    Instructions:

    With the rear of the car safely supported, remove plastic zip tie that retains your e-brake cable (if present). Unbolt each end of the panhard bar and remove it from the car. If your new one is adustable, set it to be the same length as the stock piece as a starting point. Apply some anti-seize to the bolts and smear a little grease on the bushing ends. Install the new panhard bar and insert the bolts. Best recollection is that they should be torqued 65-75 ft.-lbs., but you should double check this spec. Re-install plastic zip tie around e-brake cable.

    If the new one is an adjustable unit, set the car back on its wheels and then bounce the suspension a few times to settle it. Check for any variance between the left and ride side as to how far the tire sets in from the top of the fenderwell. Note the difference, if any, and adjust the panhard bar to compensate until the axle is centered in the car. Be sure to lock it down with the jam nut.

    Uploaded the new tune with revised transmission settings and went for a cruise. 3,200 stall works quite nice. I opened up the cutout and left a good set of black marks in front of my friend's house in testament to the same.

    [yesterday, had no time to post]
    Drove it for a date that didn't happen, then had it washed (didn't have time beforehand). Had another disappointing experiencing later. Finally, [what happened to that thread?] a guy said "nice car" while I was doing laundry, and that was one of the highlights of the day.

    Nice!

    Made a custom battery hold down bracket. Did a little swimming while waiting for the paint to dry, going to put it on right now.

    Got the WS6 back from the shop. After a new EGR solenoid and AIR valve/motor and an induction service it feels like its got the grunt it had 20k ago.

    Drove to Onekama Michigan, then down to Archbold Ohio, then back to Mishawaka. Not all in a day but put over 700 miles on in four days. It has never been this dirty ever. I even cleaned it in Michigan. Covered in bugs & tar...

    Washed it up and took the family out for ice cream. Played with a built third gen on the ride home coming up our hill.

    Drove it a solid 40 min to a plasma donating center, donated said plasma, and drove it back. Went to KFC and got randomly complimented by the cashier. Apparently her fiance would kill for my car. (2nd time that's happened, same place, different girl.) Came back, decided to remove the hood baffles; realized that since I haven't fully moved from NY yet there are no tools aside from a socket or two so I can't even drill out the rivets to do so. Got annoyed because for some reason I really wanted to do this now, and finally, posting this instead.

    How do you debaffle the hood, I have been thinking about doing that.

    There's two sections of baffles as you probably know, the back and front; and ones for each side accordingly. You simply drill out the rivets (1/16" I hear) and remove them. The front baffles are glued in somewhat well so you need to remove the grills in the nostrils, and lightly tap on it with a stick or hammer or whatever (be careful not to chip paint etc) and it'll come right loose. The rear ones should come off once they're all drilled out, just need to maneuver them a little tricky because they're slightly bigger than the hole to the filter =P
