Hey quick question, for your LTs did you reuse the factory gaskets? Or did you get new ones or do they come with some?

Yes, the ones from BBK are....not that good. I like how the factory gaskets had a lip (kind of like a heat shield and to protect the dipstick and what not.) But it should come with them. i'll try and sell mine lol

Thanks my advice would be get the headers installed and try them out. Some people know right away if they need the x-pipe and others like me don't mind the little bit of rasp. Just personal preference. As for the sound I love it. I think the rasp has gone down some over time, but it also drones quite noticeably. I personally don't want to get the x-pipe bc it takes away half of the volume

So Saturday I installed my AAC Reverse Lights, they're very bright. But apparently are very sensitive when you shut the door. Kind of worried they might be defective. Probably just a loose connection.

Anyways here's some before and agrees.

Dope ride.

I would recommend a lip or ss bumper other than that your car looks perfect.

That would be sick! I have been bouncing around a bunch of diff ideas for the front bumper but can't seem to land on 1 good option. It's funny I never had a problem with our front bumpers till one day I wanted to add a splitter and realized they all look terrible on the v6 bumper haha.

Dude the rideskinz bumper would look SICK on your car...no joke...but that's a little too much prep and I don't trust them with my money honestly so I would just suggest the zl1 bumper lol

In a nutshell...(since I'm a M6) the hydraulic clutch line feeds clutch dust into the brake booster....what I did was bought a automatic reservoir which as you can see in the above picture has a white factory molded cap (which is where us manual guys have our hydraulic clutch lines come from the factory) and also came with a separate clutch reservoir that filters out all the clutch dust so I can suck out the crap then fill it back up with fresh fluid. This is the stage 2 clutch reservoir mod from JDP motorsports.

This is like a catch can for your clutch lol pretty obvious...by looking at my brake fluid even automatic guys wouldn't hurt to change out their fluid every now again...

Pic of adding fresh fluid to separate reservoir....after wiggling the line, I could already tell dust/ dirt was getting into the reservoir THAT quickly...might be hard for y'all to see though Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1370756622.870022.jpg

Good to know, I have a manual as well.

Sorry for all the questions, I did some research but didn't find anything much.

So this keeps your clutch working longer?

No worries!...and I said that wrong In the post above my fault. I believe this is like a catch can for your brake booster because when I was tuggin on my separate clutch reservoir I noticed dust/dirt going into there instead of the brake booster.

Best thing to do for your clutch is to change it out with some synchromesh fluid I believe it's called....a member named Sycraft did this and he liked it


Anyways here's a great link to look over.
