    Turbo V6 Camaro

    This project has been on hold a while due to preforming a slight rusteration on my girlfriend's car. I did decide to try restricting the oil a little bit to my turbo though. My oil pressure was already higher than stock and feeding the turbo through a -4 hose. I figured I might be loosing...

    My stock pile is pretty big already. I actually just got some brand new OEM F-body aluminum valve covers on ebay for pretty cheap recently.

    New oem Alternator

    I rebuilt mine with an ebay upgrade kit for $40 after developing a loud squealing from the bearings. It was pretty easy to do, and my output is much better.

    Likewise! I'm glad we we got to hang out and chat a little. It sounds like we might be getting a May date next year, so hopefully our luck with the weather will change for the better. I have a lot of big plans for the car this winter. Let's hope I can get it back together and acquire a new...

    Thanks! Clutch shouldn't be too big of a deal. The rear main seal is leaking which probably saturated the friction in oil. I have to do a seal and pilot bushing, so I'll swap the friction disc while I'm in there.

    Small updates: I started taking care of the hole I made in the back. https://photos.app.goo.gl/3kEnz15S8aQGvvGG7 I'm not entirely proud of this, but it's better than having a huge hole in the floor. It's not weather proof, but I don't think it really needs to be. The tank is tucked in...

    Have I mentioned that I need a catch can?

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    Thanks man! As long as I don't anymore silly issues like coil packs and VATS I should be at a good stopping point until winter. Once the GN is put away again, I'm going to pull the dash, install a firewall plate, finally finish the floors 100%, and install a catch can. That's the plan anyway...

    I'd like to make some little air dams behind the original holes to not only direct some air to the radiator, but cover up those ugly rust spots! Overall, I'm proud though. Usually my custom aesthetic body work projects don't turn out this nice.

    You'll have to cut me a little slack on the execution here. Keep in mind, this is a project with less than $3000 of total investment. This isn't a $30k GN! Nonetheless, I think the grille turned out pretty good. After paint you can barely tell its there which is what I wanted. Here's before...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    The car runs smoothly again, after fixing two issues. It was running lean due to spark plugs rattling themselves lose again. I know for a fact that I have torqued them every time they have been removed, but I have thought every time that spec (12lb/ft for previously torqued plugs 22lb//ft for...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    Troubling times have plagued the garage again. The Camaro starting running like crap, and then it wouldn't run at all anymore once I got it home. The no running at all was fixed by starting it with my spare key, so I've chalked that up to be a VATS issue. I'll plug in a resistor permanently...
