hood latches were not nearly as difficult as i thought they would be. Neasure twice cut once remember that. And i used a rotozip and went through 3 blades, they dont like carbon fiber all that much but the cut was perfect, no cracks or tears or anything.

So my mountian of parts is growing... so im going to order some more.

Looking at getting a CF front grill to replace the honey comb 08 grill. im also going to order a rear red I badge to replace the decepticons one on there, also ordering a threaded rod to attach my new red skull shift knob.

Looking at injectors and the rest of the whiteline bushings i have not ordered yet.

Found an awesome oil leak from the oil pressure gauge tap on the top of the engine bay yesterday when i went to instlal the LCA's i bought. There was oil everywhere, Im surprised the car did not burst into fla mes on the trip to or back home from boston on sat. The location its leaking from is the oil bung under the intercooler where Swift tapped into for my oil pressure gauge. This is another strike against them, thinking im going to call them and yell a little.




Yes that is oil caked on in a layer on the Downpipe






The culprit, a copper tube they used to make the sending unit fit, Are you kidding me?! copper, frigging idiots.



Pic after i cleaned it and started the car to see if i could find the leak, sure did find the leak, it was shooting a stream of oil right onto the turbo....



About 2 quarts of oil from 30 seconds of running the car after i cleaned it.



How she sits right now till i get home from work to figure out a fix.
