      As I recall, Gary told me to use non-synthetic when I bought it. Don't remember the exact reason.

      Well, it's not in the car anymore, it started slipping after 6k miles. I mean it performed admirably, and they did a decent job. Not sure if that was because I opted to use my existing CM pressure...

      Didn't realize that kit came with the 044 already. But that's interesting because HPA told me in their testing that they saw a significant bump up in power (same boost level) when they just swapped...

      Decent numbers. Hard to say if you'll seem more power with the UM tune, maybe. I didn't do a before and after dyno run to find that out myself. But, UM recommends putting the 02 sensor in the DP, and...

      Yeah, and then there's that. Well, you see in this pic, my mechanic wants to put it near where the cone filter is and move the filter down.

      No. I guess I didn't even realize that existed. I thought they just sold those for the newer models. BTW, the delrin inserts were for the engine mounts not the dogbone mount, but essentially the same...

      The Spal fan on the aux radiator is doing a good job of cooling. Can't say for sure what amount of heat/ temp drop it has caused with the coolant since the aux rad was hooked up at the same time. But...

      A bit of an update. Car has been running great, albeit I have yet to hook up the hoses for the aux rad, lol. But I am getting that done next Monday for sure, just been lots of added expenses with...

      I have good ties with them true, but the software wasn't playing nicely with the cams I have. Jeff also had fine tuned my supercharger E85 setup back in 2011, so I already had plenty of experience...

      Yeah, I've had the opposite experience with the FX400. Brand new SMF and 8-puck disk went out at 6-7k miles. It's possible it happened after I saw a big power boost from changing out the fuel pump...

      Wasn't that a Clutch Masters stage 4 with a stock FW? I'm not sure those things can hold over 550TQ, seems like a lot for that clutch. I had a stage 4 and now have a Spec3+, no complaints, so far it...
