Had a interesting weekend with the car.
didn't realize that the HPS intake arm is such a POS. Should of went with my gut and ordered a Samco.
The HPS arm needs to be trimmed about 1.5" or you will have a nasty fold in the corner.
While i was installing the intake, i decided to finally take off the airpump, and some the hoses that come along with it. It was pretty simple from what you see
in the engine bay. Kept it in tact for the next cali smog check. I do have the Izze delete sensor, but it isnt installed. I was told that the check engine light is suppose to
come on when you disconnect the pump, although it has not. Maybe i need to put some miles on it to see if it does turn on.
Took the carbon end plates off the bumper, and moved the ASM fender washers to the radiator plate. I also replaced my hood dampers with some new cheap ones i
found on ebay. some brand called Phase 2. They aren't bad, but they weren't kidding when they say they are not for carbon/ fiber glass hoods. When i installed both i was not able to close
my hood without breaking it. So i ended up just using one of the dampers, and it works just fine. I guess i have a spare now.
My buddy Jason from Aerogenics made me some solid base stands, and finally put those on. They are just raw aluminum as the car will be going in for a full respray sometime this year.
So the stands, and bases will be color matches to the car.
