I looked into Micheline's warranty. It states a 30K "limited warranty", and offers no description of what "limited" means.

I'll go out on a limb and say that means no warranty. They barely last 20K miles, much less 30K.
It's very convoluted. You have to open the PDFs in the links near the bottom of their page (under the Downloads section) and read all the footnotes and fine print. Their OEM tire and not-OEM tire warranties are different.

Yeah....I already went through all of that.

There's absolutely 0 description of what "limited warranty" means. But I'll bet it means only factory defects are warrantied.

Added the RTR (Koni) adjustable struts. Shocks next. No impressions just yet as the car is in full mod mode in the garage.

What’s the proper break in procedure?
Drive hard and fast, get as much heat into the pads as you possibly can the moment you put them on the car.

Just in case you didn’t know, I’m kidding. Don’t do that.

Just bought a ROUSH CAI from AM - currently in the install process (Update: I dropped my screwdriver in the fender crack 🫠)

As lots of others have, I installed a Steeda clutch pedal spring. Install didn't go smoothly at first. I tried needle nose Vise grips and struggled like hell as they kept slipping off. Cannot recommend that method. I used regular size Vise grips instead. Push the pedal down all the way with your left arm, get the jaws over two coils. Squeeze the Vise grip with your right hand until it locks. The spring assembly literally falls out. Transfer the perch to the Steeda spring and compress by hand, bottom in first.

I took it out for a rip. The new spring required much more effort to move the clutch than the OEM spring (as is expected). If you have a weak leg or bad knee or you commute in stop & go traffic, you might not like it. I found it much easier to modulate the clutch due to a more linear action and the Steeda spring doesn't try to throw your leg off at the engagement point like the OEM did. The feeling is more like a traditional clutch. I highly recommend it.

I did the Z23's recently as well, so easy to change and a big difference in brake dust. I didn't really notice any difference in performance but I did break them in properly.

Yeah, my PP wheels look so much better after a number of drives. I'm digging those P6GR 5 stars too. Waiting for a deal, doubt I'll get one these days :)

Just finished installing my ROUSH CAI - I must admit the “noise tube” was a pain to remove

Installed the Bomba vertical links. Pretty nice for $99. Install is super easy. No driving impressions just yet. Maybe tomorrow
