    So I installed my front lip combo with a prodrive bayson r rep on too painted PSM with grimmspeed paint. The bottom is a bayson r s204. Secured by self tapping screws. Thinking I may look for some hinge style things that go on the fender and front bumper for quick release for oil changes and easier removal since I hate the inside push pins because they break and are hard to reach.

    heres a pic of how i have my AEM UEGO mounted. since i planned on getting the SMY cluster i just got a notch into the side so the wires wouldnt be pinched. to mount the gauge just drilled two holes on the plastic piece and used a zip tie to secure it. looks good enough for me and will most likely do that on the other side for a boost gauge rather than spend ~$140 for an SMY cluster.

    Looks good buddy. I think I'll be adding some of the AEM digital gauges to my collection as well after seeing how good that looks.

    thanks! sure it would look cleaner if it was mounted in an actual pod but free>$140 lol. after i get my tune and sell my AP ill most likely be getting a Defi boost gauge and mount it on the other side. its held on pretty secure and i dont think it looks horrible.

    update: still waiting on tactrix from friend so i can make sure all programs are working, then when they are ill set up EBCS/MBC then tune!

    so after txting my friend everyday and him taking his good ol time for me to borrow his ~$40 tactrix cable ive decided to just order my own and hopefully will be here before this weekend. ordered the 2.0 cable that way whenever i want to log, i can. no waiting around for one.

    also tried to just log my AEM UEGO last night and when i plugged it in to laptop and had romraider open it said select COM port..but gave me no options...maybe i need to have the tactrix plugged in ? but i see no reason why since the wideband gauge wouldnt log since its seperate. but will mess around with that more tonight and hopefully find the answer at work today

    I know I had to install drivers for my laptop to recognize the serial to usb adapter. THEN I had to see which COM (USB) port I had it plugged into. Did your come with any instructions or anything?

    Uninstalled AP successfully. Turn laptop on to flash new map and it starts the longest service pack upgrade ever fml. Getting other things ready I pull down my wires for my USB to serial cable and wire is out I the crimp -__- soldering time.

    Soo heres some of the things i can remember about my tuning experience so far

    romraider wouldnt pickup the AEM wideband but i figured that out by messing around with selecting it, the plugin option and selecting the com port then refereshing and unchecking and rechecking the external sensor box

    romraider when trying to log my car gave me a java error so reinstalled java and got it working

    ecuflash that i downloaded to my mac was for the old version tactrix cable and i bought the openport 2.0 cable because my friend was taking too long to give me his ebay knockoff one, and i wanted my own for logging and such. so had to redownload it to the netbook

    the one wire fell out of my crimp for the wideband usb to serial cable so i soldered that connection

    dropped my MBC under the middle of the car and had to use a stick to reach it..

    the vac line broke off on the WGA , compressor outlet and intake...it was like old hardened rubber that seemeed to become plastic..so that took longer than expected to get off...

    and heres the big one where i almost realllyyy screwed up.. went to flash the map on ecuflash, i test wrote the map and it worked fine, went to really flash it and it wpouldnt and there was an error..couldnt shut car off or id be reallyyyyyy screwed. so i was at my dads house so had to use his wifi to look for a stock map online to download and save it, he didnt know hiw wifi network or password so had to run up to his pc and figure that out, all while my car batt is slowly draining and wanting to die, so set that up and am searching for maps, talking to matty on the phone and i think wait...for my AP i would connect green test connectors AND the white intiaization jumper. SUPER NEWB MISTAKE. didnt plug the damn initialization jumper in fml. couldve screwed things up real bad but luckily i remembered that. the reason why i didnt is because on the AP it tells u to connect teh green test and white then it flshes. on ecuflash it just says green and youre supposed to remember to do the white jumper., depending on your model year. so at least i got lucky and remembered or things couldve went downhill.

    did some logs at like 15psi set on the mbc and apparently getting some knock and not so good things but will do moar logs in the morning and hope for the best. car didnt blow up yet so thats a good thing, maybe tmmrw..

    also other fun things happened like the stupid AP doesnt like to uninstall or reinstall unless at the right voltage.

    went to uninstall it today, checked voltage it was 12.8, hit uninstall says voltage is too high at 13.4 WTF!!! so yea that gets on my nerves. i feel like a teen girl blogging about her day...eh close enough so anywho yesterday after reinstalling my AP car wouldnt start. almost peed. but battery voltage just dropped too low..

    going to change my thread name to Ruh Rohs bugeye build of misfortune...

    to be continued tmmrw with hopefully happy things, but probably not..
