Nope... but without a tune the O2 sensors will cause a CEL.

Anyway, I met him during a World Series party, told him about the 1LE which was on order at the time, and we have since stayed in touch. He's even driven my 1LE. Anyway, this isn't about me; rather, this is about you.

He was at Laguna Seca when you raced and spoke to you. I told him about your videos, that you were passing other cars and that you had the same car as me. He got excited and animated like, "Oh, Yeah! I think he's from SoCal and I spoke to him. He was shredding people all over the place that day. Incredible. I couldn't believe those were street tires."

Anyway, thought you'd like to know that people are talking about you and the 1LE up here. It's a small world eh.

Just got an email from AAC. They're going to replace my halo for me, but they're backordered for 2-4 weeks (so 3-5 before I'll get it) :(
Guess ill start putting the car back together, no way am I going that long without driving it! :(

I know that, i wasn't being literal.The point was that these tires are for performance on the race track,thats why they are so sticky,soft,and only get about 12,000 miles on them.

Wow Ozzy, it seems you've gone into the light assembly multiple times now. You must be an expert. I suppose when you return to the mainland,I'll let you help me install the halos in my car.

Lol, I AM getting pretty good at getting the bumper off and getting into the lights. Got them sealed up now, they'll go back on the car when I get home from work.
If I wind up back in Norfolk, I usually work for beer

Did you guys change the axle oil before you all tracked your cars? If so what brand of oil did you all use?

Lookin good now...

... but you were WAY overdue. I just wanted to post up because the only reason to do this mod is to be able to easily change the fluid. If frequent changes (every fill up) are not done clutch performance WILL deteriorate.

They are no lower than the stock ones. Ozzy, I think you can do it. If you don't scrape now, you won't with the ZL1 sides
