I was trying to clean my breather with Simple Green and it helped a little. What are you using to clean it.

I sprayed the the cup 4-6 times, soaked the filter 4-5x and the check valve 3-4x

Edit: i just checked the cup, i think theres brownish water in the bottom of the cup bc of the filter being so nasty

Hmm so my filter isn't as dirty from oil anymore but it is more orange, I wonder if the paint on the breather was starting to come off and go on the filter?

i wouldnt doubt it, my yellow breather doesnt look good to my standards anymore, it looks like the clear coat is faded Thankfully i have a polished one in use right now...

Also..a helpful tip when drying your breather, wrap tissues or toilet paper around the filter and hold it there so it will adhere to the filter. I noticed it takes alot of excess oil of the filter. I'll post a pic in a few

Haha well to be honest with as much as its to ship it down there and I think the standard shipping back is 15$ I would just get a new one but that's just my opinion. And here's a pic of my breather tampon



But it's just an idea of how much oil is still there

Dude, I don't wanna see your used tp haha...yea I'll have to think about it, talked to Tracy and he said he could change the filter for $20 shipped so I would also just have to pay for the shipping down there so idk I'll have to think about it. In the mean time I'm trying out your tp idea.

Thanks Bud! Congrats on your Upgrade im sure you're loving it


For my next round of mods it will be the Zl1 front end conversion, GM GFX side rockers and rear painted black. And the last mod for this round is the Rx ported intake manifold and i'll finally be a full bolt-on V6

Im not a fan of the v6 front end either. But the ZL1 bumper will certainly add some aggression to the front end. Itll look awesome

For you V8 guys uninterested by my V6 build do i have a treat for you.....lol jk But since i havent any money for the expensive mods i would like i'd figure i post the install of the Rx CC on my dads Vette... Since there was no instructions, kind of just made my own

Step 1 - Remove Passenger Engine Cover



Step 2 - Disconnect the 3 sensors that are "pointed" by my fingers



Step 3 - Remove the Pcv tubing from the Valley cover to the Pcv crankcase


I mounted it on the engine cover stud because thats the only place i could, the lines are going to be cut down once i get the bracket and final resting place of his CC

Well, today my dad informed me that he's buying a brake upgrade kit for his ZO6 so....that means he isnt going to use his 6 piston (front) 4 (back) pistons and rotors. Not sure if they're going to fit but at least i can try

Well, just got back from the Sunshine State Rally yesterday and had a few pictures. Also got Runner-Up in the V6 loudest exhaust competition.

Few mods to be added pretty soon are, Zo6 brakes (willing that i can find some brackets for them to fit my car), and some other goodies :wink:

(Also, a pic or two with my dad's vette)
