The AC condenser will separate from the radiator. The AC lines have enough slack in then to allow the condenser to stay in the engine bay. Just zip tie the condenser as far forward as you can without getting too tight, the cam will fit this way.

I had to change my UD pulley due to the factory wobble. I spent a good hour trying with two of us to get this out but there was no way i could. Maybe you had better luck than me! i am doing the Cam swap when the parts arrive so i will try again and see if it will work.

pretty easy to recharge your AC yourself so i woud suggest save the busted knucles and discharge it. Made life way easier.

Default DIY Sub Box Dimensions

If you want to make a sub box and/or amp rack that sits on the ledge behind the seats. Something like this or this, you'll need the dimensions of the hatch area.



The front edge of a stowed roof in a coupe will be 9" behind the shelf lip, at a height of 9" above the carpet.

Default The C6 Ultimate DIY Thread is missing............

There was a DIY ZO6 cam install thread, the link was broken and then it was deleted completely. Anybody know where there's a good one to be had? Looks like I'll be posting one here in the next 4-5 weeks but in the mean time I'd like to see one from somebody else. Almost all tips are good tips, almost.
