    The big difference is the engine mounts which were totally destroyed. I'm toying with the idea of taking a pressure washer to the underside of the car; There is a line of satanic black diarrhea running from the engine backwards. It's been needing to get done for a while.

    I also did the engine oil pump nut fix, but it was completely superfluous. The nut was on there tight with some loctite. Once it was loosened, I unfortunately didn't have a choice. I think there's a higher chance of it coming undone now that I've "fixed" it.

    Putting in Liqui Moly instead of Mobil 1 made a difference. I can't believe I ever put Mobil 1 in my car.

    The baffle itself I'm still meh on for the one time a year I take it to a track day. Had to buy at torch and suffer through the heat trying to get it on. Not really worth it; Maybe just overfill with oil? I dunno, next track day it'll be good. Next job is going to be all the bushings in the rear end.

    That's where I'm at with the oil pan baffle. I'll probably track it 3-4 times a year but afraid that either 1. Some moron on the road totals my car or 2. I don't get to track it as much as I want.
