Thanks for the instructions. For folks that don't know, pics would be very helpful. Cheers

You rock !! !Thumbs Up It's a good idea to have a couple of spare c-clips handy if you have clumsy big hands like me. I tend to drop or break them.

I have the same problem i have skinny hands that think they are fat ROFL

P.S good advice

Or have someone do it for you so as to have no accountability whatsoever! :)

In fact, then you can blame their fat skinny klutzy mechanic fingers! :)

[QUOTE=wrxgtr;153148]should this be a sticky?[/QUOTE]

i believe it should!

Scoops04WRX 05-17-2007 04:52 PM

I agree. This should be a sticky also. Out of curiousity, what would happen if I turn up the boost on stage 1 with only a non catted DP?
