      Good to hear. Like I mentioned previously, Aaron was one of the leaders in the M4.4 decoding and tuning process, so he knows what's what.

      When I contacted him, we discussed the AC routines for the...

      I've taken mine out through the trunk a couple times. Much less flexing of the headliner, even if you have to remove the trunk liner.

      Since I had donated my tires from my Columbas to my wife's Perfos, I needed to get the Neptunes swapped back onto my car, so I could drive it. (Also, no tires for the Eros wheels yet).

      I had to go out and look at what I bought. I picked up a "kit" from FCP for the swap and Textar pads were what was included. They seem to have a decent rep.

      You need to fix the PCV system.

      I haven't seen anything in that spot in any of the turbo motors I have here. If you plug it, you're going to wind up pushing oil out somewhere else.

      When I swapped dashes in my T5, I had to swap out the harness (the dash was from a '95). I re-wrapped my old harness in the fabric tape (that sticks to itself). That foam covering was gross.

      Yup. Kind of what you have to do. Done it a few times when swapping dashes.

      It's kind of like they knew that people would need to be swapping the dashes in these things. They're even PLASTIC rivets.

      One of the latches was hanging up on my T5 recently.

      Do you have a helper that could pull the release while you push/pull on the hood? Could just be sticky and need some assistance.
