    BMR Tech Tip: Check those axle-to-spindle retaining nuts!

    I just had the drivers side rear wheel hub assembly replaced and now I have an intermittent chirp when I take off from a stop and from 1st to 2nd gear shifts. I hear the chirp in reverse, too. I checked the spindle nut, it definitely was not loose and torqued to spec. I know the shop that...

    Chirp on takeoff from drivers side rear wheel

    After searching this site I discovered a few things. Check that rear spindle nut is torqued to spec. Rear spindle nut is single use. Rear hub assembly is covered under the power train warranty. Ouch.

    Lund flex and e85r tune

    The problem I have with the test bottle I bought from Amazon is that it can't easily be filled at the pump. I use a plastic baby bottle with a wide mouth and fill that at the pump and then transfer to the test bottle. It's a PITA.

    Chirp on takeoff from drivers side rear wheel

    I was at a local shop having a new set of tires installed on my 17 GT - premium, non PP. The installer noticed a lot of play on the drivers side rear wheel hub, he showed how it would rock back a forth. A new rear hub/bearing assembly was installed. An alignment was also done on the car. I now...

    Lund flex and e85r tune

    Flashed the Flex tune and checked the alch_pct - it's spot on. Not sure why my previous readings were always low compared to bottle tests, even after a KAM reset. I'm just happy it's now displaying a reasonable result.

    Newbie Exhaust question

    Have someone snap your picture when you start it up for the first time with that exhaust.

    Lund flex and e85r tune

    I asked Lund - they said don't drop below 80% on the E-85 tune. Think I might flash my Flex tune and check what the E% reads on the Ngauge, been awhile since I checked it.

    Lund flex and e85r tune

    One thing I discovered about ethanol sensors after researching them, they don't measure ethanol, they measure % of gasoline and "assume" the rest is ethanol. Which is basically the same way a bottle tester works. There is a YT vid I found demonstrating the results one guy got testing various...

    Lund flex and e85r tune

    When running the flex tune my alch_pct never got above 72% on the Ngauge. I test my fuel source regularly - every other fill-up, with a bottle tester. It's always right on the money at 85% E. I don't trust the E % the Ngauge is calculating.

    Lund flex and e85r tune

    I loaded the Flex tune when my gas gauge was at 1/4 tank and then filled up with E-85. Drove on the Flex tune till 1/4 full and then filled with E-85 and loaded the dedicated E-85 tune. Test your fuel source first - the station I use (Phillips 66) the E-85 has tested spot on at 85%...

    (Install with Pics) Bluetooth Ethanol Sensor

    My only worry would be the reliability of the blue tooth connection with this setup, I'd rather have a hard wired connection to a gauge . I have an Ngauge and from what I've read you can connect an inline ethanol sensor to it and it will read and display the E%. I read a post on this site...

    Lund tune experience: at best a C+

    I will readily admit I have no technical knowledge on what is involved or why a gear change would not require a tune revision. I was just passing along info found on Lund's website. I have not had any issues with Lund's customer support, emails and questions have always been answered promptly.

    Lund tune experience: at best a C+

    Lund tune experience: at best a C+

    Since they can't deliver what they promised you're entitled to full refund IMO. Did you ask for one?

    Those with new exhaust - what are you doing with your factory catback?

    This pic reminds me of when I had my stock exhaust stashed in my shed. Kept it for 6 months before deciding it would never go back on the car. Posted it on Craiglist for $100. I sold it two days later to a guy who had recently bought used 16 GT with a crappy exhaust.

    I like those wheels. Can't go wrong with Conti's, either.

    Why Automatics Are Better Than Manuals

    For me driving a manual is a major part of the driving experience. It's that feeling of being directly connected to the machine that makes driving fun and not mundane.

    E85 gas mileage?

    Yes, my mistake, I meant 93 octane. My commute is a 50/50 mix of highway and city (lots of stop and go traffic). I haven't done any long range highway driving on E85, 20 miles tops.

    Micro2 fuse tap not fitting in kick panel fuse slots of a 2019

    I bought these fuse taps from Amazon and they would not fit, fuse tap is too thick and will not fully seat in the fuse slot. I returned them and bought a pack from a local parts store which worked.
