Here is the outcome from the body shop. They couldn't fix the problem without cutting the mount and then re-welding it back on. They wanted to charge me 600 bucks..

I explained to them it has worked for 3 years with no issues.. So the car is back with me, I will be putting the body parts back on tonight and tomorrow for the Modern meet on Saturday. Then i will be taking anoher look at it after the busy weekend.

Well I have offical 300 miles on the turbo, and the car is running great. I have a few things to mess with still..

I was able to drive the first time at night with the new G1 retro fits and wow, the output is great.

I have an issue with me SRT cluster with the blue LEDs.. I might need to make some changes its hard to view the needles now.. but all and all the car is doing well.

Will post up better pics on here later.

Well got home a bit early today from work. Decided to mess with the Turbo timer again today. I have tried to figure out why it won't turn on. I have tested all my wires and it seems good. I checked my E-brake switch and it seems good. I disconnected the wire and deactivated my E-brake, but the Brake light on my SRT cluster is still on. So I'm guessing that there is a short somewhere. Any ideas??? The timer worked twice since I installed it. WHile I was driving my brake light turned off and it turned on. I"m guessing there is something, but not sure. Has anyone had an issue with their SRT cluster in a non-srt with the brake????


Also after I put the car back together. I decieded to sanp a few shots. I have a meet tomorrow morning from 8-10 called Coffee and Cars. I'll take a few snaps when I"m there.

Enjoy!!! :thumbup:

Thanks Mike

Through the whole trip my turbo timer would not turn on... So..I'm now looking for a new turbo timer. I found one on ebay - black pen style with blue LEDs from Apexi, but its really cheap for NIB. I'm wondering if its legit?? I really dont care for the name just want something to countdown the cooling period and to work.
