It still seems strange to me hearing about people driving cars over Guanella Pass. I keep forgetting it's paved now. I grew up in Denver back in the 70's and 80's and that pass was a dirt road at the time. Parts of it could be driven in a car, but ground clearance was always a concern due to the rocks. My family only attempted it once and the old Impala station wagon took a real beating. The Aspen viewing in the fall was spectacular.
Last time I was over it was 20 yesrs ago on a dirtbike. You should go drive it (North to South). Such a fun road with very tight switchbacks on the way up that this car loves in 2nd gear. Then flowy, higher speed turns on the way down. I think the Loveland, Guanella, Hoosier loop could be one of North America's great mountain drives. It rivals some I've done in Switzerland.

No not yet, had an appointment for this past Monday but had a family emergency to deal so wasn't able to make it.

They don't replace the two speakers for the back seats, I don't care about those, they won't be producing anything meaning full compared to 400+ watts between the front 6 speakers and the sub.

HKS Spec-L II
Finally installed it. It sounds SO much better than any video I've seen. Way deeper tone and no droning. It's on the pricier side but imo its 100% worth it.

If I could go back in time, I would’ve gotten this instead of my HKS Legamax Premium axelback, Which is way too quiet.

Congrats.

Took off the bags and installed the Fortune Auto coils and new wheels.

Not done, going to raise it a little bit and get rear caster arms so I can center the wheel more and remove some of that camber.

Installed the SYMS Racing Team oil pan, install went smoothly and I didn't really have any RTV in the pickup after cleaning it out a year ago or so.






Their instructions were pretty good, once translated to English:

LII gang! Agree it's worth it. Sounds nice and deep at low rpms. Wish it were 2-3db louder at higher rpms (or that the regular L has swappable tips too) but easy fitment and no drone. No major complaints from me

I put a Gen One Spec L on. Love it. Love love love it!

One side sags an inch or tow lower than the other, I have to fix that.

What makes you get a baffle if i may ask? Oil pressure issue? And why that particular baffle?

Just risk aversion. The SYMS baffle is popular in the 86 Cup in Japan, they were blowing up engines, swapped to the SYMS baffled pan and the issues went away. Anecdotal evidence for sure, but I figured it was a year since I dropped the pan the first time, it was a good time to check the pickup again.

Installed the HKS Legamax Premium axleback. Sweet like sugar! Sounds “expensive” and properly tuned with looks to kill.
