Pull your engine cover and check out the valve covers. It's a pretty common LFX leak point.

I haven't tuned a 3900, but you would turn off a part of the tune that allows the car to limit the speed/rpm cutoff by cutting the fueling to the car. Either the RPM limiter or the speed limiter.

I don't see why they are having issues with an automatic. You don't do it in drive, you do it in 3 on the 4t65e. You turn off the fuel cut off and go.

In 3rd gear the car might try to still...

It is a crappy design. GM redid them as 1 solid piece later in the life-span of the Camaro, and as long as you don't have an RS where they are painted the color of the car, you can probably order a...

Oh I agree it takes roughly 5 years, but assuming standard ownership rates of 8-10 years and new car loans going to an unsightly 63-month+ average, they do wind up being somewhat of a wash.

It seems not only odd to be called a Mustang, but also odd to be called an SUV.

Yeah, had to do the 10 sec hold-down for the car to rev while the brake was pressed.

Feel dumb for not realizing they have that safety feature built in, but what can you do!
