? They do them all the time for the drag strip.

Thanks!

ARH headers, 3" exhaust and Magnaflow muffler

Hey everyone,
I got my exhaust done, baseline dyno #'s before pipes were
368 hp and 373 lb.ft. torque. Got the exhaust done and I thought
my car ran good before, it's like night and day. It runs like it's on fire
now, and I haven't even got the tune done yet! Sounds great too!
I'll post the dyno results as soon as the tune is done, probably on Thursday morning. Here's some pics. Check out my new license plates too.

I'll be there all three days. Think 2010 SS RS will be there for some of it too.

I'll PM you with my seat location, not that it's hard to catch up with people there.

I will be able to go up at any time. In fact, if anyone wants a ride rather than taking the Camaro's let me know. How about this Saturday in Golden? Anyone else going to show the Camaro's. I was told to get parking we need to be there around 2 Then show starts at 5 and should be there thru the fireworks. I have a little bbq, cooler and chairs planned for the event. Nothing like a nice steak....some cold dr peppers and peeping at the ooglers as they stroll by.

Volleyfan, If you want on our mailing list for activities and rallys PM me with your email. If you want to hang at a show this weekend we are going to the Golden show and are setting up our meeting location. Getting them together is a blast because so few have seen one let alone a whole group of all different colors etc. The show in Golden is huge and a great family event.
And most important Congrats!

Thanks all!! Just got home with it (in the rain :( ) and it rocks!! Already made plans for the weekend, so can't make the Golden event, but definitely keep me in the loop for future events. I had kind of given up on it being here before the weekend, but was pleasantly surprised with the call this morning!!

Wow,,,,,better get out there and get it dried off. How was the drive home? Did you get the rock star treatment already? Sure seems like the IOM is sure popular out here in our region. Must be all that great sun..Congrats!

WyCamaro is thinking he may be able to stick around for it. Hey I got to thinking about the route. If we are the only ones going how about around 225 and up to 25 and up 6th for a route. 470 works but I am not in a hurry and would rather take the more scenic route....If we take 470...I know how you drive and know how I drive....we will be in Golden in about 25 minutes and there would maybe be more speed traps running the outer loop. Just a thought. What do you want to grill? steaks? Shrimp? burgers? We might as well enjoy the heck out of it. Maybe if we do the 225 loop we could just meet at king soopers and load up with ice, snacks, drinks, etc. The one thing I dont have is a quick and easy cover to sit under. you know the potable patio things you see at tailgate parties etc. That would be a great thing to give us some shade while enjoying the crowd. Do you have your son over the holiday? I will have my boy with me again. He is my co pilot.

Finished with the upgrades! (for now)

Got everything done! Took the car to Rocky Mountain Competitive Research, Colorado Springs, CO on thursday at 9 am. They did 5 dyno runs, gaining hp on every adjustment. Only took them an hour and a quarter. They really know their stuff They corrected my base run to 338 hp, 345 lbft. before the CAI and ARH installs. The run after installing the CAI and exhaust, but before the tuning ran 378 hp, 387 lbft. A gain of 40 hp and 42 lbft. The final pull after tuning ended up with 402 hp and 405 lbft. Gaining another 24 hp and 18 lbft. just by tuning. Pretty impressive. Altogether I gained 64 hp and 60 lbft with CAI, ARH headers, 3" exhaust, Magnaflow dual in/out muffler, and tune. It was unbelievable that these guys at RMCR could do in just over an hour, what another shop in Denver (I won't mention any names) couldn't figure out in 2 weeks of studying and 6 hrs actually hooked up to my car.
Just a side note. While they were into my ECM they also deleted the 1st to
4th skip shift, they deleted the 155 mph limiter, and lowered the temperature that the cooling fans kick on. They also will set it back to stock settings should I ever need to do warranty work on the ECM, and also redo the new settings if the dealer ever needs to re-flash the ECM, free of charge.
I also learned on the dyno, that the car will do 150 mph at redline in
4th gear Look out speed records on the GPS!
Video coming soon of the dyno run, so you can hear the sounds
FYI before I got the tune done my check engine light did come on after
100 miles or so for a lean condition and the timing was retarded because of running lean.

I would recommend Rocky Mtn Competitive Research in the Springs to do your install. Their number is 719-574-0625. Then you can get a baseline Dyno before putting on the pipes. ARH's hp numbers are right on, they aren't fudging on the gains!

Chris, send me a PM with your email address and i'll send a video with the sound of the dyno run. I'll post it on this thread as soon as Larry converts it for me.
