Two story`s today.

A wilst back y`all may remember I scarfed the Steeda CAI from the guy here "used" at a good price. I wanted to clean it cuz it was grey. I ordered a Steeda Cleaning kit from Hillbank Motors on the 17 of Oct. Never shipped. Around the 10th of Nov. I ordered one from Steeda itself. It came in a week ago , and Went to town cleaning the filter. Well....Way too much oil. This thing has leaked oil for a week. Finally took a hair-dryer to it for about a hour and I think I got all of the excess oil out. Least it hasn`t leaked for a day now. Wish they gave better directions for cleaning than :"Dont Over-oil Filter": How was I supposed to know , I sprayed it till it turned blue from a spray can!!!!?

Second thing is that today I ordered the OEM Ford Plenum cover from Ford directly. I noticed that my MidWest Plenum cover has warped in the middle. I also think the OEM looks much better as well. There went 140 ducketts.

Air filter debacle- All I can say better luck next time.
MWAG plenum cover- I would try and get a replacement from them. They're products shouldn't be warping in your engine bay.

----------------------------
I finally shipped the 04 wheels and tires of yesterday. Glad to be done with that it was such a pita. Hopefully this next set sells locally. There seems to be no interest for them on ebay.

I just bought one of those hidden amplified antennas like Leo's.

Next time I'm bored, I'll give it a shot at installing it. I was going to wait until I get my DVD/NAV head unit and do it all at once, but since I don't know when that'll be, I may as well install it now.

btw- I still haven't hooked up my external HD I got for my Birthday (STD,&L )... been too busy with other stuff. Now, I'm thinking about getting one of those upconvert DVD players... means more money flying out of my wallet.

Hmmm....I smell an antenna write-up coming up. Yay finally I got Bill to spend some money. How's that for a change. I can't believe you still haven't hooked up your TV even though you took that whole day off work.

Ughhhhhh it's been a whole week since my last mod and I'm going crazy not being able to get anything else. Dam holidays having to spend money on other people. Modding is such a terrible addiction.

The only way I would pay that much for some are if they are attached to some really nice rims!
Great news, my GTA's are at the the local FedEX and should be delivered today... Just in time for a weekend installation!

Yes, Leo, you finally made me spend some money!

I already hooked up the TV (same day I bought it). It's the external Hard Drive that's not out of the box yet.

So, when will they be delivered?

OK I was wondering how you could possibly resist installing it.....What are you waiting for?

So, when will they be delivered?
Haven't ordered them yet since I'm not really sure I want them.

GTAs received today at 10:15 am... installed by 11:15 am and my test drive is complete.

At idle and cruising they are just a touch louder. Any pressure on the throttle and they immediately get louder and deeper. WOT is very nice. Overall, they have a deeper tone, the motor boat at idle is almost completely gone. I think the sound is more refined... more what a V-8 should be with out being too loud and waking the neighbors at 4 am.
I am very pleased with them. They are just what I was looking for.
