Two weekends ago I washed, clay barred the paint, washed again buff drying with a microfiber towel, then applied Meguiar’s new silicon ceramic wax with misted water followed by one more buffing dry with microfiber towels. One week later, after baking in in the hot hot sun...washed with Meguiar’s wash and a second application of ceramic wax. Looks mavalous

Over the weekend I picked up a roll of gap seal tape from a korean store for $2 and went ham on all the creaky and buzzy spots in the interior. It's like a different car now, completely free of all the interior noises. And it only took about 10 minutes

Removed the track pads and rotors and put the stock parts back on. Silence, ahhhhh!

Also changes the oil and went back to 0W-20 for the cooler months.

hey guys, im looking for some advice, my exhaust currently has no res or muffler, basically a straight pipe after the cats. i LOVE the way it sounds, yes its a bit loud but thats not really an issue for me HOWEVER, ive lost all of my already hard to come by torque I think its because of the backpressure/scavenging effect. Is there any muffler/resonator that wont change the sound but will give me back something on the low end, or would it be better to put the stock muffler back and run a cutout? just looking for options as there arent many used catbacks for sale around me and I dont have 800 for a new system
