      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!

      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

      How about extending the lines and hoses down to just inside the area the windshield washer reservoir was? Its gonna be a pain to re fill, but if you made a quick release bracket it'd be easier to pull up and out. Like a cotter pin or whatever
