    LS1 Oil Cap

    My oil cap is a pain in the ass to get off, seems like it has swelled up. Anyone have this issue? I thought i was gonna break the extension tube tryin to get it off the last time.

    So I was lookin around ebay and found these aftermarket ones:

    Pretty cool. If they're good quality, it would be an easy fix and dress up the engine bay a bit. They have em for all our ls1 cars; birds,maros,vettes, and gtos. Anybody have one?

    I got a chrome breather..
    I keep forgetting the ratio on chrome to HP..
    every 5 dollars in chrome is like 9.6hp. or is it 3.6 or 2.9?

    I considered getting that a while back but ended up not getting it. Fairly nice looking IMO.

    I have one and I bought one for my husbands GTO. They look really great on the cars.......The only complaint I have is that they are very HOT to touch after you have been running the car for a while.
