That 3M Eraser Wheel is extremely dangerous around paint in the hands of the inexperienced. Better to use a heat gun on low first. I wouldn't use the eraser wheel except as a last resort and keep the RPMs low and slow.
You have any experience with removing baked-on, cracked Roadster top liners? Most posts I’ve seen say the same: mild heat and scraping. I tried but it was very messy and slow. I have the adhesive wheel on order. FYI I am tentatively planning to wrap it next year, so may have them take care of it.

This is to be expected. Patience is the name of the game. The slower you go the better chance you won't mess anything up. If the adhesive is being stubborn, there is no magic answer for quick removal.

I have a K&N intake, FI Resonated HFC and FI exhaust w/ 18" resonators. All mods were done by a previous owner but I couldn't find a tune cable anywhere so I figured I'd get a tune, mainly for throttle response tweaks and to make sure everything is running decently efficiently.

The car has almost 80k miles and is in great shape and I want to keep it that way! I don't have any major plans to upgrade anything else at the moment since it's my daily driver I'm keeping stock suspension but, if/when things break I'll be upgrading them.

I would ditch that intake if they are short tubes. you would be better off with the stock boxes.

If they're short tubes, ditch 'em. I have a set of low mileage Z1 CAI's for sale. PM if interested.

I have the Z1's installed. No cutting required, similar gains to the Stillen Gen3. Overall, a great set.

My main concern with the long tube headers is the rain/wet as I daily drive my car. How much of an risk/issue is this?

I have the Stillen G3's. I've driven it in flat out down pours with no issues. with the filters up behind the bumper. They're out of the way. But if you use one of those air scoops. That's a different story.

being all NA, i'm similar, have Motordyne Shockwave exhaust with ART pipes and long tube Stillen CAI..... these #'s are after the Ecutek tune

getting the tune after the upgrades was a major difference, well worth it IMO in terms of throttle response in the mid range...

also, having launch control is awesome!


..not that it matters for a tune but do have a fortune-auto coil over suspension installed and did the Z1 moto/trans mounts & sub frame/solid diff bushings

Thanks guys! I ended up buying BettyZ’s Z1 long tube intakes. It’ll delay the tune but it’ll give me a chance to see if I feel up to the task of working on the car myself!

Mish*tmoto thermostatic plate. Typical Mish*tmoto quality control. Their supplied M20 fittings wiggle in the threads like a whore in heat. And that 1/4" port looks real useable.

Only reason I took a chance on their chitty products was I wanted a better way to run the oil feed line than the frankenfitting off the oil pressure sensor port.
