Is the ZL1 exhaust commander hard to install..? I like the idea but don't want to mess up with wiring

Can we just game off the fuse like a lot of the Corvette Guys do ?
Clear my mind bro how do u install the skip shift eliminator and how does it work?
Thanks

Shift eliminator has instructors. Disconnect battery. Raise car. Pull existing limiter from transmission. Connect the SLP to transmission. Reconnect existing limiter to it. It overrides the connection I think.

The exhaust commander is seemingly simply. Unplug the fuse. Plug in the exhaust command. Use the FOB to switch open the butterfly valve.

Looks like a pretty good "starter" list and yes, the eliminator and m2w switch are two very easy mods according to everyone here...I was a bit surprised that the eliminator can prevent you from going into reverse if you put it in the wrong place tho, lol

CRT, these are things you've already bought? You've got me thinking about the refurbished hids from ofer, but that's still a good chunka change vs my retrofit idea...I'll have to think some more on that. In the meantime, I'm still waiting on my catch can! Apparently they're on back order (I ordered direct from rx on nov5)...I was told today I should be updated Monday...are you planning on getting one? Or are you going to use the separator they give us? I got the impression that its still not as good as a can...

I am SURE Ofer took car of ya, be careful that guy has a bunch of good ideas. With out RS you'll have the HID's AND Fogs!! You may want to get different fog bulbs to match the hid color.

Just read a thread about that last night about the clean vs dirty side and I must admit I don't quite understand. Can yo send a link of what you bought and explanation the clean vs dirty argument?

Oh, I already bought the stuff in the list. The lights and harness from Ofer are on Black Friday sale. I think with the 6000k option it came to just north of $800.

Oh no ..... When will it end!

You mean the 6000k and fog lamps won't be matched? Lucy, I have more shopping to do.

I ordered direct from revextreme, single valve can in yellow...nothing special. i don't plan on modding past 450 horseys anytime soon

sounds like you've likely read the same stuff i did, all my info comes from here lol...but it seems like the "clean side" accounts for <5% of oil ingestion, and only really has a chance of becoming dirty at high speed/high g situations, whereas the can will be catching "dirty side" blow-by at any/all times. and no, i can't tell you anything new about clean v. dirty, sorry :(
