Can you feel a difference with just changing out the vertical links? What did you torque the bolts to?

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

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.
If you search for the word "limited" in the Michelin PDFs, it talks about some of the limitations of the warranty. Anything that doesn't meet the requirements per their defined valid warranty are outside those "limits", and that's essentially what a "limited warranty" means. That's basically true for anyone's "limited warranty" ... there have to be some limits set. For instance, all the things outlined in "What's Not Covered" are outside the limits of the warranty.

I haven't driven it yet, so I can't say. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do that tomorrow.
Others have said they noticed a difference. So I figured it was worth a try

Top nut was torque to 76lb and the bottom to 129lb per the instructions on their website

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

This explains why I was unable to pull off yanking the sound tube out, no commitment to bludgeoning my thumb like you did.

Had the Roush coil covers painted and installed them. Also put on the JLT master cylinder cover and Ford Performance engine cap set. I also had the JLT strut covers and a new fuse box cover painted; those will go on next.

Thanks,
I've got a pair from Steeda that has been in the garage for too long.

I haven't driven it yet, so I can't say. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do that tomorrow.

Thanks. Yeah, the 18+ engine looks like crap, especially with the cover off which itself is not so great looking. Second best thing about the the supercharge is it really improves the look of the engine, particularly (at least I think) with the the coil covers.

Finished it off yesterday with the strut covers and fuse box.

What’s the proper break in procedure?
Get em hot without stopping and drive around long enough to cool them off.

Break in your PowerStop Brakes as follows:

5 moderate to aggressive stops from 40 mph down to 10 mph in rapid succession without letting the brakes cool and do not come to a complete stop. If you’re forced to stop, either shift into neutral or give room in front so you can allow the vehicle to roll slightly while waiting for the light. The rotors will be very hot and holding down the brake pedal will allow the pad to create an imprint on the rotor. This is where the judder can originate from.

Then do 5 moderate stops from 35 mph to 5 mph in rapid succession without letting the brakes cool. You should expect to smell some resin as the brakes get hot.

After this is complete, drive around for as long as possible without excessively heating the brakes and without coming to a complete stop (Try for about 5 minutes at moderate speed). This is the cooling stage. It allows the heated resin in the brake pads to cool and cure.

After the brakes have cooled to standard operating temperature, you may use the brakes normally.

@pilotgore funnel.

Locks on with quarter turn like oil cap so can't get accidentally knocked off in use. Caps for both end so no drips in storage or cleaning before each use.

There was a time where we didn’t support the GT, you’re correct, but now we have a funnel for pretty much any ford dating back to the mid 90’s.

Maybe 3-4 months ago I posted something on the GT side of the forum and mostly got crickets, mixed with “who the hell wants to pay that kind of money for a funnel when you can buy one from autozone for $4.” Maybe I’ll try again once we have an oil filter guide for the GT (currently being designed.)

Put them on, its very easy. Here's an install video, should be pretty much the same for the Steeda version
watch

I drove the car, I feel like I noticed a difference right away. I'm also willing to admit that it could just be in my head.
