DIY Thread- Read Inside!! Great Info!!

I for one enjoy working on the car myself. Many of the DIY/How-do threads on this forum have been extremely helpful. I was wondering if we can have a sticky which collects all the DIY threads for member's reference. Such as the DIY header install, DIY TB install, sneaky ECU reset, service reminder reset, washer mod, etc...

Your thoughts?

Good idea...
Rennlist has something along those lines, but rather than a sticky, it's a seperate subforum... Easier to get to all the stuff in one place I find.

How about it mods?

The screen will look like below.

***Very important. You want to INCREASE the value up to it's max by clicking F5 until screen says "reached it's maximum". This will allow the fan to come on sooner. If you decrease the value on the screen, the fan will come on later in temp.

All done.
