Man, I wish I had seen this before putting in my IS38. I broke mine and barely made it to the VW dealership before they closed for the weekend.

Also, just to reiterate the need for these, the m8 Triple Squares need to be SHORT and NARROW!
I recommend these, even though they're a hair expensive. I ended up borrowing one from a friend after several HOURS of trying to get my normal sized 3/8" triple squares to work.

The oil return line M8 triple square needs to be NARROW and/or SUPER LONG to get past the wastegate rod. A 3/8" ratchet triple square won't work.

The coolant line M8 triple square on the front of the turbo needs to be SHORT to fit between the turbo and the exhaust inlet manifold.

So, the ones I bought should be a hair smaller than that even, at least the M8 one. The ones linked in my post, up the M8 says it's 0.76", which is 19.3mm. Those are listed at 19.5mm. So literally a hair smaller lol.

I already have a set of short and long triple squares but these are so trick I ordered them anyway. As I said before swapping the turbo is much easier with the engine removed but at least I’ll have these just in case I ever have to do it again.

I just like the meme. I actually despise cats. They're useless. Sorry, cat people.

Dog person for life.

Cats are NOT useless.

They're perfectly useful and perfectly suited for keeping mice out of your shit. They are awful creatures that don't hide how much they hate you though.

The Labrador Retriever is one of mankind's 3 redeeming achievements.

Yeah I have no beef with cats, and in fact very much want one to accompany my two dogs. But I want a dog-cat. Not a cat-cat.
Not all cats and unfortunately, you won't know when you get one, can be trained like a dog. My last cat was and rode in the car etc just like a dog. Came when I whistled for her. Getting a kitten is obviously best.

yeah I think when the day comes for me to get one, I’d take a 2, 3 year old one that I have had the chance to become somewhat familiar with the temperament, or at least have a friend who can vouch for its temperament.

I have no cahonies to “train” an animal - my methods are almost entirely based on simply exposing the animal to a “lifestyle” - aka my lifestyle. And with time, they become used to that lifestyle, and don’t act like an ass when exposed to “that lifestyle.” I am mostly talking about walking off-leash, going camping, going to parties, etc.

I obviously wouldn’t be taking my cat to parties

I had a cat as a young kid that would come running when you whistled, and played fetch a little.

A local guy's cat Gary is Reddit famous, because he takes him skiing, kayaking, hiking, etc. The cat seems to like it, and even has a ski pass with his picture on it; the guy doesn't seem to realize that a dog is better for all those things LOL.

No judgement as to people loving their pets and familiars though. Hell, some people even keep birds as pets, if you can believe that.

Get a Serval, lots of qualities to admire:

-other cats and dogs don't scare it.
-makes funny noises that dictate its mood
-if you hear it hiss at you, you should probably run.
-fences don't matter, it can jump over them.
-can eat chicken faster than any human
-has a purr than can be heard from across the room.
-can lunge at you from across the room
-its preferred car to be taken to the vet in is a GTI
:)
