What Impulsed said (will just make it think it's lean) or if it's a post-cat O2 I don't think it would do anything.
Italian tune up = drive it like you stole it.

O BTW....I just got my orders to BO school in June Which means I won't really be back in VA till late July.....just in time to get underway again. So I probably won't make it to a meet till late Septemberish...unless I can squeeze one into one of the few 2 week periods I'll have.

That sucks, but it gives you plenty of time to save up for mods . If I'm down at the MLEA in June I'll hit you up.

Yeah I think we are conducting bi-monthly training there from here on out. We are going FEB 25, so if we stay consistent it should be in APR and JUN and AUG... When I was on the Tampa I use to take everyones duty for $$ when we were at the shitty ports, build a heap of cash for modding, lol.

my e39 would probably be in the higher price bracket right? I'll send you a PM.
He replied with this:

If you have the rubber stuff in your fender lip then yes. Is there anyway you can find out what your hub size is for me? I want to make sure the fender roller will fit over it.
I'm assuming the higher price bracket includes this service. He has a heat gun so if I dont get lucky tonight then I'm just gonna let him do it.

Pretty sure that you are suppose to remove it, I think the more expensive prices are because its a harder fender to roll... iirc. He did my rear two and they were simple, but Im on an E36 therefore no sound deadening in the fenders. But Im pretty sure he doesnt want to remove it for you, I'd be safe and PM him

If you try and roll without taking that deadening out you can crease the metal on the outside of your fender and make it look like complete shiat. Just a thing to think about

Rub it with a screw driver is all I found. Some people have tried heating. Some have had it fall out, some have had the worst experience trying to get it out.
