      it definitely sucks but the replacement will be here in the morning, I'm just praying that it will get me going again. On the bright side i did have some extra time to finish up the trunk though

      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 did the hardlines myself . It's not difficult but there is definitely a steep learning curve to overcome . I went to see swoops ( Greg) about six weeks ago for the frame notch. They did a great job and were very professional for working out of Greg's garage. They are a great group of guys and would let them work on my car anytime. the tank was mounted above the floorboard because it simply wouldn't have fit without raising the false floor. I have a new tank in the works but after show season ill prob pick up a few two or three gallon tanks and mount them underneath the car to free up the entire trunk again. Until then I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Underneath the floor i still have my spare, 50ft air hose and plenty of room for a survival tool bag i just need to get a set of replacement bags in case of a blowout This is my first time doing anything air related on a car so I'm still completely new and learning.

      wow, well i commend you on the effort, it looks great so far. Takes a lot of time and money im sure especially to have all those spare parts on hand once its all done too

      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?

      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

      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 .
      Dealer :1

      Still have a few minor things to work out but........ it lays!

      Im having a hard time trying to figure out what size wheel and tire to get for my Tig i am thinking 18x8 225/45R18. I only have about 800 bucks to spend on the total package.

      Tire rack has a good selection, these caught my eye i think they would look awesome and the price is right too you may need a small spacer up front with the 45 offset. , the modded tigs thread has alot of good info and tire sizes and wheel offsets

      http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Price

      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.
