    Cut-away of fuel filter after 13 years

    I took the plunge and replaced the fuel filter today. It was quiet therapeutic. I meant to do this several years ago. After thirteenth years on a 4000 mile car I was curious about the integrity of the inside. I cut the filter in two pieces exposing the paper element. I would highly suggest...

    Toe link boot install

    I just installed GT 101’s toe link boot covers. Although they fit well I had issues getting the compression rings to stay on. The boots are a tight fit so I left them off. Anyway before and after pic. A fix folks might consider. I would imagine most GT’s by now have them deteriorated.

    My GT is turning 3;700 miles. Each year regardless of miles I change the Oil and oil filter. Other fluids to include brake,coolant,and superchatger oil a few years ago. Is there a recommended time interval for changing the fuel filter on a low mileage car?

    I recently noticed that my rear tie rod links' boots have cracked. Obviously,not thru use/wear as my GT only has 3,000 miles. I read the threads on the control arms and that several of you used silicone compressible tape over the damaged rubber boots. If any other ideas floating around please offer.
