    Can i throw this here?
    I just changed my fuel filter after 25K miles.
    I always use shell, chevron, and in a pinch mobil. Never any no names, and i think 1 time costco, but that may have been before this filter.

    Many thanks to Tor, Robert, Matt, and Gadget.

    My lady may kill me for using that glass tho IMG_20170125_141533_282.jpg

    And this is a prime example of why you always change your fuel filter. Then immediately move out of Cali. Haha

    Haltech Elite 2500 installed and running better than the ProEFI ever did. With the help of 1GRracer, we went from idling to road tuning, in maybe 2 hours!

    Most recently, I reinstalled the 76mm TB. Instantly there was a "Calibration Error". Performed a new calibration, and it works flawlessly. Just like the original size. Never would work as well as the original, while on the OEM Ecu.

    Don't mind that negative slope. I moved it to be linear with pedal pressure.

    What did you do to the drum? Why did you cut it in half?

    I'm impressed with the elite tuning, well done. I wish I could use one and make my life easier. With auto transmission I have no choice.

    The drum had a lip that was catching on the drum shoes. The release mechanism was too tight to be able to spin through the opening in the back of the plate. Since I was replacing the drums with rear discs anyway, it didn't matter if I cut it off.

    I never put it on when I installed the 4.3L engine. Which was shortly after you had been down.

    Saving up for that Tig welder. Then I can modify some parts and install the good turbo.

    Nah. No offense meant, but I cannot justify buying something whose best selling point is a warranty to cover a lack of quality. I firmly believe in getting what you pay for.

    I'll save up a little longer for a Miller.
