Trust me, this pvc cement is meant to hold a lot more pressure then 35lbs. Mine will hold till i cut it open.

Both of the bombs i made leaked within a week after leaving it in the trunk.. I am using black pvc piping instead of the white ones, so I am not sure if this have any effect.

What no mention of HP gain from this mod?

I counted three stickers, that's 15HP at least.

Would it be easier or cheaper? Would it be easier to take all the sensors out from the oem tires or would it be cheaper just to buy sensors and send them to the tire place before they mount my tires.

Not all rims accept our brand sensors. You would need to ALSO buy iForged tmps adapters IF that is the case.

It would be cheeper to pull out the sensors from the oem wheels rather than buy new depending on the individual shop prices for unmounting AND if you want remounting/balancing of the tire.

Is there no way to turn the tire sensor off by pulling the fuse. I am guessing that will disrupt some other things..

No... i myself thought i could live with a little warning lite UNTILL i realized the the main display ALSO says 'check something' and doesnt go away... SO... i figured i'd put the spare back in the car and put them in there, the spare adds weight so it may not be perfect for racing but since ive gone the VIP styin route the extra weight in the back makes the drop look better *placebo effect*

BUT this is a pipe bomb thread, best for racers. So... lets not take this too far OT as this is a DIY now and we dont wanna confuse others.

Dismounting should only cost about $40 total for all for tires. $40 can't even get you one TPMS sensor.

If you sold your stock wheels then your TPMS are gone too. They're mounted inside the rims.
