here's the unique part I think. wired up the test mode connectors and the blue connector that comes with the access port to two seperate switches. instead of digging under my dash every single time I need to reflash my car I simply flip these two switches and BAM I'm in test mode and able to reflash
Did it in the carl's junior parking lot to test out a new map, works great but the switchs' housing needs to be cleaned up
It's the two ones on their sides in the same slot, one for each connector to flash
While this is pretty cool, I'll say plugging in the "green test mode connectors" takes 3 seconds without looking.

yea and yet the blue one you have to keep with you and is more of a pain to do, hey man if you don't mind doing it no worries. I just had to switch maps a lot trying to sort out a problem with my tune, makes it easy for me. It wasn't a problem once or twice when I first got the ap but if you do it alot this makes it easy

custom stick made by a friend.


and our mock-up diffuser. currently made from steel scraps and wieghs a ton the plan is to fiddle with some designs and then make the final product with a single sheet of aluminum and a few bends and folds.

I bet that's enough for police officers to use as probable cause to search your car. Just sayin'...

this was my first go at the crown boot. it was in my old bugeye. I'm still looking for a shift trim for the new bugeye.



and yeah, i did get pulled over with this set up and the officer asked if i was drinking as he shined his light on the boot. I had to explain to him that it was just a boot and that my shift knob was not a bottle cap. kinda funny.

I know this has been done before, but I feel as though a lot of them look like hack jobs... so here is my go:

Custom air intake feed and heatshield:

The air intake tube/feed:







Bumper re-installed:







On top of the stock air box I am making a custom heat shield to go around the stock air box to block heat from the engine/turbo:



Finished/Painted/Trimming Added:







Installed:





and I made a radiator shroud (as you can see)

and with this set up my intake temps are only 5-10*F hotter than the ambient temps when driving and and 15-20*F hotter when sitting idle... major improvement over my SRI w/ heatshield I was running before this which was about 40*F hotter when driving and 60*F hotter at idle

Looks great and about what my setup did... I do like yours as it seals completely and looks great but that's why I didn't so mine like that cause I don't want to trap, water, leaves, etc with the hose attached to a sealed box.

yea, I was debating about putting the grill on the vent that leads to the box or to leave it open... I was going to leave it open and see how much junk was in the box when I cleaned the air filter....and then re evaluate adding the grill back.... here is what it looks like with the grille:

I know it wont suck and is only effective while driving, poor choice of words on my part but my worry is going 75 on the interstate during a thunderstorm, I would hope the uphill climb is enough to funnel any water back out but I have never tried one of these so I was not completely sure

Mine has a light suction when I get a wild hair I am going to hook my shop vac on the side where it's connected to the airbox (making a huge suction) and then take the water hose with a shower nozzle on the and and point it in front of the fog light (where the funnel is connected) to simulate driving in a monsoon... This way if it doesn't soak up any water I know nothing will... Since both the water and vacuum suction will be way over exaggerated...

My prediction is since the tube I used has divots it will be hard for any water to make it up the tube and to the intake... Just my thoughts.

Thanks, my buddy has an extensive shop and neither of us know how to work with fibreglass or CF yet so aluminum was a natural choice. It's still in experimental stage but the shape is coming together nicely.
