I'm pretty sure they're specific to the transmission. Try www.car-part.com and specify manual in your search. You can also just take it to a different dealer and ask them nicely. Some don't mind flash ...

I've been hearing a slight tick coming from the engine at cruising speeds. It's really subtle and can't be heard at idle, but it's driving me nuts. Everything's new, so it shouldn't be happening.

Ah yeah. The condenser was in front of the radiator. I've been told the entire HVAC unit under the dash weighs about five pounds less for the non-AC version. As much as I like weight reduction, I'm no ...

The drained AC system weighed almost exactly 25 pounds, but that was strictly under-hood parts. There's still a condenser and related parts under the dash.

"It doesn't get that hot in Western Washington," they said.

"Yeah, I don't really need AC in the car," I said.

"Weight reduction FTW," I said.

The Slips look nice. I've always been a fan of their simplicity.

My map says it's 2717 miles to Carlisle from my house. That's pretty daunting, but I'd consider it. Maybe next year.

After a long track day in my SRT, the factory red coating actually burned to a dull, faded finish on the front calipers. I had to repaint them to bring back the color.
