Today I started to install the ZL1 GT4 rear tow hook. Watched a couple videos for removing the rear bumper. There is just one master connector to disconnect for all the stuff in the bumper! (Side markers, trunk release, backup sensors.)

But they sent me the wrong receiver bracket. So I put the taillights and license plate back on because I need the car in the morning.

Well I WAS going to install my Gorilla lug nuts that I ordered from Amazon. They said my order was delayed but when I got home there was a package on my porch. They shipped only one nut out of the set of 40 that I ordered. Packing slip says 1 lug nut shipped and to pay $17.71. What kind of scam is this? F.U. Bezos and your penis rocket.

Hey Todd, looks like you bought them from a third party seller, not Amazon. You might want to check before you flame someone.

I see it's $3.17 each, not $17.71. Shipping is a separate line item as well as tax. No different than most other sellers unless they offer free shipping based on a higher dollar amount, which 40 x 3.17 should/would be. When you ordered online didn't they list all these line items?

Here is the item on Amazon.ca https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B01KHLKZQA/ref=yo_ii_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Set of 40 lug nuts for $80.46 Can.
I see that the item and shipping are separate on the invoice. I just listed the invoice total that came with the single lugnut.
I contacted the seller through Amazon. They are looking into it.
My guess is this is some tactic to avoid Amazon's penalties for late shipments.

Today I installed a Harrop Oil Cooler, DeWitts Radiator W/1.25” Tubes, MMR Water Pump Pulley W/ARP Bolts, Steeda Coolant Expansion Tank, Motorcraft Yellow Coolant and Redline Water Wetter. As well as changed the oil.
Currently checking for leaks and bleeding the air out of the system.

I’m still trying to figure out how that Harrop oil cooler is able to get cooled when the core fins are facing the road…. Do you have a way of monitoring oil temp to see if there is a definitive change?

there is LOTS of air with no where to go when it hits the brick-wall we call the radiator. So it goes left, right and down. Down is where the Harrop cooler is waiting for the airflow. The entire setup should be boxed but even as inefficient as the factory setup is, there is plenty of air available to do the deed.

I have the GT350 Oil Pressure & Temperature Gauges installed. Not sure how accurate they are but it should allow me to see if there’s any difference.
There have been a more than a few members here that have made this upgrade with positive results. Most are located in Australia, a few are here in the States.

It sat in the driveway ,while I nursed a sore twisted right ankle.
Had to goto the bathroom at 3am and have to use stairs, welp. like in cartoons ,That first step is a doozy. And weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, thud.
Amazing how after that ,My brain didn't seem to feel the need to want to get to the bathroom, it could now wait. lol
I'll take going down the stair case and only getting a sprained ankle and a few bruses as a win.

Air is always trying to bypass the rad, so plenty will go down through the cooler especially at speed.
