    Drinking the purple koolaid - Switched to Royal Purple

    I made the switch to Royal Purple today. I didn't know it was actually purple til now. I went with the HPS 5W-30. I will start buying it online from now on -- def cheaper than Orileys. Seemed surprisingly "thin" for oil. :shrug: While the car was jacked up, I switched back to the drag radials...

    02 sensor - tune question?

    I have a fault showing up as a driver side rear 02 sensor. It actually came on right after the header install. I thought that maybe the car didn't like the headers without a tune. After the tune went in, it obviously did not go away. Is there an issue with just having the tune with 02 sensors...

    Cervini side exhaust or FRPP exhaust?

    I am stuck between ordering the Cervini side exhaust and the FRPP exhaust. Anyone run the Cervini exhaust? I am curious how obnoxious it will be with headers and a catted H-pipe. I don't mind loud, just don't want it to be annoying (ly) loud. I plan on hitting the "BUY" button by this evening...

    Pulley removal problems

    Pulley removal -- what am I doing wrong? I have done this a couple times on my older GT500. I have never destroyed a pulley like this. About ready to throw some wrenches through the windshield (and this is why I could never be a full time mechanic). :nonono: I am bending the pulley sides in...

    Garage Renovation

    Well, it's time to redo the garage. I have no idea what I am actually doing, but I have a good idea of what I want, kind of... I only know what my budget is -> shooting for 15K, but would venture to 20K if needed. We have an odd garage -- more of a garage in a garage. The original garage...

    Upgrading the car... without the car

    Anyone else have a bunch of new parts to go into the car they ordered? I started gathering all the parts for the new car that has been on order twice for over 12 weeks. Pretty much everything I have came from Lethal or Revan. I can't post anything on the new car, so figured this would help...

    Wait on current order or go with confirmed allocation?

    Just curious for some input. I ordered a Coupe on Jun 9th and agreed to 1,500 over MSRP. I was told by the dealer that I had an allocation when ordering, but I am figuring out now that I don't. I can't get any decent answers from the dealer. Another dealer (found through PenFed) has an...
