Re: Hello All and My Caprice makes a Noise

Welcome! Sorry, I'm zero help with the noise. Not exactly sure what was 'noise' and what was 'the noise'.

Re: G8 console swap~ need center support and shifter bezel

I have the console switch cubby, and it's a very nice piece. Didn't know he had branched out!

Re: AFM Disabler

It's just a Band-Aid. While it will prevent the engine from going into AFM mode, the weakness is the lifters that do so. It's probably a 'cheap' way to get AFM disabled without a tune, but the engine is still in risk of lifter failure until you change out the lifters.

Re: Why just fix the leak when you can eliminate the choke points?

<SNIP> The offending hole: IMG_5129.JPG Our '12 had that on the top of one of the rear mufflers where the seam is welded together. Another bad spot was the flex pipe at the front of each rear muffler mount. Had to cut a couple of the bolts there to drop the exhaust. Our car was a Wisonsin car, so i...

Re: 2.5 vs 2.25 diameter exhaust

AND if you're running stock cats, THE restriction is just before the front cat. It's like 1-11/16", or so there, so a 5" cat back is going to do nothing for you.

Re: Yet another endless build for me. This time on the Caprice.

Inspection time came up, and I had the opportunity to get the car out to at least get it inspected. Since I'm WFH, and we leave the car plugged in to a Battery Tender, we usually take the wife's Tahoe PPV when we need to go anywhere, and we're still gong out when we have to. The car has sat in the g...

Re: 2012 Caprice PPV will not start. No crank.

Found this on passenger side. Looks like bolt head broke off ground but I haven’t found it so it’s probably been that way since I got it. Battery was at like 1.7 volts so it’s out on a trickle charger now. I did ground that cable to the hold down and put a jump pack on it to see if some miracle hap...

Re: 2014 Caprice PPV - YouTube Project Car

Thanks for the vid. I hope to never have to pull ours, but it's nice to have this handy should I have to. I've been up under the headliner removing the plugs for the old antennas, but got what I needed done w/o pulling the headliner. It was close, though. Note that with the headiner in place, the wh...
