      I did some tinkering today and found my new adjustable cam gear was at off, I set it to -3 and then adjusted the throttle body and the car is running fantastic!

      The idle is around 850rpm and holding fine without any ISV hooked up which I'm really happy about.. I've ready so many conflicting reports on that and its definitely do-able if you just adjust the screw on the throttle body

      Yah I'll let you know how it goes, from the PDF manual it looks very straight forward. I made an offer on eBay for $155 shipped and they accepted, that is a steal of a deal if it works as advertised.

      Its nice because it has an accessory out for water meth or whatever else you might want to add and its closed loop temperature control which is great for the money.

      So thats why you're selling your Recaro's

      That EBC is great. Popular with the 1.8T guys. Uses the same solenoid as the AEM Tru-boost.

      One thing out, one thing in.. the grey velours will buy 1/3 of 1 Sportster seat

      I'm excited to try out the EBC, I've read good reviews.. and my PC-8 shipped so I can start getting everything wired in next week.

      Lucky bastid...i'm still waiting for them to finish my harness. Np on the idea, i'm glad someone got it. I posted that idea months ago in my thread & most never got it. The amounnt it cost to buy that fuse is pennys compared what it will do as far as cleaning up the wiring behind the dash. If you have 8 things to connect & each one draws .5v...it adds up.

      I hope it to have it in this week but I haven't ordered the 2 Speedhut gauges yet.

      Install is very easy, 3 wires - 12v, Switch Power, Ground.. then 8 connection on the board for both ground and power, 6 are switched 2 are unswitched (I was going to wire my alarm to one)

      The intercooler is from FrozenBoost, very reasonably priced and seems well made. I haven't tested it enough to say anything else yet
