    What have you done to your P5 today?

    Same happened to me with the bolt. I also ended up just removing the heat shield after one of them stripped lol.

    Grif's White P5

    Not hard at all. Jack up the engine with a block of wood via the oil pan just to keep it level while doing it; so holes line up. I think it was a 19 or 21 mm socket? Need to remove bolt in the middle. Then you'll see the mount bolts you have to remove. Reverse process for install. If you're...

    Grif's White P5

    Just OEM mounts. We'll see how they hold! I have to check. Not sure if it was from when I installed the coolant overflow or if the hose isn't tight etc. The radiator isnt' even a year old so hoping it's not that. Although I may have to look into that radiator cap suggestion.. used the...

    Grif's White P5

    Sorry, been gone awhile. Thanks for the replies everybody much appreciated. The previous owner actually filled in the rear mount with something. Seems quite solid. I sold the AWR mounts in a couple days and swapped in the OEM mounts but left the front Hydra 70 duro one in. Much less vibrating...

    MP3 ecu on the way, some questions?

    Yes, you just won't utilize it's full potential; still quite a nice improvement anyway. Some people elect to remove the butterfly flaps. I haven't done it as it seems like a bit of work I'm not looking to do. Otherwise I've personally been running the MP3 ecu without VTCS removal and no...

    Grif's White P5

    Looking to do a few things in the upcoming days.. swapping back to OEM motor mounts. Quite sick of the vibrations as I'm usually sitting in the car at idle or in slow traffic. Although they feel quite nice in regards to performance, I just can't bear it anymore in the only car I drive daily...

    Where to find Tokico blues

    They ran pretty well for a year and a half, but they were new struts to begin with. Just a pain having to compress the springs etc. I wanted more adjustability because I wanted to go lower, that's pretty much it lol. Had small gaps that I wanted to close.

    Where to find Tokico blues

    Yeah, a full set of Tokico blues are as rare as a unicorn. I don't feel Yellowspeeds are that much of a "lower tier" brand, heck I was thinking of those before ultimately deciding on BC coilovers because of the color scheme hehe. And I live with that you get what you pay for mentality too...

    Grif's White P5

    Got the leak fixed! Actually turned out to be two exhaust leaks; the guy there pointed out that the hanger on my exhaust broke off so they welded that back on too. They got the donut gasket in after some work, no more leaks! It sounds great again. Recently turned my attention to a different...

    Grif's White P5

    Shoot, I might give that washer thing a try. Thanks for the replies guys :) Was considering just getting a whole new midpipe etc then be done with the exhaust setup. We'll see in time! Snapped a random pic today, got the coilovers all set at the height I want. No rubbing on hard turns etc :D

    Grif's White P5

    Replaced the spring bolts for the headers last night. The OEM donut ring gasket thing did not fit (the manzo headers have some donut thing already going), also tried making my own gasket out of a sheet. Still can feel air coming out of the top of the connection and it still sounds...

    @Riot_Polizei So far he absolutely loves it, cleanest protege I've seen so far.. told him I'd buy it (and keep as a daily) if he ever decides to sell it. But i think NaturalFlavored is selling a MSP Lip :p RPF1's would be my next choice as well haha @Dpwhitehead1 Agreed! Got this list waiting...
