LN Spin-On Oil Filter Adapter

It's been out for a while now, and I'm heavily considering it during my next oil change.

Has anyone experienced, or heard/read of any issues/failures associated with this?

Thanks!

Sounds like the actuator motor for the flap running. Try changing the setting on the control panel that directs the air through different vents.

Speedster Humps

Greetings,

I'm interested in tracking down a set of OEM Speedster humps for my '98, but have a question for those that have them. Do they mar/scratch the paint when installed?

Thanks!
