I also installed my Perrin front endlinks this weekend, man it took me about an hour for one side, cuz I couldn't get it all to fit, but after I figured it out it took me 15 mins on the other side.

I think I was holding my phone at an angle, the endlinks are perpendicular to the ground.

nice to see that doing real track days changed your life haha.

i get sad when i see some of my friends (that have never done any sanctioned driving events) mod their cars all crazy when i know for sure they're slow drivers and those mods dont mean anything on the street.

Got this from the UPS man today:
Killer B Ultimate Oil Pickup and Oil Baffle Windage Tray

I hope I can install it next weekend.

I'm just being paranoid, the pickup is relatively cheap, and shouldn't be too difficult to do. And since I'll be tracking more, I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Oil Pickup and Windage tray installed
Installed the KillerB Oil Pickup and Windage Tray last night. Not too difficult, had to remove the intercooler to undo the pitch mount. Removed the engine oil dipstick. Had to unbolt the front swaybar brackets to move the sway bar to get to the engine mount bolts. And lift the engine to remove the oil pan.

I would have liked to have gotten the KillerB oil pan, but I didn't want to spend more money for it.

I finally fixed my sqeaky clutch pedal today! I lubed up every pivot connection by the clutch pedal and it still didn't fix it. I took off the intercooler and greased the clutch fork to slave cylinder still didn't fix it. I then lubed the swivel joint that connects to the clutch master cylinder above the gas pedal and that did it! I was getting so frustrated and it was super annoying, happy to have it fixed.

Thanks. I just swapped out my brake pads back to HPS pads from the HP+ today.
