@  keithr182 : (21 September 2014 - 09:48 PM) I see lots of people with painted superchargers on here. Does painting it greatly affect the ability to dissipate heat? Google comes up with mixed results...
@  Nateteo : (21 September 2014 - 02:15 PM) So how's things down south of the border up here the leave are changing colour.
@  Tobias05 : (20 September 2014 - 03:55 AM) Loving my TEP transmission right now. 3.29 gears are very nice!
@  Marchi1 : (18 September 2014 - 10:57 AM) I broke one...but wasn't fully installed, but you knew that.
@  Nateteo : (18 September 2014 - 12:01 AM) Looped my power steering pump for winter and I think it might just work just need a reservoir that can hold the power steering fluid for the rack.
@  RegalTraveler : (17 September 2014 - 10:00 PM) Not me. not that I'm aware of. and L67 here. sooo... ignore this comment.
@  gojo83 : (17 September 2014 - 08:20 AM) who besides me has broke a l36 passenger side tq strut mount
@  orgedaddy : (17 September 2014 - 02:51 AM) I like my dynomax VT muffler, it has a valve to make it is sort of quiet at idle, gets loud when it opens. exhaust... 153 options if you ask 53 people.
@  RegalTraveler : (17 September 2014 - 02:25 AM) hrm. my 3yo muffler already has a hole rusted in it and it's loud at heck. Considering me being a cheapskate... any good suggestions on a quality (won't rust) muffler that has a nice sound to it? I'm more into quiet while idle and roaring while opening the throttle... but just quiet works fine too.
@  dcsipp : (15 September 2014 - 12:13 AM) Duh, wrong box
@  dcsipp : (15 September 2014 - 12:13 AM) coolant leak
@  orgedaddy : (14 September 2014 - 03:58 PM) Squeak while turning the steering wheel, I would suspect the strut mount bearing. This bearing lets the strut turn without winding up the spring.
@  FreshGS3800 : (14 September 2014 - 07:07 AM) Front driver side squeaks when I turn right. Im thinking wheel bearing. Any suggestions?
@  Frostflowz : (14 September 2014 - 01:05 AM) Stumped on my heated seats =/
@  Nateteo : (12 September 2014 - 09:41 PM) All I need is a more powerful motor.
@  TheSethDavis : (12 September 2014 - 08:18 PM) congrats nateteo
@  BlackBetty : (12 September 2014 - 08:08 AM) ty will do
@  patrick kay : (12 September 2014 - 06:28 AM) get one of those and cut after the flange so you can take your time and undo the rusty bolts at home

@  BlackBetty : (12 September 2014 - 04:40 AM) I want to go to the JY for a GTP Catback. Does anyone know what tools I will need to remove it?

OK need a conformation here.
This happens irregularly. No correlation to hitting bumps or any thing else.

On the dash, I'll get the full "Christmas lights", reset the gages and the Ding, ding, ding..... Then back to normal. Car stays running. ( crosses fingers as panic sets in )

It's just started doing this, this past week, Maybe once or twice a day.

Bad Battery connection?
or.
Ignition switch / key tumbler?

I don't remember which.

Who has "fixed this" Ign. switch by spraying contact/Maf cleaner in there?

Exactly what mine did when the ignition switch went out. I have not done the cleaning myself (just the replacement), but there is at least one good article here (or a link to clubgp) that goes through the clean up routine.
I have taken one apart though, and will say that you do need to take care. Even though the parts are all relatively large (as compared to a watch?), but are finicky enough that you would want to have steady hands and a good memory for where they all go. Or take pictures as you go.

But the symptom is definitely the same as my switch. It really would rear up when I would use the turn signal switch, and only killed the engine after it had been doing it for a few weeks.
On the other hand, my '03 LS gave no prior warning when it went out and just literally died out of the blue going down the freeway. Oddly enough, when the GS finally gave out I was going down the freeway too. I guess it just "knows" when you're in an awkward spot.

Did this happen before you did your extensive engine work? I would check all my grounds and power feeds before I condemn an ignition switch.
