      Shhh Im trying to figure out the best way to do it and keep the spare. I may have to cut out the center of the spare well and drop a skinny down there, or just use one 12 gallon tank! Im not going to make it known untill it is done, So someone cant beat me to it, as its never been done.... As far as I know

      So today I was able to get into the drivers side wiring and tucked it away...it's pretty clean now...was able to re route the harness that the maf is connected to around and behind the master cylinder and tucked the main harness connection under the front rail.
      Here are a few pics...poor quality because I just shot them outside in the dark...with my cell...so um?? Sorry bout that

      Ok so tucked the evap under the manifold... There is a small bracket under there that if you take the little vacuum hose out of it's little plastic ring, you can then snap the sensor onto the top and it'll be in near oem position...pics?

      You bet..night time again though sorry
      Hope this makes sense...

      Nice. Did you spray it still on the car or pull the motor and spray it, or take it off the motor and spray it? lol

      I saw your old car at Cult Classic this year. They had it parked right as you walked into the show. Thats a pretty good drive down here from Maine tho.

      Did some more cleaning... Better battery install, and cleaned up its wiring. Also removed that felt/engine blanket stuff on the firewall.
      I also took the engine cover studs at the valve cover and replaced them with regular length short ones
      and
      I cut the fire blanket stuff along the reflecting metal lined area...so the heat is still under control.but the fire wall is clean now so I'm happy.plus behind the brake booster and master cylinder there is TONS of space for tucking wires

      to those who dont know, my car is 130 miles away from me, with no ECU and unmovable...

      i was getting a reflash, and my ECU crashed... it went into "protected mode" and i sent it today to unitronic HQ.

      i had to get the car towed from the event to my cousin's house. hopefully i'll get my ecu by next weekend's, rent a car, drive the 2hrs, pick my car, re clean the bay, THEN i'll take pics

      Looks like I've started a little trend lol (sarcasm can you tell?)

      Um? So I would really think about removing stickers, like the one on your valve cover... I mean its not a huge problem, but that little sticker tells what motor you have, and that in turn makes it easier to work on...,

      I dunno I guess it does make that section look nice! I'm going to tear it off tomorrow!

      Dude I'm so sorry! Do you know why it went?

      I'm thinking about going to my apr dealer and having them flash me back to stock before I get my turbo flash... I'm worried it'll freak out... So you were uni flashed, went in for an update? And it didn't like it?

      Hope you get everything back and in order!

      Dude knowing you, you'll pull the motor, scrub every crevice, tuck every wire and then a month later do it again!
      You get down on cleaning things up! Like your audio install...and your battery relocation, I'm gonna tell you I expect to see a nice execution from you!

      How long til you get your car back? Pm me the details of what happened asap!
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      Glad all is well! But yeah I'm going to probably go to my apr dealer and have them re load my factory program... I had heard that this could happen...didn't realize the ecu was so smart/safe
