What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

Recommended Posts

Swapped thermostat without fubaring torx bolts (moved fuel line, 3/8ths T40 works fine), ran wires up the A pillar for radar detector mirror mount, 99 dome light leds & another because I really don't want to have to do this again. Cracked A pillar cover :angry: repaired with crazy glue & slice of guitar pick B) Cleaned steering column nylon bearing under the boot - no more squeaky! Killed another couple of squeaks in the back seat locks, failed to remove the O2 sensor again - it's welded into place, I swear.

Sat outside to drink beer today because the sunset was as good as CT ever gets.

how do you like the IPD HD Endlinks?

oh, and I continued to play with the MBC... adjusted it from 15 to 13... and noticed my VAC is now -2Hg lower

I like them fine - major improvement over the OEM which look like they were the originals. NB - I still have stock sways but I'd say they're worth the money.

If I'm counting right, your VAC is now -26Hg...

Dave that VDO gauge isn't accurate at all. When I had it in i was getting around 15 inches of HG when I swapped the prosport in im at 20 in of hg. I didnt do anything else. I went from kinda worried to happy as a pig in shit

Umm...Meyle? I hear they don't last so long. My commute today was interesting - it's like driving another car. Front suspension telling me it's happy, cornering is even more stable, though I'm feeling the understeer more as a result. They're built like a tank too, unlike the previous links. Worth the extra, sez I.

My VDO was from Danny.... I had it pressure tested and it was accurate.

Any time Dave's car makes a noise he gets worried. He's more anal than Grant.
