    Welcome. Most common mistake mods seem to be air intakes that aren't compatible with OEM MAF. Or was it a MBC running 9,000lbs of boost? ...im in for updates and pics.

    Well the obvious one was the aftermarket headlights which could use the stock harness but instead they tried to make some elaborate wiring scheme which made the highbeems useless and dull. They put in a Blow off valve but didnt clamp any hoses so i had no boost. Battery was just sitting loose. I dunno the more I look at it the more i find that is all messed up. But I do like the challenge. Im new to all this car stuff so im not so hip on all the lingo.

    Well i guess cars in general. I have never really worked on them before. Luckily I have you guys and some friends who work on cars for a living. Just got new headlights!
