    Today I replaced the springs. I also ordered a new set of wheels and tires online. I ended up choosing Motegi and Continental tires. Will upload some pics once they are installed.

    Thanks to Elektroingenieur, finally figured out how to get rid of a 'permanent' P0102 that had stuck around ever since I turned the power on with the MAF sensor unplugged one lousy time a year ago.

    When I average 60 mpg, it’s an average of 60 mpg.

    Yes same ones. I got lucky with the last set as far as I know. I had already inquired to the seller on EBay and was told they didn’t know when they would be back in stock. So I snagged the last ones at HybridPit.

    good question, I have no idea. My commute is country side and there’s no signed posted to go 60 mph or faster. Some lithium users told me I can probably get 93mpg if I swap to nimh. But lithium allows you to use 90% of the battery capacity so I don’t buy into the hype, plus the lithium battery master told me it was “stupid” to compare mpgs.

    Hi everyone, for the past two days I laid 80 sq ft of Amazon sound deadener and in process of laying 60 sq ft of second skin mass loaded vinyl.

    I already MLVed my roof and floor and deadend my whole car. Just need to lay MLV in the trunk area.

    New plugs and coils today. 185,000…..I got the car at 72k, unknown prior history (even though car was Toyota certified).
    Was way easier than I thought. If the wiper assembly /come didn’t need to come off, would have been a 5 minute job.

    This weekend I replaced spark plugs (at 125k miles). No issues that prompted it. It feels maybe a bit smoother when starting, but nothing that noticable. I put in IXEH20TT and didn't change the coils.

    I first tried doing it when the engine was cold and they were stuck tight, but after a 20 min drive they came out no problems. Was planning to clean the EGR and throttle too, but too many mosquitos so that'll have to wait for another day :D

    After removing the old plugs, did you wait for the engine to cool before installing the new ones?
    If not, they may be just as hard to remove.
