      Sounds like Ti-R and Volvokid are about to perform an "oil change" too, if that's what they call it these days... I just washed my car, love it when she shines

    12. #81
      Today I let her rest in the garage. Installed a new cabin air filter yesterday (old one looked disgusting...very disgusting...), but I think I installed it backwards or something- very little airflow. Did an oil change yesterday and threw in some SeaFoam into the crankcase one final time (did it 5k miles ago). New fuel filter goes on sometime soon, possibly next weekend. Winglets getting some work done on them next weekend. Boost gauge goes in next weekend (IPD R gauge).

      Added the iMIV today.
      What a PITA running the ipod cable from the back to the center console.
      Got it done, now to add some videos to the pod.
      Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to slide in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy ****, what a ride!"

      You aren't using both filter slots are you? If so take one filter out. My next question is what type of filter did you install? The larger charcoal unit or the smaller paper unit?

      Well with shipping cost to me from IPD I end up paying the exact same as buying it from the dealer, go figure, as for the quaker state, i dunno its full synth it will probably be fine for 5000kms

      I stared at the R for a good 10minutes while attempting to clean out my garage.

      yea i read that article recently and thats why i decided to lean away from the Syntec that I was using before. although I couldnt remember if Quaker State was a true synth or one of the half breed oils i figured i would try it.

      Correct.

      Looks great, Danny. The calipers look so much better when there not the OEM grey.

      I've thought about painting mine a yellow or a burnt orange with the Brembo logo instead of the R, but never really considered really going through with it. If it would look anywhere near as good as yours, I may have to re-think doing something like this.
      Did Adam do these for you?
