    From the outside looking in, this looks like a colossal mess - and I'm really not sure why things are this complicated. I feel like there is a lot of simplification that can be done to the overall...

    Fixing it to a factory spec will get very pricey.

    I'd probably strip it down and just run the skeleton. Spend $2000 on headlights? Nah, I'd rather hang two giant turbos on it.

    This sounds like my car. If I hit a dip in the road or drop off a bridge (because TxDOT doesn't know how to make things flat, apparently), the rear end feels like it kicks out to the right.

    I'd like to think that they get them back, replace the bad parts (piston rings would be my guess), and sell them as "remanufactured".

    But I'm sure the reality is that some LEAN Six Sigma person...

    Looks great as-is, but I also don't think that a good vinyl stripe would destroy the look of the car - the beauty of vinyl is that if you don't like it, you can just pull it off.

    Do you have a...

    Welcome! Beautiful car. I've always loved the orange TA's. It was one of the first Gen V's I ever saw in person - at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2014.

    This was definitely a hard lesson learned for me early on. I'd check in and see that what I invested in was down 20% that day and I have a bit of an "oh shit" moment. Two days later and it's up 40%....

    Well damnit all. I've been using Coinbase for almost a year now... never saw or heard mention of a Pro option.

    Almost looks like a ton of my complaints about the basic version are addressed in...

    I should mention that the 3" coupler was used on a different car... I'm not 100% sure what size our TB's need. Just eyeballing, I'd guess 2.5" - I've never bothered to measure.

    Instead of a smoke machine, you can just pressurize the intake and listen for the leak.

    I built my boost leak tester with a 3" silicone coupler, a PVC end cap, and a valve stem. 5-10 psi is all...

    I would assume because of damn good launch control and blistering fast 0-60 times. Getting off the line and rolling is where you make your time on the drag strip.

    Interesting. If this was a repeatable issue, I wonder if it could be tested / "solved" during a track event by doing something simple like pulling the ABS fuse (I'm assuming this has one). I've done...

    Are you talking about the first start after installing the Cat? Or has this been going on for a while?

    If it's the first start after installation, you're very likely just seeing manufacturing oils...

    We've always stayed somewhere on the south side of Knoxville and just driven down in the morning.

    Nice work; I would be interested in one, as well.

    I've got the 3D printer for rapid prototyping, but don't have a way to actually make rugged parts yet. Would love to get a mill and/or lathe.

    Absolutely agree. And to go along with that, so many people go in groups - and while someone might be driving at 5/10's of their skill level, the person following is driving at 9/10's of their skill...

    Can confirm. :witless: Paid $20 earlier this year about two weeks after getting my Cobalt back on the road after 3 years of collecting dust in the garage, lol.

    Rear tires at the wear bars. Heater core is bypassed (assuming that means it needs changed?). Hopefully the harnesses can actually be run through the cutout in the seat.

    Thankfully the rotor held itself together otherwise and that it happened at low speed.
