Are you sure it's on your front porch? UPS said my rollbar/harnesses were on my front porch too. Had to go retrieve them from the neighbor's front porch when I got home.

lawl. I took off an hour early to spend some quality time in my hot *** garage and start soldering it up. I now see why people spend $200+ on a boomslang harness. I'm about halfway done.

Actually, I'd love to finish it up tonight, but i gotta go get margaritas and mexican food with the wife and one of her co-workers so I just got showered up.

SC is, from what I can recall - hotter than ever. Its been like over 100 every day with no end in sight here in Columbia.

Doood... How is it, have you driven the car with it yet? Tuned it? I really want one of these and would love to hear feedback on this system. Not sure if I am as man as you are... Boomslang seems like a nice alternative.

What did you pay? I'd love to hear how it works out.

You should ask Philip to put in an AEM room now. I'd rename your thread to "AEM f/ic..." so people get there butts in here.

I paid like $399 shipped off Ebay. I havent driven the car yet but hopefully I will have time to put it back together and take it for a ride, try out the datalogging this weekend. I started a forum www.aemfic.com but it's currently a ghost-town.

The install without a boomslang is not for the faint of heart, fo realz. I just triple checked EVERYTHING before doing anything. Still kinda scary though
