Re: Any reason to keep the resonating chamber on intake?

I figured out a few things that were askew , now it seems pretty solid. I've had a low oil pressure light on idle or low rpm, and after that was inadvertently solved via another repair, I get a p1282 , my check engine light only comes on after some time of driving, ...

I will say, do not use an ebay branded clutch.
I agree- that's why I posted the link for a Mopar replacement part.

I bought both a Mopar clutch master and clutch slave and plan to have them installed in the spring when I have my annual oil change.

I prefer the Mobil1 filter myself with the synthetic media in it... oil quality seems to be good out to 10k miles at a time (using synthetic oil as well)... but I agree, just as procey as the K&N.

Putting a new oil pan on too? I believe I only paid around $60 or so for a new oil pan if I remember right. It was a OEM Mopar unit too. But boxed under a different brand. I thought might as well since I am doing the gasket. Plus my drain plug was messed up from previous owner.
