And a good, simple, non-upgrade, brake pad replacement walkthru?

Dont laugh!
I have a buddy with a shop who tells me people of the fairer sex pour antifreeze into their windshield wiper fluid resiv. or vice-versa at least once a week and then wonder why the paint is peeling from their hood?!?!?!?!

What about an acronym list -- as a relatively new person, I refer to this often. Looked in the sticky section, and couldn't find it easily:

You might want to include a link to an SYE intall, such as http://www.stu-offroad.com/engine/sye/sye-1.htm That is unless you think it doesn't belong in Boot Camp. It probably wouldn't be beneficial to have a link to every single writeup on Stu's site...

Again, awesome thread. I'm contemplating an 8.8 swap, and this has significantly helped my search times!
