About ETCG1

ETCG1 checker Logo Broken small 2018 copyI started the ETCG1 channel about a year or so after starting the EricTheCarGuy channel.  I did this for a couple of reasons.  The first is that I needed a place where I could post 'non-repair' videos that related to EricTheCarGuy, it became apparent early on that my audience on EricTheCarGuy were interested in repair videos only so to accommodate them and fill the need for video topics outside of repair ETCG1 was born.  The second reason is that it became apparent that many viewers had questions about becoming professional technicians and they wanted to learn what it was like to work in the field, they also seemed interested in my opinions and experiences that developed while working as a technician.  ETCG1 has become something of a 'soapbox' for me to share these thoughts and ideas and it gives me the opportunity to respond to some of the questions I get about the auto repair industry.  ETCG1 is also a place where you can learn a little more about what it is to be and work as EricTheCarGuy, best job in the world if you asked me.  Why not watch a few videos and let me know what YOU think?

Automatic to Manual Swaps

I get asked quite a bit about automatic to manual transmission swaps. Let’s face it, manual transmissions are more fun to drive. However, I think many people aren’t taking into consideration all of the time, money, and effort that would go into an automatic to manual swap. That’s why I made this video.

New California Exhaust Law

I try to pass along useful information on ETCG1. Lately there seems to be a lot of confusion about Californias new loud exhaust law AB1824. In this video I talk about the reality of the law and how it effects you if you’re driving in California with a questionably loud exhaust.
