Thanks, good luck on both. Sometimes the best mod we can do is to be a slimmer, healthy driver behind the wheel. Dropping a few lbs will net us all performance gains in both.

Not sure, I need to remove the plastic wrap and see what kind of shape it's in. If it's not all scratched up, I just might leave it alone. I'm kind of stuck with that look with my CAI and forthcoming RX catchcan, I guess.

She is home. I just had them send it to the business address. My Director of Operations brought it to the show last nite and handed it to me saying, "I have absolutely no idea what this is but I'm assuming it goes on your car somewhere. Am I right?" LOL

Headed down to the dealership with my mechanic friend to look at some 11 coupes and verts.

If it just has some light scuffs on it you can easily buff those out with some metal polish and make it nice and shiney. I know whiteside customs is working on a fix: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...=150811&page=5 . Slow progress but if you can wait another month or two might be an easy fix. I think they are going to charge like $150 for it though.

Oh ya, it will be on within 30 minutes of me getting home from work the day it comes in. Sucks for the wait man, that's one reason I hadn't hopped on the ones from Tracey yet. Saw that other thread yesterday that they had five in stock ready to ship and I hopped on that.

Had Vince tweak your tune yet, or waiting till you get the TB? How is the strut tower brace coming?

Well this is installed

Lots of oil inside. Wonder if I need to pull the plugs and put new ones in.



This just came today.



Installing the catchcan tomorrow am.

Where should I install my catchcan?
Ideas? Catchcan is polished to go with the other shiny things under the hood.
Thanks for any input. I would start another thread but don't want to clutter this section with more threads.
I guess this has become my unofficial build thread. LOL

Well under the hood, maybe a chrome fusebox cover, the strut tower brace that is convalescing in my garage at the moment, and hopefully next week my engine cover....finally. Its going to say 350 HP on it. If I'm not there yet then I'll get there so haters go hate on someone else and get your mom to hug you more often.
ADM scoop and ww bottle relocate, gears and ported/polished intake are on the list too. I am toying with taking advantage of ARK's moving sale and pulling the trigger on one of their catbacks. We've had a couple of complaints come in about our cars being too loud. It's just my car LOL everyone else's are stock. You know people can generalize. I love how my car sounds and so does everyone I meet, "man that sounds wicked" but there's always the Debbie Downers who have to freak out and get all goofy. I may do the DT-S which is supposed to be a bit quieter. I'll be really pissed though if I do it and then have to live with drone. My SOLO's are nicely seasoned now and don't seem to be as loud as they used to be. I guess one of the bros can buy my SOLO's from me. I bet coming out of stock headers and cats it's not nearly as loud.

I'd go with the passenger side install where you bolt it on with a radiator bolt. Looks pretty much stock from that position. Don't really have a good overall shot with it but this should give you the general idea.

Sucks you have haters man. Might talk to KMP, there might be an extra little resonator/muffler or something you could just put inline with what you already have. Sounds like the mod bug has bitten you hard

i would recommend passenger side as well. there's a nice little space there just to the right of the fuse box.

I'm also with the others on the passenger side. When I had my AirRaid cai before the Vararam, I had my catch can on the passenger side, bolted off of the radiator (its still there, but harder to see with the VR in the way) and I think its looks good there. Will help balance out the "shiny" under your hood.

I would have gone with a blue one to match my car instead of the black, but Gretchen made me an offer I COULDN'T refuse (free) and so I have a black one!

Just a thought about exhausts, but I would say it would be a pretty good guess that along with the switch to ARK will come drone. How much???...no clue...but I can't see it being as good as your SOLO. So I'd keep the SOLO system around for a least a little while and make sure you get different kinds of driving done before getting rid of the SOLO.

But I'm sure you'd have no problem getting rid of it.

Once again..your car is killer man.

Does this look correct so far? Little sketchy about the hoses. I know where they go but it sez I have to do some cutting and that's the part I'm nervous about.

Here you go: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...75#post3577775 . Look over post #3, I did a kind of mini install guide. Just follow the directions Tracey sent you, you can always order an extra tube for some reason.

Don't forget you need to plug off both side of your clean side pcv now since you have the rx breather. This thread has a couple good pics of what people have done: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...=159191&page=3

here is the v6 install thread too: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109721

Lookin good so far. Just run a hose from the line comming from the back of the engine to the can inlet, and then the other from the can outlet to the intake....but I'm guessing you knew that lol.

As far as the cutting, the stock hoses are kind of plastic-like and stout. I cut them off far enough away from where the "L" (that goes into the intake) bends that I could just run the new hose overtop the stock hose. I used a small clamp to keep them in place, but didn't use much pressure.

Hopefully that makes sense and helps a bit.
