    I will always remember this ^^^ because of this picture. You can see it just below the headlight.

    C'mon urby, there had to be an easier way to get to your PCM!!




    Soo....my new magnavolt should be showing up tomorrow. I spent some time tonight grounding the connection to 3 additional spots, filing down to bare metal for each to assure a good ground connection. Hopefully that should prevent any more fried magnavolts and I'll finally be able to take one more step out of mod hell.

    Re: Everything I ever wanted to know about a Maggie,,,and your gonna tell me!!!

    I'm back in business baby!

    David sent out my new magnavolt for a next day early morning delivery (nice surprise). It already showed up at the office, and I went out and put it in. Started up perfectly, good idle, no choking. I haven't gotten a chance to take it out yet and unfortunately it's looking like rain. I'll let you all know how she's performing after I get a chance to take a drive.

    Thank you Brian and David at Magnuson for all the excellent customer service!

    Boost Gauge.

    Required, Recommended or Unnecessary?

    And yeah, you have got rain headed your way. It blew through here between 3-5 am and I got to wake up the whole city by sending 120ish big ass airplanes flying everywhere but where they are supposed to be because thats where the level-5 thunderstorm was sitting.

    If your new Magnavolt came UPS, your welcome. If not some guy in Memphis hooked you up but he didnt have a lightning storm all around him to do it!!

    I think A/F and fuel pressure gauges are more important. This magnavolt issue that I had is making me want those gauges for safety reasons, should this magnavolt go bad too. I want to be able to monitor those things. Boost I think is more of a "cool" gauge, but not necessary.

    Are you an air traffic controller? If you are, thanks for letting UPS through!

    Well the rain stopped and the roads dried out so I took a 1 hour test drive after work today. All is well finally! The car is running great and, of course, FAST.

    I'm pulling for ya Tony, it'll all be over soon and you'll be enjoying your V in a whole new way!

    Thanks for everyone that helped along the way, this forum rocks.

    Good timing. Everything got here a little while ago. I had to pay the difference between second day, and overnight. Otherwise I wouldn't get it till next week. I'll try to put it on tonight.
    Mine was the "nose cone" bearings. Which on our cars, is in the back. They also changed the rotors.
    I'll post up after install.
    And YES, I am connecting another ground wire.
