anyone have any long term updates on the pipe bomb, like leaking air after a couple months or something?

Ok so I now got my set of 4 TPMS sensors and I needed them linked to the car correct? How much should I expect to pay for this from my Lexus dealer? Is their any reason why I couldnt have these install in my 20" rims instead of making the "tpms bomb"??

ok I made this bomb thing but it doesn't work? bought some sensors off ebay, had lexus program it to the car, made the bomb, stuck them in. (It had low tire sign this whole time) and then I pressurized the bomb, now it says check system instead of low tire. Someone please help me. I tried the initialize tire pressure. Drove around and the light is still on. Anything I missed?

We're supposed to stuff bomb with something to keep sensors from bouncing around. May be a stupid question but do we stuff it until there's no room left or do we leave a bit of space. I plan to use microfiber towels. Thanks for any help you can give-----LJ
