  1. Hi Ben,

     

    Do you know what happened to your black S4s after you sold it? Where is it now?

  3. 3m 1080 vinyl. I wasn't sure how I'd like it. It's the best vinyl to work with and easily removable.
  4. Wheels are custom made gfg cliff 3 piece. 20x10 & 20x8.5
  5. I use a yellow top optima battery.their expensive, but worth it.
  6. After a few changes. The hook is just on there temporarily.
  7. I've been searching for 2 years for the setup on that red car. Im to the point of finding a carbon fiber fabricator to build a one off set. If anyone can find those flares and canards please post a link. Sj didn't sound like a reasonable option.
  8. I put a stripe down the center of my car. I used 3m 1080 matte black. This 1080 vinyl is awesome to work with. It will easily come off and won't leave residue. I hadn't seen an esprit with a fat stripe so I tried it. Enjoy... Or hate.
  9. What does the boost gauge say when you floor it?
  10. Well, I have the 6 piston calipers up front and the anti squeel shims only help the center piston. This is why they were squealing so bad. I replaced the pads with hawk and greased them.
  11. Its top right of the dash. Previous owner unplugged mine to fool me. I had 227 hp before I figured it all out.It wouldn't spin the tires.Now its a demon. I had to take the top of the dash off to see the plug. That should be your first act. I spent more than the cost of the car trying to make it faster. In the end, it was in limp mode the whole time. The repair parts were 200$. Also, if you're only getting 1/2 bar of boost maybe the boost solenoid is stuck. Its between the wastegate and turbo. There's a rubber hose from turbo to solenoid to wastegate.
  12. I would make sure the check engine light comes on when you turn the key. I spent 2 years unimpressed with the s4s performance. Finally I got the issue resolved. Although I've had cars over 600hp, the s4s feels comparable. The power mine puts out now is too much for the wheels to handle. If I floor it in first or second at 3k the wheels start spinning. Not by dumping the clutch. If yours won't spin the wheels you might have an easy fix.
  13. Does anyone know part numbers for hawk pads. Front and rear for the pnm kit.
