Re: 2014 DGM Sti - I promise I won't mod it ;-)

This happened this morning:



And this happened yesterday:


I'm not even sure what to make of it... was going to reflash yesterday but decided to wait it out till this AM and see what happened on the way into work. Luckily I got a log of the fine knock last night, but not the feedback this AM.

Ordered this:




I think I've run the course of my supposed bad tank of gas, hopefully things normalize for me and I can start driving the car like a normal person again.

If not, and the engine lets go - I'm torn between IAG and OutFrontMotorsports.


Fingers crossed my engine doesn't let go. :-(

Re: 2014 DGM Sti - I promise I won't mod it ;-)

How do you like it? Any noticeable differences while driving with it now?
Not a huge difference, but I did it early on to try and prevent myself from having spot weld issues at the firewall. I also recently braced the brake master, I don't notice a huge difference there either, but again more for peace of mind.

I did visually notice flex in the firewall, especially at the brake master! So that's what prompted me to jump on the Grimmspeed brace.

It's better than nothing but the GS AOS isn't an end all solution.

Where about in Chicagoland are you? Suburbs?

Yeah, I actually panicked hard core because I was getting some excessive blow by from the oil fill, but then realized I had no pressure at the crankcase. :lol: It was a panicked impulse buy. :crying:

I'm Northern burbs by Great America. You? <-- EDIT: Nevermind LOL I see Naperville now. I only started reading a few months ago. :rofl:
