    Talking What Broke On Your 3/S/GTO This Week?

    You guys may have seen this on the 3SI Site, I am hoping it will be a popular one here too.

    Simply tell what broke, how you're going to fix it, and what you have planned for the fixup process.

    Pictures are a bonus!

    My parking/tail & dash lights quit working earlier this year after being detoured into some deep water. However, my blinkers still worked, until a couple days ago.

    Only fix I can see is to rip open the main wire harness in the engine bay as I've already checked both fuse panels, relays and fixtures. I am not looking forward to it at all.

    I'm hearing all sorts of bad things about those, are they really shitty, or did you just get a bad one?

    My clutch decided to puke all of it's springs out last month. Just dropped the trans and replaced everything this past weekend, but now, when I put the shifter in 1st, the tranny decides to go in 3rd FML! The good thing is that I think I know what the problem is, I just need to take the time to double check it.

    Worked fine for me then all of the sudden with my new set up, it wouldn't let me boost passed 8 psi. Took it off and ran open to test wastegates and that worked put it on and can only run 8 again...
