I know theres a few people who just did, or are going to do this, so if any of you could write something up when you were done, thatd help me alot.



haynes manual for detailed diagrams and step-by-step cant be beat.

here is the next best thing. (not very detailed, but some nice pictures)

I do have the haynes. And I had the PDF printout that DavPak arranged earlier but it was all pictures and no list of tools. I didnt really think Haynes had instructions on dropping, since they werent helpful at all for exhaust. (They only tell you how to "inspect" it). I will take a look for suspension though in it. A DIY would still be nice though if anyone has time and can hook one up.

Thanks again.

How about DIY on all the wires under the stearing wheel to install alarms and where it is located. I still have trouble figuring out some of my wires...

Someone should make better Supercharger installation instructions. With detailed pics of the vaccum lines I think the manual doesn't go into much detail.

I used the search function but I couldn't find the DIY Tutorial on how to shorten the stock transmission shift knob (auto) to make it shorter so it doesn't sit so high.

If anybody can find it or has it, it would be greatly appreciated if you can send me the tutorial or the link to it.

Thanks

You mean car sub to home computer? Or carputer?

Here's a tutorial, as requested.

1. Get your laptop and sit in your car. If you don't, get one or disassemble your current computer, hook it up in your car and continue.
2. Log onto http://www.solaraguy.org/
3. Click on the "Search" button.
4. Type in "fuel filter" and then click "Search"
5. There would be many results, but this is not to be of concern.
6. To save you time, I'll just say it's between the brake fluid reservoir and the air filter box.

7. VERY IMPORTANT: Follow the instructions mentioned. If not, your blinker fluid would run low. (all joking aside, this is the type of thing that gets people flamed, so be careful).
