    Your PM's are full.

    Hey bud you seem to be a very knowledgable person on AZ so I figured I'd shoot you a question.

    I just installed a Konis on TL-S with stock springs. The rears are making an almost clunk like sound, everything is tightened to spec. Im convinced it has something to do with the assembly of the shocks. I drilled out the dust boot and top hat bushings. I also used the Koni supplied metal sleeve(I think this is the issue) with the type s bushings. The only thing I omitted was the additional washer above the bumpstop.

    Shock -> spring seat/dustboot(one piece) -> Koni white collar -> Spring -> bumpstop -> spring seat/dustboot -> Type S bushings -> Koni supplied sleeve -> top hat.

    From research it sounds like you've had the Konis with and without the sleeve, I wanted to get your input.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Do you have any images of when you installed the Stoptech Touring BBK? I was interested to see how they look and fit with stock TL rims.

    I've been having the same exact timing belt noise on my tsx v6 as you did on your TL. I'm very curious to hear what came of it.

    I did mine 4 months and 10k ago, and now it hasn't gotten any better, almost worse. The new OEM koyo tensioner pulley bearing looks like it's been throwing grease, so I got a new one and will replace it soon. Did you ever figure out what was causing your noise?

    Hey man I've read a lot of your posts regarding IB and I feel like I have a decent grasp on the subject, for the most part. I was wondering If i can get your opinion on my planned IB setup. I wanted to get 2 AE IB15's, which I know have gotten great reviews for IB, but their qts has changed in their new version, to a qts of 0.62 per sub. I was wondering if you think it's still a good idea to get a pair of IB15s, with a qts of 0.62 each, when my target qtc is 0.5-0.7 ish? Would you happen to know what the qtc would be, roughly? It's going in an Acura TL 2006 trunk, stock.

    i saw that you had some good posts and results about using an RF-BLD. Did you run yours balanced or unbalanced?

    Also, I tried using mine today and I never had any of the voltage lights light up. Do you know if yours lit up the 2.5V led?

    I was measuring 4V on the output rca but none of the voltage lights were on the main RF-BLD device (only the power led).

    Hey there. I talk to you every so often over on DIYMA. Anyways, I'm going to drop a HAT L4SE in as the center channel. I was wondering how deep the speaker you fit in your center was and if you had to make any modifications to fit the 6.5 in the dash. Any help would be awesome. If you could take a second and send a picture of your driver in the center id be extremely grateful.
    PM me?
