First time driving it and heading to the exhaust shop to get a downpipe and screamer pipe made. Of course, I had to roll with no hood to "check for leaks" *cough* *cough* Haha jk, didnt want to burn a hole in my carbon fiber hood.
After 30 miles, did my first oil change and im sure glad I bought a magnetic oil drain plug!
Ok, so after the first oil change, I had the weirdest issue occur that caused the car to not run after the coolant temp got to 140 degrees. Took me a about a month to figure it out, but it ended up being a corrupt haltech map. Supposedly, this occurs when you unplug the USB from the computer without disconnecting from the ECU through the software. All I had to do was re-load the map to the ECU.
BUT...... I didnt know it was that simple of a fix. I ended up changing the whole engine harness because I had a bad ground and it was causing wires to burn. I though that this was the issue, but I was disappointed when the same thing happened after the harness change. While I was it, I went ahead and re-did the wires under the dash in the ECU area to clean it up.
I also removed the heater core and all A/C components under the dash. So much space was gained from this!
For the rest of the interior, well...... it what ever. Only the front seats and carpet are staying cause you know the saying "race car"
I BET YOU THOUGH I DIDNT HAVE A RADIO DIDNT YOU!!! Well this "race car" still has jams cause although the exhaust alone is music to my ears, I cant sing along with it so the radio needed to stay somehow and this is what I came up with temporarily.
Well thats about it for now. The engine has about 600 miles on it and climbing everyday. Here is a few vids on first startup, launch control, and a pull on 17 psi!
