Re: Was there a stock alloy wheel?

Yes, sorry, it was a joke. It's no secret that the ride height of these cars is way too high, and for some reason those wheels appear to exacerbate it. No offense intended.

Re: TSP AFM Cam?

TSP gave you the right advice. As stated above, that is a VVT cam. The Caprice does not have VVT, so using it in a Caprice would be asinine. Why are you so set on putting a VVT cam in a non-VVT engine? It really makes no sense at all. Like negative sense. You should google VVT to get a basic underst...

Re: My 2013 on H&R 50750's

Did you loosen the suspension bolts, put the full weight of the car on the springs, and then tighten them? You must do this to "time" the bushings. If you don't, it can feel bouncy because the bushings are twisting further than they are designed to and acting like springs.

Re: Tune file for sale?!

You should just give it away if anyone wants it. Every car is different, so it's basically useless. Not to crap on your for sale thread or anything...

Re: Raising car knocks out geometry

It's 140. I also don't think jacking your car up is going to do anything to the strut bushings. Something else is up.

Re: TSP AFM Cam?

So it wont work in our cars? Youre the first guy to imply that The L77 does not have the necessary hardware for VVT. In addition to a VVT cam, it requires a specific oil pump, cam phaser, some electrical connections, timing cover, tune, and probably more stuff I don't even know about! Is it possibl...

Re: engine temps??

240 seems way too hot. I log data every time I drive my 2011, and coolant temps usually stay around 200 plus or minus 5 degrees. It hits about 210 occasionally, but that's usually in the hot summer with the AC on in stop and go traffic with high IATs.

Re: Slipping shifting into 3rd

Definitely add an extra half quart to start. It won't hurt a thing.
