Re: Oversized Oil filter

It doesn't stick out past the rest of the oil pan, I made sure of that. I'm sure you could find filters with the same specifications that are longer yet, but this one looks like it's perfect as it sits just below the pan.

Oversized Oil filter

Hey guys, just wanted to mention that anyone who wants some extra oil capacity, or just more filtration that this is an option for you. I've been using KN filters for years including fuel, air, and oil filters. I was amazed how small the stock filter is on these cars. Curious, I did some research an...

Re: Brembo front calipers using 345mm PPV rotors

Got her all patched up now, and actually have decent pressure after bleeding them again. It's maybe not 100% but its definitely drivable with no spongy or mushy feeling.

Funny I had them on backwards lol. I did apply new blue loctite as well and torqued to 30ft lbs and then some.

Re: Brembo front calipers using 345mm PPV rotors

Interesting if they're backwards. I was going by the sticker lol. RF went on right front. Damn. Easy fix. Yeah new stock bolts as I mentioned earlier. They were the correct length. I'll use threadlocker when I redo them.

Re: Brembo front calipers using 345mm PPV rotors

Hey guys I got them on and they work great! Very quiet.. I modified the stock bracket for the technafit lines. Now I just have to bleed the system properly, otherwise front suspension project is done and so is brake upgrade. The stock bolt (bought new ones as mentioned above) had plenty of thread an...

Re: Brembo front calipers using 345mm PPV rotors

I don't know if this helps but this is the seller I ordered from. They are indeed 4 piston use the 14mm mounting bolt (the ones in my picture) are are made for 345mmx30mm rotors or 13.6" in diameter. Check the description. This seemed like the right package for me. They should be going on this weeke...

Re: Remote start adventure (11-13)

What's weird and what I've noticed is that the combination of programming I performed, and I remember reprogramming the theft deterrent module.. I actually have a car alarm. At one point it went off when my friend had the passenger door open and I tried to unlock it and he was in the passenger seat....

Re: Brembo front calipers using 345mm PPV rotors

Just wanted to give an update and a visual on part numbers previously referenced. 11570788 is slightly longer than the stock mounting bolt but I can confirm it's the same thread. 11570092 is the stock bolt. They are both 18mm heads. I ordered these through my local dealer. I've attached pictures as ...

Re: can I just swap out the radio?

Just wanted to post that with my 13 I was tired of not hearing the rear door speakers, especially with new Rockfords in, and so I drilled about a 3 1/2" hole in the doors and added a generic speaker grille. I believe it turned out okay, and I'm happy with the result. The sound output difference is n...
