  1. Limited Slip Axle Lubricant Additive

    Solstice GXP Discussion
    And thanks again. Guess I'll think about it all for a bit, do some research, and then probably just use the new Delco stuff and save what I just put in for the bikes.

    Excellent, thanks
  3. Limited Slip Axle Lubricant Additive

    Solstice GXP Discussion
    Mine absolutely took well over a quart. Looking around, I found a conversation on a Cadillac CTS forum where the newer 88862624 oil was being discussed. Seems at least two people had gotten what they called "chattering" after going to Amsoil or Royal Purple synthetic (can't remember which) and...

    Too late for me, but way cool and thanks for posting that. I'm guessing it's a high quality syn. gear oil like the Mobil1 except with the 4oz/qt. blended right in. I put the full quart in with 4oz bottle. Then topped it off to the bottom of the fill hole with the second bottle of gear oil. Your...

    Looking in the owner's manual for my '07 GXP type/capacities to see how much hypoid gear oil I'd need for the differential. Surprisingly, no guidance. I understand how to do it, level surface, yadda yadda, got 2 bikes with shaft drive and at least THEIR manuals list the dry capacity so you have...

    Cool, Takata has enough oopsie to pay for already :grin:
  8. Factory Lost Money on Coupes?

    Solstice Coupe Discussion
    My bad. I live where the AMC cars were made, and the "origin of the Gremlin" is just local humor. As I recall, AMC contracted a private company to do the crash tests. Probably save them enough money to buy LSD and tooling for the Pacer, in that order. ;)
  9. Wrist watch collectors / obsessions anyone?

    General Off Topic
    Watches are about the only real "guy jewelry" so yeah, it's easy to find you have more than you need. My first "good" watch was a self winding Seiko in 1974, since then I've gotten 3 more Seikos, I guess averaging a new one every 15 years isn't a mental illness. :) I had a mid level Rolex...
  10. Chinese water pump?

    Mods - Engine 2.4 l Ecotec
    Guess my answer would determinine on finding out who made the OEM pump (and where) and if I was happy enough with the OEM to WANT another one in my car. I was appalled add how crappy the OEM F150 brake rotors were. They looked flaky like parts of the Titanic. A little research told me they were...

    Well, I hope she learned her lesson >:)
  12. Factory Lost Money on Coupes?

    Solstice Coupe Discussion
    Agreed, and I'm sure the 2nd gen (if built) would have shared tons of parts with the original car, and many items would have been much simpler/faster to update than for doing the original design. Lets say they wanted to make the car 3" longer, and do it right in the middle for longer seat tracks...
  13. Factory Lost Money on Coupes?

    Makes sense, 100% believable IMHO. I worked for a company that was a supplier to GM and when a new body style was bid on we had to know the anticipated sales numbers and years of build. On a say, 5 year body style we could expect to lose money the first year and possibly most of the second...

    That really does look sharp. Doesn't scream out, "look at me, I'm different" but instead, looks killer & classy at the same time. I love mods that are subtle but excellent ☺
