    Soon I hope! Waiting for my wideband arrives, also trying to source a variable TPS thats fits the throttle body.

    The options are a BMW TPS or a TPS from an automatic MX-5.

    Are the standard ones an on-off type TPS? If so, that's whack.

    At least you should be able to swap back to the standard ECU fairly easily if anything goes amiss (not that it would, since the MX-5s have a fair bit of support with the MS crowd). Keen to see how it all pans out though.

    Slow updates lately, have had too much stuff on plus I'm moving houses in a week. But I was able to get the ECU flashed and basemap loaded.




    I also had stickers made for my blog, if anyone wants any (free of charge), just like my Facebook page and I'll get them sent out for you.

    Carbon Fibre Side Mirror Install - http://omgpham.com/carbon-fibre-side-mirror-install

    Have just gone through TWO house moves in the past week, so I haven't had much time to post up something new. But here are some photos and a walk through of the Carbon Fibre Side Mirror install.



    First step is to insert the arm into the carbon fibre housing, once that's in just tighten it gently at the top using the supplied hardware.


    At the base of the arm is a large grub screw, tighten this up to make the ball joint firmer. This can loosen over time, so just re-tighten when necessary. Then attach the base to the mounting plate using the supplied hardware.



    To remove the factory mirrors, simply pop off the plastic cover to reveal the screws. Once the mirror is off, give the surface a decent clean before proceeding to the next step.



    Make sure to use the rubber gaskets when installing the mounting plate to your door, then simply install the plate using the supplied hardware.



    The finished product!

    These style of mirrors always lingered on the back of my mind as well. But im in the same boat as Gilbert, living in south west sydney would render these mirrors

    a) Damaged in 5 minutes from some dumb lebo/asian/bogan reversing into them.

    b) Stolen in 5 minutes from some dumb lebo/asian/bogan stolering into them.

    They should at least have a cap or something for them, so you can't see the screws.. but i suppose, if some lebo/asian/bogan wanted to steal them, they could just rip them out.. as they appear to do these days :| one stupid ass ripped my friends spoiler off his liberty :/
