Put her up on ramps and jack stands. Clutch time. In Houston Texas. In Summer. Even in a shade/garage... Pour me in a bucket.

A month ago, the CVT on my ProCharger i-1 had gone out and I shipped the unit back for repair under warranty. They rebuilt the entire unit instead of just fixing what was wrong. Great customer service. Today I finally had time to reinstall the unit. It is so nice to have boost again. They mentioned one possible cause of the CVT failure was ingestion oil via its air cooling line coming off the intercooler. I now have both heads vented through a catch can to stop that, plus another possibility was over-oiling the air filter, so I'll be extra careful there.

Update: After so many fits and starts and mental blocks and no-tools and acquisition thereto to resolve and gnashing of teeth and difficulty of this or that... she's *finally* ready for me to yank the transmission for that clutch...

...so many 'well, that's not right' going on with this 'easy' job.

/But I'mma get it. Kinda have to now.

Never did like the over sized chrome "GT". I thought about replacing it with a black one, but wanted something subtle and different. So I tried this.

Steeda IRS subframe braces installed. Easy enough to do in my driveway with basic hand tools. Everything fit well except that the bolt holes in the driver side of my chassis were a little too far apart, or the slots on the front end of the brace were a little too close together. I widened the slots about a sixteenth inch with a drill and it was all good after that.

It’s always something isn’t it. Glad you got it together.

A little of gt350 added

Just had to try these. The Royal Crimson was a bit of a pain to get right because it is a four stage color, (adhesion promoter, base color, pearl coloring and finally clear). Not for the faint of heart.
