nice hardline work, did swoops do this or all on your own? Any reason you decided to mount on top instead of flush mount where the spare is?
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.
On a good note Jeff from airlift is the man, their customer service is top notch and therea a good chance i may still make waterfest.....
After washing my car yesterday i noticed both headlights had condensation inside anyone else with halogen lights have this issue?

Not to much to update, i woke up the other morning to find a new tenant has moved in. He held on the entire drive to work so i didn't have the heart to kill the tuff little guy
Normal ride height
Im considering running this basket i laying around that i had previously made for my mk3, not sure if im going to leave it as i have my eye on the thule 686BXT Atlantis 1600 cargo box but i think it might stay for a while
Next up is the Ross-Tech vcds, a few Brake upgrades, new rear swaybar, TyrolSport DeadSet Rigid Subframe Collar Kit, BETTER rear bags, and if theres anything left in the checking account I will be making the switch to nitrogen and eliminating the air compressor no more noise and no more draining the tanks and water traps
And FYI for anyone that cares, goodspeed told me straight out that they are no longer selling the 3" downpipe or fabricating anymore because they got scammed 3 or 4 times....sucks, i was really banking on that one for my 4motion
