    The underside of my turbo inlet pipe (and dripping onto the turbo outlet) is coated in wet oil. The turbo oil lines look dry. Where is this oil coming from? Not really wanting to go into service position to find out.

Specifically the drip is directly below the location of the gear lever. Does anyone know whats behind this sheeting or is there a labelled...

    How much do you think it will cost to fix this, and what part needs to be replaced? The only free parking lot on my college is like mud and gravel with craters the size of jupiter and jagged rocks the size of K-2. There's a leaking/buzzing sound coming from my car ever since it bottomed out on a...

    Anyone have a pic of the 5.5 taken from underneath? Preferrably stock, but I'll take what I can get. Looking to see the muffler and resonator in line of the exhaust system w/o having to put mine up on stands (I'm at work). Thanks for your help

  14. Wheel and Tire Forum
    I just put on my Falken St-115's 225 45 17's on my new wheels. I noticed this sound when I'm driving slow of road grit peppering the underside of my car. Is this because the tires are new? It's wierd. I guess these tires are pretty sticky. Will this go away once I put a few more miles on them?
