No, we still plan on staying at your place Thurs night. Then to Badlands in the am.


Exhaust was an absolute nightmare.....after all the research on mufflers I ended up not using the Spintechs. There was so little room under there that they ended up having to do a 2 into 1 , single out on the passenger side. They ran a few ideas by me for the duals but this ended up to be the best option. Really....just glad it's done. Kevin will be putting the exhaust sensors in tonite and see how she sounds, runs and shifts. Hopefully all will be good and he will have time to build the bumpstops up a bit for me.

Heading that way straight from a funeral in Roseville, picking up the jeep at Kevins around 9, to Ronnies around 10. Wish the timing was better.

On the hunt for the correct O2 sensors now. So it continues..............



Seems they make 3 different 02 sensors for this motor.....1 more run to the parts store for this and a deeper radiator cap for Kevin and hopefully all will be set. Keep your fingers crossed people!

No room on the passengers side right? Did they end up using a SS muffler, I like mine. It is quieter than planned but, I like it now. How/where did they cross the drivers side over? We had to go in front of the oil pan sump on mine.

Nothing special, running the stock pan for now, will see how the pressure is this weekend, if it's an issue I will upgrade.

FYI, look at our Moab trip. I never lost oil pressure on any of those inclines using my stock corvette pan. And quite frankly, I don't want to get any steeper.

You will note in one of the early pics I stated that I found the point where I lost oil pressure. Come to find out, I was a pint low.

Do you know which vette pan you have, Jim? Its the C6 LS2 pan? Not a C5 batwing....

I think I will use that also.
