      $4.79 for regular...? I am going to kiss the gas pump next time I go. Put regular in for $3.79 yesterday (in the fusion).

      Yep. Not a typo. It's beyond insane.

      Today I drove her, and loved every minute of it.

      So far so good. Stock stage II pipe replaced that torn Carbonio coupler and cracked pipe and the new PCV is on. Purrs like a kitten and puts down a lot of power again.

      Now that I'm getting full power again my clutch is slipping horribly. I'm tempted to do the clutch install myself since the quote I got was for $500 in labor. I've done headgaskets and suspension but never a clutch.

      Clutch install is simple as long as you have a helping hand

      Even for someone who hasn't done one? I need a DIY since there isn't a decent manual for this car

      Today I found a nice spot to mount a 12V power source for my Garmin. Then I drove it and - of course - it rained.

      What's SPM and how does it compare to the S3 or the APR IC?

      Smaller company. As far as the comparison... dont really know... APR makes very nice parts. I didnt want to spend $1000. I never looked into the S3 as an option. Www.drivespm.com.

      You have to have a first clutch install eventually right? Its no harder than a suspension, brake, etc. install. Its all nuts and bolts. There are a few DIYs out there that I had up on my computer when I did mine for a helping hand.

      And you will spend $500+ that could be put towards something more useful, like hookers and blow

      This.

      I returned my tinted so don't have any pics. To me, the tinted "stuck out" more. I didn't like the dark red combo of the lights and bright paint. I though I did. Which is why i purchased the tinted...but in person, nope.
      Bare with me, I'm still practicing computer.
