    Build Guide Part 5 - Removing the interior and dash

    You are correct. There is a spring tab that goes over the stud bolt. Highlighted in yellow is the stud bolt and circled in red is the retaining clip. The screwdriver will push the clip outward away from the seat/stud. It might be tight up against the seat and may not be able to see it well...

    Custom Wraps

    Turbo +Boost Issues

    I'm not the expert here but I have a few questions. During the tune, did they look at the MAF output and see anything unusual? Unplugging it uses defaults or goes into a different mode. Could it possibly be turned around and not installed facing the right direction?

    Gilbert goblin in process
