hmmmm not sure i should prolly know the answer to that question too . I got them from 3800performance.com. I was hoping ot have them here by the weekend but it doesn't look that way now. Got everything else tho, so i might do the fuel filter, and coils this weekend, along with getting the front rotors turned.

dbwilson if you want to get rid of the black stuff on the back of your T/B you can disable your EGR valve. From what I understand it does not do much for performance since it is closed under WOT anyway, but as you can see the unfiltered crap it is putting into your */C and engine.

Thank you 2000SilverBullet I should clarify though not to just block it off. It does need some airflow or you will get a C.E.L I put a filter on mine and just let it suck in air form the outside. If you do some searching on the site you should be able to find the thread.

Does the cabin filter apply only to the SSEI? Where is it located if equipped?

I'm not sure Mike? But you can tell us once you look.
The filter is located on the passenger side windshield wiper cowl. Fairly long and two tabs to open the cover and get at the filter.

Hey, I know the location and the contraption. Its on the outside, and you have to lift the hood up to get to it right? I know there is nothing in there. Where do I get the filter?

Regarding the warped rotors, on my 2000 I too thought my rotors were warped. However, before I pulled them for turning, I decided to check the lug nut torques since the dealer was the last one to pull the tires.
Sure enough, he had used an impact gun. When I loosened them and retightened to 100 ft. lbs, the "warping" and pedal pulsations disappeared. It'* worth checking.

no kidding? I get this from time to time.. How much does a wrench like this cost, where can I get one, any one recommend a brand? Where do I find the torque specs?
