  1. Toggle switch that interrupts the signal to one of your front wheel speed sensors. You will lose ABS while engaged though
  2. easiest way to refill lol https://www.ebay.com/itm/8L90-8-Speed-Auto-Transmission-Dipstick-and-Tube-Assembly-fits-camaro/293193840918?hash=item4443b6f916:g:TK4AAOSwux5YUbzR
  3. This video will show you exactly what you need to do.
  4. Adding a drain plug is a good idea. I ordered a stock pan for about 35 dollars new on ebay, and had a plug welded in, that way i could swap it right in after pulling my old pan off and changing the filter. Contrary to what GM says, you can remove the pan with the exhaust in place, I used the bottle jack that came with the truck, and placed it in between the body and exhaust and cranked it by hand to bend the exhaust out of the way maybe 1/4 inch. To make things even easier I also ordered a dipstick tube and dipstick from a guy on ebay who makes them for 8 speed camaros. It fit my truck with a little bit of modification. Then I used the procedure you listed above to get the fluid level right. I only ended up using about 8 quarts.
  5. I've already installed a fill tube and dipstick, welded in a drain plug and exchanged 8 qts at 40k. Another 8 qts were exchanged at the dealer at 45k when they replaced the temp sensor Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Normally takes my 8l90 15-30 minutes depending on ambient temp to reach 180-185 when the thermostat opens and fluid starts circulating into the cooler, then it pretty much stays there. I know this is normal and how the system was designed, but would it be a bad idea to bypass the thermostat like many have done? Id like some answers from someone that actually knows about peak operating temp, and shift points/lockup. Cooler normally seems better but I dont want to do something i'll regret. For reference I only drive the truck April/May - October/November in Michigan (40 - 100 degree ambient temps)
  7. Dropped my truck off last night, they said as long as the tech does in fact diagnose the issue as the temp sensor/harness that it would be covered under power train warranty. They gave me a 19 (new body) 5.3 with an 8 speed. Assuming all the hard parts in the trans are the same, I think it's safe to say the stock trans tune/calibration is miles better than my 17 6.2 8 speed. Way less clunky and it shifts great/much faster under part and wide open throttle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Muffler delete sounds horrendous. Sorry, I was missing a period. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. No matter if two different tires are sold as the same exact size they wont always measure out the same. I dont think there would be enough difference to notice more people passing you though.
