Hey everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself. I recently competed a life long dream and now own a Camaro. It's only a V6 so I can't really hang with the beasts that yall have, which look amazing by the way!!! I stumbled across this site which has been a big help to a rookie such as myself. I would love to start coming to the meetings. I live in the Canton area so it wouldn't be a bad drive at all. I'd love to meet some other Camaro fans and get advice on fixing it up. I will keep watching this thread so I dont miss the next meeting. I look forward to hearing from and meeting all of you.

The one light is still not right. Works with just the lights on. But it goes completely off when I hit the brakes. And when turning it just blinks and gives a warning on the dash.

I still need to remove it and check the dip switches.

Next meetup

The next meet will be on Jan. 12. I like Bill's idea of not standing around in the cold but getting some dinner somewhere.

Anyone have any sugestions of a place to have dinner?
Maybe we can get the wives to come out wiyh us!

The idea of eating sounds great. Some places will even give you a discount for the group coming in. Just call ahead and let them know its a car club. I worked at a Chili's in Houston and my managers would love when car clubs would come in. It draws attention to their place and can increase their business.

On another note thanks everyone for being very welcoming and friendly. I can't wait for the next meet.

Did that, even swapped between the two.
I can't remember if there was a reset button inside the housing.

Dinner meeting definitely sounds like a great idea, especially with the cold! There's no shortage of places to eat in Tyler, and we're WET now!

Bill get's the credit for the idea, I just thought it sounded good to me. So now we just need to decide where to go. And no fast food please.

Did you check that it wasn't just a bad sender or loose wire. I had one get hit when installing an engine and it made it fail. Those oil pumps are pretty tough and don't usually go out. Also I have had a pickup tube come off and cause it to suck air/lose pressure before. If it was just a few seconds the chances of it hurting anything are slim.

Yeah i checked the sensor swapped with another with same results.....ive read alot of ls3s and l99s have a faulty oil pump where the relieve valves stick open...causing oil to bypass and build 0 pressure

No problem, I am running a melling in my 95, definetly no issue's with pressure. With your chain setup will there be grinding to make it fit?

Oh btw once the weather gets better I will offer up my place for a meeting/car wash/work thing. Get the cars in the air and check everything out. We used to do that in my old club in Arkansas.
