    Replaced OEM AC Compressor & Dehumitifier @ 96k. It was starting to stick and had a lot of resistance. It'd cut out when the compressor itself got too hot as well.

    With the AC on, feels like I gained 30HP! So much less engine load, smoother idling. Even with only 800 miles on my Damond side mounts, it is surprisingly calm and quiet at idle now. :)

    I hope for an MPG boost, too.

    Had pretty good luck with the hole saw and getting the tweeters in there. Rerouted the wires for my boost and oil pressure gauges through the panel behind the glovebox.

    Found a TR6 for sale locally for $50. Which of course ended up with me getting a new grille, crash bar, and cxracing kit from therpmstore during memorial day sales. :) My CPE TMIC will be posted in the for sale section. This should make my car way happier this summer.

    Fully removed my Damond OCC and blew it out/rinsed it with B12. Holy SHIT there was literally a cup of thick sludge that wouldn't drain with gravity alone. Prob gonna do that every couple oil changes going forward.

    Damn, that’s probably just a good idea to do every once in a while.

    Brake job! Installed EBC yellow pads and stop tech high carbon rotors on all corners. Initial impression is nice note no squeel when cold I shall see how they are after break in. Time for blabbering: naturally I Iubed those caliper pins up great, but one of the boots on the pin is real coming close to end of its life o think with Canadians winters and neglected lube on the pin slider for the winters we've had. Couldn't get it seated properly but did get the slide through I think it's time to invest in the damond caliper slides hear good things.

    As I ran out of time yesterday today the brakes and clutch got bled with ate typ 200, as I was due for a fluid flush so full bleed was done. I love the feeling of fresh fluid! Next brake service the damond caliper bushings are definitely going on all four corners.
