key fob gets replaced with a "credit card" you keep in your wallet and the car automatically unlocks when you get close......fingerprint recognition would be suaweeeet!

That is AWESOME. Is it super complicated to set up and/or will you be doing a write up on how you do it?

its pretty intensive; me and my friend were thinking about doing it ourselves but its was a little much. It's estimated to take 9-10 hours with professional installation. The shop is going to try and take some pics of the install progress and I'll def be posting those.

Here's the system I'm using:

Advanced Keys

You would also need these 2 extra parts:

Fortin EVO-ALL bypass

Fortin T-Harness for EVO-ALL

Push button start is almost completed; picking up the car today.

Also got some pics of these. Anyone have any ideas where these are going?

Picked up the car from the audio place i use for the push button start. It's a pretty cool system, except the remote start doesnt work. Mostly due to the fact that I have an aftermarket motor and so it just cranks rather than starting the engine.

On a side note looks like after driving it for tonight its going back to Blu808 for a diagnosis. The car pulls hard in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears, but when i shift into 4th gear and get into boost (~3k rpms), i can feel the rpms rising but the power isnt making it to the rear wheels and i get (what i think) is wheel hop for a second. I can shift into 5th and 6th gear, and when i get to ~3k rpms, the rpms rise but the power doesnt make it to the rear wheels....no wheel hop in 5th or 6th gear though......any thoughts?

I'm hoping it isnt the tranny because its under load in 1, 2, and 3 gears and they feel fine......

Don't remember if you have or not, but did you switch out the OEM clutch for something stronger?

The exedy twin disc is a plenty strong clutch.

With any clutch behing a 800 whp car if you slip it with normal driving it will wear out pretty fast.

Well it looks like theres a drain from the push button start; its killed the battery multiple times now so gotta pick up a new battery after work.

The clutch is getting replaced today as well by Luke and then over to the audio shop to troubleshoot whats draining the battery until Friday afternoon, then its straight off to San Diego to Targa Trophy road rally for the weekend.

Getting a little bit anxious to get my car back, havent really taken her it out in a couple weeks!
