Let me know how the lights work out for you. Everyone says to get the RS package, but I'm still trying to decide it I want it or not. Getting halos AND fogs for cheaper kinda sounds like the way to go to me.

Is this just like the Mild to wild switch ? Can it work with the homelink?

Not this is just a wiring harness that gets plugged in to the transmission. They there is nothing left to do. It prevents thee car from forcing a first to fourth shift.

Wow! I think waiting so long for our calls has created serious trickle down economics. Looking forward to hearing about your lights once installed. Did you get a harness for it?

Yes and I think. More importantly I recall either tramtwo or suxhost (sp) showing the $14 equivalent from eBay. I'll have to look for the thread and PM you or put it here.

Edit: works with home link. Please refer to the link in my first post. Here's what their site says:

This controller can also be programmed to your Homelink universal remote and only requires ONE button to operate.

M2M and exhaust commander are very similar. I went with Sunset Orange Creations because each unit is MTO (make to order) and you buy right from the owner. I like that.

Lol. Yeah the harness came with the kit. Bought one that had everything included. The guys at TRS even had some helpful suggestions for the shrouds. Between the retrofit and halo (w/fogs) kit, I spent a little less than one factory RS light. I'll be sure to post pics as I get stuff done, but I gotta get the car first

Exhaust Commander Installation

I recently installed the Exhaust Commander. While an easy mod this took a bit longer than I was expecting. See the attached instructions but basically I had to remove the spare tire cover, the back plastic cover panel, and the felt liner to get to the fuse box. Chevy could have put a simple door to the fuse box.

Also, see my notes in the attached PDF. The Exhaust Commander doesn't work like the Corvette version. If anyone knows the RPM open/closed range from the factory for the NPP exhaust, please reply.

EDIT: version 2 of the instructions are attached.

I suggest this mod to anyone with an M6. It simply provides a separate clutch reservoir like every other GM M6 vehicle (why they didn't install it on the Camaro is beyond me) which keeps the brake reservoir from becoming contaminated. It also helps with the clutch pedal sticking to the ground at high RPM. We also offer and use the LPE clutch return springs.

You can find some info HERE. It is a nice solution that doesn't require any drilling and includes everything needed for a plug and play install.

Kind regards,

I ordered mine too, good price. Not as cheap by the DIY but saves time from hunting down all the items, summer is going to be busy

It's ok. It plugs into a special spray nozzle that look like a garden hose sprayer. It doesn't release well And I have to manually turn it off. The foam is steady and solid but it's not high-pressure. It sort of lays upon the car and a thick rich from fashion but doesn't spray hard.

A foam gun is a solid investment... can't really maintain a quality finish on your car without one.

Also, it comes with three rubber pressure pieces so you can control flow.

i like my foamy...it's got 4 different rate settings so i can conserve a little bit of the wash, or go super-suds for when it's black like it is now :P

along the lines of mods purchased...i just pre-ordered some of the new Pfadt tri-y headers florida speed and power still had the discounted price and offered free shipping, i couldn't hold back any longer!

Visual Mods

My wife was doing her Mint (mint.com) thing tonight and mentioned that our automotive expenditures were high. She now wants a 2014 forecast of expenditures.

So, I decided to update this C5 page where I track all the mods I've done on the car in the last year. Have a look at my visual rendition. I've specified product names, part numbers, manufactures and suppliers where appropriate. (yes, the brake lines are Goodridge!)

Mint is a pretty useful app...also like the work on the pic. I'd like to do something similar, but my notes would get pretty messy!
