Jake's RJT Build/ Project Thread

Just wanted to document my various upgrades cosmetic and performance to my RJT 2011 non-RS V6 Camaro...

Purchased my Camaro July 20th 2014. Looked like this...






I then Plasti-dipped my rear light bezels, the Camaro symbols on the side of the car and the wheels. I also vinyl wrapped the chevrolet bowties and added vinyl gills to the sides.




I then purchased and installed the Conversion kit for Camaros from Diode Dynamics.

My SMD12 Dome light-


My Trunk Flexlight...


My SMD2 Tag lights...


I also removed the factory exhaust and installed two glasspacks... worse decision ever, drone is horrible and they will be replaced with Solo Performance Catback setup soon...

thanks Behic2320

I got my Solo Performance Mach X-LLT cat back setup in today... Got it installed just one issue... there's a short piece of small diameter tubing on the passenger side about a foot behind where the solo pipes bolt up to the cats... It's rubbing the exhaust pipes and making vibrations... I'm hoping to be able to identify this tubing and come up with a fix where they are not touching anymore...

On a side note... The Solo Performance setup sounds amazing! Now the wait begins for CAI, long tube headers, and some sort of high flow cats and the exhaust and sound of the engine should be set!

I found out today that the problem tubing is a pressure release for the transmission... I'll be getting back under the car probably saturday to see if i need to move the tube or if the exhaust needs to be moved... I'm not competely sure that the passenger side exhaust is fully seated into the cat... the fact that i'm the only one with this issue is making me doubt that it's seated correctly...
