    I wanted to make this a poll, but I can't seem to find the option or maybe admins have to do it??


    Anyhow, who does their own modifications?
    I do! I do!

    Who else?

    Amen to that!
    I still end up spending way to much time on things that shouldn't though.

    Yup, +1!

    I will not even THINK about attempting a limited slip diff install (or final drive r&p, transaxle gear cluster change), and MUCH KUDOS to those who have done this themselves, and were successful at it.

    The same goes for any head/cam or internal engine work.
    (I am 'lost in the wilderness' when it comes to; degree wheels, torque angle dealings, and torque to yield fasteners, especially with no factory shop manuals for guidence! )

    Wrench therapy 4tw. I could never do technician work for a living though. My vulgar threats to the vehicle and alcohol consumption would likely be frowned upon.

    I was a tech for about 4 years, I think every 3rd or 4th word was some variation of f*ck
