    Where is the PS upgrade thread? I have never seen it? I need to jump on it if it as easy and cheap as you say.

    Re: Mod progression/route? (for track/street)

    On the FAQ: http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/answe...ler/index.html

    I don't think that the part number mentioned is still available, but there are others that will work.

    I would recommend this mod to anybody who may see track time. It's one of those mods that I forget that I have and thus forget to recommend it to people. Quick and easy using the FAQ procedure. I'll try to find the part number of the one I used.


    Stock vs the Fluidyne. Once I finally get my grills powdercoated black, i'll probably rattle can the cooler black as well.

    How about the FHP-10029? It's the successor to the FHP-10026 mentioned in the FAQ. And it's slightly bigger (8.75" x 14" versus 6.5" x 14").



    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/fld-fhp-10029

    Edit: they're selling it on eBay for $48 (I just sent in an offer for $45 including shipping--pending). Noice!

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Flui...6d417e&vxp=mtr

    ----------

    Bam! Best Offer accepted. $44.95 shipped!

    ^That might be the same one I have just black. Nice purchase either way. Quick, cheap and effective upgrade.

    Sorry for the thread jack btw.

    The top of the purple tool has numbers which I think is what he is refering to. I believe the tool is an updated kit. Mine came with it as well, it is still just an allen key but with a fancy handle.

    Same slot at the bottom but I guess the newer ones have numbers for indexing - I have 2 sets of KW V3's and both have this feature.

    And where did you get the handy little tool for the rebound adjustment up top? Did that come from KW? I just got a plain ol' allen wrench with mine.
    Yep it came with the kit! You can probably call KW main office and get it shipped free. I had them ship a couple of collars when mine broke and they were very easy to deal with...expedited shipping too (free)!

    Interesting, it appears the forum is disabling (some) external links. Fuzzy's post originally had the word "these" hotlinked to something, but now that hotlink is gone. And the ebay link in Fuzzy's post about the PS cooler is also no longer a link.
