Diagnosed my boost leak and fixed it today. That feeling when you pull out and feel full boost again for the first time in a few weeks.

Anyone have experience removing a car alarm system? Mine has an Omega Freedom 550, and I hate it. I can't immediately see where the main control module is, only the speaker...

Last night I installed the Cobb short shifter, f/r bushings, and Cobb shift knob in blue. Definitely a huge improvement over stock. The oem rubber bushings were already falling apart.

Fixed that for you

Also trolling aside, are you checking it with the motor running, in neutral with e brake on? That's how you check an auto.

You can buy 6", 8", 12",18",24" pre flared segments at oreilly and bend to suit. Make sure you grab metric. Just recently bent one for Taylor's car, when you changed the struts originally, you didn't anchor the line and it eventually snapped
