While I'm here and I need coolant for the rediator swap, i got a gallon of this:

352658


50/50 mix is $15 and the concrete is $19.

I asked the parts manager for a discount, i got it for $17.

I just need to buy distilled (not the ones with minerals for taste) to get 2 gallons out of it.

Cannot find the orange one anymore.

I actually just picked up a couple gallons of the OG pre-diluted orange from Amazon. Shipped and sold by Amazon as well (not 3rd party).

I see on some of the reviews that they send out the yellow one for some customer. When did you order yours

I noticed it was coming in and out of stock when I last checked a few weeks ago. I just ordered it yesterday evening actually on a whim. So I'll update when I receive it if I received the orange or the yellow.

Really curious now. Yep, let us know. How much?


And since I have a reusable air filter and paid a maintenance plane for the RS, u asked them to place the new air filter on the passenger seat:

352661


It's not like I am going to use it, but might as well get my monies worth.

Talking to my Ford friend when I picked up my order last week... he mentioned he’s selling aftermarket air filters because he can’t get OEM ... FYI

It was like "$23 and change." However, after looking at pretty much all the reviews going back to last year, not a single person actually received orange. It was all yellow. Oh well. If I get yellow, I'll just return it to Kohl's. Not because I can't use it, but because I can get it cheaper from my local dealer. I'll keep you posted.

Next track day is beginning of July. With a baby at home I don’t have much free time to prep so gotta start now!

352715


managed today to install the ground control front camber plates, change the engine oil, transmission oil and PTU oil. Definitely spilled the trans tho lol a jackstand was in the way of my tray

352716


352717


trans was very clear, quite nice. PTU was also in good condition, no flakes but the built in magnet did have some sludge on it. Didn’t seem very metallic though. Engine oil was also superb. Last oil change was august? Two track days and a bunch of km, about half way down the dipstick. Not bad for a car that’s pretty beat on

you just love removing that front bumper cover...don't you? (y)
last oil change was august? i thought you daily drove yours?
Yeah I need to address the intercooler and piping. Takes only like ~8 minutes to take off, so might as well just get it right out of the way.

And yeah she’s a DD but my commute isn’t very long. Especially compared to the average American commute

couple weeks ago i swapped the oem clutch spring with steeda spring. eliminated that last 30% of clutch release.
still have that gear delay though. next stab will be to push out that valve restrictor in the fluid line.

Does the clutch pedal fully extend? I heard that is a small slack.

I installed the Massive "stubby" rear endlinks. It almost gets the bar ends parallel to the ground. Even though there are visible threads, the male heim joint is bottomed out. The stubby one also has wrench flats.

stubby Massive / OE / standard Massive


OE location


installed stubby
