Alabama Rider

Hey, new to the forum. Just signed up because I can't see any posts with images or download links for FTECU maps any longer, and the search works just fine for everything I need. Currently converting my '13 for WERA/track use only.

I'm going to spam my own intro to hit the "5 post" count. Sorry.
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 5 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.

Re: Alabama Rider

Recently installed an M4 Y-pipe to make room for the belly pan. Had a Graves slip-on from before. This led me to the FTECU harness. Now going to start playing around with flashes.

Re: Alabama Rider

Optimal body kit. Read a bunch of reviews on here and would agree with what was said. It wasn't perfect, but fortunately a lot of the mis-alignments were "covered up" by the frame sliders. Cutting out the pocket near the sliders helped, too. The tail and draft piece were the worst fitment, but I managed to pull those tight and close the gap fairly well. Can't complain considering they were less than half of Sharkskinz.

Re: Alabama Rider

Going to safety wire pins and bolts next, and then build a DIY paint booth. Upper, front wheel cover, and tail are going black. Lower and draft are going red. Not going to mess with a two-tone job.
