So, I was just thinking to myself .... now that you've done most of the mods you set out to do ... do you keep hanging around here getting influenced by what others continue to do? ..... HE[[s Ya!

You're done already?? Dang...this headlight and fog mod is probably going to be the toughest one I'm gonna do in the foreseeable future. Then it's a couple vinyls, my cai, and I'm pretty much done for a while. Speaking of CAIs, there's not really a way to install one with our separators installed, is there? Anybody have an idea?

Very nice. Hard to tell exactly what you did from my phone, but looks like it was pretty simple. My cai isn't going in til I get a stock dyno run. Maybe this weekend

I got the stage one. Just the clutch reservoir.
No worries. Thanks, I think I'm going to go the same route.

Clutch reservoir

Got mine done today Just as CrystalRedTintcoat the clamp that comes with the package is too big,glad he let us know so i was able to pick up that hose clamp before i started.I let Jordan know and he will be addressing the issue. I also painted my lug nuts,and of course those aren't original rims,they are in the back bedroom all safe and warm for my track day at Laguna those rims i got from a C5 member from Vegas,and had them powder coated.I painted the center cap,but am not happy,so will be redoing it.

i just used a wire tie on the nipple. Remember to change that clutch fluid OFTEN... that is really the point. Looks good.

Just got my car back this afternoon. Good thing because i was going through withdrawal. Seems the shifter pin was not seated correctly at the factory, so a new one was put in. So mine was a fluke, and not something you guys should concern yourselves with. I couldn't believe all the mods you guys have done recently, and it seems I need to get on the ball. Need to order catch can and clutch reservoir , but was hoping the catch can ordering glitch has been fixed. Don't want order a crystal red and get Ozzys long lost yellow.

I use a turkey baster... change it with every fill-up or after a day at the track.

This is the guy that started it all...

well, that's good to know it's an isolated incident...as for the cans, you might want to speak with apex or another vendor, see if the cans are still on backorder. or, consider a different type of can. i ordered direct from revxtreme...can't say i was thrilled with the results.

i decided to back out of the headlight mod for now...the weather's been crap all week, and i don't have any place i can paint my assemblies and shrouds other than outside plus, i really want to take the car out again this weekend instead of work on it if the weather's nice. so, she's all reassembled and ready to rock now

Not following. Did you use the oil separator tube and connect it to your CAI intake tube?

We need a BayArea drive! I'm tied up this weekend though. Did you have frost on your glass this morning? I park outside.

Yes we do. I know some awesome roads around here. I've had frost on my Silverado(my DD) the last few days. Weapon X parks in the garage.

Thanks for the good info Tram.
I know CrystalRedTintcoat cant make the track day at Laguna,but if you and Doglife are close enough to the track, you two should stop by and say hey,it would be pretty hot to see 3 1LE'S in one place.I am going to have some awesome GoPro footage on track to share,as well it would be pretty cool to have someone shooting video of this hot rod on the track.

Man I had no clue Laguna was by Monterey. Shows you how much I've been involved in racing . What day/days are you going to be there? I might be able to make it.
