Re: July 2012 VOTM voting thread

Thanks guys for the votes so far, and I haven't done much to my Vibe in quite awhile. I bought a sound deadening kit so that will be my project this summer when I can make the time.

Best luck to my fellow nominees! :)

When the engine is warm and you rev it above 6000RPM it kicks into the second cam profile which gives you the extra punch you are experiencing.We call this effect 'lift'Because you have an 03 GT, it's possible it may develop a problem with the lift bolts.
