    While I understand it's one site and there are a lot of custom features and tweaks he's done, the overall layout, a "template" if you will, once figured out, could be used across 1 or 1,200 boards. Just adjust the colors as needed. That's the point that seems to be being missed here. This...

    So, as I continue my campaign against VS's canned crap layout, I have shared on several sites, how a Xenforo board gets done. Here is our local board that just went live last night after conversion... https://www.thechicagogarage.com/ Note how clean, easy, legible, and usable it is by way of...
  3. Solo exhaust with factory manifolds

    Exhaust Tech
    When I installed mine, I thought that the tips were closer to the diffuser than I liked (they weren't touching, I just didn't like the spacing), and I wanted each side a little more "even" along with adjusting the tips, so I bent the hanger on the pipe up a little bit (while on the ground, which...

    Lou's (G8Cruiser here) annual shindig at his place in Des Plaines is coming up this weekend. Usually 70 - 80 Holdens show up.
  5. Resonators: Keep or Cut?

    Exhaust Tech
    Installed it today. Overall Sooooooo much better... The sound isn't as "flat" in terms of tonal quality and has more throatiness to it. At WOT, it's almost quiet. So no worries about being earfuqed by a 13 second car... Not the greatest videos but at least a taste

    Message forum #6 I'm on with this disaster of a message board.

    That's great, but the user experience is what sucks! We're about to change on "The Chicago Garage" https://www.thechicagogarage.com/forum/ too, but the owner/operator has been watching this disaster of sites converted to VS's Xen layout unfold and has promised that this WON'T happen on our...

    So far, the list of boards I know of that have changed to this disaster of a layout; - Chrysler mini-van (also a member there) - Cadillac Forums - LS1GTO (sister site, I know) - Colorado fans - Dodge Charger forum All of these using Vertical Scopes new layout has been a visual nightmare and...

    Thanks for your input.
  10. Resonators: Keep or Cut?

    Well, I'll find out. :D It'll be the Wife test on the weekend. If I get a "WHAT DID YOU DO..." we know it's substantially louder. :D

  12. Resonators: Keep or Cut?

    Exhaust Tech
    Ok, I found a few that were decent quality. One actually had all stock except solo-axlebacks and then removed the muffler and did the x-pipe. Not so much "louder", but changes the tone, which is what I want. With that said, I just ordered a Jones SXP-3 (2.25" ID) X-Pipe from Summit. Was...

    Do you have that specific clip available? My issue with any sound clip is trying to sort out the quality of the clip itself before basing judgement.

    MF 12468 is 2.5" I thought our exhaust plumbing in that area is 2.25"
  15. G8's & Car shows

    Lounge
    This is last years show (You'll have to excuse the mix of GTO's in there too, it seems our group has a terrible ability to organize our parking efforts to group cars or even colors together). Pretty much the first two rows of the huge lot were GTO's and G8's. G8's and SS's have completely...
  16. How far off is speedo with Camaro 20s?

    I understand that (the ride).
  17. Resonators: Keep or Cut?

    Exhaust Tech
    I'm kinda in this boat too. It wasn't about "doing it right" from the get go, it was that this car is a DD that the wife has to be able to ride in, not be annoyed by a loud exhaust and spending a lot on exhaust wasn't in the game plan. I already have "LOUD" covered with the GTO and 3/4 LOUD...
  18. Starter Problems or Problems Elsewhere?

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Yes, that is where I'm at. Almost like the old school way of tapping the starter housing that jars the armature loose again. I have a lift that I would be doing it on. So it'll be easy peasy for me.

    The annual "Indian Uprising" event run by the Cruising Tigers, which is always held at Pheasant Run here in St.Charles, IL is coming up in a few weeks and I'm sure that there will be quite a few G8's there. Last year, the new GTO's and G8's were one of the showcase vehicles and we had an entire...

    Bumping this as I experienced this this past spring when it was dank and wet out. But in the 100% humidity and 100* dewpoints we've been having, it acted up again, even if I started it, moved it, shut off and then restart 5 minutes later, it'd do it again. It's almost as of the solenoid to...
