So I’ve got my Sultans Of Spark Coil Packs sitting in a box at the house. I can’t hardly wait to put them on, but I just need a little bit of time to get it done. Oh, and I needed something else too…replacement hood struts. As I found out a short while ago, mine were both blown. Sometimes the hood would hold open for a few minutes, sometimes it would slam shut immediately. Not good material for making a video or doing an hours worth of work underhood.
Amazon had new hood struts for my car for 20 bucks. SRT4Ghoul was kind enough to hold the hood open for me while I got the new struts in. All told, maybe 5 minutes of our combined time consumed to knock that out. Basic maintenance like replacing a couple of hood struts shouldn’t be ignored. After all, what good is it to have a beautiful, badass engine, if you can’t even pop the hood to do an oil change?
