I'm using ATE Type 200 fluid, granatelli slotted/dimpled rotors, EBC Bluestuff pads, and Goodridge stainless steel hoses. So far they seem to be good, but I haven't tracked them yet. Good on the...

Type 200 had the same wet and dry boiling points. It just doesn't have the blue dye.

My tool only reads/clears codes, shows values, and records data. It's just a Bluetooth adapter and my phone.

If you have a diagnostic tool that can perform special functions, then you can perform an auto bleed procedure that will purge the abs circuits (if I remember correctly). I don't have one of those...

ATE Type 200 is the yellow version and you can still get it. The blue is outlawed because it isn't yellow/clear. You can get a liter for $20. I think the Motul has a higher boiling point by about 60...

No iOS because I'm not paying $100 per year to be a developer. Plus I don't have a real device to test iOS apps on. I just do apps as a hobby.

I just took an 8 or 9 year old walmart battery out of my caprice this winter. Only problem is that it isn't a sealed battery, so spillage could be possible.

The gears in the trans are different to compensate. 6th is .50 I believe. I will get 24-25 depending on speed. I think 68mph gets me 25.
