This took longer than I thought. If anyone has any suggestions or feel something needs to be changed, then gladly post away. Seeing some of the same questions starts to get old after a while.

I know I missed some stuff so add away.

You're doing the lord's work sir but you know as well as I do....the questions are just now getting started. What oil do I use? Do I need a catch can? Will X avoid my warranty? You know how it goes on car forums once new people start buying cars and finding the internet.

This is extremely helpful. Sometimes it’s hard to find threads, even if you know they exist. Unless you have the exact term or date, the search bar isn’t the greatest. Thank you for bookmarking all of these!
