Some more progress today, it was slow with the heat.
Thanks man, i picked them up from my buddy really cheap but every wheel has curb rash on them. When i went to install thwm today i found out i was also missing a hubcentric ring going to have to grab another one when i get rhe wheels refinished. Got pretty far today only have to finish off a few things in the trunk tomorrow the rain
stopped me dead in my tracks today.
And it seems my clutch switch decided to take a sh!t trying a master reset did nothing: car still won't start( gonna try swapping the break switch out tomorrow to verify its just the switch but it looks like ill be getting my first tow to the dealer Thursday the timing is impeccable
I am sure I will go bagged down the line maybe after the warranty is up because I will feel a lot more comfortable about it but for now I'm probably going to throw some nice CO's on. Im getting a Stage2 tune tomorrow and a custom exhaust hopefully next week, which reminds me to ask what you think of your downpipe so far and if your planning on getting a catback as well?
No go on the switch, its actually located behind the battery box in the engine bay and is extremely inaccessible waiting on the flat bed now
Thanks again man, your truck is looking awesome and I'm sure it has the go now that you flashed it, i would live to see it in person one day. As far as the down pipe my opinion changes everyday I love the reduction of turbo lag while driving, but the idle sound turns me off. Im going to keep my eye out at waterfest for a catted replacement.
so the car went to the dealer late friday, after talking to the service writer we decided that it would be beat if we waited for an (A) on monday. So at lunch i call becuase i havent heard anything yet ni answer i leace a message. I get a call back its not the switch it may be severe and out of warranty yada yada yada. I leave work a half hour early to i can talk to the tech in person and not the middle man. He tells me they swaped the switch, car ran for fifteen security seconds died and threw practically ever electrical code possible.
At this point they have no real clue to the problem but its looking like a MAJOR short somewhere or the ECM is toast ****ing A i haven't even had an oil change yet
Excuse the typos im on my phone
Oh man, that sucks... Keep faith tho sir! If it was easy, everyone would be doing it
Garage Sale Thread:
Got her home tonight tonight , turns out it was the clutch switch.... on the other end it had pulled out of the fuse box and shorted , dealer claimed it was "not a factory defect and due to the extreme suspension modifications so it was not covered under warranty " I didnt bother to argue, i informed the service writer that him tellinge my warranty was "void" was a bs blanket statement, i am aware certain aspects of my warranty are null and void but is still in full effect he looked puzzled. But since i was working on the car while this issue occurred i cant rule my own error out even though i didn't do ANY work near the fuse box .
Still have a few minor things to work out but........ it lays!
now i need the euro R bumper
I use http://www.willtheyfit.com/ its a great offset and rolling diameter calculator. you can play around and see what sizes are going to work as far as backspacing and poke, also if possible its best to choose a tire size that's closest to the oem rolling diameter to reduce speddo error.
