We would like to give you a quick update on the container. The container left Tokyo on June 14th and will be arriving on time June 24th to Long Beach Port. Please give U.S. customs a few days for clearance. We will ship products out immediately once arrived to our warehouse. If you have any questions, feel free to call us. Thank you.

small update for today

took off the wheel well plastic and moved the engine harness so i would have clearance. i techflexed it and then wrapped it in electrical tape. i moved it up and somewhat behind the top most metal i saw. if i see rubbing marks on it ill wrap it a couple more times in tech flex and electrical tape and it should be fine.





i had to downgrade to a 4awg to connect my 2nd battery. i planned on routing my 0awg underneath the car, but didnt see any spot to route it through and it was too thick to route on the drivers side inside the car. if anyone has any idea on how to run it underneath please let me know. i guess ill have to route it into my sideskirt after the body work if there is no other way.

i was really surprised that i could fit 2 3/8" air lines, 4awg wire, rca's, ethernet cable, and a couple remote power lines on the drivers side.

techflexed the airline to resist heat


the stuff thats gonna be hooked up tomorrow! (a nice birthday gift to myself)
the wiring for the ecu/relays/compressors shouldnt take but 15min. the rest is just plug and play.

I would seriously recommend not using "push-in" fittings right off your bags(more tendency to leak)...and definitely don't use conventional airlines right up to the bags in the wheel wells. Use some high pressure hydraulic lines in the wheel well area as that will take the most abuse for movement and road debris. Steel braided lines are "ok" if need be. Just looking out for ya...as I did that setup a loonnngg time ago and it caused many headaches.
