So, I'd never heard anyone else describe that "seatbelt scream" lol. Didn't know it was a common-ish issue. and you say the fix is easy? Reading your post gave me one of those "I'm not the only one!" moments.

my seat belt squeeks at b pillar hanger - when buckled in and i move. the fix is lube inside surface of exteded seat belt with a dry bar of soap. re-apply in a couple months when squeek comes back. cheapest thing i've done to my car.

Yup that's it. I was tired after a year of hearing it so I did a bit of googling and that's what came up

Well I've been listening to it for about a year as well and I'm so ready to do this.

Doing this tomorrow first thing after work. Always thought that noise was some quirk of having a used car. It won't be missed.

I wanted to post up a current log for all to see. I had been looking at the wrong numbers previously. I am making 19.96 lbs at 4200, seems a bit late for this setup but we are still working things out. The previous maps had me making boost quite a bit later, I hope avcs is working. This is a third gear pull. I am really happy with the way she feels right now and we aren't done yet.

The hybrid setup will help spool some and the top end cause boost drops badly... I like the timing though, post some more up as you go

I've buckled and unbuckled twice now expecting the sound but it is officially GONE.

Tomorrow I'm going to get to my Whiteline steering rack bushings and TiC fender braces

I'm about to throw that on right now. I will also be boost leak testing and I will check for any exhaust leaks as well. Then I will load up the new map and see how she does.

New hotness. Feels better with the hybrid setup. I also found my Grimmspeed 3 port, finally!!

Just looked a little closer, there was some knock up top. That will disappear.

I hate my new job. I don't get off work till noon Sunday morning.

12 hour over night shifts are no fun.
