    What did you do to your Blackwing today?

    Washed and detailed the bejesus out of it. Looks like I have about 4 days of good weather comming to enjoy a clean car.

    Spring Mountain Trip

    My last good M/C crash was at Spring Mountain in the winter, cold slicks are hard, so is the ground. Got to drive home with my arm in my t-shirt made sling and a broken collarbone. Beware of cold tires.

    Jacking up your Blackwing

    I found this as well and aborted trying to jack the car up as I started to see this point flex. I suspect this was for frame manipulation during production. The bolt that goes through the aluminum front subframe is a solid lift point.

    Pulled the Tapout Bluebelt Trigger

    Got the CEL on day 2 at just over 100 miles on the car since the pipes installed. I drive 125 miles / day, so see how it goes the next few days commuting to work. Hope it resets and clears. The new Cats and pipes still giving off a strong odor when hot, so hope they just need to cook a few...

    Pulled the Tapout Bluebelt Trigger

    Think I may hold off to do the JB4 until I have the TB, so I can do the TB, plugs and JB4 at the same time. The hard part is out of the way at least. Yeah, it would have been easier with a lift, but duable from the garage floor.

    Pulled the Tapout Bluebelt Trigger

    CT4-V Blackwing on E30 = 546 whp

    Copper plugs will need to be changed much more frequently, the OEM iridium plugs will last much longer, but they may not be the best heat range for higher boost levels. The trick is to find one step colder iridum plugs, been looking myself, but not found anything yet.

    CT4-V Tools and Parts for DIY oil change

    No difference noticed. The UPF63R is just a little higher quality with a thicker shell, possibly slightly better filter media (from what I have read). https://champfiltration.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Champ-March-NPI-PH1500.pdf

    Okay, I just checked again, I use the UPF63R (upgraded filter) which is 74mm 14 flute, it appears the blue PF63 is 15 flute.

    Edited: The blue PF63 uses a 74mm 15 flute wrench. The black UPF63R uses a 74mm 14 flute wrench. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAIB1SC
