Haha I guess not. I love the vortex style thing, but I'd rather go around turns fast

Not sure. Just clean really. Could be the picture also.

HPA dogbone mount installed. I really like it a lot. What I though before was slop/jerkiness from the clutch was actually the POS BSH insert I had. Everything feels much tighter and I feel NO vibrations, even with the BFI motor/trans mounts. HS Tuning has these in stock!! By them!!



And here's a little video on how bad it sucks to try and launch with snows. But at least here's no wheel hop

Some things happened today!
Cleaned wheel wells and turned the coils back down. Fresh painted 710's go on Friday


Also picked up some maintenance supplies. Oil/filter. Updated timing tensioner/sealant/crank bolt. And four injector kits in case any of them come out when I take the intake off to clean the valves. Also have 3 bottles of rbf600 to flush my brake fluid. It's going to be a long Friday to say the least!

You are the second person to say this, but I am positive it's in all the way. Thanks!

You should send that picture to HPA and see what they say.

It works fine and it's fully up against the dogbone and the bolt is torqued to spec. It's just the picture.

Well I haven't updated this for a while.. First post is all updated with current mods. Since last time, I've completed and installed the brace I made for under the car. Also installed a Deka ETX16L lightweight battery and made a custom braket for that. Finally I ordered a Unibrace XB today. Only thing left for this year is an alignment and new tires!
