Replaced the DCT fluid today. I think most people say it takes 1.7Qt's but I think mine was like.... 1.5Qts. Was able to pick it up for $24/qt.

It was sitting at ride height and trickling out so I pumped a couple more squirts in for good measure and threaded the nut on quickly. Drove around and didn't feel anything weird so it should be G2G.

Invest in one of these, you'll thank yourself later.

Got in my DEPO Machs. They're not perfect, but they'll work. Better than being smashed to bits.

Did your name change? I could have sworn it was something else.

Yes lol, it used to be foxmustangman.

I'll definitely be buffing them out. The other lens that you can't see in this pic is much worse than the one pictured.

Clutch pedal spring replaced with OEM spring. I hate working under the dash of the focus.... Ended up having to take the whole pedal assembly apart.

Also got my 180 degree thermostat and was able to replace the stuck open 192 degree one on the SVT. Should get rid of my P0125 code I get and acuy be able to use the head now.

No worries. I just wanted to make sure it was you and not some imposter.

Things didn't change with the MK3. Laying on your back in your drivers floorboard is no fun

I'm a small guy too.

We had a good ole time at SPIs house.

I got a few things on, hood struts, Mountune filter, Steeda symposer delete, and a sharkfin antenna. Riles wrapped a header, we pulled the ecobeast, and even had some bonus fun after.
