Got a new AC blower fan. Was starting to make a high-pitched "feeeeeeee" sound on left turns. Dealership couldn't replicate the issue, but I'm CPO so they said if I'm confident that's the issue and wanted to pay the $50 deductible, they'd do the repair. So far, the noise is gone.

I have the same thing happening to mine when the heat is on.

AFAIK, the part isn't too expensive and it appears to be easily accessible behind the glove box. I'll let you know if the noise comes back and this was a total waste 😁

At some point in time today, I am going to load up the Sneeky tune and see how it feels compared to the EQT tune. Not expecting to see/feel too much of a difference, but I will post some quick thoughts once I have driven a bit. Does anyone remember if EQT asks for a list of installed mods whenever you order an OTS tune from them? I don't recall if they asked for that last year or not.

I'd like to know outcome....considering this or Hoon for next, if EQT's hpfp 93 OTS is causing detonation (yes I'll be logging). And yes, EQT does ask for upgrades when you get an OTS tune.

Don’t forget to do a full pull or at least full 3rd gear type pull and data log it to send to Sneeky and take advantage of the free revision that he provides with all OTS tunes so it’s a little more dialed to you specific cars conditions.

For sure! The plan is to get it on the dyno in the next week or so to do some logging and to also compare my numbers from when I did a dyno run on the EQT tune.

Filled it with e85 last night and parked it in the garage where its gonna ride out this hurricane. Shutters going up and then I'm gonna be in a dark house with 2 large breed puppies unable to go outside until the storm passes. Pray for me.
