Going from full boltons to stock engine, how much of a negative difference did you feel immediately after?

Trying to work toward only having necessities and important wants. The aftermarket sub and amp will stay, Suspension mods stay, just about everything else went . Still fun to corner, but got rid of engine performance mods. Got rid of stereo mods. I have bikes to go fast. Got a Bluetooth phone connector (only used Bluetooth mode on my DDIn anyways!).

I was thinking of selling the car, but the value just isn't there. I'll drive the G probably until 300k miles now. Well, unless the engine burns massive oil or the tranny goes. We'll see. Shame how much these dropped in price.
Ahhh I see. And that's pretty understandable. I had a good bit of money set aside for some car goodies to install over the winter but realized that while I may not be broke in college for now it'll come soon I'm sure 😂 thinking about a bike for the speed fix though...

It sounds very different. I kinda like it for now. It has some minor drone which could use my attention. I'll probably look into an aftermarket resonator at some point.
those mismatched tires tho...

I feel it. It's quite the difference! Motordyne Midrange Dyno chart is no joke.

I've replaced our fans and radiator with parts from Rockauto. Purchased TYC brand for both. They were inexpensive, fit just like OEM and worked great. Each of them were under $90 shipped in Texas.

I feel your pain. 5 mph hit. Guy hit me in a parking lot diving for his cell phone. I went to put it in reverse but...it happened so fast yet he was going so slow. My uninsured policy is covering this schmuck's **** up. Close to $5k in damage. Nutz.

I know. That's a lot based on the damage. Core support, driver head light, bumper cover, crash bar, misc. crap and a few hundies coming out of my pocket to make up the difference to paint the hood, blend the fenders and paint the side mirrors. All original equipment and new parts. I found a brand new and legit o.e. driver head light and the difference between what the shop and insurance quoted a replacement at ($1,400) and my Ebay price ($240) was applied to the hood, fenders and mirrors.
Damage + rental came close to totaling the FX out but the claims adjuster assessed the damage in person and said based on condition and low miles, it's got a fair value of $14k.
Driving this piece until I get my **** back.

I posted once and the post vanished so I whipped it together a second time and now both were posted? Strange.

Replaced my valve cover gaskets and spark plugs since there was a little bit of oil in the spark plug tube of #5.



I noticed (what seemed to me) a good amount of blow by residue in the plenum.




131K miles on it, and I doubt it's ever been cleaned before so this might be normal. I didn't notice any residue in the inside of the TB so I don't think there's a problem with the PCV on the driver's side leading to the intake. I also haven't noticed a large amount of oil consumption between changes. I cleaned everything really well and re-installed.



I'm going to open it up again in a couple thousand miles to see if there's anything new. I might install a catch can at that point to see if that clears things up. The passenger side came with a new PCV valve, so that could also be the culprit.

That's a really good insurance company to pay all that especially the blending. After the car is I think over 3 years old they dont pay to blend anything no more.

Crazy how such a small crash makes so much damage :[
