I'm happy with what you have too...me? I wanna get a new one or some go fast juice. I wanna do it with a warranty, so this is the better route. My car's over 3 years old and 36,000 miles so no blower will warranty my engine. I can swing the extra cost, I just have failure to launch when it comes to spending money. Always been that way.

I can't blame you man. I want to do some internal mods but the lack of warrant to go with it makes me

When I have her paid off and have another ride then I won't worry as much.

That's my concern as well. I've never had warranty issues on any car, but a full bolt-on is bound to have an issue or two. Would hate to have to fork over more money out of pocket to fix.

This a.m. car on the dyno for baseline read, then install headers and cats.Tune tomorrow and dyno run.
Oh yeah, clutch resevoir and also he is adding the A6 brake resevoir. Reason is m6 unit the clutch line has to be capped off and he hasnt seen one that doesnt leak.A6 is already pre molded closed.

Tune will pass smog and will not have any OBD2 readout problems and will show just as stock, emissions will pass with flying colors though they dont check that now.

Tune I'm doing is the mike special. Safe, emissions friendly, wont blow the motor, max power and ties in all the mods.I never had a chevy v8 problem on any camaro I have had that needed warranty work or after going to 300000 miles on one, and these LS's are built strong. I dont abuse it so I'm good.Mike said the whole drivetrain is no issue till you get over 500 rwhp.

I'm attached to this car. We're like an old married couple. We get on each others nerves, but it's beautiful when we're together. LoL! It pisses me off, I piss it off...but deep down inside we really do love each other. Hate to see it go.

I don't know if the battery loss is coming from the stereo or lights. Has to be one or the other. I'd have CMS check it out if I do keep it and they can.

If you can pay off a ZL1 in 4 years I say go for it. Trading my car I'm looking at about $800/72 months.

No new car to tear into, but He's looking at the Camry problem we have to, sounds like suspensionissue, but it is a puzzling one and hard to determine.

That all sounds great, Rick...You might as well sign up for Buttonwillow and see how it runs...lol...

Are u willing to do LT headers, heads, and cam? Won't pass smog but can make 500RWHP. Or just add a Maggie and pass smog and make 500+ bro. Or even better just get a ZL1. LOL

I thought the last time we "discussed" s/c...lol.., under 500hp was very doable and common, even with that Edelbrock set-up...

Maggie on a stock motor is good for about 120 hp and 120 tq. That should put most M6 cars somewhere near 490rwhp. With a 3.6" pulley you could get somewhere around 510rwhp.

So for less than 6K you could have more power than that stock ZL1..........

Only thing I have "broke" since I've had the SC is the ....... nothing. My posi unit quit working prior to the SC being installed and now I'm adding the eaton trutrack. I've had my SC for over a year (I think) and put about 12K miles on it so far.

Come to the dark side already!
