popped out both headlight assemblies in order to seal up the HID's & the wires a little better with a combo of silicone, electrical tape, and cut up ziplock bags... :lol:

Installed 3BarRacing MBC. WOW what a difference. I do not want to bend a rod so what is the best safe action for a MBC?

I have it pretty long right now and I think it is boosting to 15psi so I need to turn it down to 12psi.

Do not boost under 2K RPM? or only boost in 2nd,3rd and 4th gear? What do you guys recommend (I do not want to hear take out the MBC)

Replaced ignition coil.

Installed trunk spoiler.

Placed order for some tune up parts.

Confirmed that the service light re-set tool won't work with this ECU/cluster combo. F%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%ck.

Step one: Remove service light bulb

Step two: Be happy!

If you can bend a rod with 15psi on a stock turbo, I'll give you a dollar.

You owe me 2 dollars (I bent 2 rods).

Located the MELBUS cable in the trunk and rewired the power plug to match the polarities of my iMIV module. It's so simple it's embarrassing to write about it. iMIV should arrive today, I'm pretty stoked.

MELBUS and power in ze trunk, prepared from factory

Original configuration. Green - Unswitched, Yello - Switched, Black - Ground.

Rewired. Hardest part was getting the metal contacts to unlatch from the plug.

how much do I owe you?

On the way to work today (no traffic) car pulls so hard going through and upwards of high MPHs.

I think it is set at 15psi right now so I need to lengthen the 3barRacing MBC to get it to 12

very nice!

I read but you have to agree that there is A LOT of information saying one thing and then saying the other.

I do not want to be one of those boners that bends a rod so just trying to figure it out safely.
