History
Purchased from a good friend who owns a business in Michigan. He purchased the car at an auction and sold it to me for a great price with only 36K miles. It was a theft-recovery vehicle, so I have been attempting to hide/eliminate any of the scratches or scuffs left by the idiot who stole the car.
In recent months, I installed a K&N Typhoon 69 series CAI system, which is performing GREAT! Love the new sound of my engine (perhaps a little too much), the HP gain is nice, I can feel the increased torque, and the slight gain on MPG is an added bonus to the mix. I am currently working on wiring in LED catch plates for my inside door handles and trying to find a power source to power the LEDs when the doors open. Originally, I was attempting to splice off of one of the lines from the door sensor, just to find that BOTH the lines receive power when the door is closed, and neither one has power when the door is open..so, the challenge is on!
