    Ditto to THAT ! I have gotten SO many more "Cool car, Bro" and "Cool car, Mister" cries out than I ever imagined. My blue 30th Ann Ed. T/Am wheels help ... one guy who I thought was going to give me a parking ticket offered to buy my wheels on the spot !

They're talking about more snow Tues /Wed. GRRRR!
    My car was garaged just before the first salt hit the roads and will not return until sometime in April when rain has cleaned them up. I'm so ready for spring and our winter has been pretty mild.

Would it have helped if I pressed the TCS Traction Control Switch off? I didn't think of till later --- AFTER I had put 2 logs behind tires as an overnight chuck !!! --- but then I realized maybe the manual said something about this?

    Don't we have limited slip diffs in a '99 Trans-Am 6-speed WS6 ?

    Anyway, what do I do in snowy driveway slope: leave TCS as is, or turn off? I confused.
    Here it is You Ready! Park it until Spring and drive the Subaru. Lol

    Love the story fws98ws6tt !!! I have done something similar to that before. Though I was all alone and laid a nice 2 stripe patch several hundred feet long. As the smoke cleared I saw some kids on bikes and skateboarding clapping and cheering! ! 🙌👍👏👏👏👍👍 I just gave them a 👍 and drove off like a normal person. Lol

    Traced it all the way back (the wrong way !) from where I though problem was under Pass Seat, but all hoses in tact and attached. Traced it down from Driver seat to below seat and up and over seat-frame rail, and finally found it was just unplugged from connector harness coming out of floorboard under seat. TOO COLD to try and wiggle it back on, but I'm hopeful I will have lumbar/lateral racing driver seat this week ! :-) p.s. just to be sure: it's one set of hoses coming down from seat into a 2-prong FEMALE connector, and that clips onto the 2-prong connector from floor harness, right? No missing extension length of hose? I hope.

Pass. side inflates like factory-new, driver side is caput, no work for either lumbar/lateral but can hear pump motor whizzing. Is there a good LS1.com Forum link you can direct me to? Thanks Gents n Ladies.

    I had the rumbler catback when I first got my 1-7/8 TSP headers but didn't care for the rasp. I swapped over to the TSP true duals less than a year later and couldn't be happier.

    I'm hoping the catted-Y will take the rasp! I may stay with the LM! If it's too much/too loud, I may got to a muffled system with a cutout!

    Thanks for chiming in!

    I'm looking for the old muscle car sound!

    I don't think it will. I believe all Y systems have rasp to some degree. The true duals aren't quiet for sure. Here is a quick video of mine from a couple years ago.

    I think the cats help for sure I had some rasp with resonators until I went with the LS6 intake and removed all the egr stuff and air pump what that had to do with it I don't know but it is gone!!!! I have a Magna Flow cat back on it and it really has IMO a true old school sound.

    Cool!

    I am planning on EGR/AIR removal! The LM is on the car now! I've been doing a lot of reading on exhaust lately! American Racing headers with catted-Y is on the way! Trying to decide between TSP's Rumbler, staying with the LM(I have to "find" a whistle/whine in it), or the Borla adjustable SS cat-back!

    I'll have to see what the wallet says! (Burned a bit of cash on my Tacoma lately!)

    Finally had a chance to get the old girl out and have a drive!!

    Must be since October i have been able to manage that, but......
    the darn check engine light came on very shortly into the drive

    I have been starting the car up and running it up to temp a few times
    in the period between then and now and it never occurred then, so.... what gives?

    I have done absolutely nothing to the car to change anything. Alas, like you guys
    i have zero chance of finding a code reader locally so i have no idea what code or
    codes have reared their head?! There is a tuning place about 40 miles away but that
    will have to wait 'til the better weather.

    The car is running fine so i am not unduly worried and i suspect it will be a cat related
    glitch?

    Any thoughts, anyone???

    I keep an Innova 3130 in my car for checking codes. You can find them online all over, I believe I picked mine up from amazon several years ago. There just isn't really any way to tell until you check it, could be any number of things.
