    I'll stop by your pit and say hello!

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    I will for sure be there, but more than likely in my GN with a for sale sign in the window. I have a couple "excuses" lol 1.) The Camaro needs a better tune before I start beating on it at the racetrack. I'm putting that off until after I get the cankcase pressure under control and the rear...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    With the help of my girlfriend, I opened up the bumper for some more air flow to my intercooler. I'm hoping this will reduce the chance of KR, but I'll have to fill it in with some sort of mesh. The gaping hole looks really bad from any other angle!

    Well that doesn't look right, does it? I guess the reason my clutch wouldn't disengage is a bit simpler than I thought. I can finally bang gears! This is after saying "screw it" though. Other odd damage includes both return springs for the clutch and brake pedals being out of place. The...

    Yesterday I gave the tech inspectors one less reason to kick me off the track. It wasn't the highest on the list of priorities, but it's one less thing to worry about nonetheless.

    It's unfortunate because I would have plenty time to get all the things done to make it livable and reliable if I had space. The GN really gets in the way of space consuming projects since it's a garage queen and I only have two spaces. With that said, I'd rather spend the rest of the nice...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    I replaced the PCV plug with a modified aftermarket GN unit. I know these aren't the greatest, but it seals under boost a lot better than the Camaro unit did. I plan to buy the RJC PCV for my GN, so I will try it for size on the Camaro before I install it. That would be an even better...

    Eventually I will get a proper catch can and a new PCV. Until then, this and the valve cover breather should slow my smoking problem down. I don't really have a good place to put a catch can unless I get an HVAC box delete plate. Those are a big pain to install on these cars especially since...

    I removed the PCV and JB welded it shut. After trying to force it shut with compressed air, it was pretty wild to see how much these will leak under boost. The first long drive was a success! I no longer have obnoxious clouds coming from the breather or rear main seal, but my tune is off now...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    I haven't been here in here much, but I've still been slowly plugging away. Life has been getting in the way, and the Camaro is at the bottom of the list of priority. Since this car is so incredibly rusty I decided to turn my 20 minute rear sway bar end link job into a couple days. There are...

    It's all good. It was worth it to get the car back on the road and experience Power Tour. Normally, I would not have cut corners like that, but desperate times call for desperate measures!

    Update time The spark issue is solved. My 3-6 coil went bad on me, so I replaced it with a spare I had laying around. I have a feeling that this is going to be a common issue with my car because of my intense under hood temps. Coils don't like that, and mine sit right above the driver side...

    EGR Delete

    You will need to have it turned off in the ECM as well if you don't want a CEL.
