Didn't check the mounts--this car only has 15,000 miles on it, so I didn't bother.How were the mounts??
so 2011 key fob, ehhh? i love the idea, whats the plan because i was under the impression we were stuck with this generic piece of GM crap
I haven't been able to get a straight answer on the key fob, so I bought one and I'm going to bring it into a dealership to see if they can get it to work. If GM changed the frequency, then it won't--but I'll only be out $25.
Hopefully I'll be able to fix that once I have time to help out on the FAQ.Three hours to get the dipstick tube back in is about average. Took me nearly that, but it seemed like eight hours. Some guys seem to do it in about 10 minutes while others have to get their car towed and have a shop do it. The instructions in the FAQ were done by Rick (StealthV), and I already gave him heck about neglecting this little anxiety-producing step.
You forgot to report one very important thing! How does it sound?!!
Frankly, I think the car sounds like crap now. The exhaust note is worse, in my opinion, but you can listen for yourself (see the second video). I'm getting a lot of high-pitched squeaking (appears to be originating from the header outlet flanges) that reminds me of shot-to-hell Ford Explorers. Not sure if that's because cat delete (nothing happened when I gutted the mufflers two weeks ago), or because the timing is off, but it's driving me nuts. In any event, I'll re-evaluate once I get it tuned. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears.
Note that it's about 95% humid outside right now, so the second video features a lot of visible exhaust.
