    How are you making them?
    Water jet I hope, have to find a shop with availability in the next day or two. Other wise by hand. That gives me a good ballpark to shoot for.

    If you can find someone to cut them, I'll take a 56mm.

    I’m out. The car has a serious hot start issue.

    I drove to get fresh gas with no issue. Get back home and park it in the driveway. I had to wait a while for the car to start so I could pull it back into the garage. Once in the garage it failed to start again. F me.

    Not sure what platform you are running, but on my car and I've seen this on other cars too....the Engine Temp Sensor wiring is rerouted to a switch on the dash. The driver can break the continuity to the sensor by opening the switch. The PCM will then richen the mixture for starting and allow for easier warm starts. Then after the engine is started, close the switch and the PCM will now read the temp sensor properly. Maybe not applicable to you, but hope it helps.

    This is cool. You can also switch it on the dyno to dump a few horsepower.

    Might want to be careful with switches on the dash that could be used to affect power even if there is no ill intent...
