Cobb filter is oiled. Absolutely nothing wrong with using an oiled filter as long as it isn't over-oiled.

Its preference. Oil has been known to gum up MAFs, but it also catches more fine particles like dust.

I'm going dry filter myself, should be getting my aem Saturday

K&N comment peeps- it wasn't very oiled right out of the box and i plan to oil lightly in the future. there's also MAF cleaner that dries quick like brake cleaner that could also keep the MAF clean if used when cleaning the filter.
Thanks for the heads up though, food for thought.

I'll be getting the front shifter bushing bracket replaced tomorrow (too weird to DYI at my comfort/skill level. might have to lower the exhaust and raise the tranny a bit to put in a $16 part... ugh. Torque to spec at all times! i forgot and went way passed 13lb)

so new bracket goes in, while down there we'll put the rear shifter KB bushing in and some Eibach camber bolts i was gifted.

Then off for alignment. turns out Pep boys has a 1 year unlimited alignment plan for $110 and they'll adjust camber to what i request while doing the alignment.

Thinking of 1.5 all around. spec book says .10 front and 1.15 rear stock
we'll be doing a member day at MSR soon.
any objections to the 1.5 or other suggestions?
cheers

Be careful with the MAF cleaner, be sure to let everything cool first. I've heard a couple horror stories of fire

It's plasti dip from dipyourcar.com. It's a custom combo of black and gold metalizer. Looks almost like jbp/obp.

Ran for three days without a radio that had no power so immediately assumed it was a fuse, until finally yesterday decided to check all my fuses and they were all fine. Was stumped for about an hour, til I remembered their was a fuse behind the radio. Tore up center console,
Found fuse

Pulled it, twas fine. After I had given up, I put it all back together turned the key for all accessory lights. And somehow magically my radio worked lol. I was ecstatic!! But still not sure why it stopped working in the first place.. .

Yeah, see I checked all of those and they seemed fine as well, my brother and my bro in law recently help me wire in some new speakers in front so I checked those to make sure if that was the issue, maybe loose wire their. But nope. So its still a mystery..

Installed Password JDM bumper quick releases and a Perrin blow through boost tube and got the car running. Half scaled my map. Now I just need to rescale my map sensor so I can get to tuning.
