I have a 1000w Frostheater up front. Instead of running the plug through the grill, I have it plugged into an extension cord that runs to the marine charger plug in my rear bumper.

Today I replaced 3 o-rings and a clip on my boost piping and did a little diy mod to the top clip-a-ma-thingy.

I'm so stoked! The o-rings and extra clamps, etc have fixed the annoying hesitation I've had since I bought this car! Near as I can tell; the pressure side would burp as the turbo came on, causing a single "pop" type hesitation. It's like a new car! Yay! now I can tune it!

Good work so far! I like those tire chains! How have they worked? Where did you get them? I really could use those up north in the winter, even with snow tires.

The chains are great. I run snows but, they're no match for my cottage driveway. They have a top speed of 20-25km/hr so they're more of an emergency device than a everyday use item. Kneeling in the snow and reaching to the back of your snow filled wheel wells to install them is not a great time but, as a saved-my-ass tool I give them a 10/10. Last winter they got me up my 300' 5-6% grade driveway after my snows refused to do the job.

I purchased them at Princess Auto for $60 on sale, regular $99 ( iirc )

The auto adjuster devises are plastic. They worked through the 5 (or so) times I used them last winter but, I'm not sure I trust them to last forever. This winter I'll carry 2 back up turnbuckles in case a tensioner breaks.

This is great news. I too have a very steep section on the cottage drive way... Had a RWD Infiniti G25 last winter and I got stuck big time in some wet snow. Needed a tractor to pull me up after messing around for an hour. I even had snows and a pile of weight in the back. Great report on the chains. Any specific info you can provide? Make, model? Were there different sizes? I just want them for my 15" or 16" wheels on the golf when I decide what winter tires and rims I'll be using.

Thank you sir!

Where is your cottage located? Our family cottage is just south of Parry Sound right near Lake Rosseau.

I head up the 400 quite a bit, so if your cottage is in the Muskokas I might see you battling cottage bound traffic someday.

I'm in Prince Edward County. No 400 to deal with but, the Montreal bound 401 drivers are every bit as nutty! I do go to Blue mountian a couple time each summer to ride but, I avoid times when the cottage crazies are mauling each other's bumpers.

Happy trails, let me know how the chains work next winter.

Do you have a thread dedicated to that boost 'burp' you cured?

Sadly the hesitation returned .

It's so weird, how intermittent it is. I inspected my cam again yesterday. It's very hard to get a good look at the lobe profiles but, I think I see some wear. I'm gonna take it to a guru for a second opinion..

So, when you did the steering wheel swap did you have to add the controller and clockspring and whatnot to get everything to work, or was it plug and play since the 04/05 cars since the Leather wheel as an option?

I've been debating doing this for a bit (2004 PD), and could only find writeups on converting ALH cars to the steering wheel.
