Try to find an exhaust system from a wrecked ZHP. It's a direct fit and sounds sweet. It's really my favorite aspect of my car. Not loud but music to my ears.

Since you are in Calif, you need to consider smog inspections. The catch can setup probably won't pass the visual.

No need to go into panic mode just yet. Check the coolant level in the expansion tank when cold. If it's good then it's only a faulty coolant sensor.

That's same as the difference between Dex6 and Dex3 type fluids (ie. Redline D4). You can run Dex6 in the GMs and the shifts are smooth but you don't get the "traction" that the Dex3 type has.

Since the original fluids are no longer available it's good to discuss potential replacements.

I don't think the Mercon will make the tranny fail but it might cause perfromance issues.
