    I'm gonna have 'em tuned off. Going for a dyno tune soon either way. Its not harming anything with em off. Just throwing that CEL, which I've basically learned to ignore. LOL I keep an OBDII in the car, and scan it every other day to make sure the same 12 codes show up.

    Re: 24 Hour Random Spam Discussion Thread

    Today I changed my two front rotors & pads. Drilled & slotted Power Stops with Evolution ceramics.
    Any way, while doing one side I noticed something iffy about the hub. So I phoned the local dealer..........sit down now..........

    $394.75 for one hub !! No wonder they went broke.

    Picked one up at PartSource for half that, slightly different but it works. Federal Mogul, made in USA too, not Chinese.
    Tomorrow I'm doing the rears.

    Re: 24 Hour Random Spam Discussion Thread

    hey i didnt wanna start a new thread for this so im posting in here.

    i just got this volant intake the other day. i think the lid is ugly and the fit sucks..


    do you think making a new cover for it out of stainless steel or aluminum would be a bad idea? i was gonna make one out of clear lexan but that shit was like $40 for a sheet of 24"x24" lol... for a piece of plastic wtf.

    anyways i could make a new lid out of pretty much any metal for free so i was thinkin either stainless steel #4 finish or aluminum checker plate... or do i need to stick to a plastic cover??

    Jesus dude, I did lexan on my volant and paid less then that for sure. I don't think its a bad idea as long as its within spec.

    i thought you need the lid, so that it didn't suck in the hot engine air?

    so after installing my intake i made a lid out of champagne colored stainless steel with a brushed finish.. while i was test fitting it to drill the holes i realized i didn't like it..

    i am gonna find some lexan or plexiglass somewhere and make a clear lid.

    if it turns out good im going to get white and do the lip on my rims.
