I want to run meth for the summer but my dreams of retaining CPO still exist, and Iím too lazy to be pulling lines every time I need to take the car in. Itíll be hard enough getting work done with downpipes.
I had it done around 40k, but a lot of that had to do with problems that existed and trying to rule things out. In the end, I'm glad I did it, but don't know that the difference was enough to justify the cost at the time.
I gave up on trying to take everything out ever time I go in. I know all the techs, and just schedule straight through them when they have time for any kind of minor warranty work. My SA just always wants to know what else I have done since the last time I was there. Getting everybody a little something around the holidays has really paid off for me since I never get bothered about things anymore.

At 40k miles right now
Oh there will be pictures!
I'm not saying that it isn't a problem, just may be something that if the money isn't there, can wait a little bit. I know when I had mine done, there was a difference, but I'm not sure how much of that was the placebo effect going on as well because of what I was expecting.
I'm looking forward to seeing how that intercooler turns out, will certainly be interesting to see what you think of it when it's all wrapped up.
