Iíve alwasy ran mega squirt or some form of standalone system in my previous cars, and Iíll be going to the same soon in this. I just want to get the car to a semi reliable drivable point for now.

Been dailying the car all week, and besides a few hiccups all is good. Biggest issues are an exhaust leak causing some stink, overall noise, and a vibration that keeps showing up that I'm hoping is a tire, but feels like a driveshaft. New tires get here tomorrow so hopefully that solves the issue. The car is fairly dialed in on wastegate pressure and runs well. Still feels like there is a ton to do, but I'm getting closer to being done with reliability issues and being able to move on to fun stuff.

dont mind me driving in the rain and taking a picture.
I have really been enjoying driving even if its crap weather.



I also have my SAFC mounted to the ash tray with a magnetic phone mount, but I think ill make a bracket and trim piece to stick it down by the new radio. Thoughts?

Looking good man.


Do you intent to out a gauge next to it as well?? Because if not......

I would move the radio up and get the little storage cubby for under the radio and mount it just above the little coin tray, under where the radio currently sits, upright so it would mildly block the cubby, yet still maintain the ability to get in it and use it. Maybe with the safc on a hinge to fold down.

Havenít decided where the radio will live for sure. The only reason itís in the lower position now is to not be blocked by the safc on itís magnetic mount currently.

Finally got around to moving my safc like I wanted to. First off the silver had to go.
Before



After a quick vinyl wrap




Next was to move the radio up top and build a block off plate. The safc is magnetic mounted so it can still be pulled out of the dash for easier tuning. The block off plate will be getting 2 USB ports added into it. One to the radio and a second just for charging. Also the gain remote for my sub will likely get mounted here.

What do you guys think? Came out better than I was expecting.
