Re: New owner from Georgia, hello!

just a couple, for now....no regular events just for PPV. Given our proximity to ATL, the Caffeine & Octane monthly events usually have a good G8 turnout. Annually (and again for 2020) the G8 (now Holden) Extravaganza is held in the spring in Valdosta. Other than that, it's sort of hit-or-miss here ...

Re: Holden WM maplight & harness

G8 would also be a source--in either case, the front map light will be fine to fit to PPV, for anything at the rear, some extension of the wiring would be needed--not a big deal. The only difference is that most if not all G8's were black, where SS is a "close" match to PPV, which 11-13 (WM) was "li...

Re: Holden WM maplight & harness

My recollection, without reading previous comments, is that the harness that is typically part of the headliner (in other words may not be a service part) is the key to making everything easier.

Re: New owner from Georgia, hello!

which would at least partially explain why the car (I saw a white PPV) is still sitting there. Don't go that way often and didn't stop to look, no idea if there were more, just happened to notice one at the place just east of the Pilgrim Pride chicken processing plant.

Re: New Tires - What Air Pressure to Run?

my only purpose was to clarify that IF the TPMS settings are lowered, it eliminates potential nuisance alarms if running lower pressures than the door sticker recommendations. I felt comfortable and justified in changing the settings, knowing the Owner's Manual (2011) addresses the lower pressure se...

Re: New PPV 2014 Wheel Tire size ? Brembo Question

It just depends on what wheels you are going to be using....I don't know that you have made it clear what you plan to use, OEM or aftermarket wheels?

Re: New PPV 2014 Wheel Tire size ? Brembo Question

all depends on the wheel you are going to use....if you use a wheel wider than 9", 255 is too narrow for the bead width.

if you were running 20 x 8" Camaro fronts all around, yes, no issues. But rarely does anyone do that.

Re: New PPV 2014 Wheel Tire size ? Brembo Question

Brakes, yes, they'll bolt on--the other issue is the wheel choice. OEM wheels for Camaro are a mixed bag--they fit, however the Gen5 10-15 rear 20's will have rub, depending on tire size, springs/ride height, and load. Gen6 OEM wheels, even though they are being used by a number of PPV owners, have ...

Re: New PPV 2014 Wheel Tire size ? Brembo Question

Need to be more specific--which Brembo (345 or 355 at front), and which end of the car? Otherwise, no issue fitting Brembos--still have to consider wheel choice. Since clearing spring is mentioned, I'll assume front. With 10-15 Camaro 20" (20x8 +35 offset) a 255/35-20 tire SHOULD work. 10-15 Camaro ...
