Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: 8/20/18 update

Shiney gauges. You plan on doing your cluster with LED's? And yes the dual is better then the frog eyed ones. Keep your eyes on the road better with them there. I deleted and reuploaded a better pictureof the gauges from my last post. I didn't have my camera setting correct on my phone which is why...

Re: Questions about boost, now with even worserer issues

You must have a boost leak. You need to book leak test.

What psi were you pushing with the stock intercooler before..?

I know the stock intercooler sucks but not enough to make that big a difference.

Re: 2003 SRT DD

And here I was dismayed to notice (a few weeks ago during a lighting check) that the front side markers don't blink with the turn signals. I always thought that they did. Now I really wish that I had the BUX repeater turn signals on the front fenders. Back on topic- why would you want to do this? I...

And here we are. I decided to just screw it on and paint the pillar to match. Didn't feel like doing the custom mold it make it look one piece. Forget all that. I ripped out so much old wiring. Redid the wiring and all is good. I already love this setup. Much easier to view the 2 gauges. https://upl...

Re: Manny's 96 turbo coupe: 8/14/18 update

I had that pod in one of my old Neons. It made for a bit of a blind spot, but it wasn't terrible. It didn't take long to acclimate to it. I actually like the look of the frog pod better, but I can see how it would block the other gauges a bit. That could get annoying, having to tilt your head to re...

Don't bother. You won't gain anything from putting bigger injectors in your car. It's worthless and a waste of time.

I think it would look a lot better without the black on the lip. I'd leave the black on the bumper itself, but keep the lip red. The new intercooler looks nice. Finally someone said something about that. I've been debating removing the black. It's just old plastidip. I'm sure I could remove it easy...

Check your grounds... I the only ground that I can think of being maybe bad would be the one on the lower starter bolt which goes to negative cable. Maybe me painting the trans made it useless. But I didn't get paint or anything in the side the ground is on. Either way I haven't tested that ground ...
