Yeah, that one in the pic is nothing like what I've seen. We've weighed dirty filters before and some are 5lbs heavier than a stock replacement. 5lbs of dirt, that's a lot.

Also check with Roush and Shelby. Sometimes they have New Take Offs and they are pretty cheap!

Be methodical and do NOT get too frustrated. I've done the clutch in my F350 by myself 3 times and it is NOT a fun job.

Just sayin, on almost 100% highway driving tonight, after filling up and driving about 30 miles, I averaged 26mpgs, with 3.73s and a manual trans! 100% stock.

It's funny, because I used to replace them all of the time at work when I worked at an independent service center. Though, they were all on 09 and lower year cars. When I bought the car I asked if...

Another SanDiego Company to stay away from is ARD. They were once located in Chula Vista years ago. TOTAL waste of money and time. It took them 10 months to rebuild my 4 banger back in the day,...

I'm leaning more toward the fact that the grade of the road was sloped slightly to the right or other road condition. My '12 with nearly 50K miles stops perfectly straight every time, even after my...

It's funny how the 11-12's are rated at 412 and the 13-14's are rated at 420, but when actually dynoed, they make the same amount. I feel like the "420hp" rating is just marketing hype.

With 16K, I wouldn't even THINK about the brakes just yet. It's probably just a squeak from the piston/pad backing contact.

I just replaced my Brembo pads the past Wednesday, with just short of...

All four of the O2s are wideband. I had a failed O2 on my DS downstream and it would cough and sputter until I replaced it.

With both upstream and downstream O2's on and NO cats, they are reading...

W/ out the cats, the car thinks that there is something wrong. You HAVE to have a tune to turn the down stream O2 sensors off if you are running cat-less. I doubt someone at Bama or AM told you...

Are you running a tune on the car? If so, I would data log a lot and then send them to your tuner.

You obviously bought a car from someone that thrashed the car for the first 16K. My '12 has almost 50K on it and I'm still on the stock clutch and it's working fine.
