I'm just glad I was able to get them installed correctly. Just another thing I now know how to do if I ever need/want to again. It's actually not that hard with the proper set of tools. I'm guessing...

I use a heavily diluted mixture of castrol superclean. I think like 20:1 or something like that, it has it on the bottle. Spray it down, let it sit for a few minutes, rinse and repeat until all the...

Ordered another set of gears, 3.73's this time. I really wasn't fond of running 2k RPM at 60mph. I think 3.73's will be a better fit for me. Got the FRPP install kit along with it so now I have a lot...

There's nothing to turn off, it's just a scoop with 3" ducting that goes to a mount point that you install in place of your brake dust shield. Water doesn't matter.

I dunno then, it's not loud, the exhaust almost drowns out the whine. Backlash was set to 0.010" and the contact patch looked good.

Twin disc, more surface area so you don't need as much compression of the disc to keep from slipping. Twice the grip, twice the price.

Yeah, probably. But I've had these thing for about 4 years now and haven't installed them. And while this car is used for track days/autocross it's also a weekend street car.
