Check out this one, miles are a little up there, but it looks clean and I think it's a dam good price. I would pick it up, but I really want a T/A. And im also trying to keep a Camaro brother from crossing over to the dark side if you havent noticed .

yeaaaa.... I hit him up earlier last week and he said, "Title is clean and im not gonna lie the synchros are messed up so you gotta let the rpms drop to shift to anything above second gear but other than that it's good, and the gas gauge doesn't work i think its the the floater in the tank."

Dam that sucks, sounds like somebody didn't know how to drive a standard. Oh well, maybe I will still call him and see if I can get a good deal.

Care to enlighten everyone on what you meant by this? Being that we never spoke? BTW I'm the owner of said Camaro.

Introduction

Gents and Ladies,

Recently bought a 45th Anniv. SS. I am new to this site and am looking to use this thread to get info on modifications and general Camaro questions. I am def. not a car aficionado and only know how to change a tire and oil. A couple questions I have:

1. I have been trying to determine best oil for the car and whether I need to use a break in oil? I use Royal Purple on my other car and a K&N air filter.

2. I am looking to add a cold air intake, any suggestions and places I can have it done here in El Paso? I want one with a clear top enclosed case.

3. Any suggestions as far as initial care of the car, things I should consider since it has only 30 miles on it.

4. Any engine modifications under $500 right now that will help boost HP or longevity of the car.

Thanks for the help and look forward to meeting some of you at a next car show.

Dave

welcome aboard dave,

1. oil depends what you like and how royal purple works on the other vehicle,
my advice if your not gonna be racing or to tracks alot just use the normal mobile -1 worst case scenario if something happens to engine or oil tank warranty might not cover since you r using other oil brand man dealers just find an excuse not to cover warranty

2. i have adm performance and works great its enclosed but not see thru, gigachip has a CAI with clear top looks great and he loves it. if you get a cai my advice get it enclosed for heat not to enter intake and keep engine with cool air (i bet some of us can help to install the cai)

3. i paid extra to simmonize my car, its like an extra coat of glass paint i love it only wax my car one to two times a year and my vehicle shines even though i just water my car and dry. i just hate these sand storms we r getting lately

4. intake from 200 to 400 dollars and vmax throttle body 150 not painted will probably see a gain of 25 hp for both together and save on gas on both

I ended up with the Premium Porter Cable package, the undercarriage/wheel package, a gallon of detail spray, one coaster and the glass sealant kit.

Im pretty nervous. I received tracking from Adam's but it isn't crossing over yet.

1. I could not agree more, I love Royal Purple for all my other vehicles, but I would stick with the Mobile 1 for motor oil, It is good stuff and will not void the warranty. For gear oil though, I think you will notice a considerable difference using Royal Purple, I know I did, it seemed to shift smoother and the rearend felt smoother. On a side note as motor oil Royal Purple in in my opinion the best you can buy, but under no circumstances would I break in a motor with it. I also would change the motor oil at 500 miles to get any particals or small pieces that tend to come off of the castings of a new motor, I also like to chanke my oil every 3k miles after that.

2. I would not pay to have the CAI installed, if I remember correctly all it takes is a flathead screwdriver and a 10mm socket, it also only takes about 15min.

3. Where did you get the simmonize done, I don't know if it is too late for mine, but it sounds great especially for cars arround here.

4. Like Jose said these are about all you can do for the price and without voiding some part of your warranty.

And lastly welcome the this little great part of the world.
