I joined Facebook a few months ago solely for access to car parts. Forums are pretty dead in comparison.

The other day, I was next to a focus St in traffic. He had a diverter valve spacer. Sounded like a bus on its brakes. Really reminded me of the old days of golfmkv. WOOOOOOOOOSH.

My forge DV relocate was louder. But its supposed to make that noise.

Went to drive it to work this morning and it’s stuck in 3rd gear. Not sure if it’s calibration or hardware related yet

Fixed it, it didn’t like the plug gap. Closed it up some and it’s all good
