Yeah I thought this section of the forum was a little crowded with stickies so I figured I'd clean it up a bit. Go ahead and post it in it's own thread, then just PM me or message me a link to it and I'll get it up here.

I'm also excited for this DIY, it should take care of a lot of questions the n00bz have!

I'm gonna be doing my tstat next week and plan on writing a DIY for it, so be expecting that one aswell.

They've basically got all of these DIY's on Vortex, but it'd be nice to not have to direct JJ users to another site for some help, ya know?

Ya, and the more information there is out there on the web, done by the more people form different views. The better chance some one has of finding their answer.

Well I suck at life and didn't make a DIY for the tstat housing replacement. It took about 2 hours, and I started on Wednesday, it was supposed to rain so I wanted to get as much done as possible before it started raining. So that meant no time for pics :(

Go for it, I'm sure it'll help out a lot around here. I see threads about that kinda stuff all the time but I'm not big on the electrical stuff.

Updated with Eric's TIP install and seperated them by engine/mechanical and cosmetic mods for ease.
