sounds like the relay is getting a constant signal, which could be the switch.

Spax is much more sporty than the other two. If you want less body roll, less dip / dive, and a much firmer ride (which may be uncomfortable for you) go with the spax.

Air meters, VAM, MAFS, etc.

First off, and please excuse my ignorance here, how does the VAM meter air? I know MAFS meter the mass (hence the name). Second, what's needed to convert the car to blow thru instead of draw thru metering? It would make life easier trying to design and intercooler setup.

Thanks in advance.

sounds like you need both a new ECT sensor and radiator fan sensor.
i got the ECT sensor locally for about $18.

does blocking off the EGR plate give you any codes? all this does is recirculate some of the exhaust gasses back into the intake during partial acceleration and idle, correct?

i'm referring to the boots on the tie rods, yes. The drivers side is cracked, and there still is some grease in there (doesn't look too bad), just wondering what to use on it.

so i guess just about anything is okay. cool.

have you considered doing a water to air intercooler? on my focus i have a PWR barrel water to air intercooler with a front mount heat exhanger. a little more involved (need reservoir, pump, heat exhanger, intercooler, etc), but there is almost no extra piping.

wow i thought i was the only one! i ended up pulling the module, putting electrical tape over the top row of connectors, and putting a cable tie around the hazard switch (not the red part, the white part) which fixed everything, sans the hazard lights. how much is a new piece for the hazard switch? ...
