    Leaking Koni's? Oh shit. I guess I should check on mine. Have some yellows on the VR6. And orange STR.Ts on the wagon... Which are rusty as fuck after just over a year.

    Nabs' Alpine White/Imola Red E46 M3

    I just remembered something that I should probably clarify. The person I talked to did mention that the oil that was seeping from the top adjuster area was separate from the oil in the shock itself. IIRC most Koni's come standard as compress to adjust and the top adjusted ones are only slightly more expensive.

    Other than this issue they have performed excellently on the street and track, and I've been quite happy with them.

    It's almost time to wake up


    I sent out the ecu yesterday for an updated tune. They found a few issues in the tune recently but were able to get everything fixed so it should be good to go when the snow is finally gone.


    Also picked up a new toy...


    It's a pretty neat little gauge. It's a 3"x1"x0.5" dual function gauge that, in this case, reads both boost and wideband. It comes with all the wiring and the boost sensor, but you do need a wideband sensor that has an 0-5v output to connect to this gauge. Also came with that black, non-glare filter material that you can shape to size for a stealth install. The company that makes it also makes some dual function 52mm gauges and can make a bunch of other custom stuff.

    They have a high resolution and "low" resolution which only goes by 1psi but I actually got the high resolution version, which lets you set the boost to either 1psi, 0.5psi or 0.1psi increments and if you wire in a momentary switch you can actually get peak boost recall as well. Also comes with a park light dimmer wire, so if you wire it into your interior lights you can have it dimmer for night, which can also be programmed for different intensities.

    fully lit vs dimmed


    Here's an idea of where it'll be installed. It should look pretty stealthy once I get everything installed and I will still be able to maintain 50% of my vent and all adjustments.


    I have a few more things on order but I won't have time until my exams are done in mid-April. I hope to have all my small projects wrapped up and installed by April 26th, ROCKFALLS!!

    Perhaps your car and personal taste in modifications is a topic of conversation outside of this forum?

    Maybe, but I don't give a flying fuck.

    I'm sure you can beat a vette, especially if you feed your car some corn.
