Wider tires, a little camber not excessive though, play with you rebound on you shocks if they pop back to fast they can cause loss of grip. Good luck

Take it out, use a multimeter to check if there is voltage coming to the back of it. If it is then it is probably because its dirty, if there is no voltage then you have an electrical issue. Check the fuse for a problem, if my memory is right it's fuse number 47. If it isn't one of those two things I probably can't help you.

Scoops:
Better highway response and mileage
lower intake air temperatures (More efficient mixing of air and fuel)
What got me started was i wanted all of those nice things above and wanted to make something with my own hands.

Petg, they will be molded.

The original mold is done, but i need to make a base to mount it to so the petg doesn't get sucked under. Running into problems here, i tried clay and plaster neither worked. Going to try epoxy this time, i had them on my car for about a year before and it really pulls stronger at highway speeds feels like the car wants to go.
