Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Are those even legal lol? Aren’t turn signals supposed to be amber or red... that’s the only two I’ve seen... from an OEM anyway

The turn signal is the bottom row of LED's in the second to last picture (so yes they're amber)

I have a video (that I cant seem to get to load) but the turn signals are sequential lights.

That's badass! Any details on the lights?

Here's the product page. They dont sell direct so I goth them on ebay for $290 shipped (seller was dt_moto). Though I heard later if you email someone from Spyder you can get them for $250. Absolute perfect plug and play, LED's are satisfactorily bright all around, though at one point I was concerned the turn signal wasnt bright enough due to the way they fire downwards at the reflectors, but I was viewing them from very high up and close. Once you back up to where you'd roughly be stopped behind the car they're perfectly visible during the daytime.

Hmm I dig that a lot. When I go for LED headlights, I might have to pick up a set.

I had looked at a bunch of options but nothing struck my fancy which is why I held off for so long. The most popular are Spec-D's which you can get on Amazon, they're similar styled to the RS taillights, but they didnt do anything special for me. Couple that with the fact that smoked taillights are technically illegal in NY, I just wouldnt have been happy.

it was probably more like $25 and probably slightly more than half a tank. S10 had an 18 gallon tank. Tahoe has a 26 gallon tank.

Speaking of which- I dropped it off today to have the P0449 and C0161 taken care of. Also going to have them figure something out for the spare tire being stuck. Its in the way of fixing the CEL though so will see. If the mechanism that holds it up there I'm just gonna say cut it out and throw it away though. Fuck that. No use carrying around 70 pounds if its not usable.

P0449 evap code? My boss has a 2007 Suburban with the same thing. replaced some evap pump thing, came back a few months later. Was told it's a ground that shorts in the ECU. bought a refurbished ECU, and it still had the same problem. He then decide to try replace the gas cap. not sure if that ended up doing it for him.

the 2007 and 2008 model years had a TSB out for IIRC the solenoid that controls the charcoal canister valve. There's an updated part number for it. If it comes back I'm gonna plug in HPTuners and disable that code.
