      After I was hit on my motorcycle it was never the same. I'd rather see my bike become useful then sit in my garage and collect dust. Fiancé's mustang is on its last leg and I think it's an appropriate move to make. I'd love to sell the bike and pay some bills but that's not happening.

      Scored a 3" maf today! My wiring buddy had a dozen laying around his garage.



      Yay!

      Got a good amount of info about wiring from my buddy. It was kinda common knowledge stuff that I just needed pointed out to me. My plan is to get a junkyard mk4 harness and use those wires to extend my harness. Hopefully I can get the Beetle so I can take my time.

      I just said **** it and found a used intercooler hose on ebay. Additionally I bought a 1.8t wiring harness so I can extend my wiring and keep it the correct gauge and color.

      What FMIC did you have?

      shtty ebay one. My upgraded SMIC probably works better than that.

      If I even had a nice FMIC, it wouldnt fit behind my bumper. Euro golf bumpers touch the rat support.

      Any how my smic claims to be rated up to 320. I don't plan on going any more and if I do Ill have to figure out a dual setup.

      I will keep that in mind if I choose to go back. I need to get my bay done first for Dubs on the board. I will be starting the wiring right after I get this current project finished this weekend.

      Ant, i think i asked you why you sold your front sway and you might have said because you went bags. But how does that change anything (laying out?). lmk

      If you remember, I had the hotchkis sway (under axle). When I would air out the sway would hit my control arm and stop me from going any lower.


      OP, just started taking the turbo out. Had to stand on the engine to break the nuts off the downpipe.

      You might need longer bolts for the exhaust manifold. I would try looking at that ASAP.

      No. Sway will still hit TT control arms.
