    Aevus has a good exhaust thread going elsewhere on the site. He's using HF cats and large resonators IIRC. We need him to update us on results.

    For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to adjust my hood switch any higher. Without breaking it, I've tried everything. It has always had about 1/2" gap to the hood subframe.

    I usually remove mine as a complete unit including the steel adapters that bolt to the front of the frame horns. Two of the bolts are accessed thru the closeout panel ahead of the airbox. The...

    Frankly, I use OE Brembos on the front since I was gifted several sets. I wear out rears so infrequently that I just leave the PFC 90 medium torque, low wear pads on all the time. I have some new...

    I would recommend pushing about an 18-24" piece of 3/8" fuel line over the nipple and routing it away from the exhaust manifold and down - perhaps somewhat similar to mine shown below. If the cap...

    All factory or OE replacement 13". This is what my new front discs look like after 5 track sessions at Road America running Hawk pads. They still show the factory lathe cuts! I'm going to put them on...

    I did miss that vital info! Good on you for running it hard and being attentive to details. I think the cavernous wheel wells echo and amplify any sounds that emanate from the corners.

    I think there are a whole lot of bad mechanics taking clueless shots in the dark with these cars. Unless you are tracking them regularly, or putting tens of thousands of miles on bad roads, you...

    Well, this certainly doesn't rise to the seriousness of that time when 'some people did some things.' But the fact that history is repeating itself in uncanny fashion begets angst and distrust.

    At least it has both the frame recalls done properly. My dash has chalky spots on it and it's never had a single drop of protectant applied.
