    Thanks guys!

    I haven't been on much lately, because I'd rather be driving

    Thing is unbelievable. Crazy part is the noise. I have so much interior drivetrain noise with absolutely no exhaust note. Our engines sound incredible on the group N mounts. And the rear diff outrigger mixed with botox bolts, mixed with group N engine mounts, mixed with TiC crossmember bushings... I can hear so many transmission noises, it's not even funny. I had to sound cliche, but the damned thing sounds like a rally car from the inside.... but quiet enough that I can have a conversation

    Of the mods I've done (not really many) the trailing links were the most entertaining process. I usually tend to curse at my car until I force it to be fixed, but that was more of a "holy **** I can't believe this is working" all of the way.

    Installed that godblessed KB oil pickup today. Totally not worth it. Mine looked to be in PERFECT shape. No heat marks, or anything similar to the ones that people were concerned about failing, or had failed.
