Ran into that issue with mine. They fit like shit. The first set was used and someone already fucked it up.

that's just nasty.

details? build thread?
I don't have a full build thread just posts here and there.

a full build thread would just be 90% me swearing.

I plan on LS swapping the car in the fall, I should do a build thread on that. or not, depending on how sacrilegious that is.

I hadn't heard of the clock spring causing the ABS light, I also have DSC light and brake light.

Here are the codes from INPA:

Few weeks ago, I've had almost the same replacement and in my case - it was much harder, so long story short the only thing that helped me a lot was Tap and Die set (one of these: https://cozyhousetoday.com/best-tap-die-set-review/), with all the screwing tools it has in it, it became much easier and pretty smooth. I take it everywhere I go with my babe on the wheels.

Well at least they fit in! Looks like you're gonna have to do one hell of a tape job when paint rolls around!

Did you wire them to the fogs or a separate switch?

Swapped my hpfp this morning, pretty easy overall. Biggest pain was removing the rear bolt for the hpfp, and had to be careful re-installing it so it wouldn't drop but I had a trick up my sleeve! I'm sure removing the intake manifold would've made it easier but it's definitely not necessary. Car is running smoother, and definitely feel a better throttle response!

Pic 1: Old hpfp out

Pic 2: Old hpfp from 2010

Pic 3: New hpfp is in!

Pic 4: Gotta work with what you got

Got it back with the MSport front bumper, thanks to some flying highway debris and Allstate. Went for an evening mountain drive to celebrate.

No, itís a rep from Ikon Motorsports. Great fitment and quality, though, and the body shop didnít need the MSport fender liners or brake ducts that I bought to make it work.
