Glowshift true wide band set up arrived today, hopefully the matching oil pressure gauge rolls up soon

The panhard rod wont brake in a hurry and although the links look a lot stronger than factory ones they are also designed to be the weak link in the system should something need to give

I can't imagine a situation, outside of high speed racing, that you'd need a swaybar link to "give way".

So today i had the car run on a local dyno to see how much power the snorkel was robbing from me. Absolutely shocked but stoked at the reaults as now i know why ots down on power. time for a 4 inch stainless snorkel.

Yeah, that's approx the loss expected through the entire drivetrain. I would've expected it to be about even (cooler air vs longer distance) but I suppose they're designed solely to raise intake and probably little research is done on how internal turbulence/airflow rates are impacted by their shape.

Personally, I'd be curious to hook up the computer see AFM readings with and without the snorkel to see the difference.
