  1. Lookin' to get a little more HP outta my GXP

    Solstice GXP Discussion
    Failed tact class and the remedial summer school class even got lost in the Tact for Dummies book, but did pass fundamental reading class ;) A high flow cat would be what I would buy if I was in your spot. Not sure what tire you are running but a better tire will help put a smile on your face...
  2. MagnaFlow Catback

    Mods - Engine 2.0 Turbo
    Frosti If you call the GM customer service line with your VIN they might be able to tell you if it was done or not too. It's in the service history most likely they should have access to it. Service writer should not charge you anything to tell you the service history of the car either. All...
  3. Lookin' to get a little more HP outta my GXP

    Solstice GXP Discussion
    Sort of a waste of $600 for the OP don't you think? Sure a dealer would take his money and send him out the door, wallet would be lighter so in theory car would be quicker.

    Do they do a sniffer test, also will set a rear O2 code so 2 reason for a failure. A high flow cat will not cause you issues. Just put the bung extender on and the rear O2 won't have a problem. Think you will enjoy the bump in performance.
  5. Coupe Collectability

    Solstice Coupe Discussion
    Buying a coupe setting it aside to sell in XX number of years at a profit is like walking into Ho House and expecting to find a virgin. Both could happen but most likely neither will. If someone offered me over $30,000 for mine with less than 2600 miles it would be packed up with all the stock...
  6. Newbie Help Please

    Solstice GXP Discussion
    Each state has different laws about titles, so that is a HUGE red flag to me if I were looking at that car. Depending on your insurance agent they may be able to look in their database to see if the history of the car. It's sort of in their interest, they don't want to insure a car that has...
  7. Newbie Help Please

    Solstice GXP Discussion
    Carfax reports are not worth the cost of the paper they are printed on, if the insurance company does not report it then it won't show up on the report. VERY few ever report anything. Only thing it might help catch is a total loss car title being washed by going state to state, the new state...
  8. LNF brake kit for solstice

    Mods - Handling / Chassis / Suspension / Brakes /
    No, leading edge is beveled and used the goo stuff on the backing plate. Also painted with el-cheapo Rust-Oleum paint that I applied with a brush so sort of thick. Hated the yellow color, got painted black, might help dampen the high freq sound of the pad touching the rotor at slow speed. At...
  9. LNF brake kit for solstice

    Mods - Handling / Chassis / Suspension / Brakes /
    I've got EBC Yellow pads front/rear and SS lines, best pedal feel setup of any of my cars, including Wilwoods on my Formula. Easy install, consider it one of the best bang for the buck mod's I've done.
  10. car over heating and need help

    General Tech, Solstice GXP Specific
    Driver side behind wheel well, in front of the firewall, big white plastic thing that is NOT on top of the brake master cylinder. Did you forget where it was at from a year ago when you posted about a coolant issue? http://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/search.php?searchid=4542829
  11. Need help deciding on a coupe.

    Solstice Coupe Discussion
    All C6 Z06 are LS7 powered. Here is a one of the better places to get a deal on a Vette: Kerbeck Corvette | Corvettes for Sale | Discounted 2012 Corvette Prices Your post sounded like fact not opinion. MSRP: Z06 1LZ is $75,600 up to 3LZ is $84,415, guess $24,000 to $15,000 off is sort of...
  12. Battery Light came on today, still on

    General Tech, Solstice GXP Specific
    How does it crank like normal? Maybe battery has a weak cell, the charging system is setting the light due to higher demand. If you turn the high beams on and hit the brakes any change in RPM? Take the drive belt off and spin it to see if it spins freely. Maybe data log voltage with...

    I doubt it, Wspohn is from Canada, sarcasm is illegal up there.
  15. 2007 Pontiac Solstice GXP LNF turbo upgrade over boost code

    Solstice GXP Discussion
    Someone might have messed with the wastegate linkage. I believe if it's out of adjustment it sets that code. Look at the jam nut to see if there is any witness marks on it. Stock setting is closed then 3 full turns in to preload it. If the wrong flash was in the car it would not run. Sure...

    Solstice Coupe Discussion
    Z06 never cost $100,000, you can get a new 427 Vert for $75,990. I do agree there are plenty of C6 out there that would be just as fun even more so at the edge as a V8 Solstice coupe. Don't think the coupe would be a fun daily driver.

    After you do the swap, what trans do you want to run with the LSx?

    I thought I had missed someone else running in the 12's, lots of should, could, would IF cars on here very few back up claims with facts.
  19. Need help deciding on a coupe.

    Solstice Coupe Discussion
    There is another coupe in the 12's? Not sure I've seen proof of a Vert running 12's. To the OP, why an auto if you are going to replace the trans anyway? With that another auto or manual? The stock trans was used by BMW behind diesels, doubt if you can hook up a Solstice enough with a V8...
  20. What's your opinion on this

    Solstice Coupe Discussion
    Bone stock LS1 5.6l 4th gen T56 I dyno'd 313, under the old SAE standard it was rated at 300, my LS2 6.0l A6 with headers, CAI and tune, 385rwhp on the same dyno was rated 400hp. I know GM went to the newer SAE standard for the LS7 then tested the LNF and all engines after that. So I doubt if...
