Not to derail the thread but I had one question/observation, I thought I read that you couldn't/shouldn't jack or lift a 6th gen from the aluminum subframes/engine cradle only the pinch welds? Was I misled/didn't understand correctly or does it apply to floor jacking only?

Thanks
No worries man, honestly I thought that only applied to jacking it up off the ground but you maybe right...not sure.

Yeah, it's perfect right now (except for that piece of caution tap that blew under my car on the highway and melted onto the exhaust!).

When I got it back and did that first real test, I got that warm feeling inside like I got when I first picked up the car after getting the supercharger. It's like someone unlocked a part of the car. It takes off so strong now. It's feels so balanced now and tight in back. I might have to take it to the track for a day.

That applies to jacking the vehicle only.
