You have one amazing car. JEALOUSY IS RUNNING THROUGH MY VEINS RIGHT NOW. I wish you lived closer so I can see your car in person.

Thanks for the complement, I really appreciate it
It's been fun to work on and finally show the changes.

Wow, that was quick! I don't think I've ever seen anyone mod one of these so extensively in such a short period of time. It looks good. When are you going to take it back to the dyno and/or track to see what kind of power improvements you've made?

I also like the idea of the threaded TPMS bomb. I built my first one, but it had a slow leak so I had to cut it open and start all over from scratch. I could have saved some $ on materials if i had thought of the threaded caps. I painted mine electric "F" blue.

RCB, I'd love to see your car in person......specific question with the Vais Tech ipod adapter.. is there a way to specifically select a song? for example can you input the song artist or song name and play it? Or do you need to have all your songs in playlists? I don't want to have to scroll through all the songs to select a specific song I like.

The car looks great!

Excuse my ignorance, but what is a TPMS bomb and what do it do?

Phi it looks like they are placing the sensor or reader, which is designed to go off if it varies from 36psi, into a container and seal it up, at probably 36 psi, so the sensor doesn't go off and half the !!! lights don't go off. just a guess though
