  1. I’ve run Porterfield R4-S and Stoptech 309 on my car. Both pads are formulated for every day street driving and some track use. I have Porsche/Brembo calipers so my pad options are a bit different than for the Volvo calipers, but the Stoptech pads are available to fit 302s: https://www.zeckhausen.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=27_3167_3175_3176&products_id=5232 Ferrodo DS2500 are also available. They’re a slightly higher performance option than the Stoptechs but as a result won’t be as happy on the street. https://www.zeckhausen.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=27_3167_3175_3177&products_id=7949
  2. Connects a fused relay accessory to the stock accessory connector without needing any splicing or cutting of the factory harness.
  3. I’m not quite sure yet, but probably not as much as will be possible. I’m curious to see what the range of adjustment will actually end up being.
  4. Turned an FCP warranty refund into a Powerflex order
  5. Looks awesome Corey, love the wheels/ride height combo.

    If by “bolt-on” you mean, does the transmission bolt up? Yes, it does. The mechanical side of it is pretty simple for a 99 R - the M66 transmission, angle gear, axles, and driveshaft all bolt right up. You’ll need a custom bracket to use the stock 99 R transmission mount. However, the harder part to handle will he getting a tune to fully convert the ECU to manual by removing the 4,000 RPM limiter and fixing the throttle mapping. Where are you located?
  7. Mike nailed it for LVP products, I was gonna say the same thing. You want to compare the thickness/depth of the wear layer to evaluate durability. I haven’t specified any snap together, but we use a lot of Shaw or Mannington/Amtico on my projects (multi-family residential/commercial)
  8. What kind of look (wood, tile, etc) are you going for? Laminate or LVT sound like good options from a performance standpoint (based on kids/dog) and ease of install. If you wanted real wood, an engineered wood product (basically hardwood on top of plywood) meets your price point. Is tile an option you’re considering? That’s generally the most durable option. An intriguing possibility is bamboo flooring. It’s really dense, more so than Brazilian hardwoods like Ipe, so it should hold up well to wear and stains. We had a seminar about it at work for exterior use recently but the same company (Moso) makes interior flooring as well. I’ve been meaning to do some more research into it but haven’t had time.
  9. Hutchinson (OES) hydraulic mount + OEM front mount Couple new vacuum check valves (PN 1275226, thanks @B Mac) and a whole bunch of black silicone vacuum line to replace all the vacuum lines in my engine bay. I still need to order a bunch of spring clamps, but I'm waiting to order those until I can measure the OD of each size silicone line. A SPDT relay, a few Weatherpack connectors, some spools of wire, and Weatherpack crimper & pin removal tool. Plus a couple of these stupid fuel line/fuel rail connectors and o-rings, a new bushing and bearing for my VC, and rear wheel bearing snap rings from Tasca What kind of laminate did you buy? I'm not in flooring, but I have some experience with different products from work (Architect)
  10. @Tightmopedman9 can you elaborate on the DW300 idle pressure issues? What car, what fuel pressure, etc? I was gonna run a DW300 in my 00 R, but don't want to cause problems for myself.
  11. Awesome work so far Matt, just got caught up on a bunch of videos and have a couple more to go. Really enjoying seeing apply some serious engineering to this old AWD system - I’m excited to see where you take it when you get out on the track!
  12. What do you typically use the display for Greg? We don’t do much video so I wasn’t too concerned about that when selecting the TV for our conference room. This was a “low cost/proof of concept” option for us before a more significant office renovation in a couple years from now. We had a projector that we got tired of dealing with finding the right adapter/connection for whichever device someone was using. Now the TV is set up to have wireless connections for any and all devices so life is good.
  13. A cold one 😂 Me too, but I don’t love how everyone immediately forgets how to drive once the first snow flake falls.
