First is the "lunchbox" delete
Cost: $15
Time: 30 minutes
Ahh the Rice a Roni quick fix!

Figured you'd like that, your hose clamps were more creative.

There are some GOOD cheap ideas, like Home Depot/Lowes supplies that can make front lips or scuff plates for the door sills.

5 bolts & you have 19lbs in your hand. Then you'll see the oil feed hole that needs to be plugged. There is a bsd plug & egr delete in the bst right now, super cheap.
