Maybe i have to replace the other one too even though its not throwing codes?
Maybe try measure its voltage on the other side to see if there are within the spec.

hope you can get it all working soon

Default Nothing much new

Not sure if anyone here is experiencing this aside from me but a couple of my rear bumper clips decided to let go and create a small gap on the side of my car.

Tried bending them down but it didn't work that well, so i got some 3m tape, cut it in half length wise and into small sections, then with some plastic pry tools i wedged the plastic latches down and shoved the 3m strip above it to hold it down. Works for the moment. Just a boring update for now just posted just in case anyone else might need a cheap fix

So I just came back from an alignment and I got them to set the front toe values to 0 L/R. It was -0.05 L and 0.05 R before so I'm crossing my fingers hoping it works.

On a side note, surprise surprise the alignment guy told me my rear pads were getting low and they definitely are even though my fronts are still very meaty. I presume it's the caliper again... might consider a brake upgrade next year.

Default New pads

Rear pads toast, maybe due to more caliper seizing idk. Bought some Akebono Performance Ceramics for the rear to see how they perform. Rotor is running a bit hot on the inner ring so I'm gonna check it tomorrow.

Default Windshield moulding





Finally replaced my windshield moulding. Thing was dry rotted and fallig off on the highway. Idk what the precious owner did but there was a ridiculous amount of rubber and glue I had to remove... I hope it wasn't some sort of windshield seal

Great build, and great to see a modded IS in Ontario.
Hopefully I can try to keep up to your build. Been reading for a while and finally decided to join the forum and maybe start my own build thread

Also how is the ISF steering ecu holding up, really thinking of getting one.

Thanks man, appreciate the kind words The ISF Steering ECU been good so far, no problems. Gives you a little bit more road feedback and tightens up the steering a bit making it more direct. One of the bigger benefits is that it changes "pwr" on the ECT switch to the ISF's sport mode which has some benefits for the traction control unit as it lets you slide a bit more and doesn't cut power so abruptly.

nope, why would it? It's just adjusting the process for feedback and input for steering as well as processing the traction loss differently.

I've been running the 08-10 ISF on my AWD no problems. For approximately 2 years now. If the ECU is brand new you will need to get it calibrated. The one I have was used, and never got it calibrated.
