FYI: Typo under the Maintenance section: "PVC" should be "PCV."

I think it's for the manual trans cars with LSD. Not sure how different the V6 A6 procedure would be, other than the fact you don't need to add friction modifier to them. The fill/drain bolt locations may be different for the V6 A6, too, not sure.

No worries. The most valuable thing for me in that pdf is the link to gm's tech website. I always forget to bookmark it.

Here's another describing a LFX/V6 CAI intake/washer bottle relocate/scoop install with instructions for a custom washer bottle bracket, AND MRT V2 install: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=302280

Also, the CAI DIY could be used as a DIY for front bumper removal.

It's a little bit confusing to navigate, but there is a lot of good info in there. I always swipe it off of the footer in that pdf. I bookmarked it this time .

I'm not sure if I missed this but, does anyone have a link for replacing the onstar antenna? Mine just went bad and my warranty just went out. One day past of course.

Sorry for the random chime in. But that guy who did the DIY never mentioned that you don't actually have to remove the caliper because the pads slide right out after you remove the pins and 'spring'

Just so you all know...
Good thread though...

I'll make one for heads/lifters when i finally get around to my cam install. I made one a long time ago for the midpipe swap, but i lost motivation because no one was managing this section. You keeping on top of it has me inspired to contribute more.
