Not sure how that's work intensive tho.

You literally make a tiny incision with a razor blade around the lid and screws, and voila. 10 minutes? tops

...Actually, that's a really ******* good way to do it if you can locate the lid and screws.

I was planning on razor blading around the general area of the lid and just pull the SOB stuff up, as I'm not certain about accurately locating the lid like that.

I thought about that airbag MS setup for my new car! Crazy, how hard was it to route the harness there?

I opted for an ultra long harness, and it was surprisingly easy to route, and looks like it will be super clean and simple to work with.

I love that I can now simply unplug the stock ecu, and plug the harness in. If my tuning is failaids or something happens, all I do is unplug and plug and I'm back on stock ecu and ready to drive to work/etc. Literally a 30 second process.

I'm keeping everything else stock until the MS is dialed in well enough to run the car without issues and start/drive perfectly. Then adding injectors and pump, then.......

tell these people that they suck at photography and the additon of fake HDR is a crime and I want to hit them with a bat and doesnt mask their shitty skills only make it more obvious.

I literally had the thought " Scott and Matt are gonna give me a hard time about these pics" when uploading them.

Its the guys style. Most people rave about his photography. You seem to hate nothing more lol

There was another guy snapping a bunch of pics too, a buddy of mine actually, I'll check his Flickr account and upload those too when I get home.

I'm about 2 hours from SF.

Also I'll upload a couple vids of me racing a n/a 2.5 modded Impreza and bolt on MSM I was shocked at the outcomes on both races

Appyling fake HDR to snap shots is like the hellaflush-hardparking of photography.

LOL I don't even have a quality camera, let alone know anything about photography.

I take what I can get and am happy

I like the effect when you take a photo and make it look strange, stupid, and unreal!

I mean, that's a nice snapshot (although the compesitin needs work; e.g., the front of the car is too close ot the leading edge) At least he didn't go hog-wild with post-processing to make it look like ***.


I'll take that same shot and demonstrate what he did with yours.
