Default 2010 - 2013 (Gen 4) DIY Guides

I thought it might be handy to have a compiled list of links to the various Gen 4 DIY guides, it just makes it easier to find stuff instead of searching or digging through the DYI forum manually.

It's obviously a work in progress but I hope other folks will find this useful and maybe we can get a sticky?

Thanks, really good collection.

FYI: The "HK-Nav ground mod Hack - Peaty" leads to a thread that has an invalid link unfortunately. Is there an alternative link?

I've replaced the link, it's a PDF download from this site. If anyone knows the author let me know.

Great stuff! I have one dumb, newby question. How much oil does the 2.5 take on refill, filter and all? The book says 4.4 quarts, but is a little vague, and the 3.6 takes more that it says in the book.
If no one answers before next week, I will post the answer when I do my first OC. Thanks.
