    I run the 20W-50 Amsoil in everything here, with the acception being the LS1 camaro and the 5.0 mustang, which get the 10w-40 variety of the same brand. However since the cold temp (pour rating) is only 7 degrees difference between the two, I am thinking of stepping up to the 20W-50 for everything and make life easier when it comes oil change time.

    Looks good, Alex. Got the car started finally at the beginning of May. Sounded horrible. A lot of noise coming from under the hood. Sounded like a metal clanking. I let the car run for a little while, but the sound continued so I shut it down as I didn't have time to mess with it. I put new oil in the head unit of the Procharger and changed the oil in the motor in October right before I parked it for the winter. Thought maybe the noise was from the valve train being dry. Started it again a few weeks later and it sounded even worse. Finally had time to look at it at the beginning of June and the noise ended up being a loose tensioner pulley on the blower. The head of the bolt holding the pulley on was hitting another pulley to the serpentine belt. Tightened it up and she has been running awesome all summer since. Had her out about 12-15x over the last few months.

    You are gonna love that thing. I'd recommend a watts link to anyone over a panhard bar any day. I noticed a difference in the car rolling out of the driveway.

    Do you know the price difference between the two? I've never compared them but I'm assuming the link would be more expensive by a pretty good amount.

    The Fays2 up above runs about 700 plus shipping so it's about 5-600 more over a quality panhard bar. BMR also just released their version that's around 650.
    Really changes the driving characteristics, i'd have a tough time buying one outright but got a deal on mine and couldn't pass it up. If i ever bought another fbody i'd be on the lookout for setup like it.

    Did a paint correction on my dad's Z28 over the weekend. Spent roughly 15 hours dive or take on it. Put on one of the new paint coatings on this one. Full documentation can be seen here.

    Replaced all of the exterior bulbs to LED's on my 02 SS. I am using Diode Dynamics XP80 LED's which are their brightest bulbs for the 3x57 bulbs. The small 194/168's have been replaced with the HP5 LED's from them as well.

    Brake lights



    Turn signal



    Front corners





    Reverse. Halogen bulbs on the left and LED's on the right



    All of these bulbs are much brighter than halogen bulbs. They also give a truer color. The instant on feature of the LED's are great as well.

    Polished and coated the wheels of my 2002 Camaro SS.

    The Rupes nano came in handy polishing out the spokes of these wheels.




    Outside and inside of the wheels were polished and coated with GTechniq C5 Wheel Armour



    Because I am crazy like that I polished out the chrome lug nuts and coated them as well. These are just the rear. Did the fronts the day before.



    Products used.

    My father is a huge LED fan and has sort of gotten me to play around with them. I use them in a couple cars for the back up lights. I installed them in the running lights of my duramax mainly to keep the heat to a minimum. I also use them as dome lights in the old cars, to keep the heat down so it doesn't cook the dome housings.

    I tried them in a couple of tail lights but they seemed to be hit or miss for me. My wife didn't like them in the tail lights of her 69 Z because it made the new lenses look more orange than red, but the turn signals blinked fine.
    I then tried them in the tail lights of my firebird but apparently the flasher I'm using in that car didn't like them, because the turn signals wouldn't blink. Rather than crawl under the dash and try a different flasher I just put the regular tail light bulbs back in.
    My father put LED's in the tail lights of his 69 GTO and the signals blink fine in that one.
    He also has them all over the inside of his new truck, all the domes, map lights, dash etc... When you open the door in that thing it's blinding to me. I have to close my eyes
