I hope that works better for you than my LM2 wide band did. It worked maybe one time. Then took a dump. I found out later that happens a lot. I've tried calling them and emailing them multiple times with no response. Piss poor customer service and product IMHO.

This will be the build thread. Here are some pics from today. Rear tow hook going in where one of the backup lights used to be. More pics as they happen!

We are planning to service the tranny at this time. After it fails I vote for a third pedal and a quarter master

Just so I can mentally prepare myself for swapping out, oh, the rest of the dive train, how long do you anticipate my OE transmission lasting? 2 weekends? 4?

Quarter Master Optimum-SR - nice!

Console being finished up, rear tow hook, and 6-nozzle fire suppression system (4 on engine, 2 on me, I am guessing).

Rear bumper off for welding. Not much left back there! Ice chest that will be mounted in the trunk to supply the cool shirt. No more sweating to death in the summer sun.

i wanted to do something to my console while i had it off but i didnt know what to do. that looks trick and it will be functional too. if you unplug that yaw sensor under the console, your side curtain airbags will fire for no reason without warning. ask me how i know. BOOM . . . confetti

Boom is not a sound we like to associate with a track event

Jeez, I hope you are okay man. That could have been dangerous depending on where you were. I used to unplug the battery before removing the seats for the fear the bags would go off, and then I forgot to disconnect the battery first and it did not trigger. But never thought unplugging a sensor under the dash would do that.

I bet it scared the crap out of you when it went off...

Rear tow hook plus external button to trigger fire suppression system.

(Yes there is an switch in the car to activate the system, to avoid random parking lot people and curious middle schoolers from flooding my cabin with foam)

Goodies arriving, installation updates

Fire suppression bottle going in the trunk (needed to weld a plate in underneath), updated shots of the controls on console (red cup prevents accidental triggering of fire suppression), awesome radiator, and FAST intake.
