People cant drive anymore. I would have been pissed. Thats why i park as far away from everyone as possible. Id rather walk farther than have my car scratched up

I don't park in the boonies yet, but once I'm able to afford a respray to get rid of all the imperfections and dents I will be parking in BFE.

On a side note, anyone know a way to get a dent out of the body line on the left rear quarter of a NE....its a terrible eyesore

without stripping, and putting filler in there...that'll come later with the respray lol

Hey guys recently just got my exhaust installed and haven't had much experiance with any exhaust of any time before... but picked it up and noticed there's a flutter/sputter kinda noise when I jump on the accelerator? It's not supet loud but loud enough for me to hear while sitting in the driver seat.... I don't know if this is normal with the brand pypes? Let me know of yall have any ideas on what this could be? I was thinking that it could possibly be a exhaust leak somewhere in the pipes? Let me know!!!

Got the caddy running! Drove it around and I gotta say, the ls7 stage 3 racing clutch is pretty easy to operate. I was lookin for more of a challenge. Maybe after the 500 mile wear in period. Got a power steering leak, probably just a hose. Then gotts fill up the coolant overflow tank and make sure those connections are tight. Gotta order my custom cai soon. Puttin the car back in the air today to tripple check connections and retorque everything and check all fluid levels. Exhaust shop tomorrow maybe!

Mine popped a lot when I first got it, too much gas going into it, idk if that's what's going on with yours but I'd guess some leak/spit somewhere

Sounds like you have a leak. I have a Pypes midpipe and catback and I can't get it to stop leaking no matter how tight and secure I get everything. Finally bringing it to an exhaust shop this Saturday to let them figure it out lol.

In so pissed trying to put new tunes on my bamma SCT tuner... They don't work in my Mac (the software is windows only) so I installed paralles desktop and ran a virtual machine windows 7 within my mac. I got all the software installed but it will NOT recognize my tuner So I dusted off an old windows 2000 laptop I had under my desk firmatted the HDD and reinstalled win 2000 only to fund that won't run the software ether. I'm sitting here with a $5,000 Mac laptop and it might as well be a Rick as far as my tuner is concerned... Now I have to wait till I'm off work to run it at home. LAME. ---------- Post added at 01:59 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:58 PM ---------- Sorry about all the spelling errors. Angry texting. Lol
