Already got a message from Chris saying they'll replace it.

What I think I might need to do is add extra wrap to my downpipe. I had only wrapped the top part of the downpipe before, as a lot of people said not to wrap the 200 cell cat itself. But honestly I'd rather the cat be damaged over time than to keep losing FMIC hoses.

Mad Fiat is shredding tires and not even bothering to take names. Running good with the new hose.

Today I threw on a set of Vogtland springs. Stock shocks in front, Koni yellows (which I've had forever) remain in rear. Ride is really good. Only slightly lower than stock, though I have scraped already a couple of times just lightly. Not harsh like some lowered cars I've been in.

Also bled the brakes and flushed the fluid. Pedal is much firmer than it was. The hand pumped pressure bleeder I used helped a lot, EXCEPT for the fact it had no way to release pressure that I could find and I ended up getting brake fluid everywhere when I was done. Hopefully I got it off the paint quickly enough.... shall see.
