      The intake being the issue is no surprise. There have been cases before where the MAF is too sensitive to air velocity or volume to play nice with an intake. Have you contacted Uni to see what they...

      Don't waste your money on a spacer. the noise it makes is not good, it will leak oil all over the place and some have even reported reduced power.

      Good read, but whether or not it is 'warped' or has runout issues, if it can't be machined, it has to be replaced. In the end the goal is to eliminate the pulsation, whatever the cause.

      while i fully respect that some here have had a hell of a time with the stalling, most have it only in the off seasons when using winter gas. I am in no rush.

      There was a post a while ago where someone said the y cable was not available separately and therefore there was no part number. There was also another post where someone had mapped it out so you can...

      If the rust is too deep, they can't be machined because the pits will eat the cutters on the lathe. And then the cost to you for new cutters will exceed the cost of a new rotor. This is how we charge...

      Recommended by the guy at Napa because they were in stock and a higher price. And with the poor quality like you describe, how can you believe the Amazon reviews.

      Before you lose sleep finding where they drain, you should look at the connection points at the sunroof. The biggest failure is in the glue used to connect the tubes to the sunroof drip tray. I don't...

      I had to look it up and I am glad I did, the page in the shop manual with the instruction has a date of 2011, and it looks like it was revised to now show a non rotating compression tool. You must...

      Keep in mind the rotor surface has worn to match the pad. If you just replace the pads, you will not get good braking until the new pads have worn to match the rotor surface. Also keep in mind that...

      The extra HP and TQ are worth it regardless of the transmission. Most of us here have seen a 10% improvement on fuel consumption, if you don't have a heave foot.

      The dealer was DEAD WRONG. You can't replace one tire if it has some good wear. You can do two with no problem. Front and rear axles can be off a bit, but not side to side. The small amount of slip...

      According to my poster on the wall the WIX filter has Bioshield(R) 75 which is a biostatic surface protectant. Gotta love the marketing, but if it keeps bacteria at bay, that is a good thing.
