I finished installing a uuc stage I ltw flywheel with e36 m3 pressure plate and e34 m5 clutch this week. It is really great so far!

I also installed uuc adjustable rear control arms (time for an alignment) and transmission mounts. Everything seems to be working really well so far, but my engine mounts and guibo are going to need to be replaced really soon. Upon visual inspection of both they are pretty much done.

My Ride: Touring, and others
Mine started throwing the 1421 and 1423 codes for low air flow to 02 sensors. I checked, and the Secondary air pump was not running. Jump wired the motor, and it ran just fine. Ordered a new Salmon color Relay, and changed it this morning. All is fine once more.

Took off the oil filter housing today. That gasket was beyond gone.. I'm taking the housing to school with me tomorrow to clean it up in the engine parts cleaning room. Then I'll put the new gasket on and reinstall when I get home.

Changed oil and filter. Went from Amsoil to Mobil1. I'll see how it holds up. I used Royal Purple before and I didn't like how dark it was after 6k miles, Amsoil held up alright after about the same miles, but don't feel too comfortable with it. Since I have to mail order my oil and can only get it USPS, I can't find a place to order Castrol.

Are you sure you installed right on the right and left on the left. It looks like they are the other way around... There is a marking on the rotors to say left or right...

Today I did my ZHP a favor and left it in the garage, and took our Explorer out into the ice and snow.
