    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I've used PowerStop many times without issue. They sell normal rotors too. I've used them.

    Actually the worst part is the clutch. If you let off the pedal even 1%, it grabs. It makes for a jerky bitch.

    Side note, I have increased my fiber intake 5 fold. My energy has increased but damn, I'll leave it at that.

    Fucking pigeons bombed both of them today. Feel like shit. I love that car and it's just sitting in my driveway. Not even a proper garage.

    I really dislike my new car. I just can't get past the color, and the gears, and the 13mpg. . . . Mileage may be partly operator error though. Actually really miss driving the 'Bird.

    He could have forgone the fuel and just hitched a ride. . . . . Or a tow strap.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Judging by my other "high power" cars I've had, I'm estimating 400 at the wheels. The gears may be attributing to that though. I actually want a higher gear. I'm cruising around town at 40 in 5th gear a little above 2K. I think I'm going to change the clutch too, even though it's brand new. It grabs INSTANTLY and it's a total jerk. Literally. It jerks the fuck out of you and it's nearly impossible to slip. IT's an Exedy "stage 2", whatever that means, but it's too aggressive and unfortunately non-adjustable. If I had purchased it stock, I would have started with the exhaust, then brakes, lighter wheels with sticky sticky tires, suspension and THEN I would have thrown some power at it. As it sits right now, my first concern is audio, even thought that's pretty much pointless. It's obscenely loud, but cruising and road noise is fairly tame actually. Going to drop the Evils in the doors, play with some of the tweets I have, so glass the Gcon in the corner. If I still have it next year, I'll get some new shoes and rubber.

    strapping

    No; they need to be identical amps and be able to be strapped.

    Help on Finding Speaker

    There is nothing like this on the market. A fan will do what you need though.

    SO this Jensen HU might be a bust. Still ahead money wise though. Gotta sell some other gear to buy some new stuff.

    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.

    Good luck Mike. I'm at a loss.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    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.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    So, apparently I need at least $800 just to get an aftermarket HU into the Stang. This is unacceptable.
  20. 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!
  23. 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.
