On a good note, the engine turned out to be okay. It is being put back together, and should be shipped home this week! Thank god. It's been 5 months. What a fiasco with UPS :[

I recently purchased a used HKS, and it needed some SERIOUS, TLC.







Okay, this was the remains of a doughnut gasket SHOVED into the flange and baked on -- as you can see the flange needed to be cleaned up rather intensely. The surface on it was like a piece of bread with cavities and mounts. I dremeled the surface down for about 30 minutes until it was 90% smooth and then hit it with a grinder and now its back to a glassy surface.

Just picked up this lip. Partly because I haven't see anyone running it and also because of how aggressive it is. Who knows, it might be going back. Have to mock it up before making the final decision!

Thank you UpscaleAutomotive!



Lip is currently back ordered 6 weeks, don't really feel like waiting for it.

So.... I ordered the TiC parts about 30 minutes ago and thanks to Clint -- they are now on their way already. HAHA, these guys don't mess around! Can't wait to install these!
