    Thank you for the block heater pics, its appreciated. FYI this is what I used on my daughters 2000 GTP, it fit perfect for that car. Price went up some since last year, it was under 50 bucks then.

    Default Re: 2005 CompG - Summertime Woes

    The car still needs a resonator, but that might be it for the summer. I'd really like to get at the rear suspension, still ..but I don't think there will be time/money.

    (**lots of swear words and ranting**)

    That sums it up. Might explain why I'm so pissy lately. I do apologize. Enough about that.

    Thanks.

    Default Re: 2005 CompG - WOT @ Stock; Just call me slowpoke! Lol

    Made a little vid yesterday while out for fun. There's a few out of the way areas nearby. I tapped the brakes once there at the end (pedestrian). Those R1's sure grab nice!

    Roads a lil bumpy, lol.



    (Edit: Got the video to embed.)

    Finally got tired of the boost gauge down in the storage bin. Noticed the vents were same size, so I put it in the chrome piece.







    (Yeah, yeah.. I know it's dirty. Lol)





    Also ordered a resonator. Went with the AP Enforcer, big one #403011S. I'll let ya know how that goes soon.

    Resonator arrived today, clamps yesterday. I knew it was a big muffler, but damn ..it's huge. Hopefully, don't take much to finagle it in there. Lol

    So, I'm finally coming back to this because I'm bored. Did you go turbo? I might just swap that GenV on and redo the one from my 05.

    I plan to head out to a pick and pull here in a couple weeks. Need a DIC button and a couple other things. I'll be looking for something to make a mount out of. Ideas are welcome.

    Maybe I'll find some GP treasures too, never know.

    Default Re: 2005 CompG - Boost gauge moved, Resonator ordered

    Ordered blue BA9S bulbs thinking I would swap out red on the boost gauge. Drove it after I ordered and realized I made a mistake.

    Too late to cancel - (and yes, the right bulb is crooked)



    At first I was like, moar blue things!



    Then I was like, Whoa.. stealth mode.



    Blue seems a little bad for the night vision, huh? Gonna leave it for now.

    Default Re: 2005 CompG - Photos under construction

    I fixed the resonator today.

    Waited for the flange. Got a couple bolts that matched up.



    Trimmed the ears, cut the flange shorter and still had to convince it to go in.





    The AP Enforcer 403011S is a near OEM fit. It was almost uncanny.







    Installed.



    Used red loctite, but may still put a nut on there.



    I thought about putting this in the "wrong" way. The flow direction changes in this particular pipe midway, so either end looks like this.



    The old one.



    It's mellowed out to just a little more rumble than stock. Tone might get a little richer with some wear, time will tell. My car also lost a noticeable amount of drone on the freeway. I'd recommend.

    I picked the resonator from a list I made here - http://www.grandprixforums.net/threa...91#post1470191

    All the pics are moved to google and should be viewable. Here's a couple from the Metallica show I found re-doing it.

    Saw Robert Trujillo before the show.





    Sat down to eat during the end of Sevenfold. We'd been there since like 4pm. The stadium's huge inside.



    Helluva show. Can't believe it's almost been a year already. - https://www.metallica.com/tour/18991

    Around 20k on these 104's. I went 605's this time (yes, they are not iridium). Old Grumpy seems less so.

    Random pic walking toward it yesterday.



    They don't look that terrible to me.





    Only gotta change 'em once a year, they said.
    It's not that bad, they said.



    I should try and be more careful. Lol

    That's all you got from changing plugs?

    I must be severely accident prone, cuz I'll get that just from checking the fluids. Lol

    Handling upgrades, go-slow parts, and an attitude.

    And this is why I still don't think these engines care about plug temp ranges anymore.

    After running 104's in a basically stock car; then tossing in 103's with ethanol...they always looked great.

    I changed the air filter after something like 15 thousand miles. The cone was the original that came with Best Car Part's intake (ebay).

    I chose Injen's X1021BB, which happens to be blue and also Made in USA. Says something about 100,000 durablility, but we'll see. (I didn't buy it here, but this is a detailed description - https://www.carid.com/injen/web-nano...x-1021-bb.html)



    Design that'll never be seen, lol.



    Actually sits pretty close to the headlight.



    I put some weatherstrip on the PCM connectors to protect it and the new filter. That bracket I made for the intake is a bit too long. Need to trim it up.



    Hmm, yes. (Stewie Griffin style)



    Inside of the pipe and filter. I'm actually keeping the filter in case of something unforeseen. It's just a dirt cheap filter from ebay. Did just fine.







    Alright then. Thanks

    Uploaded an exhaust video after the new resonator. Old Walkers got like 155k on em.



    It'll make the same snapping sound (1st rev) if I run it up to 28mph and cut throttle. Believe that's from the waste spark system, and I try not to do it often.

    Default Re: 2005 CompG - Grumpy Breathes the Clean Air (now w/AP exhaust vid)

    I dunno, see alot on fb of just the idle with no exhaust. Here's what mine sounds like with mufflers and all.



    It sounds nice if I gotta leave it running, imo.

    Tried to edit this into the above post. Only 1 vid per reply
