      You're right, I mixed up TorqueFactory with UM for some reason. Jeff Moss is a SoCal native and did all the tuning for Velocity before starting his own company.

      The pop you heard leads me to suspect there is a significant vacuum leak letting in unmetered air past the MAF. Backfires happen often when there is a big crack or hole in the intake boot...

      You will need to squeeze the fan part slightly to make it fit through, but a new fan's plastic is very pliable, so no worries about deforming it.

      Just to clarify, when you "pulled" the R134a, did you leave the system under a vacuum and then add ES134a? If so, that's the issue.

      ES-12 or ES134a works best when added to a system that is not...

      It may sound boring, but I used OEM Pagid pads. Great initial bite, more than enough heat dissipation that fade is not an issue even after 20 minutes of track driving.
