OMG what a stupendously good idea. Definitely installing one on the next oil change.

Yep. No more replacing crush washers either. You also donít have to wait for the oil to cool before draining because it isnít going to run down your arm. You just need to be quick when you flip the lever because the valve itself will still be hot. Hahaha

Took the car back to the dealership and the foreman noted that he couldn't replicate sluggish acceleration during test drive... Yeaaaaaaaah, I fully expected him to rev down the dealership parking lot

And yet, they found my car was overfilled by half a quart .

At least the guy gave me a voucher for a free oil change...

Switched back to the summer wheels this weekend. Here in the Chicago area,this time of year,you can expect almost any type of weather,but Saturday was a perfect day to do it and it looks like we will be well above freezing from here until next winter.

How hard was installing the subframe bushings? I have to do that next.

Is the Cusco bar noticeable when driving, feeling-wise?

I can't drive it until my LS is in so... I dunno. Subframe want hard persee. Cross threaded a bolt though so that's the hardest part. Seems like maybe disconnecting and supporting the whole subframe until you can finger tight all your bolts would be best as opposed to doing them in pairs. I did pairs and my subframe definitely shifted anyways so it didn't do me any favors.

Thread is 14x1.5 if you need a tap though. I got extra long and it was barely long enough. Used a 3/8 ratchet extension to reach past the hanging handbrake cable

While I was swapping my wheels last night I managed to break one of my wheel studs. The lug nut wouldn't budge and I thought it was just really tight, so I pushed as hard as I could to try and loosen it and the nut just twisted off with a chunk of wheel stud still inside.

I'm convinced that lug nut must have been cross-threaded from when I had the shop my mount my winter tires, but I don't really have any way to prove that. I'll mention it to the shop when I take it there tonight, but I have no expectations.

I went with the same tires for exactly the same reason. Figure I have extended my "summer" setup by about 3 months over the year.
