Tuesday I'm doing aeroseal on my ductwork.
Pro tip:
If you use frothpak or something similar, fill the bottom of the bathtub with hot water, and let the bottles soak for a bit.

Same here. I think I've been bowling approx 2 times in the last 17 years.

I watched a video on YouTube and was summarily surprised to learn about the asymmetrical cores to the bowling *****. Kind of interesting.

I am wondering if my local machine shop will be willing to attempt to clean this VVT head or not.

The bolt fell down while I was removing the stock cops from the VC. Nothing to worry about with it.

Yesterday was hella cold, and normally when I have the heater running the basement gets hot as ****. It stayed pretty cold; suggesting I was losing a LOT of air before it could even hit the living spaces.

Probably could have just done mastic, but we really wanted to make sure we sealed up everything, not just what was exposed in the basement.

Noticeable difference right away when we turned the system back on, nearly 400CFM of air going into the livable areas not just the basement.

What's even more comical is how quickly the bubble caught up to the other car AFTER wrecking...
