      I'm in the same boat. People are saying go with the FX850, but I am also leaning towards the HPA Spec3+. Or, like your idea, I get another FX400 and get my flywheel resurfaced.

      I wouldn't read too much into it. He probably just meant it "looks" fat.

      And so is the one listed on that page I linked. But I thought Darryl had told me at some point that the stg3+ was good for no more than like 470+ or somewhere in that territory.

      Yes, it will rub in stock form. I had to bend the hard line, and it barely clears.

      I am completely convinced now that the vapor smell is strictly from heat and tank expansion, and possibly fuel boiling. Putting around town there's really no smell. It's only once I go on extended...

      I suspect you're on to something, because I can tell I know my car runs rich. And I only start to notice the vapor smell after a decent amount of driving. It's not very noticeable just cruising...

      Ya, I've got one and love how it's push-down for reverse vs. that pull-up lever thing; that just didn't work for me. Good luck finding a seller, sucks they discontinued it.

      Seemed like mixed reviews. All I know is I'm looking for a better cooling solution to battle my car's extra heat from the turbo here in Hawaii. It's been limping far too often, hard to drive at times.

      Is this radiator discontinued for the MKIV R32? ECS Tuning only carries the MKV 08' one.
