  1. Front radar sensors not working

    So in general there is a spec that the sensors can be covered by anything, paint, wrap, etc. Generally wraps should not interfere with them as they are RF transparent. If that was the case you couldnt even cover them with the plastic cover and paint they already have. If there is any air between...
  2. What meth to use

    Exactly this. If you are using Water/Meth unless your tuner says something to you specifically only use M1 for the mix. In really short details... M1 is just alcohol, nothing else. M3/M5 are power adders meaning they have hydrocarbons added. Those hydrocarbons will not aid in pulling heat out...
  3. Fitment Issues APR Side Extensions (Resolved)

    Bummer. Something obviously happened to the mold or the person working the mold. Hopefully they get it sorted.
  4. Fitment Issues APR Side Extensions (Resolved)

    Bummer thats a bit more off then mine are. Mine arent perfect either but thats a much larger gap for sure. Is that with the screws installed up front? If the screws are not installed it will droop down and that gap opens up a bit more. You can try and pull the skirt up a bit towards the sky and...
  5. Fitment Issues APR Side Extensions (Resolved)

    Wanted to follow up by saying APR was super pleasant to deal with during this process. They made everything right in the end. They said the mold has not changed but they are going to research fitment with a few other cars, its possible something slightly changed on the newer cars as mine is a...
  6. Fitment Issues APR Side Extensions (Resolved)

    Alright just got back from dealing with this. I got it to fit, the drivers side is nearly perfect the passenger side is a bit off but its on the car. Im still fairly annoyed that an almost 2k part required any modifications whatsoever to fit but I will speak with APR about that tomorrow. The...
  7. New pistons and rings sub 20k

    Its very rarely the tech for this level of work, the people doing this work are generally very experienced and capable. They know what is wrong and what it needs, they do this shit all day every day. Its always management pinching pennies. They probably hoped they could get away with a cheap fix...
  8. New pistons and rings sub 20k

    Who ever approved that shouldnt have a job anymore. Takes 5 min with a good borescope, scoring almost always means a re hone in the best case.
  9. New pistons and rings sub 20k

    I understand the sentiment here but do not abuse the engine. Let it warm up fully. Use the full range of the revs and engine brake in manual mode everywhere. Try and avoid any highway driving for the first few miles, as well as idling. Hard pulls with hard engine braking is the goal for the...

    I have not, have not had time. Im hoping to get to it Monday night.
  11. Fitment Issues APR Side Extensions (Resolved)

    Yes they did. They said this "rarely" happens but since there are now two people something happened to the jig or mold. What I believe is the issue is that the tabs are much thicker then the OEM plastic skirt. The tabs are not seating in all the way. Send an email to...

    What are you both on about? Between science projects and algebra you would think we would need a lab coat and safety glasses on to pull into the gas station. It literally takes 10 seconds to determine the blend. Look at your gas gauge take a rough guess at how many gallons are left, look at...
  13. Fitment Issues APR Side Extensions (Resolved)

    Has anyone recently received their APR side extensions and had significant fitment issues? The rear clips dont capture anything and the first foot of the front looks like the mold is completely off. Did not even bother trying to install the passenger side. I reached out to APR about it but im...

    Cali and NYC is way worse than where I live on Long Island. But yeah they will pull you over and not give a flying rats ass what your excuse is. Especially the state troopers. Emissions here require all your readiness codes set so without a cat/cat heat plus evap you aren’t passing a car like...

    Yeah I largely agree. The racing is entertraining so its hard to complain. That type of build is really only possible in a handful of states, which is mostly what im getting at. It really just makes me chuckle a bit when they call it a street car is all.
  16. Post 6/2020 ECU unlocked in US

    They should really start calling it "street class". There is an argument to be had that a 6 second STM powered car isnt really a street car if you need to adjust the valve lash between street driving and racing, on top of running 100% meth. That car couldnt pass inspection in NY as well as many...
  17. Respect the Break-in Period?

    The reason the manual says this is for legal reasons. They don’t want you to wrap it around a tree and then sue them for not telling you to drive it carefully. Modern engines break in very quickly, usually just a handful of miles. Drive the car, let it warm up always, don’t idle or sit in...
  18. Is uniden R7 really better than the R3 around town?

    I have an R7 in the supra and a R3 in my Tacoma. Ive had both driving together on the same road at the same time and the R7 is far more sensitive. Definitely makes saves easier. Would I upgrade to an R7 from an R3? No. If you dont own anything yet though get the R7 its a better detector and is...
  19. Project Corvette Killer

    No idea. Im sure someone has posted times at roughly that power level though. I would guess somewhere between 10.5-11.0 and like 120-130 trap. (Guessing)
  20. Wider front tires - tramlining?

    I run 275 fronts and have very little tramlining. I have a great alignment though which has a big impact. If you can find someone that truly knows how to setup a car you wont have very much with this platform at least in my experience.
