    What springs did you use in the rear?

    Where did you buy the shocks?

    Does your catch can have the 50-micron filter like shown here?

    [​IMG]

    If it does, watch for backpressure which can blow seals just like a clogged PCV valve.



    You can remove the filter and just put a small wad of dollar store steel wool between the ports and the strainer.

    Next time I remove the can, I'll take a look and see if it has that bronzish-looking filter. Two things about that Aussie video: 1) he has a turbo diesel, and 2) none of the catch cans I've used has a pleated filter like that.

    ^The screw-in bronze filter is worse for restriction. But yes, being NA your piston blowby into the crankcase is less severe.

    You can rev the engine with the oil filler cap unthreaded and sitting on the filler neck. Simple way to see if there's pressure buildup.

    I've been running 40 psi for on my load e tires for 48,000 miles. Seems that the center is worn more than the edges. I'll get 60,000 out of them easily. Knowing what I know now, I'd go with 38.

    Installed the taco garage DMM and blacked out the badges on the Runner today. Both very simple processes and took about the same amount of time.

    In the last week I installed TRD CAI and the highly debated TRD Pro exhaust. Roof rack may be the next thing I do on my TRD Sport :D

    Installed a Sprint Booster, and cleaning up the Trail Running Boards that used to be on the previous 4Runner. Glad I hadn't sold this stuff off yet!

    While I haven't driven enough with it in the new 4Runner yet. I have one installed in both my FJ Cruiser and Ram 1500, and I can safely say that I love the Sprint Booster. Multiple settings to really dial in the responsiveness, and I haven't had any of the sudden acceleration issues that I started to run into with the Pedal Commanders that were installed on previous vehicles.

    I keep researching these things and am paranoid about the potential negatives that are floating around out there.
