    Hello. Long time lurker, short time member, first time posting.

    Just wanted to say thank you to those that post DIY info. Been wrenching since high school (long time) on 4 and 2 wheel vehicles. I appreciate the advice and tips you provided from your experience.

    Recently replaced the valve cover gaskets (+ cam caps), rack/pinion bushings and the carpet (thanks Harvey). The carpet was by far the worse, tedious PITA to make sure I didn't trim it too short.

    The K&N setup is unexpectedly loud and I think I lost some top end torque. I'm considering trying to enclose the filter somewhat to quiet it down.

    Thanks again.
