Aidan - thanks for the re-direction to your thread. Saw pics and a link to the PRL fitting but like you say - it probably does not have enough room. Have to come up with another idea.

They might have you hold 2500rpm, this is only if you're failing and they want to see if heating the cat more helps. It's 50/50 at that point.

Still not sure if I love or hate all that red...

And my daily passed emissions with a hole in the exhaust the size of Oregon and a rather obvious like 5" tip. Here in WA they just hook it up to OBD2 and read some ****... usually.

... Which is great, since you can pass smog with a megasquirt. Much better than having to deal with OBD2.

The control arms look pinkish. I'm hoping it's just the camera lighting. Actually scratch that -- I'm hoping they're pink.

Nial referred to it as Salmon. I think it's the lighting. They should match my valve cover.

What does everyone run for high temp brake grease. Like for the rear slider pins.

I just use high temperature bearing grease, because it is handy.

I use high temp moly grease. Wear gloves, moly is bad stuff for real.
