  1. Yep the one in 3rd gen works. It's almost exactly the same.
  2. These were the lights I used : YITAMOTOR LED Light Bar 2PCS 18W... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01A6TNWHW?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share I used existing holes where the hood meets the grill to mount them. Ran wiring through the stiffener channels on the underside of the hood. Brought the wires into the existing light enclosure and soldered them to the contacts for the factory bulb. The factory switch inside the bulb housing turns them on and off. the only issue with them is clearance to close the hood. The lights have to be rotated down parallel to the grill to close the hood, but it's super easy to do. The brackets they come with pivot.
  3. I completely agree. I did it because the factory light was so useless it may as well not be there. It was just enough light to make incredibly angry.
  4. Underhood light mid using the write up in the tech section. Love it!

  6. Getting a little better with it. Learn something new with it every day.
  7. Anyone happen to have an hx35 compressor wheel laying around?
  8. Got the turbo back off and it appears that I didn't have the snap ring fully seated. Shaft spins perfectly fine. Coincidentally, here's a screenshot of where I was when it let go
  9. It was probably caused by whatever dummy rebuilt it.
  10. We'll test drive was an absolute failure. Half a mile from the house I heard something let go. The noise it made sounded like a boot getting blown off. I shut it down and pulled over. First thing I saw was the large snap ring holding the compressor housing on had let go. Then I pulled the bhaf off and saw the damage to the wheel. Not sure what happened first, but she's toast.
  11. Turbo is back together and going on right now! On and running. No test drive yet.
  12. I'm just doing what DAP said to since I have a mill. Lol
  13. This is a standard HX35. While apart for rebuild I am doing machine work per DAP's advice. Opening the hole and milling the divider allows the flow to the wastegate from all 6 cylinders instead of just the front three. Results in lower EGT's.
  14. I'm an hour south of Dave and the winds picking up and clouds rolling in.
