Was doing some intake work and realized one of the manifold bolts was loose enough to turn with my finger. Never touched this bolt during my down pipe install. If you’re in there I would suggest taking a look. It was the bolt on the top of the manifold on the passenger side

Even after I torqued the studs to spec and then the nuts after I re-installed my Exhaust manifold.....I still found one hanging out on the lip of the oil pan right near to Turbo..one finger loose and one not there! I was like really...WTF. Got new studs and some nuts went around and tightened them all again. I will see if they are still tight tomorrow when I put my Winter tires on....its 35 degrees and I'm still rolling my Firestone firehawk 500s...god I am lazy!

Put the factory wheels/Pilot Sport AS/3s back on (took off the 'rally working' wheel setup, trying to save the Arctic 12s' tread depth for the stage driving).
Power sprayed the underside/wheel wells to get the mud grit out after the Empire State Performance Rally (last one of the year for me) worker stint this past weekend.

Side note; FINALLY got to see a Fiesta (an actual R5, driven/owned by Barry McKenna)) WIN one of these things at this event [twothumb], yup albeit due to the Scoobie Rally Team USA not showing up because they are too far ahead in the points to show up at a much lesser point 'paying' than a National event, (Super) Regional event.

Changed out the 5K old oil/filter to some Ravenol DFE 0W-20 with a quart of their REP 5W-30 thrown in to thicken it up a bit, along with a Fram ULTRA (NOT 'the orange can of death'! [nono]) 3600 size filter.
Forgot to drain the Damond OCC. [:(] [headslap]

Installed the Techmax H11 headlight bulbs and the Katana H11 foglight bulbs(they did not have anymore of the Techmax's and the Katana's had the exact same specs)! What a difference, now I can actually see, down the road, at night.

Just realized my 2014 has an engine out of a 2017. Bottom left of the engine label indicates March 2017, couldn’t make out the day though. Which means there’s also a chance it has less miles than the body. I bought it this year so I doubt the previous owner of this motor drove over 80k in two/two and a half years. IMG_3364.JPG

That’s because it’s E98 if you zoom in

OK, but when there was still an E85 station around here, they were getting about $9.00/gallon for their E98 Racing fuel [crazyeye] so at that price above, they are practically paying purityracer316 to use the stuff!! [wink] [thumb]
