    So it looks like my 60-1 may be on its way out (I'm getting oil seepage from around the turbine housing).

    B5 Garage
    I've been pouring through the search engine for awhile looking for an answer and I've come up empty. I'm trying to find out if AHA and ATQ 30V V6 heads are interchangeable. Beyond that, I'm also trying to find out if the driver and passenger sides differ. From what I can tell, the castings...

  10. BFgoodrich comp T/A KDWS opinions

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Has anyone tried these tires, esp in 205/55/16 size? I'm looking for pretty good performance, stiff sidewalls, and a quiet ride too, especially as they wear. I was considering the fm901's, but I get the feeling that people w/ the higher aspect ratios think the sides are soft, and the tire...
