    Those of us who still have the stack (original) 6 speed shifter and the Graziano, I have a question: Can you find and shift into 1st gear if the car is not stopped, aka downshift into 1st? I found instructions on how to adjust Audi R8 trans cables and at the end of the cables it has a...

    I used Raptor truck liner as a Frit. Then I used Sika Flex 295 marine grade urethane adhesive. I’ve used it before and holds incredible tight. It’s used to secure poly on yachts, so good enough for the car I guess. It was a #$&*@ to get the clear ones off BTW

    Convex mirror issue solved. Since I was mounting the tinted windows anyway, I searched for alternate solutions for mirrors (ya like who hasn't). Anyway I found symmetrical mirrors that fit, you ready a Seadoo. So here is what they look like with tinted windows. Fully adjustable so I will...

    Stop the presses, something not exactly right with this Graz "VSS". Just when I thought this discussion had drawn to closure, I discover something this morning that turned me on my head. I have 3 scanner runs which validated zero MPH while sitting still and MPH equal to the GPS using the...

    Convex Mirror Glass for Hippo Mirrors

    Has anyone replaced the flat mirror glass on the "Hippo" mirrors with convex glass? (I have round dots on them but I don't like them). Internet search for convex mirror glass has come up short.

    Sorry, I made a typo when I set my tune in input #456, above its a 34 tooth ring not 37. I will make a minor adjustment to the ratio as well (~1.95 to 2.0). My bad. The senor part number I have comes up as a VW Audi vehicle speed sensor 095927321

    Seems odd that based on the settings of the speedometer section of the ECU, the scanner readings in the HP Tuner match the GPS speedometer and not RPM. I also validated the signal to the ECU with a wheel speed sensor and the scanner was showing a speed match and not an RPM match. My objective...

    Sharing again on the VSS issue. Perhaps you knew, or not, but I did not know the Graz has a speed sensor built in that I could use. Its on the rear driver side of the Graz next to the cooling line port. I did some experiments using it and it works very well. I worked with Aarron who got some...

    You may want to know this so here I go. In my quest to fully appreciate what is happening inside our ECU's I stumbled across the never ending issue of the VSS signal. Bottom line is the ECU really needs to know the vehicle is moving and if not, its a source of the stalling some have...

    I paid for the windows, do we have any idea when they become available?

    Interesting observation on the 2' change. In looking at the cranking table below, I see the settings at 212 call for 4.5 degrees of timing. In the base timing table, the timing for the 0-800 RPM start at 18' and moves up to 21' as shown. So my question is at what point in the start sequence...

    Another lesson following the starter failure. I can only comment on my LS3/480 on the following but I believe these principles apply in a broader engine spectrum, so take it for what its worth. I noticed before the mechanical starter failure the LS3 struggled a little to start after “heat...
