Commencal Meta V4... I want that.
yea well that goes for most bolt on mod. none of it will actually work to its full potential unless you get a good tune for it.Actually the 2JZ swap was the next step for the SC300 if it weren't for the fact that I got sick of the car and I wanted a truck. So the money that was supposed to go to an engine swap on a 20-year old used coupe ended up becoming a down payment on a new 2014 Frontier instead =)
Plus - considering you say you're in that "scene" still, then I'm sure you know the truth that aftermarket exhaust is only as good as everything else you do to the engine afterward, otherwise it's 95% for noise LOL
Seriously though - I didn't do any engine mods because I just didn't feel like it. When I bought the truck the main focus was to be able to daily drive it comfortably, haul my mountain bike all over the place, and to do mild/medium trail stuff (which normally is at low speeds anyways). It's not a desert bomber, it's not a track racer either. Who knows, maybe I'll get exhaust later on down the line, but it's not high on the list. I like the Banks system and the AFE system myself. I'll possibly reconsider around tax refund time next year, heh.
You're close ::wink::Pods...
Margot is hot... but the avatar is because it's Harley Quinn, whom I've been a fan of for over 15 years now (even before 'Suicide Squad' came out). And I've been in love with Keira Knightley since approx. the same time frame.Question. If your truck's name is Keira after Ms. Knightley why do you have a picture of Margot Robbie as your avatar?
Curious how you mounted the UltraGauge above the the rear view mirror... 3m sticky tape?A few small updates for now... more when things actually get moving:
First, really quickly - I relocated the UltraGauge from on the dash (see here) to the upper center part of the windshield, right above the rear view mirror. It's been hot out lately during the day, and the UltraGauge would always beep at me when I got in, telling me that it reached its own internal high temperature limit because it was exposed to direct sunlight on the dash. Now up on the windshield it's partially covered by the factory "tint dots" and no more temp alarm going off. I can still access the controls easily.
No install pictures required, just snapped a pic of whre it is now.
Actually they have a vertical mount with a rotating ball-type base:Curious how you mounted the UltraGauge above the the rear view mirror... 3m sticky tape?
I see... Any concerns with the adhesive failing in the hot sun? Mine's currently mounted to the grab handle, but I prefer over the mirror like you did. Also, factory cable long enough to reach to the ODBCII port?Actually they have a vertical mount with a rotating ball-type base:
I actually moved the Ultragauge up there at the beginning of the summer and it didn't/hasn't moved since. Unlike when I had it mounted on the dash (left corner above the front air vent) I haven't heard the high-temp warning alarm go off once all summer. Just of note, I did clean the glass area with a rag and denatured alcohol before I mounted it, and I also used a heat gun briefly on the adhesive to soften it up good.I see...
