    Good bye Mr. Meow!

    Big difference between stock SV and stock Murcie muffler

    Titanium Intake for the Murcielago

    I just installed a set of wrinkle-finished, pie-cut pipes that can be used with stock airboxes or with cone filters. I installed them with cone filters. I love the way the wrinkle finish matches the plenum, looks stock. My car previously had BMC high-flow filters. As for performance, I have a broken butt-dyno so I can't tell the difference but I am satisfied. Before, you could hear the air initially rush into the airbox that would eventually turn into something that was almost drone like. I always thought it was the exhaust drone but it's not. It was the airbox. Now, there's a much cleaner intake sound with these filters. I like. Thanks Nick!! Here are some pics:

    You need a new $4k mirror. LIES!!!!!!

    Since photobucket wont allow linking, I rehosted the pics: To remove the mirror: Pop off the panel exposing the bolts & the panel exposing the connector. (borrowed the pic from the web) Undo the connector, fish the mirror wires through the slot in the door panel. Unfortunately, the door panel on this car pinched the wires, so I had to loosen the door panel. Here are good instruction on door panel removal. http://www.safeer.us/how-to-fix-diy-lambor...comment-page-1/ Remove the 3 bolts holding the mirror on, fish the wires through the door, and remove the mirror. Separate the two mirror pieces: The remove the center bolt and remove the round beauty cover exposing the four bolts on the bottom of the mirror. Remove the four bolts Separate the two mirror pieces by wiggling the fixed triangle piece away from the mirror housing. The two pieces are held together by the four bolts removed in the previous step and a post that rides on a socket on the fixed triangle piece. Mirror housing post: Triangle piece socket: To disassemble the mirror housing: Pop off the mirror glass and disconnect the heater wires off the mirror glass. The glass snaps in place with the tabs circled in red. CAUTION: As you can see, the glass has no reinforcement and you will have the pry the glass off. So there's a high chance of breaking the glass. I used a small hook to lift the tabs as I pried the glass off. Lambo has revised the glass and now the glass is completely backed by plastic giving the glass much more support. New glass is about $120 from Glen @ AMH. Remove the six bolts. Take care not to lose (or forget during assembly) the plastic shield circled in yellow: remove the lone bolt circled: remove the motor assembly from the housing taking care not to damage the paint To remove the motor from the housing: Remove the three socket head bolts (there are nuts on the other side of the bolts): Undo the mirror adjuster connector and fish the wires out. You may have to loosen the bolts circled to make room to fish the connector out (there are three). Lift the motor out the housing Here's the motor: Now you have two options. One is to replace the motor with one off ebay. Unfortunately I could not find a source for a new motor only. Pros of this option is that it fits & works perfect. Con is you still have the same crappy plastic gear that will break sooner or later. If you decide to replace it, just match it to the pic above. Left or right doesn't matter. The other option is to take your motor apart and replace the gear. I found a company that 3D prints replacement gears. You can buy the gears here: http://www.gruvenparts.com/gruvenparts-com...irror-assembly/ Instructions to replace the gear are here (go to step 8 on page 13 for our application) http://www.gruvenparts.com/content/PDF/Gru..._Mirror_DIY.pdf Even though the instructions say "You Must Use the GruvenParts.com replacement motors when using this brass gear", you can get away with using your original electric motor if you use plastic washers on the 3 bolts securing the mirror to the door. Pros of going with this option are that its a much stronger gear that will probably never break. If they do, they replace it. Now, all is not perfect in the world and I hope Gruven can improve on this. The resolution of the print is not very high. So I had to use a small file to clean out some flash from between the teeth to prevent the motor from jamming. I also had to sand the face of the gear smooth to get rid of flash to also prevent jamming. Overall, I was still satisfied with the gear and would recommend it as long as you pay attention to detail. Reassemble in the reverse order and there you have it. Feel free to PayPal me a small percentage of your savings as a token of appreciation. lol Confirmed, LP670 mirror is the same. Repaired Plastique999's mirror. This particular one was stuck in the folded in position. The culprit, cracked down the middle: Here's the updated brass gear: The brass gear works much better than the old 3D printed plastic one. I'm not sure the plastic gears are still available.

    Can you hear the hydraulic pump run when you open the door?

    Check engine light

    Most small evap leaks are caused by a loose gas cap or missing/deteriorated gas cap gasket.
