Continuing the Se2 Turbo!

by Jamesyboy » Fri Nov 23, 2012 2:19 pm

Well i got the car about a month ago from V6Steve, and i am loving it!! Ive had some issues with the 4x4 and boosting problems but im very close to getting these sorted! Heres a couple of pics from today

Some nice white Wolfrace Pro Lites, really set the car off!!

Image

And a nice powdercoated white rocker cover courtesy of Chavtastic, and some stainless rocker bolts, alongside the stainless afm to turbo hose i put on a while back! Also with my temp mod of the spring on the actuator stolen from my tractor at work ;-)

Image

I am just waiting on my power boost valve coming now, should be here monday, need to 100% make sure im getting the right fuel pressure!!

or just turn the light off? why would the light need to come on if theres no airbag. Early calibras with no airbag... surely the light dosent come on?

or if your handy with a soldering iron and your abs works solder the points for the airbag to the abs light 8)

done this a few times to cover up abs problems by wiring the abs light to the airbag light
