Yes.... BCA is important. How did you break that already?

Bet this is why the 95 seemed faster than the 00.

Oh boy. I'm sure with the help of BC anything can be solved.

Do you still have the old actuator? If so I'd like to take a look at it. I've never disected before and find them interesting. LMK..
