Well now that you guys bought all of them, the cheapest 2' one I can find on Amazon is $47 and its no longer Prime.

Thermo-Tec also seems to make one, also 6" wide.

I need something to keep my downpipe from melting my master cylinder so I may have one of these on my shopping list shortly.

**** I suck at math

Ordering this:
Amazon.com: Thermo-Tec 11620 2' X 6" Pipe Shield: Automotive Amazon.com: Thermo-Tec 11620 2' X 6" Pipe Shield: Automotive
because I realized how retarded I am.

Welding looks weldy.
Oh, I missed that it was tranny oil, sorry. Yeah, 5 track days on that should be fine.

I use Redline MT-90, I've done a Blackstone UOA on it after 3 or 4 track days and it's been fine.

List is down to 3 things.

Reseal/refill diff.
Install exhaust heat shield.
Pack.

I installed a new USB outlet in the center console, so now I have 4 total. And also hardwired my V1 in a little better.

Also need to clean my engine bay. Ed's exterior is flawless, but his engine bay is disgusting. I will be the opposite and combined we will have 1 decent looking car.

I got a bad one as well. Replacement seems to be holding up, but the amount of force i had to use on some of these to keep them from leaking sketches me out. Never had to tighten this much on any of my other cars.

Thats really odd. I haven't heard of that anywhere else.

I use too much force on everything anyways so it didn't really bother me. I'm sure I'll break one sooner or later.
