  • Spring Mod Plans

    What’s everyone’s spring time mod plans?

    I am looking to add a fan to my transmission cooler and since I have a caliper that appears to be sticking, I may look into the Corvette Brembo brake upgrade...

    What about you guys/girls?

    Already did replacement of all calipers with red powdercoat C5 in front and 92 1LE in the rear.

    Coming - factory oil cooler, power steering cooler, replace existing manual fan switch with custom, and many more that didn't get done last year.

      Nice! What’s different with the 92 1LE calipers? I was looking at the 2014 C7 brake upgrade we can now do on our cars which gives us cheap Brembos.

      I priced it at around $600 CAD yesterday, but want to try and get that down some...

      What do you plan on running for the oil cooler setups?

        92 1LE are full ribbed calipers like C4 - the 93-97 caliper used a modified C4 casting with a "flat" spot.

        Engine oil cooler is 9C1 sandwich and soft lines with aftermarket cooler.

        I'll get some installed pictures maybe next weekend.

            My spring plan is to get the Camaro painted Satin black and hopefully get the turbo on .

              The Bonneville is getting a performance package installed (CAI, tune, smaller supercharger pulley etc) and new tail lights (1/3rd installed so far).

              I spent a good chunk of the day yesterday continuing to tear down the Camaro. One of the flange bolts on my headers is giving me a hell of time, but I'll get it eventually. Once they're out of the way, it'll be more cleaning of the engine bay while I save up to buy some re-conditioned heads.

              EDIT: Hey, 100 posts! Lol. Whoot.

                I'm going to my parent's house this weekend to get my pacesetter headers. Once I have that installed I will reinstall the supercharger, but first I'm going to have the impeller changed and have a breather installed on it.

                  Nice! I got my SLP Flopac installed. Got it tossed in with the deal for the leather I put on the seat. I'd like to extend it down to the air damn to make a true ram air.

                  I found all my QA1 shocks are leaking. So they will either need a rebuild or I need to look at doing a set of something else...Probably won't be until next year though.

                      That sucks Mike, I have QA-1 shocks all around on my Camaro but if they go I’m doing Konis I’ve already decided.

                        I was pretty peeved, but then again I bought mine used had them for 10k on the Black Camaro and probably another 20-30k on my current LS1. So I guess I can't really expect the world out of them.

                        My thought is to go Koni next. Make the car a little more fun on the regular. Question is I don't know if I should go Koni STR + Strano Springs or Koni Yellows. My budget seems to be shrinking these days instead of getting bigger lol

                          How Tinting Your Windows Can Help Your Car
                          by LETZRIDE


                          Your car will need care just like you do. You want it to last and have protection. It may surprise you buy window tinting can make your car last longer and keep your upholstery looking like new. While many assume window tinting is just for looks, it isn't. It can provide extended-lasting benefits to protect your vehicle.

                          Are cars mere machines used for transport from one place to another? Are they just a way of satisfying your social hunger? I am sure passionate car owners would feel otherwise. Don’t you love the freedom you experience when you explore the sensations that go through your body. It is not possible to experience the speed the swiftness without being in a car.

                          But when it comes to caring, do you maintain your car in a good manner? Even though the answer might be yes, I am...

                          So I'm considering adding a new dimension to my rebuild of my 2000 camaro. I really like the earlier style 93-97 nose. It looks more aggressive than the...
