      I laughed at the irony of the Vortex name and the detailed review.

      Anyhoo.

      I have a Borla and love it. When new, it droned when lugging the motor, 2-2.5k RPM. Still does.

      I noted on the...

      I forgot that if I ever knew it.....

      I think I bought black replacements largely for cosmetic reasons. And to get rid of the Delrins.

      I'm guessing something in the shift interlock mechanism is going flaky on you. You know, the thing that senses the shifter position and interacts with the other electronics to force you to step on...

      Bumping because I was curious.

      I was at Thunderhill (700 miles from home) a few years back and another Seattle area track rat blew his motor. He ended up hiring a U-haul with a tow dolley and...

      Single digits on track days. And yes, that can be an entire tank of fuel. Good times.

      After replacing the cap, I still got leaks at operating temps.

      Turned out the coolant bottle was cracked at the top inboard nipple (not sure what that small hose does); I could see it bubbling. ...

      Do you feel lucky?

      I woke up this morning wondering if I had "Joy" by Apollo 100.

      I do. Seriously old.

      Thanks, food for thought. I figure we've bought our last stick; when somebody has a tweaked knee or back they don't want a stick. We're both healthy now, but what does the next 7 years hold?

      It's a PITA. Drilling, in multi stages with a fair degree of precision on complex curves.
