Metco Driveshaft Safety Loop :: 2010-2015 Camaro #MDL3100
- Fits all 2010-2015 Camaro SS/V6/1LE/ZL1 models
The ONLY driveshaft loop for the 2010-2013 Camaro that requires NO DRILLING for installation!
This bolt-on driveshaft safety loop is designed exclusively for the 2010 and newer Camaro SS equipped with either the six-speed or automatic transmission.
This driveshaft safety loop is an original Metco Motorsports design and no modifications to the vehicle are necessary for installation. The loop can be installed without having to remove the driveshaft and it is compatible with popular aftermarket exhaust systems.
The mounting brackets, support bracket, and hoop that comprise this kit are made from laser-cut high-grade steel, which is then precision-formed on a CNC press. The components are powdercoated in black for appearance and long-lasting surface protection.
The two mounting brackets attach securely to the transmission mount studs, and the loop support bracket mounts to these brackets at four points, adding great strength and vibration resistance. The loop is positioned in the driveshaft tunnel above the exhaust system, providing maximum clearance for all surrounding components. And unlike the competition, it is not necessary to drill holes in the car's transmission crossmember for installation. If it is ever necessary to remove our loop from the vehicle for selling purposes or warranty work, no one would ever know it was there.
The kit includes illustrated installation instructions and all necessary hardware. No special tools are required for installation.
Note 1: Since these photos were taken, this driveshaft loop kit has been revised slightly so that the bolts that secure the loop to the loop mounting bracket thread downward from inside the loop into the bracket (instead of up into the loop feet, as shown). This change was made to create additional clearance for aftermarket exhaust systems.
Note 2: The images above show the loop kit mounted to the OEM six-speed crossmember and transmission mount. These components are shown for illustrative purposes and will not be included in the kit. Installation for the automatic application differs minimally.
Note 3: A bracket is available as an option with the driveshaft loop kit. If you have installed an aftermarket driveshaft in your 2010 or newer Camaro SS, the front universal joint is moved rearward, away from the transmission tailshaft. As shipped, the Metco Motorsports MDL3100 Driveshaft Safety Loop kit is designed to fit the 5th Gen Camaro application equipped with an OEM-style driveshaft. Using our loop kit with an aftermarket shaft results in a hoop position that is nearly in-line with the front u-joint, which is not optimal. Adding this simple bracket extension to our loop kit moves the hoop rearward, positioning the hoop in the proper location behind the front u-joint.
Note 4: In some installations, the aluminum shield attached to the floor pan of the car requires minor trimming for loop clearance.
