I havent seen anything nasty yet, no boost spike because its at a very modest setting. I dont want to get greedy with it. I met up with Todd with the exact same 99 Vig as me and he is very happy with his SMBC, had it for awhile now and has NO complaints.

I'd be all over that like a cheap suit!

WyldSaabMan no problem man, Now we just need to figure out your light issues haha
01-23-2006 08:56 PM
Palmer No doubt!



I just ordered a new one for my car (thanks wyld!), and I'm going to see if you can clean it at all, and if that makes any difference. Then I will dismantle it just for the hell of it...

JB weld is good like that. Well the nipple was left in the hose and getting it out meant just chipping the plastic away since it was in there good. So instead of worrying about that winding up somewhere it shouldnt I clipped the 1/4" of hose off.

Well 10% off is better then nothin :P That was an expensive nipple. Nothing involving cars, no matter how simple the project, goes perfectly smooth

So I am going to buy a new BPC from the dealer tmro and am praying they have one in stock. But does anyone have an idea how much they cost? I might have seen someone say something like $25 but cant remember if that was for the BPC.

Thanks
I know T-5 is ~$295, not sure if the T-7 is any different.
