Looks like you are taking very good care of your ride. Welcome to the forum.

Your car has a LS1 in it correct? That's what you're working on? I know it means a lot to you so let's fix it right.

Not necessarily. Did you read what I wrote about the compressor I used? I included some very detailed information in that thread. You need to read it. I know the pictures are pretty and distracting but the info is important too.

The same thing, but I knew this guy so that was a very good price. Dealerships charge around $120 to do a evacuation and recovery.

Surely there is a Bumper to Bumper in your area. If not, you need to call Compressor Works and see if there is a distributor where you live. They can also tell you a source that will ship you one. If you can get the same deal I got with the warranty, you're way ahead of the ball. Step one, call Bumper to Bumper. I put all that information in that thread for a reason.

Great looking Z28! Welcome to DC! The Junkman will be a great asset in your work to improve it. Just don't take your eyes off your barbeque if he happens to be around.

Welcome! Great looking ride you have there. I'm a three-time Camaro owner myself to go along with the three Corvettes. Gotta say I had more fun putting 95k miles on my LS1 Camaro than any other car I have owned.

Hope you enjoy yourself here.

Well you better fix it right so that you can hand it down to YOUR son.

Go visit this page about top tier fuel. They have a list there.
