honestly... it's the investment I've made into it over the years...

I've always had a goal to take this car into classic status and plan to stick with it. I usually invest in things for the long term and rarely do I jump from one thing to another. this can be said for almost everything I do in life unless I feel the need to just pick up and go.. the car will take me to where I need to go

My sincerest apologies .

no worries... there are replicas of this setup on ebay as well that are very similar to my setup. I have honestly never seen the versions you have though... but they are carbon wrapped over fiberglass instead of full carbon. Longevity is the goal.

I've searched all over, with mixed answers :-/

Maybe one of you old school guys has first hand knowledge of this.

I'm picking up a PnP'd Throttle Body. So, I've gotta swap all the sensors. IACV and MAP are a no brainer. The TPS has me a little confused.

I've read you have to "zero" it at closed throttle to .5v. Okay, non issue. Except, my TPS doesn't have slotted holes. Then I read the 16bit ecu doesn't care, just slap the sensor on.

Huh? Which is it? Any of you guys been here before?

I only ask in here, because it seems specific to the 16bit ecu.

well it's drive by cable NOT wire. If I'm remembering right you don't do anything with the TPS and just slap the sensor on. The ECU determines all the particulars based on a few things.

Right, which makes sense. Part that gets me is, the TGVs use the same sensor to determine position, and those do need to be preloaded.

That's why I'm confused.

exactly.... I believe the reason it needs to be loaded is because the TGVs don't use the full range that the sensor is capable of... where when it's a TPS you it uses the full range or most of it.

right... like the varis one... the end pieces and the center are purchased separately. I can tell by the pictures of the center that they are made similarly though.

FYI: I DID need to cut on my driver side of the center section to fit my exhaust though... be prepared. I was trying to not cut but ended up needing to.

Wrong thread, but I do have retrofitted HID projectors on my bugeye. I just don't know what kit I'll be safe with running. I was thinking about running the Bi-Xenon kit but what other kits can I run for a decent price right now? Both my ballasts just went out and one high beam refuses to come on.

Bi-xenon kit? There's a few. High/low and just low. The factory and JDM setup are separate for high and low beams how do you have it hooked up to the chassis harness and are you using an additional relay harness. Are you using the slim or regular style ballast?

Pictures help especially since this is the bugeye thread

Not that they are just down the road from the likes of TopSpeed and JPM Coachworks, http://www.theretrofitsource.com/contact_us.php is the place for headlights. Give them a call

285/30/18 Hoosier A6s on 18x9.5 Mach V Wicked Awesomes. They weight 3lbs less at each corner than my 17x9 wheels and tires, lol

Unfortunately, they hit the suspension with their +42 offset, so I've got 12mm spacers coming in the mail.
