    Just curious

    Is there any reason to keep the original parts from my car or should I let the performance shop have them? I have a new tranny, cam, exhaust, injectors, and fuel pump being installed in two weeks.

    My car has approximately 29k miles on it.

    Keep them in case you ever want to put car back to stock for resale purposes.

    You could also ebay them, but I would not let the shop keep them.

    Thanks, do you think that someone would want to buy stock parts?

    I've waited to long to get my Camaro so I doubt if I'll ever want to sale the car.

    Yes somebody might, keep em in the attic or ebay em. Never let the shop keep your stuff, they will just make the money on em that you could have.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    I've kept all of the stock items off of my 02 for 2 reasons:

    1.You never know as you may want to sell it (EVERYTHING is for sale for the right price)

    and

    2. The government might crack the whip on pollution control devices and installation/workability of same.

    you have an 02 so if you ever decide to put lots of money into the car there is always someone who is looking for a replacement for a broken piece or even your ls6 intake could be sold if you ever want to upgrade. alot of intakes are going for like 300 used in the parts for sale section

    Good point on the pollution control, I still have to pass the environmental check here, but they could get serious and start popping hoods... We just have a plug in pcm check they run on em now.

    Same here. Plug in (OBDII), no codes, test the fuel cap and you're on your way. Here in Phx they are supposed to check (some do - you just gotta know where to go as it's state testing) but most don't. OBDI and older it's a full on inspection, dyno at 25 & 40 mph and all. This is only in Maricopa county and a few parts adjoining. Worst thing here isn't car pollution it's the damn dust storms.

    Like I said, I've kept everything just in case.

    So if the government was to crack down on pollution control devices and etc, are you saying that I would have to put the original stuff back on the car?

    Yes. Flat out - Yes.

    IIRC, in Cali if they catch you street racing or pull you over for a violation (speeding, ect) and they find you have non-CARB (California Air Resources Board) approved items on the car they take the car away.

    AFAIK, this only applies to cars registered in that state.

    Pretty crappy, huh?
