What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

Fixed the front pass. window...

Here's how it goes.

My friend rolled down the window and couldn't roll it back up. It looked like the window slipped into the door, usually it sits at least 10-15mm above the weather stripping but this time it was at least 10-20mm below it. So I feared the worst. I then took off the door trim after 20 minutes and unplugged the harnesses from the door. Which then I preceded to remove the foam insulation... anyway

In order for the car to recognize that the door is closed the lock/window control module has to be connected. So when I reconnected that the window started working again. :huh:

I'm not sure if the connector was loose or there was some kind of short.

Only took my friend and I an hour to figure out. :angry:

At least the motor isn't dead.

:( Only temporary right? How much longer til' you can romp on it again?

I'm running the stock tune now.

I am very very very very tempted to put the ST back in, but I dont want to go on to motor number 5 :lol:

I can step on it now, just not above 14 psi.

Oh I see....just trying to give it a while before you put the ST back in or just overly paranoid like I am about everything most of the time? lol

More like ST is a shitty tune, and I have done things outside of what the tune is tuned for (that sounded weird).

I'll probably end up putting it in for a little bit though. I think its going to be a while before I can afford an IPD tune.

IPD surely does seem like the best way to go tuning wise....wish it wasn't so expensive. <_<

I must be the oddball that runs great on the ST tune and has had no problems with Oliver.....then again I didn't put down numbers yet, so yeah....only thing I can say is 10 - 12 psi feels like when Justin was stuck at 15/16 a while back due to a boost leak because of where his BOV was positioned. The torque is just awesome. No one would ever know it though, I is a slow driver....makes the rare spirited driving more fun. lol

On a related note, 55/partly cloudy today.....my red machine's going to be getting 2 or 3 power buffed coats shortly along with a full detail. I was thinking paint cleaner/polish/wax/quick detail wipe down.....not sure though, it just had paint cleaner and polish buffed on not too long ago. May do them again just because there's nothing else to do. lol

On a serious note though, I think I may have found a shitty, start from the bottom type of deal but I couldn't pass it up......had a 2nd int. last night so we'll see.
