DIY MILD TO WILD for ZL1 or newer camaro with dual mode exhaust

Okay as requested I will post this up. Sorry it is not step by step pictures but mine is done already. If anybody wants help doing thier's or can contribute better pics of each step I will edit as needed. If I need to get back in the trunk I will take better pics.

~cost $25 and 1hour to complete the task.

http://www.amazon.com/LOGISYS-RM02-r.../dp/B000PI9E4K
2. fuse tap
http://www.amazon.com/Pico-0956pt-Mi...=pico+fuse+tap
3. ring termail (I had these but here is an example)
http://www.amazon.com/Install-Vinyl-...rminal+14%2F16
4. spade terminal (I had this as well but here is an example)
http://www.amazon.com/Scotchlok-Viny...le+terminal+18
5. zip ties/wire loom
6. double sided foam tape

tools required
1. wire stripers
2. crimpers
3. 10mm socket
4. rachet
5. plastic fastener remvoer (not required but helps)
6. dremel tool (not required but helps notcht he fuse box for the wires)
7. test light
8. tin snips or cutter of some kind


Steps
preparing the RM02 for install
1. crimp the two ground leads of the RM02 to the ring termial
2. Crimp the spade terminal to the 12V out lead of the RM02
3. Trim down the spad to fit the width of one side of the fuse box (use tin snips)
4. Crimp read wire from the FUse tap to the 12v in lead of the RM02
5. Unstick one side of the foam tape and put it on the back of the RM02

Remove the trunk panels
1. remvoe the rear trunck panel
2. remove the pansenger side panel.
3. remove fusebox lid (push on the two tabs)
4. remove F8 and F3 fuses

Install
1. remove 10mm ground ground bolt and place the ring termal with ground lead from the RM02 on it and re-install bolt
2. place 20amp fuse in the bottom position of the fuse tap and 10 amp fuse in the top position of the fuse tap.
3. insert fuse tap into F3 position
4. insert Spade into lower position of F8 fuse location.
5. Turn the relay(RM02) on with the remote and verify volate at F8.
6. stick RM02 unit with double sided tape near the fusebox
7. use zipties to tie wires to existing loom to tidy up intall
8. Notch top slot of fusebox with a dremel to so the wiers will slide through the slot.
9. re-install fuse box lid
10. re-install truck panel.

this RM02 unit can also be used with your homelink bottoms.

mlee, is the relay retentive, that is will it be in the same position (on/off) the next time you start the car or does it always default to one position?

If F3 has a constant 12V with the vehicle off this should be the case, but then my concern is current draw while the vehicle is off.

The link to the add a circuit is for a regular sized fuse, the fuses are the minis. And do i need to leave the fuse for the flaps out once i install the spade end?

the fuse for the flaps stays out because you putting the spade in back in place of the fuse.

your sourcing voltage fromt the F3 location and then the relay is applying the voltage back into the F8 location that your removed.

the link says mini-fuse and that is what I ordered

Thanks for the reply, going to see if it makes a difference on the way to work in the morning. I think i got it all hooked up right, i can hear the relay clicking when I push the remote buttons, but if I cant tell a difference I'm going to yank it back apart and make sure the spade end stayed hooked up, if the spade wasn't hooked up, the baffles would stay open all the time, correct?

all you have to do is rev the car to about 4500-5k in the car there will be a night and day difference.

with the flaps open at idle its a little tricky to tell without giving it a rev.

If I remmber right the spade goes in the bottom connection of F8 but yeah if you put it in the top connection they would just be open at all times.

Went back and checked. Looks like somewhere along the way, the wrong one got put in my cart. Oh well, I have anther place to use it so no big loss.

Its going to be fun downtown in the morning with the exhaust echoing off all of the buildings.
