For OEM replacement, get the Advance Auto one. Order online for store pickup. Use discount code TRT41 or TRT30 to make it cheap.

For OEM replacement, I went with this. Last time I researched the battery it was a rebranded westco battery. It is also sealed.

If you got the battery show in pictures there, that's not a sealed battery, and you need to vent it just like OEM.

Good point. I did vent mine, but the description does say AGM. Now I wonder what it really is.

Will a Square top manifold work on a 99 head without vvt?

It will bolt up because they use the same flange. A squaretop has nothing to do with VVT so it will function properly.

Expect a loss in torque and power in the midrange and gains in power way up top. Not worth it unless you're competitively racing tbh

My brother was argueing with me and said the flange was different. It would be for him and be is boosted on 12 lbs. Thanks for verifying that for me.

VICS and VTCS manifolds are swappable between years as are the exhaust manifolds and after market headers (if you have an EGR block off or adapter).....same flange.

If you have an Interstate Batteries near you, check them as well. They clear out "blemished" or "rebuilt" batteries for like... $40.

I’m trying to calibrate my Autometer A/F gauge to my MS3 in tunerstudio. Gauge reads anywhere from 12-13 and MS says 14.7 at Idle. Autometer uses a 0-4v output but Tunerstudio doesn't have a specific setting for Autometer. Any Idea what I should be changing in my .ini file to get them sync?

I think in advanced settings within Tunerstudio you can set your signal voltage range manually. Let me know if you can't find it and i'll dig up the documentation i have.

obviously that's not what you would do on an oil pan, so the grinding and filing are his options.

primary reason some owners go with 45 sidewall instead of 50 (on 15s?) is it mostly for aesthetics or are they actually considering how the diameter change affects gearing?

and does anyone elses car feel faster on 50/15 as opposed to 60/14? or is it just me..
