    The clip should be all that was holding it. So now it's corrosion or crud. Try tapping with a hammer, or a hammer and chisel.

    You have to shut down the security system in the ecu too. If you do that, you won't need any tricks with the ignition switch. You must buy tuning software or take the car (or ecu) to a tuner who...

    I did quite a bit of internet searching trying to find the correct pushrod to use with my hydroboost and master cylinder. Looked for either dimensions or a source/part number for one. Nothing...

    I made a socket for that big nut using a piece of square tubing.

    I think the color of the accumulator is an indicator of the internal piston size. Used to be a chart on the internet that said...

    First thing, a stock 55-57 has no ground connection to the frame. It does have a ground connection to the body.

    The stock 2002 Camaro has two 11" fans and the ecu and fan wiring gives you two speed operation.

    And all that is even easier with a 2 post lift which has much less in the way.

    To me it's a floor jack and stands or go all the way to a 2 post.

    A 2 post lift doesn't have a footprint under the car, but does require a wider bay. This thing...
