    ** SOLD ** Complete intake kit as described in: Induction System Modification The only difference is that I opted for a little shorter of filters due to fitment issues (I actually had the longer ones, but didn't like how they fit, so I exchanged them for the shorter ones). The whole thing...

    Vette Z06 Brakes Installed - PHOTOS

    So the past month or so, I've been collecting parts to do a Z06 brake upgrade... my hunch was that it would be a direct bolt-on upgrade and it was... I purchased the following: Z06 Caliper Set - 6-piston front, 4-piston rear (p/n 19121788, 19121789, 19121802, 19121803) DBA 4000 Series 6x6...

    E3 Spark Plugs Installed

    After watching some dyno #'s from HorsePower TV... I decided to do some research and found this article: http://www.powerblocktv.com/redirects/dbredirects/redirect.php?id=537 I'm not entirely certain it makes much of a performance difference, but their emissions tests seem to be sound - so at...

    Oil Pressure

    When my 06 XLR-V idles... the oil pressure gauge reads 40 (about the middle). When I rev the engine at 3k rpm or so and hold it, the gauge reads about 80. (almost pegged). Does everyone else's do the same thing? Or is this just what my V does?

    Headers & Cats installed

    After buying the D3 headers & cats last spring, I finally got them installed... Initially I thought I'd take them to a shop to get installed, but I decided to tackle them myself. It was a huge pain! :) I got one side in over a weekend, and it took a couple of trips to the store to get the...

    Steering column lock?

    I have a question... does your XLR have a steering column lock? In that, once the car is turned off, can you turn the wheel? I tried turning the wheel on my parked and turned-off 06 XLR-V, and found that I can actually turn the wheel. When I dug through the service manuals, it says that the...

    New tires for XLR-V

    Now that I've hit 16k miles, it looks like I need new tires on my V. Here's what I'd like: I'm only interested in run-flat tires... I've had three flats in 16k miles, and every one of those flats I got in a city away from home. I'd like wider rear tires than 255 - after the performance...
