It's the zero to hero bundle or whatever... for some reason that markup doesn't happen when checking out with just the turbo. Fuck them discharge pipes, I didn't want to install all of that anyway.

Occasional puffs of smoke on startup. Plugs are dry. No oil on turbine side. Oil in my inlet. Am I getting lucky and it's just the PCV? It's the original and I'm going to order one anyways. FCP shows my replacement is a "BM" is this one ok? T.i.a.

Sounds like your cell phones need to go on a diet.

Isn't it capacitive not pressure. So the signal from cell phone sets it off
