Having some troubles installing the Torque Solution cable bushings. One came out simply enough, the 2nd is seized on pretty tight and won't budge.

The new one is slightly bigger and has less tolerance. Should mean less play.

It is last year's model of this

Only difference is basically that mine runs Android 4.4.4 rather than 5.1 - doesn't make a huge difference really!

-10F. Good day to do an oil change on a friend's car, flush his power steering, and fix a leaking exhaust flange gasket, right? (Side effect of the DNA Motoring header. I don't think the flanges are cut right. It blows gaskets like crazy)

Lol, it is a serious piss off, yeah. But when I bought it I said I was doing it as an experiment. So far the result is DO NOT BUY IT.

I thought I saw rust pitting on the pipes a couple days ago and took a picture. But a snowball was able to wipe the pipes mostly clean again. Ruined my excitement. I thought that was going to be a good killing blow and I could end the experiment.

I'd love to get the RRE headers for the V6, but am dreading the install and the CEL that'll undoubtedly illuminate. Might take it to a proper exhaust shop and have them break their heads over it.

Same... Now that I have a garage, I kind of want to do it myself because I want to learn... but I still don't know if I trust myself.

Not sure how things are up in Canadaland, but down here most exhaust shops wouldn't touch that install, as they're not allowed to delete emissions equipment.

It's really easy to find a shop that'll do it. Not just the sketchy ones that are open at 2am either (yeah, those exist, and I'm pretty sure they're Chinese mafia).

fhadso will become famous soon enough
Today I reconnected my EGR valve wires, and replaced the EGR valve. A previous owner probably had a bad EGR valve, and instead of unplugging the harness or actually fixing it, they cut the wires all the way down to the loom. Needless to say, I was getting about 23 mpg highway and about 19 city - with a GS.

When I replaced the EGR valve, I noticed some what I assume to be built up exhaust/gas/oil mixture. Reminds me of the oil that accumulates in the PCV. Should I have sprayed that out with intake cleaner or something?

You've got oil in your intake manifold? You might consider installing an oil catch can, I know I have.
