    Couldn't take it anymore

    The xB in my sig came with Eagle LS tires, I changed & gave them away in under 5K miles. Worthless! The Assurance Tripletreds were the only GY passenger car tire worth having-and they discontinued them!

    How does Champion compare to M1, Wix, Amsoil, etc

    The black Champion Federal Mogul (with the Champion spark plug logo) are made in Mexico by a contract manufacturer, pretty sure it’s not Mann or First Brands affiliated.

    Chevy to bring back the Corvair name

    That was good, I had never heard about the overheating/fan belt issues on the Corvair. GM seemed to have a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde thing going back then-when they were good, they were really good, and when they were bad, they were JUNK!

    My New Induction Scoop

    How did you make that? Stick of dynamite under the hood?? :ROFLMAO:

    Purolator PL10111 C&P

    But, rest assured, if you run Purolator for over 3K & you DO blow an engine due to the filter, too bad!

    Purolator PL10111 C&P

    Purolator has stated, for years, via their customer service, that NONE of their filters are rated past 3000 miles, even including their synthetic media filters, regardless of manufacturer recommended OCIs. I asked them years ago about the D3520 D+ filters going the Dodge recommended 10K OCI on a...

    FRAM Drive 9688 w/pics $4.99 @AAP

    These are a pure money maker, race to the bottom filter for AAP. These Ecores are available in a lot of other places (RA, Service Champ, private labels) for a FRACTION of what AAP is selling them for!

    FRAM Drive 9688 w/pics $4.99 @AAP

    With all the great coated, drilled & slotted rotors (& kits) available on eBay, mainly Brakemotive, I don‘t know why you would buy them anywhere else (as long as they’re not needed same day).

    Wix 57302 - bad changes

    Let's see how the media handles use before going overboard-but I had a feeling the Mann & Hummel takeover was going to be trouble...

    Mobil1 10W-30 API/SP jugs, $5.82 at Walmart

    Ummm... I wasn’t being rude, it was an honest question. I have a pretty big amount of HDEO & down to only one (leaky) diesel to use it in, I may have to donate some to the local food bank to use in their truck, or maybe sell some on CL.

    Royal purple oil filters have gone downhill?

    Champion Labs knows how to build decent filters-they've been building Mobil 1 & Luberfiner Imperial XL ones for years. I would think there would be some interest from them on that malformed louver one above, and now they're back with Fram again. Hopefully that's a good thing! RP oil filters have...

    Mobil1 10W-30 API/SP jugs, $5.82 at Walmart

    I h I have a lot myself-I have to ask, what are you going to do with it all?

    A relic I inherited...

    Used those at the Sohio I worked at in high school. Had to be careful, the point on it was really sharp, could cut you (or the side of the oil can) if you weren't careful.

    2015 Transit 250 (#1) 3.7L V6 - 7.3K miles - RGT 5w-30

    The big Transits are pretty overrated on payload capacity & towing. The high roof has a lot of headroom, but the extended Express/Savana have just as much cargo space. I actually miss the Econoline vans, at least they could generally make 150K without catastrophic failures. Sprinters, in the...

    Mobil1 10W-30 API/SP jugs, $5.82 at Walmart

    That's how I got the $5 5W30 Magnatec jugs, they were on top. It pays to be a 6'4" moose!

    Cell phone technology

    I work in too many remote locations, I can’t even get the company’s nearly worthless AT&T to work at least half the time, I have to use customer WiFi too.

    Cell phone technology

    I’ve been considering a move to Boost for home phone (& replacing wife’s Tracfone), but I cannot get a straight answer from Boost on WiFi calling, they have literally NO customer service. My limited experience with Sprint (Virgin Mobile) was, they’re not reliable enough here.

    2016 Transit 150 3.7L V6 - 7.7K miles - RGT 5w-20

    Do a little research on what it takes to get the transmission out of one-make sure you’re sitting down first!

    2016 Transit 150 3.7L V6 - 7.7K miles - RGT 5w-20

    Well, when all major components of the drivetrain have BIG MONEY issues inside of 60K, and the Ford dealers don’t even want to mess with them-and they haven’t been used for towing-there’s a problem. Let’s see if I can remember them all... 2015 Transit 250 mid roof 3.7: Torque converter clutch...

    2015 Transit 250 (#1) 3.7L V6 - 7.3K miles - RGT 5w-30

    The ‘15 was the one that lost the torque converter clutch, fortunately it was an Enterprise fleet rental, so they paid for it-but after 2+ months at a dealer (no parts/K member) & paying for a rental, which was probably $1K a week... the company paid for it anyway. I advised them to go back to...
