    Not at all. It's an entirely different beast

    Doing some maintenance on the Mark reminded me of why I sold my last one. Love this car, but the scarcity of parts and the price of those that remain are worrisome.

    That horn body is MASSIVE! Let me know how you like your new amp.

    You're on the right track. It looks abnormal to you so you're curious. On the Silverados, I'm willing to bet they spend most of the time idling or are used for short distances. Manifold pressure is highest at idle and low throttle, so the oil vapor condenses and puddles in the manifold and associated ducting. The problem with the direct injection engines is just that. Without that injector squirting the fuel at the back of the valves such as in traditional port injection engines, the oil vapors settle on the back of the intake valves and heat from combustion turns them into carbon deposits.

    And Sean beat me to it.

    If they are designed and installed correctly, they work well. The problem with most kits is they just don't provide enough length of hose for the oil vapor to condense and fall into the can. Most of the oil vapor makes its way back to the intake and renders the catch can pointless. The thing you really have to ask yourself is, why do you think you need one? Do you want to believe the marketing hype? Cars have been running normal PVC systems for years without issue. Only recently with the advent of direct injection have we seen issue with carbon deposits being a detriment. IIRC, you have the Ecoboost, so that is direct injected and you could benefit from a can given it's implemented properly.

    I've never used a headlamp, but I freaking LOVE my Fenix flashlights!

    For as cheap as their cars are, the interiors are stupid nice! I miss my 6.

    Rotary is fine as long as you use the right pads. I use the Harbor Freight RO unit myself. Been running strong for 3 years now. I think I paid $56. Really hard to beat.

    I never even thought of it from a steering perspective. You need traction even in the water.

    I don't know if this is the case for all hydrophobic coatings, but I was looking to use them on some stainless canals and pits when I worked at Aramark. I got in touch with a company who sold a product called Ultra Ever Dry. They were the industry leader in industrial hydrophobic coatings at the time. Upon speaking to them, they informed me that if the product is used on a substrate that is submerged in water for a significant amount of time, it actually loses it hydrophobic properties. They told me all coatings were like this. They could not explain to me why because of "trade secrets," but said I would never find a product on the market that would last if it was continually submerged in water. Personally, I am thinking because nothing is truly sealed and everything is porous, then if it's constantly submerged, the water effectively works its way into the pores and under the coating and will eventually lift it. Just my thoughts. While we are on the subject, I use Scorpion CMX Ion on my gel-coated trailers at work. It has stood up to the constant bombardment of a 3K PSI pressure washer. I'm on the two year point on one of our rentals and it's still holding up to bi-weekly washes on straight gel coat. I also use it on the thin aluminum diamond plate on the trailer steps and rock guards and it works fantastic! The front of the trailers take a ton of abuse from road debris, but the Ion handles it like a champ. https://scorpioncoatings.com/cmx-ion-ceramic-coating/

    IS it as super rusty gray car? IF you want me to look at anything, just let me know.

    I'm lucky. No inspections here.

    You know, their market share is so small, I think they could survive on Speed vehicles only.
