So far I like it. You can monitor a bunch of stuff, esp. intake and coolant temps. My first page of gauge is intake temp, engine load, MAF flow rate(grams/s), and a few more.

Ordered a new rear Oxygen sensor from RockAuto(NTK OEM replacement w/ connector fitting) as well as a 90 degree spacer elbow for it. I don't have enough room for two anti-foulers so this should do the trick. I have high hopes for this getting rid of the CEL from installing the MSDS header. All of the supplies should be here by friday just in time for the double auto-x this weekend.The elbow for those curious>>>>O2 Oxygen Sensor 90 degree 18mm tes.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&vxp=mtr&item=251081092487]O2 Oxygen Sensor 90 degree 18mm test pipe extension M18 X 1.5 18mm 02 | eBay

Rear Oxygen sensor came in today. Just waiting on the 90 degree spacer and I will be installing and hopefully the CEL will be gone.

Edit: Forgot to check my mail today and the spacer was in my mailbox. Pretty solid piece for $30 shipped! Decently heavy and the welds look good.

You need the oxygen sensors for the MSDS header?

And do you recommend those black plastic things on the rear bumper? I kinda find them ugly but I want some protection there lol

You don't need the 2nd one, but removing it or not doing anything with it will cause the CEL to come on. I have to get my car inspected this month(Stupid VA laws) and I've grown tired of it so I bought the new one(old one is dead, my fault) and a spacer to try out.

I'm glad I got the rear bumper guards. Its nice to not worry about scratching the paint there if you sit on the back or are moving stuff in and out.

I've gotten used to it, but it still bugs me. If this works, it should be a cheap fix for everyone.

Virginia Tech had a two-day autocross event on campus this weekend. I raced both days and it was blast as usual!

Day 1: 2 cars in STF, placed 2nd due to cone on my last run I placed in in the high 30's(didn't get to see the ranking by PAX sheet) in PAX out of 71 drivers, not my best racing day.

Times: Go here and click "Results" then "Run Details" next to June 16 Va Tech. Find my car under STF class.
Run 1: 55.579s +1
Run 2: 55.893s +1
Run 3: 55.638s +0
Run 4: 54.940s +2

Pics












Videos





Day 2: I was the only car in my class but still drove hard and placed 7th overall in PAX out of 79 drivers.

Times: Go here and click "Results" then "Run Details" next to June 17 Va Tech. Find my car under STF class.
Run 1: 58.685s +1
Run 2: 58.109s +0
Run 3: 58.002s +0
Run 4: 58.101s +0
