Default air box how to

using a drummel take a cut off wheel, and cut a U shape from above the pegs that hold it in about a inch away from the clamp, then leave a small section on the bottom for the peg supports...thats it, its a air box mod.

Default bambi mod how to

bambi mod:

Disconnect the battery.

In the kick panel on the passenger side, locate the center top relay, i think its 202 but i am prob. wrong. its the one with that jumper wire coming out



Get a female blade connector, crimp it to a piece of 18g wire and bend back the male blade at the top right if you looking at it above...

Take some of the plastic out of the fuse box around the relay to make room for the female clip.

Ground out the wire on the body.

Reconnect battery and enjoy.
