All you have to do is turn on ignition to accessories, roll the window down a bit and then hold the button to have it lift until its fully lifted and still hold button for a few seconds to apply the fix. Now the auto up and auto down feature works again

Still have to calibrate it but I got the scangauge up and running today.

I still can't tell if the fans are kicking on or not.

Have notice aggressive fuel cut ( in 2 seconds) after liftoff of throttle every time

I don't clean the back sides of the Lexan very often but it doesn't look that bad to me because it begins to blend in with the silver paint when its wet. However, I can't stand the brake dust buildup before I wipe the wheels down with Quick Detailer.

I can get the skirts off fast with a boxed in wrench and a screw
driver bit in the electric drill too.

Used Lowes aluminum carpet threshold to arch the skirts and stop occational slapping at highway speeds behind semis.

Aluminum dryer vent warm air intake to the back side of the snorkle. The front is blocked with pipe insulation noodles and aluminum tape.

The vent entrance is hanging just above the exhaust heatshield between oxygen sensors.

I was seeing intake air temps very slowly rising to 120F over 10 mile commute with 70F or lower ambient temps and full grill blocks with just the back of the snorkle open to underhood air temperature.

The next step is adjustable shutters on the front.

Is that as tight a fit as it looks?

Oh yeah it is! I squashed the vent half flat to get between everything. It gets hot too, but its slow getting there. I recorded 150F IAT at 70 ambient with open grill slots. It may be better than iffy in winter but way too much in summer.

Now I'm starting on the grill shutters.

We got almost 6 inches of snow here. I had to snap a quick photo of the front of Silver as its been driven this way since it got colder with the only intentional opening being for the outside air temp sensor snorkle. The wind erosion caught my eye as well.
