    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    Installed new reluctor wheel last night, made new bracket for VSS and got it all mounted. My 6 month old was already put down to sleep so didn't get a chance to test it out, but will this evening. I have high hopes all is good! While wheel was off, sketched the e-brake caliper and will draw...

    Fire Extinguisher Mounting

    That's a very good point Howard about the fresh air when you open the clam. I'm fixing to order the handheld so I have something close by and out of the way right now, but definitely will look into the suppression system while my bank account recovers from paying the taxes on registering the car.

    Fire Extinguisher Mounting

    Thanks! I remember seeing your extinguisher installed at some point on your blog as well, just can't remember where. The floor is probably the best and easily to mount, especially knowing brand/model of what will fit for sure. While I've been following along all this time, now that I have a...

    Fire Extinguisher Mounting

    No dumb thought at all! Fire suppression system has crossed my mind and while I haven't looked very much into one, it seems like a pretty straight forward install. Most definitely lots of insurance and while there's probably no worries on a street car, I also wouldn't mind filling that void...

    Fire Extinguisher Mounting

    Having one in the car was an afterthought once it was finished, but I really should install one for the peace of mind instead of carrying it around in the passenger seat. I searched to see how others did, but not finding much info out there. I'd prefer to put where most seem to, the area...

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    Just in case anyone searches the forum for the forum for putting the VSS on the car, this is the parts I'm using. I do not need it for the speedo, this is only for the engine to know if the car is moving or not. - I initially tried to zip-tie the sensor and car didn't surge/stall as much as...

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    You're not kidding, I thought only LS engines were that good, lol. It really shocked me how good of gas mileage the Audi gets. On the way home from Vegas to Louisiana when I bought it, I got 28.x MPG

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    I test fitted some emblems to get an idea of sizes. This is a SLE emblem from a GMC Sierra truck I bought a year or 2 ago from AliExpress. I originally planned to modify the "E" to make it a "C", but decided since that it would be better to 3D print my own emblem....although not in PLA so will...

    I was trying to think where I've seen a plate similar to this, it was on a Lotus (Elise or Exige) when digging around for tail lights

    I'd very much appreciate it! It'll make things look good/normal with a new switch. I don't have much seat time, but the stalk doesn't bother me visually (yet), but accessing the volume buttons is tricky with it and that's just with the car parked! Please send me PM when you get some time, I'm...

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    Yesterday went smoothly at my 2nd DMV trip to Baton Rouge, submitted everything and paid my taxes. Very happy I was able to make both trips and get all paperwork together within a week. I got to see my regular plate and registration together, so know that's done on their part too. Now just gotta...

    GOT A VIN! Trooper visit #2 to my house has been completed. I've been officially assigned a VIN and got paperwork needed from him for when I make Baton Rouge trip #2 to submit everything and pay taxes. I have to "trailer" the car to a local inspection place to get them to fail the car due to...

    Vss-ecm-stalling

    Anyone happen to have a part number for the driver's side bracket that attaches to the transaxle so I can attach the heat shield? I've searched and search with no luck at all finding this part. Barely found the shield on a n online microfiche. Borrowed Cam's pic of said bracket.

    Thanks Ken! The ring Dan used is about half the price so will use it and attempt to find a way to mount my VSS unless it's too high up. I'll measure when I get home and see how it plays out. Thanks!

    Vss-ecm-stalling

    Yes sir they do speak for themselves, I gave it a shot for kicks, lol. I missed the bolt-on ring Dan used, thanks for the link. I think I'm going to go that way instead of the press fit. I need to find the shield's mounting bracket like Dan has to bolt that shield up anyways, so if I can use...

    4-5 more laps under my belt, feeling more like my car now and not someone else's, if that makes sense. I have about 10.x miles on it, which isn't alot but is for the short laps I make. Neighbors may hate me, hopefully they realize it's only till I get a plate. The manual steering isn't hard...

    Vss-ecm-stalling

    Trying things from easy to hard. Had an hour last night so made a bracket and mounted the VSS in hopes that maybe it'd be able to pick up the bolts. Made 4-5 laps around my neighborhood path and while it runs better than just being plugged in, still not 100%. It started to surge only once in...

    Not sure if this offer still stands, but I definitely need to shorten the wiper stalk so I can access the buttons on the side of the screen. You can name your price, it really is a necessity (at least for me).

    If I do need to use the DSS relecutor ring, I'll have to pull the CV off since it's slip fit and my still be a pain. Sort of wonder if something like this would work equally as well and can cut in half and install without removing the CV? https://www.pacificcustoms.com/ac957812.html
