1080 Kbps? That's 1 MB per second so 1 song is like 200 MB jeez that's some insane audio bro.

Yeah, whatever happened to FLAC or OGG? I'll roll with those any day. Unfortunately my REC only does mp3/wma/wav.

It's different then you would think. Kbps is kilobits per second not kilobytes There are 8 bits in a byte so it isn't the same. There are 1024 kilobytes in a megabyte. And 1024 megabytes in a gigabyte.

Your right I was thinking of KBps not Kbps, my bad. I don't generally use Kbps since I do system system side engineering and not network side lol. I have always seen it referred to as kbit/sec, maybe just to avoid confusion lol. So 1 song is about 25 MBs which is not bad.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Replaced plugs, PCV valve, cleaned and oiled K&N, changed front and rear diff oils and transfer case. A couple weeks ago I also had to repair the high pressure fuel line that supplies the fuel rail. If y'all notice some "less than desired" fuel economy or catch a faint hint of fuel fumes (especially in the morning @ sub freezing temps), I'd strongly recommend inspecting the 2 connections of the high pres braided stainless line, one on the firewall @ the hard line and the other @ the fuel rail inlet. There's an o-ring in either end that creates the seal on the respective hard lines that fails, dealer couldn't locate a p/n for either the braided section or o-rings but instead offered up the ENTIRE FUEL LINE ASSEMBLY!!! The aforementioned assembly included every fuel line from tank to rail, obviously I didn't need or want that, but if need be I could harvest the section that had failed. I decided to tear into it and see if it was in fact just the o-ring or if there was actual physical damage to either end of the sealing surfaces. Fortunately it was visibly obvious once I had it apart and got eyes on that the o-ring had failed, apparent fold and crease while still in the line. I used a small pick with an angled end to retrieve the o-ring and further inspection once it was out and in my hand revealed severe cracking and disintegration. Finding the correct replacement o-ring proved to be a task in itself as well, my local NAPA couldn't match it and the rest of the major auto parts players followed suit. I ended up @ a local company that does custom hydraulic lines, NatGas hoses, and various other fittings, couplers, and connectors. They couldn't match the exact material and size but were able to match the size with a fuel stable replacement, that would have to do. It took some patience and finesse to get the new ring into the channel properly but it is possible. Reinstalled the fuel line, pressurized the system, and inspected for leaks... Success!! If anyone encounters this type of leak, I hope this has helped shed some light and present a possible solution other than the insane alternative offered up by my local dealers parts dept that came with a price tag north of $400!!

Apologies for insufficient intel in the back story, It's an 06 3.7 Laredo. I've looked at and wrenched on numerous other WK's and JK's and they've all got the same fuel line setup, the larger engines just have a double fed fuel rail but all with the same style connections so I assume they'll all be susceptible to such failures. You can check for leaks by just having the key on so the pump is engaged and fuel system pressurized, then manually grasp the feed line at the 90* elbow and lightly push in and out and apply slight pressure side to side, if the seal is starting to go, or is already perished, you'll see obvious drips of fuel. I didn't investigate mine immediately due to our sub zero temps when I started noticing it, when it warmed a bit I got into it and by then I had a sizable mess on the valve cover and intake mani from the dirt and other under hood contaminants. If yours is leaking freely you'll likely have the same type of indicators. Hope this helps either now or for future reference.

Rgr. Hopefully you never need the intel but if you do, you've acquired the knowledge...
