    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Speaking of, I was searching for a dash kit yesterday for my car hoping to find something cheaper than $300, and found a guy two cities over with a complete dash kit and a Jensen HU for $200. I picked it up today and plugged it in and everything works perfectly. I'm not a fan of Jensen, but this thing has dual USB, Nav, BT, backup camera, SD, DVD, reads FLAC, 6 channel RCAs, video in, etc. . . . I figure I'll settle with this for now. This damn car is so loud I'm not even going to attempt anything other than dropping the Evil mids in the doors, and fabbing up some tweet mounts. Going to glass the trunk corner for the Gcon and that's it.

    Does it do anything when you input the numbers? IIRC, the "tear tag" was what they used as a serial of sorts for the calibration. It's akin to a product key for software on your computer. Of course you probably already knew this. That's where you're going to run into trouble. Of course if you have IDS, you may have a license to aquire this information.

    So, apparently I need at least $800 just to get an aftermarket HU into the Stang. This is unacceptable.
  7. You will have to model whatever driver you choose to see how it will work in your application. Google WinISD. IT's a free modeling program and can give you a rough idea.

    Question about 18” ZCON subs

    General consensus would be if you have to ask, you shouldn't be asking.

    I had a ton of fun 2 years ago with the A4, but I am NEVER purchasing a VAG again!
  10. You're going about this the wrong way. Pick a driver and build the enclosure that it will need to perform the way you want it to perform. The largest problem is, you aren't going to get any low end response with that small of a driver in that tiny enclosure. It's just not happening.

    I'm going to daily this AND winter drive too, so I'm picking up some Blizzaks when I go get new truck tires next week.

    Oh yeah, One piece aluminum driveshaft and a set of factory rear wheels with some sticky MT streets, and a gay ass shift light on the dash. LOL!

    I'm still finding stuff and going through all the paperwork, but here is a short list: BBK longtubes BBK O/R X-pipe Flowmaster catback Boss 302 Intake JLT "cold air" BBK throttle body C&L mass air meter Throttle sensitivity adjuster Eibach Pro suspension kit. This includes springs/dampers/ and bushings at all four corners plus larger front and rear sway bars. BMR upper control arm mount, upper control arm, and lower control arms. BMR panhard bar JLT catch can 4:10 ring/pinion SCT livewire tuning by Brenspeed Several other things I've not yet found. Luckily, all this has been professionally installed and tuned by a well-known Mustang speed shop which is actually only a one hour drive.

    I thought of that, but a good wrap is a couple grand. Another grand and I can paint it. I don't plan on keeping this thing, so I will live with what it is. It's a rare color, so hopefully that will increase the value.

    They should be able to flash a new calibration without issue. It should literally take 15 minutes. Hopefully, they will only charge you a diagnostic fee.

    And then I remember how little I paid.

    Thanks, but it's bugging the hell out of me actually. I don't like yellow. It's saving grace is it looks like molten gold when the sunlight hits the pearl.

    It's an SCT? I'll see if I can find the manual for mine. I SWEAR this was in the manuals. They are trying to prevent exactly what happened to you. I hope your dealer is helpful. Some of them are just assholes when it comes to the aftermarket.

    Is your truck a dead duck right now?

    I've had 3 handheld tuners before. Each one of them has stated in the directions that before you do anything, make sure you are connected to a battery charger to prevent battery drain. It's literally like the first thing in the manual.

    All the parts were installed by a professional Mustang shop, I have all receipts from everything that's ever been done to it right down to detailing, and it recently had the clutch replaced and 4 new tires. Also has a set of Mickey Thompson ET drag radials on matching wheels.

    SO, this guy had this car posted for sale several months ago for $15.2K. It has over $10K in mods. Just ridiculous. ! owner car. I see this car every day as the guy lives and works close. I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a really nice Tacoma. I came home Wednesday for lunch and just so happened to check Craigslist and this car was the first thing that popped up. What hooked me was the price. $!0K! I thought it was BS, so I emailed the guy to call me. He did so 10 minutes later and 3 hours later I was checking it out. I told him I'd go the bank in the AM, and he said if I bought it by Friday he'd give it to me for $9K! I went to the bank to get a small loan to cover what I didn't have in cash and the loan officer valued the car at $16.5. I figure the mods add another $2K, so I have effectively doubled my money. I went to pick it up this morning and he gives me all the stock parts and other parts he purchased but never installed or just changed because he wanted to. So, now I have the car, AND another 2Gs, in parts! I hate yellow, in a bad way, but this is a no-brainer from an investment standpoint.

    I only purchased it because it was too cheap not to. I already have equity in it.

    I'll have pics in the AM. Couldn't get it picked up tonight. Barely made it to the bank before closing.
